    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    People and coworkers are fantastic (this may be hit or miss depending on department... there are a lot of them); leadership was great when I was there, though a bit volatile, so this may no longer be the case; great benefits with lots of options; cushy, pleasant working environment; cafeteria food is great; this health system really does make a positive difference in the community and provides a great learning experience for future doctors, and those are both things to be proud of.

    Cons

    Hit or miss work experience depending on what department you work in, employee parking lot and shuttle service for low level staff is atrocious, parking enforcement is ridiculously stringent and loves giving employees parking tickets at any possible opportunity, interfacing with the low-performing departments is a nightmare (if that's in your job description), compensation is likely to be below industry average depending on what you're doing, ability to actually get stuff done is often hamstrung by cumbersome and/or outdated policies (welcome to healthcare, I guess) and plenty of red tape

    Advice to Management

    Layoffs and shift towards cost-cutting in general was the wrong strategic direction.
