Cottage Health System Reviews
Pros – Outstanding executive leadership. I never once felt like I was being asked to work harder so the top three people could line their pockets - the leadership is doing everything in their power to create a top notch hospital for patients, doctors and employees. The benefits were outstanding.
Cons – As with any large employer, some departments are more functional than others. Administrative pay is a little low, although the benefits make up for it.
Advice to Senior Management – Gut and revamp the marketing and PR - Cottage is the best and deserves the best.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Great shared governance model.
State of the art OR Suites & equipment.
Beautiful weather in Santa Barbara.
Cons – Housing in the area is expensive.
Pros – Great Benefits, Wonderful people to work with, Staff members depending on the department really look out and care for each other.
Cons – Management only cares about numbers and not how hard employees are actually working. Employees are overworked and very unappreciated. Very hard to be fired from especially management because directors just ignore the problems and make up initiative plans to help the manager without actually looking at the root cause.
Advice to Senior Management – Respect and show interest in your employees. Don't just ignore
Pros – Nice place to live, Benefits are good.
Cons – Mangement lack education and training to properly manage their employees. There is no positive feedback and yearly reviews are joke. Your manager does not meet with to give positive feedback and opportunity for growth, and to share negative feedback to make changes the enitre year.
Advice to Senior Management – Hire MSN nurse management with experience in managing people. Review yearly review written by your managers, and coach how write and provide at least quarterly meeting. Share positive and negative feedback and provide oppportunity to correct behavior before commenting in a annual review. Clean house on managers that dont have proper training and has conduct issues with staff, doctors, and students.
