    Pros

    Management did not micromanage, the benefits are truly amazing and the people are quite nice.

    Cons

    Upper management and CEOs have made some debilitating decisions in managing people, resources and finances.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those who have done/ are doing the job, not the analyst/project managers who think they 'got it' in an afternoon. Project managers and education liaisons seem like dead weight.

    Pros

    Some good people. They do good work in San Diego serving the public. The health benefits are good Work life balance is encouraged

    Cons

    They're scattered and without direction. They're inconsistent in their decisions and change their minds day to day. There's a let's try it philosophy that's frustrating. The rules change so much, you can't keep up. So far behind in technology it's laughable

    Advice to Management

    You're top heavy in your leadership and don't have enough people doing the job to provide good service. The matrix structure doesn't work when you have competing bosses giving you different direction

    I have been working at Scripps Health (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good and not real expensive other than the retirement plan which could be better. Pto accumulation is also decent.

    Cons

    75% of the staff that was there 6 months ago have left. The turnover makes the job very high stress with unrealistic expectations and long hours with no breaks and short lunches at best.
    Training needs improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Be more selective with new hires and be honest with them about the high stress chaotic environment they are coming in to. It's sink or swim.

    I have been working at Scripps Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary and Benefits are good, about midrange for market. CEO and Executive leadership is outstanding. Patient Care is primary focus.

    Cons

    IT Management opportunities, promotions are minimal and internally, pretty political.

    Advice to Management

    Create a greater path for IS Managers to move to the next level. Seems kind of arbitrary right now

    Pros

    Great benefit and work/life balance.

    Cons

    It's extremely difficult to move up or to move internally to a different department for career change unless it's a lateral move.

    Pros

    IT department is very cutting edge (for the industry). Lots of great people working for Scripps.

    Cons

    Because it is a 24/7/365 shop, you can work a lot of hours. BUT management is pretty good at keeping an eye out for burn-out.

    Advice to Management

    Doing good. No real advice at this time.

    I have been working at Scripps Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, that's it for now.

    Cons

    I've only been here for a few months, and unfortunately, I think I may have expected too much from Scripps. Management doesn't have any time for you. People are unprofessional. If you make any kind of mistakes, everyone will know about it. Very uncomfortable environment. I thought Scripps would have a decent environment since it's been included on the best 100 companies to work for almost every year. Maybe it truly is, and my department is probably an exception. The work itself is manageable since I love patient care, but the environment is horrible. Too much gossip, and negativity.

    Advice to Management

    Training class on how to be professional at workplace.
