I have been working at John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Excellent Benefits; low insurance cost (HMO and PPO available), plenty of sick and vacation days (sick days you use them or lose them when employment ends), most administrative positions get all federal holidays off, affordable parking fee (under $100 a month), attractive pension plan, descent life insurance cost. Also, easy access to public transportation ( Blue Line and Damen Bus.) Many nearby restaurants and a close train ride to downtown. Grateful patients that will make you feel good about servicing them.Cons
- Scary walk to parking lots
- It's all about who you know and not what you know; people are not promoted based on experience or performance. Most employees are unionized, therefore, everyone receives the same raise.
-The HR department is known to just go through the motions; they are definitely not partners offering advice. You have to remember that politicians and unions have the power to overthrow most decisions made by HR or Management.
-In administration you work with a lot of seasoned employees who are use to collecting a pay check while doing as little as possible (if you do not know the right people expect to pick up the slack for those that do), contractors who do not care about the institution and managers that are overwhelmed.
-Extremely disorganized; you must make connections if you want something done.
-You will always know or come across abuse of power ( Rules and regulations are rarely followed.)
-Employees are rough around the edges (If they do not like you, they do not mind cursing you out etc.)
-Expect most to want to be address by Ms. Mrs. Mr ( I'm not sure what this is all about and yes i'ts very uncomfortable.)Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
