    Pros

    the cafeteria was around the corner...

    Cons

    no discounts for cafeteria, no free parking for employees, u park 1/2 mile away and wait for a shuttle, union dues, retirement plan takes a big chunk of your check, way to much work, it never ends, management expects way to much, never appreciated.

    Stop micro managing, listen to your employees, trust your employees, don't belittle your employees.

    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.
