    UC San Diego Health - An Exceptional Organization

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    UCSDH cares deeply about the community and strives to provide exceptional health care, through cutting-edge technology. As a teaching and research facility, UCSDH has a duty to society to mold exceptional health care providers and contribute to the problem-solving cause of health epidemics.

    Cons

    I've had mostly positive experiences during my 18 years of service. Issues that needed improvement usually do not represent the organization at large, but even so, the organization is always looking to improve in all aspects of the business, from service to leadership and management.

    High quality research institution

    Jul 19, 2022 - Research Assistant in San Diego, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Pros include getting to be involved with cutting edge research at a respected institution. The staff and researchers are generally very competent for the most part.

    Cons

    There wasn't much in the way of formalized training beyond the online modules that they provided, which is to say that the training is what you make it. If you are willing to invest in training, you can learn and grow, but the training in my case wasn't as formalized or structured as I had perhaps hoped. Also the pay was fairly minimal, although I'm not sure if that's the case for other staff.

    Although it’s one of the best hospitals in San Diego…

    Pros

    There is a lot of room for the company to grow, not in size, but maturity. Administration and management should not expect to hold employees accountable for certain things while avoiding their own accountability at all costs.

    Cons

    Employees have to pay for parking and it is pretty normal to get your car broken while you’re working. While false claims about being able to place security cameras in the parking lot are touted, it’s not uncommon to get a ticket if you don’t pay for parking. While ticket trigger happy it doesn’t appear they have any sort of reasonable security protecting their employees vehicles. Who is going catch the ball of responsibility? The university, management, the union? The security team? Nobody wants to be liable and it’s shows. Why has this problem existed for over ten years an has not been addressed? Hard workers don’t like walking to a parking lot with urine scented elevators and stairs only to find their car broken into after working for 12 hours to save a life. I believe we can all do better, but not if we keep ignoring the basic fundamentals of safety.
