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

    Pros

    I was initially on the fence about leaving my prior industry to go into health care administration, but I have been very happy with my choice since coming to work for UCI Health. The staff I work with is professional and warm and for the first time in my career, I feel genuinely valued and at ease in my job. The physical work environment is very nice and the chiefs of staff in our department continuously go out of their way to express their appreciation for our efforts. So far I am very happy. The pension is great (and rare), and paid time off/holidays are abundant.

    Cons

    The pay does start out a bit less than the private sector, however just the cost of benefits in my previous job would devour the higher pay I received.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for employees to advance in their current position vs forcing them to apply for different jobs in other departments to get a promotion or a raise.

    I have been working at UC Irvine Health full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits as vision and dental are non employee contributed.

    Cons

    The leadership in more than one department of the University is not great. I have worked in 3 different departments here and also heard from other departments of the poor and lack of leadership. The pay is lower than the rest of the industry. People leave UCI to make more money.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers & staff supportive & friendly. Great place to gain valuable experience. Good benefits & pension (b4 2014) but takes a big chunk out of salary.

    Cons

    Horrible management on all levels, not knowledgeable in the areas they manage, resistant to employee input, hostile environment, no work-life balance, very long hours, understaffed & overworked, low employee morale, high management & employee turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, learn to take advice on your management style & be willing to change. Upper management, stop hiring people who only look good on paper.

    I worked at UC Irvine Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing !!!! From $25 for PPO to best coverage of eye and dental coverage at no cost.

    Cons

    Too many old(age) managers who really are stuck in their ways (Been managers for 20+ years) are not willing to hear or even consider changes unless it comes from corporate. Corporate is ran be old, white, republican homophobics. They treat you well when they want.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees needs, hire YOUNG, inexperienced folks. Healthcare needs new eyes, ears that dont know dramas and fresh air in the office.
