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

    Pros

    Steady wage increases, constant support from management- they fight for their employees and listen to the feedback given, really great co-workers who support each other and work together, A LOT of room for growth (they not only encourage it, but will assist you in achieving it), excellent benefits that are not too pricey, education benefits (tuition reimbursement, scholarships), career coaching and "other-side-of-the-fence program" to try other areas of work, phenomenal resources for employees who need assistance in health, family, financial, or legal concerns, psychologists to assist with burn-out, stress, or life in general, assistance with transportation and van-pool costs, free gym on-site at many locations, amazing discounts throughout the community on things like shopping, dining, movies, theater etc... resources to assist in family care like child care, adult care, in-home assessments, honestly the list goes on and on. Scripps cares about their employees and their community, and that means something.

    Cons

    It is a very large organization and it can create a disconnect between departments and locations in regards to communication and how workflows affect one another.
    The high performance standards could be stressful for some if they're looking for a place they can float through the work day, but for others who like to be pushed or who enjoy a challenge it could be a pro.

    I worked at Scripps Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Scripps is a great company to work for. They promote teamwork, education and social activities outside of work. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Like all health facilities, they are very busy. There is not enough time in a day to complete all tasks.

    Advice to Management

    The management at Scripps Coastal Oceanside are great. Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Scripps Health full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay, newer hospital, epic charting

    Cons

    The only place I've ever worked that management will withhold education to employees. No weekend differential.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have better education programs for employees. Ask your nurses their opinions before implementing stupid policies.

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

    Pros

    The physician I work directly with is awesome.

    Cons

    This is my first time working for a company that takes from your PTO for every single little thing. There is no paid vacation at Scripps, you are paying yourself from your PTO. Wake up, that is NOT a benefit. If you are to leave work early due to an illness or emergency, the time must be taken from your PTO. I would rather not get paid for those hours not worked. This is a huge problem and is detrimental to the employees accrued PTO.

    Advice to Management

    Go to the top of the totem pole and fix this PTO issue!

    Pros

    Good salary and good education opportunities.

    Cons

    Both Manager and director are very abusive to the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to correct the problem. This is one of the reasons they are loosing money. Staff is hired trained and they leave
    due to the way they treated.

    Pros

    Encinitas is the best location to work at for Scripps

    Cons

    Terrible management. There's no accountability. It's always short staffed. Scheduling is always and issue. No respect for RT's here. No protocols.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your RT's better.

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

    Pros

    Steady. Good benefits. Great PTO.

    Cons

    Lowest paying hospital out of the 3 major hospitals in San Diego county (sharp, UCSD, Scripps), and I've worked at 2 of the 3 thus far and being considered for the 3rd. very high turn over rate. My department alone lost at least 6 in the last year. They simply moved on to higher paying hospitals.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is lacking. When a manager can't keep staff, there's an underlying problem.

    Large and well-known organization

    Cons

    Low comp compared to local competitors. Limited interest in developing staff and providing growth opportunities for top performers.

    Address comp issues to retain and recruit talent. Evaluate staff in a meaningful way to identify top performers and give them opportunities for growth.
