    I have been working at Scripps Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Scripps Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employee oriented company. They will watch out for you if you give back to the company. I must say, The most fair company with whom I have ever worked. Not the highest pay, but certainly more than the average for the area.

    Cons

    Chronically understaffed. Still a big business and feels like the staff worker doesn't have a voice.

    Advice to Management

    Practical patient care guidelines should eminate from the bedside on up, and not from the administrative and executive offices on down.
    The Admins and Exec's job is to make sure the company stays viable. However, it is important to remember our cause, first, foremost, and decidedly paramount to any other is to give quality patient care without compromise.
    Understaffing IS compromise of patient care ... and unfair to staff.

    I have been working at Scripps Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is competitive. Health plan is good.

    Cons

    Disrespect to employees is at an all-time high. No management support for analysts or engineers. Management here at Scripps talks a VERY good game but there is very little work/life balance or respect for employees. Employees are berated and devalued.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid hiring project managers to manage core teams. Avoid managers who lack both empathy and any grasp of what the people who work for them do day to day. If you're truly seeking a "world class team", then you should start with your directors.

    I worked at Scripps Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Patient interaction, access to medical procedures, face to face with some of the best RN and Doctors in the world.

    Cons

    As a volunteer, we were not able to do as much as I would have liked. There was insurance issues with involvement with patients. However when doctors say otherwise, it became fun

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

    Pros

    Corporate commitment to use layoffs as a last resort, including reducing top salaries and positions prior to rank and file.

    Coworkers who genuinely care about their work and each other.

    Cons

    It's still a bureaucracy with attendant politics and egos.

    Pay for non-physician medical staff reportedly lower than average despite corporate claims to the contrary.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with those in the trenches before adjusting policy.

    Place more value on preventative care for patients.

    Create advisory committees from rank and file workers with the power to change things.

    I have been working at Scripps Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Love that!!
    Some really great co-workers.
    Good Café on site for a while but now they buy processed and sell it higher priced then all the restaurants on the corner.

    Cons

    Scripps might have a "great place to work" status but the Business Services at 4S is horrible. I've worked here a few years now and the department didn't do well on the 'great place to work' survey so didn't give it to us last year!! It's a new building for Scripps and they are letting it get trashed. It's filthy and poorly maintained. Really.
    There is no job training here. Not even job guides that enable you to learn on your own. New hires aren't given even the basics and there is no continuity for how to proceed...it all depends on who you ask because no one is taught procedures. Going to Epic soon and the super-users who get special training to help the others on the floor are just getting the same class as everyone else but they take it 3 times! Once, again, there won't be anyone who really knows the answers to problems of software or coding or billing or insurance! Turn over is terrible which shows how bad things are because the benefits are good.
    Management is unbelievable. They never live by their own rules. They have no idea how to get their job done. Obviously, promotion to that position has nothing to do with expertise and everything to do with 'friends' in high places. Promoted beyond their competence level for sure. Always in meetings but never training or supporting the staff. Sometimes the results are a financial disaster and guess who they blame...They have % raises and job reviews that are a joke. Impossible to excel but managers can make their favorites look good even when they are known to cheat at production and quality.
    There are some good supervisors but the directors and managers are slowly weeding them out...sad.
    Can't bring in the $ so they are cutting supplies, services at the employee level. Have to get your toilet paper early in the day! No joke. Can't keep trash cans emptied so they just keep removing them! There aren't any at your desk or in the parking structure any more.
    There was a great café there for a couple months but it slowly started serving mostly all previously processed/baked goods and the prices go up and up and up.

    Advice to Management

    You should be fired. You need to be nice for a change. Actively listen to the people who are doing the work for you and you will accomplish more. Stop breaking all your rules in front of your workers while you call them on the carpet for every little thing. Figure out how to do some training and make some processes that will enable people to do their jobs. You will be amazed at how better it goes!
    Pay attention. Morale is sinking every day for a reason...
