    Pros

    The people make it a great place to work. Here you will find the finest healthcare professionals and the employees are caring and respectful to each other, from the top down. My experience at Cedars-Sinai has been a rewarding one.

    Cons

    Every organization has its cons. In smaller organizations the cons stand out so they can be quickly dealt with. Cedars-Sinai is a large community so sometimes it takes just a bit longer to address them.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain visibility and accessibility to your staff. It really goes a long way to uplifting employee morale. Use your best role models to mentor those who need it.

    Pros

    Very clear breakdown in management and very open to listening to complaints, suggestions, and compliments. Great benefits for all employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes things aren't always geared toward the interest of employees or patients. They may listen, but they aren't quick to change anything.

    the food at this place is not the best and i need to put 20 words in this thing to go to the next page so here are some more words for you.

    Advice to Management

    please improve the food served to employees and make the parking better and easier to access so i don't have to fight everyone every morning.

    Pros

    The company tries to do good things for the employees. The managers really do not.

    Cons

    I worked for Cedars for a while and found that while it's a great place to work, my particular supervisor was very mean and very, very controlling. Calling HR for assistance will get you nowhere very quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe try to assist employees who call HR for help with a situation. My supervisor was allowed to bully me and eventually I quit because of it. I called HR and HR called him, so it just made things worse. I was told by HR that I had to do whatever he told me to do. Period. Sometimes it's not the employee, it's the supervisor and you really should realize that.

    Pros

    I can't find another company that has better benefits and pay. There are a lot of resources that they make available for employees. The name looks good on your resume.

    Cons

    The commute is a nightmare and there is really no opportunity for advancement. If you are the type that is looking to get in with a good company and get your small raise every year, this is the place for you. If you think that being here will give you a chance at upward mobility you should look somewhere else. Not sure whey they don't promote from within.

    Pros

    Great environment, very good life-work balance. It all depends on the principal investigator that hires you.

    Cons

    Very low salaries and almost no change to transition to a faculty position without your own grant.

    Advice to Management

    Create a much better professorial series that allow scientist to some paid teaching.
