    Pros

    There are some good people here with the right idea...they need support and for others to stand behind them.

    Cons

    Titles are everything here.
    More education is needed around using big data, analytics, reporting. Common to hear a story being crafted from your data that is not 100% and used for dept specific purposes.
    CEO, Rice, is rude and unapproachable, especially to those she is not politically aligned with.
    Behind the curve in terms of analytics. Need fresh new blood almost everywhere to recharge, innovate, and shake up old bad habits/views. Those who feel threatened and withhold information or processes go undisciplined.

    Advice to Management

    Culture change is slow. Look to successful companies and their culture model, how employees are treated, how they collaborate, how they reward, how they view failed attempts or risky thoughts. Change your mngmts process around all this as an initiative, a more concrete path for them to follow.

    I worked at UC Davis Health System full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I love helping people. The appreciation some patients and families have is very heartfelt. Patients coming back saying thank you makes happy tears come to my eyes. Working with the best co-workers.

    Cons

    Parking is an issue. Take home pay is low by the time you pay for benefits, retirement, parking, union dues, uniforms, and more. Major micromanage, short staffing and everything is based on finances equipment for patient and layoffs. Better care if you are a VIP. Nepotism is a problem and job advancement for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop doing your algorithms of how it is suppose to work come and observe the real world at UC. Appreciate and recognize axillary staff. Nurses being over paid for doing analysis work. Experience employees are leaving replaced by inexperienced who do not get impute. Priority for funds go to a name change really.
