    Great place to volunteer!

    Junior Auxiliary (Former Employee)
    Mountain View, CA

    ProsSupportive environment. Supervisors very accommodating. Everything is very systematic. Patients and employees genuinely enjoy contributions made by volunteers. Scholarships offered for certain majors. Recognition and rewards at annual/bi-annual assemblies. Perks include: discounts at the nearby See's Candies and one free cup of coffee from coffee cart!

    ConsVery few leadership opportunities. Sometimes it's hard to find someone to take over your shift(s).

    Advice to Senior ManagementAn online forum that would allow volunteers to coordinate shift availability with ease would be nice to have.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great nurses to work with and great support personnel.

    Clinical Nurse II (Current Employee)
    Mountain View, CA

    ProsClean professional environment, innovative, great support staff, management and doctors work collaboratively with nurses, flexible schedule, great benefits, great amenities for patients.

    ConsVery focused on staying within budget. Getting sent home early or getting cancelled for 4 hours and then having to come in at odd hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe patients we see on the medical floor often cannot do a single thing for themselves, yet demands are so high for the nursing and support staff. Confused, combative psych patients, dressing changes that take an hour, multiple tests that need to be done off the floor and needing at least 2 nurses to get obese patients into and out of a gurney, admissions you don't have time for, family members with a lot of questions not answered by the doctors, needing to be fed, turned, bathed, pulled up, frequent diaper changes. I believe the medical floor works the hardest and yet has the highest nurse to patient ratio. It is time to take action and drop the ratio to 4 to 1. This is what is needed for patient safety, it cannot wait for the next law to be passed. Please budget this in. Medical nurses drop like flies due to stress, burnout, and injuries.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
