    I worked at Edward Hospital part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good quality care for a community hospital with very nice facilities. Location is great for the Chicago suburbs.

    Cons

    The hospital did not provide enough hours for those working as a registry nurse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have any advice at this point. The management team that I worked with t the time seemed knowledgeable and professional.

    It is a great place to work

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Edward Hospital part-time

    Pros

    Staff members have good relationships. There is respect among all staff. And the company values are good overall. Coworkers are and were great and management is doing its best. Management treats staff with respect.

    Cons

    The patients can be challenging and there aren't always enough workers to go around. As a BHA, we are often moved around between units with no warning, not knowing where we will work until we arrive. Scheduling is always an obstacle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managing the scheduling better will help the atmosphere be slightly less chaotic during shift change

    I worked at Edward Hospital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Once your in, HR fights for you. With that said, it takes a lot for people to get fired. Magnet status, and it shows with the nursing staff.

    Cons

    Upper management likes to micro-manage. Pay is less than other area hospitals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rely more on your staff, and let them do their jobs. There are some really great people working there.
