    Pros

    Rich benefit set with moderate pay scale. Stable organization.

    Cons

    Departmental in-fighting, lack of strategic vision in the light of healthcare reform.

    Advice to Management

    Define strategic plan and aggressively purse. Don't manage like your living in the 1970s.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work at El Camino was that they realized the importance of nurses. It was a nurses hospital. this was good for the patients because nurses spend more time with patients than doctors and know their needs. Over time this was over done and anyone with a license was recruited. As the number of poor nurses grew so did our influence until management became anti-nurse and blame nurses for their own financial incompetence.

    Cons

    This place has become so anti-nurse that the management no longer defends nurses, no matter how outrageous the situation the customer is always right, even when science and rational thought would dictate otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Quit doing the MAGNET dance and do what is right, not what LOOKS right on paper. In religion this is called repentance, a return to the true path after being lost.

    Pros

    Great staff, clean and organized, high standards for patient privacy and infection control. The pay is better than most other hospitals in the area, or anywhere really

    Cons

    Does not take care of staff, they don't care what hardships they put employees through during reorganization, plenty of ways to help displaced workers into other departments but they refuse to let them transfer to open positions. They do not offer growth opportunities to their employees, but will offer positions to external candidates of equal experience and education.

    Advice to Management

    Why pay thousands of dollars into education for your employees and then refuse to allow them to advance their careers within the organization? You need to help out the employees who have proven themselves to be hard working and loyal to the company. You also need to allow current employees who have been laid off to fill positions they are capable of doing, and not fight the processes every step of the way.
