    I have been working at UC Davis Health System full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits if you can survive the bully / good-old-boys culture.

    Cons

    Information Technology has a pervasive bully and cliquish culture that favors some (white male) over others. The IT organization has a bully/ cliquish culture with an embedded "cover-up" mentality that has resulted in a long-standing (decades-long) organization of incompetence. A good-old-boys club,, that treats minorities differently and rewards those who are willing to throw others under-the-bus to receive favors. This culture discourages open dialogue and reporting of wrongdoing - creating a culture of cover-up and rampant bullying behavior where discrimination against women (especially) is an embedded component. If I could give a minus rating for minorities, I would.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a zero-tolerance policy of abuse of the "Principles of Community" and establish an open-door policy that creates an atmosphere where employees can bring issue to the attention of management without fear of retaliation (instead of covering up). Establish accountability for actions - especially in the senior management tiers.

    Pros

    Exposure to top technologies, industry leading network and data security. WOrk with visionaries in Healthcare and medical research!

    Cons

    Sometimes stifling state bureaucracy makes project completions difficult. Also makes advancement impossible unless you leave and reapply.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the bureaucracy! Other universities and medicla canters are full of former UCDHS employees you did not have to lose.
