High stress
MRI Technologist (Per Diem) (Former Employee) –  Anaheim, CAJuly 20, 2018
Only worked here as a per diem technologist so that meant two or three times per month. It's a first level trauma center so alot going on in the ER at times. Also in patient scans happen often as well since it is a hospital. Hardest part is being by yourself with no assistance since you are not a regular employee. Not too much enjoyment since it's a trauma center, it's high stress.
Pros
None
Cons
Stressful environment.

Interaction with patient's
Principal Admitting Worker (Former Employee) –  Orange, CAFebruary 20, 2018
It was an awarding experience to be able to assist patient's with their authorizations and referrals to UCI when making them feel secure and assure that we received their information and giving them what to expect during the approval process.

Poor top management
Manager (Former Employee) –  Orange, CAJanuary 10, 2018
CEO that has no business/operational background, toxic politics with the campus, and a frenzied pace. Communication to employees is lacking, and the presence of labor unions only acts as a distraction.
Pros
Lots of time off, pension
Cons
Poor leadership, no culture of accountability

Personable, friendly group of co workers
Administrative Analyst/ Human Resources Assistant (Current Employee) –  Orange, CAJanuary 3, 2018
Treats you like neighbors, disjointed at times. Some coworkers are willing to help more than others.

The hardest part of job is that all are not receptive, open to new employees or takes a long time to welcome new folks.
Pros
Benefits are good
Cons
Sometime hard to move up because no where to go

Great place to work. Began my career with UC Irvine Health in 2000. Over the years, I had the opportunity to work in 4 different departments within the organization and enjoyed by tenure there! Unfortunately, I was laid off in November 2016 with 175 other employees.

Great Salary and Benefits
Call Center Manager (Former Employee) –  Orange, CAJanuary 30, 2017
The compensation package is exceptional! Colleagues genuinely care about patients and each other. As with any organization, there are challenges, the need to stretch every dollar often means employees feel stretched beyond their limits.

good company
LVN (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CANovember 17, 2016
UCI is a wonderful company to work for but only if you have a permanent position. If you work for their temp department, they do not consider the years you have as experience, and the pay is bad if you are not working Per Diem. Only if you get a permanent position for them will your years count as experience and you will be paid as such which is the same amount as a Per Diem only full time.

Busy, productive
SECURITY OPERATIONS MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Orange, CAOctober 13, 2016
It typically takes several weeks to complete a good plan. Most of that time is spent in research and re-thinking your ideas and assumptions. But then, that’s the value of the process. So make time to do the job properly. Those who do never regret the effort. And finally, be sure to keep detailed notes on your sources of information and on the assumptions underlying your financial data.

Typical fast food job
Campus Temp (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAOctober 25, 2015
Working fast food blows. As far as it goes, you have to know spanish to have any friends that are staff. The majority of people talk to you like youre an idiot, even if you haven't done anything wrong. Managers will offer you hours when you don't necessarily want them, and send you home when you need them. This was as part-time though.

Everyone is soooooo miserable here
IT Manager (Former Employee) –  Orange, CAJune 12, 2015
Horrible company. The most disorganized company I've ever been at. Managers ripping each other, tons of taxpayer dollars wasted, management team clueless to the dysfunction. The only thing middle management cares about is where to go to lunch.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything.

Dynamic Work Environment
Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee) –  Ambulatory Clinics and HospitalApril 27, 2015
I love the academic environment. There are always improvement projects and research going on. It is wonderful to have residents and students around. It keeps us all on our toes to continually teach, and provide the best example possible. The hospital is beautiful. Much of the staff are "lifers", so there is a feeling of family and community. The clinics are improving their same-day access, so that is a great thing. I have worked here for many years and have loved all of my jobs, and all of the patients that I have cared for.

Typical day at work begins with caring, problem solving and dedication. Hardest part is dealing with the passing of a patient. Most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know every patient and guest. I have learned to embrace all of life's precious gifts.
Pros
