    Pros

    Excellent health benefits and pension. Good people work here. At the end of the day, the work you do is rewarding.

    Cons

    It depends on your department. Low staff morale and high turnover, but nothing was ever done about it. Some senior managers should take a class on management. Unethical behavior. No work/life balance. Extremely outdated systems and inefficient processes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff.

    I worked at UCLA Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    UCLA is a great place to work. Decent benefits. Company cars to use. Decent pay

    Cons

    Diversity - Hire more people than just Filipinos! Most of management and the team are Filipino. I notice that when most work places have one minority group as a majority it is harder to fit in with the team in general. This applies to the deskside team and not UCLA as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    The deskside team I feel is difficult to work with. And their expectations are not clear. They need to provide better feedback in regards to short comings. As this affects the team.

    I worked at UCLA Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    UCLA Health is a generally respected and well known organization within the healthcare environment. It is growing rapidly and shows that it performs well with regard to state care and experience ratings.

    Cons

    I experienced a hostile work environment within the Faculty Practice Group. I was constantly bullied and coerced by my supervisor. After numerous complaints from multiple employees, my supervisor was 'no longer with the organization'. No explanation was given, and no further investigation into the complaints was communicated to those affected by this.

    Advice to Management

    Be involved and provide supports to employees. Put internal politics aside. Human capital is your greatest asset, and that should be recognized.
