      Pros

      Vested program, retirement, occasionally - reasonable salary, accruing of vacation is reasonable.

      Cons

      Low in recruiting, retaining, and promoting African Americans beyond entry to mid-level leadership. No succession planning. Creating own rules to hiring/promoting. Over use of “interim” to placement scenarios. Selective in who internally is extended interview to progress forward. Overlooking qualified candidates or effort to assist internal candidates who want career growth.

      Mentor staff looking for leadership especially when they meet/exceed requirements. Promote diversity for all ethnic groups. Perform exit interviews with intent to document internal issues. HR to monitor candidate selection process to assure its fair and ethical.

        I have been working at UC San Diego Health full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        The benefits are decent. Amazing staff and some of the coolest people I've met over the years. Good work experience.

        Cons

        People are leaving in droves. No contracts being made with the unions, no pay raises for over two years, no cost of living increases, and serious pay inequities across the board. Our team has almost vanished, no new members have been hired, and the work keeps piling up. Management apparently does not listen to its own staff and our HR Department is a complete joke.

        Advice to Management

        Secure a contract with your unions. Address pay inequities. Pay hardworking and dedicated staff appropriately. Staff teams properly!

        UC San Diego Health does not have Assistant Buyers and our Supply Chain/Procurement Office is not in La Jolla. This comment is most likely from a different division within UCSD and Glassdoor has been asked to remove it.
