- 1.0Nov 29, 2023BLANK AST 3Current Employee, more than 8 yearsSan Diego, CA
Here you work for a LARGE healthcare organization who hires majority of employees as pier diem so they don't have to offer you healthcare insurance benefits. They automatically take 7.5% from your payheck for pension. AND no one tells you at the orientation that YOU DO NOT NEED TO GIVE THE UNION 2% OF YOUR PAY !! If it is a union position, you will represented by the union. Under U.S. Supreme Court ruling Janus v. AFSCME, public employees can no longer be required to pay union dues or fees as a condition of employment. If you DID sign the unions membership form, good luck trying to stop them from deducting 2% from your paycheck! AFSCME deceives employees into signing membership forms (which they never provide a copy to you) with fine print waiving their right to resign except during a short annual window period.
You can convert to a career position without the unions help by filling out a form on the UCSD website after you are an employee for a year and have worked 1000 hours.

Large academic center with immense resources. The clinical trials office provides an opportunity for really rewarding work. The job is very stable and and has really good benefits.
There is very little room for growth within the clinical trials department. The pay is good for entry level positions but not competitive as you grow in your career.

supportive culture and good benefits
parking is expensive and far from the hospital building, the walk adds at least 10min to transportation time

A great place to work. They pay very well and health and time off benefits are great!
People who have worked there for a long time are a little resistant to changes.

Great benefits. Great people to work with. You will learn a lot.
Prioritizes profits over patients. Management needs work.

Flexible on working from home vs in the office, able to make your own hours however this likely comes down to PI’s preference/expectations
I’ve been working here for about a year, I don’t have any cons so far!
