    Pros

    Operating Room staff were great people to have worked as a team with for six years. As much over-time in addition to required call hours were available at last minute asking if you could stay to finish out a case or two.

    Cons

    The Human Resources Department were not as proficient in caring for their employee benefits as was Hinsdale Hospital where I had worked some six years previously.

    Advice to Management

    Ask middle management to help in decision making for better managing outcomes for corporate growth. Especially now since the hospital has merged with Edwards Hospital.

    Pros

    Great coworkers and a beautiful new building. My manager created a great atmosphere to work in. Good benefits and decent pay.

    Cons

    The pay doesn't cover your extra job duties that will be put on you. Advancement is either if someone quits or dies but mostly they just eliminate that position and spread the wealth. No training for future growth.

    Pros

    Beautiful building, Planetree theme is good, some long term employees in staff positions have heart, fast paced environment that is changing, and the Elmhurst community and patients

    Cons

    Top down model, integrity issues of senior leaders, finance drives all decisions, lack of a visible leader that represents the collective "nursing voice" at Elmhurst. Favoritism is rampant. Stifeling culture- Guilting, and fear should not be used as a motivator. This culture is established at the top, but trickles down to the bedside. Many actions of top leaders are for "show," and are interpreted as insincere. There is absolutely no work life balance, and requests for vacations are often rejected. Highest stress level ever encountered. High patient to staff ratios for RN's and CNA's. The glamorous facade that was desiged and created is starting to show holes....

    Advice to Management

    Good people are leaving. Resurvey your nurses and listen. Do not tolerate unprideful behavior from any level. Just because someone makes money for the organization or is favored by physicians should not be a free ticket to allow bad behavior. Don't be blissfully blind.

     Glass Door: Peter Daniels is listed as CEO and is no longer an employee of Elmhurst. He is one of many that left abruptly.

    Pros

    New Building, impressive operating suites, decent cafeteria and indoor access to Center for Health. There are a few decent coworkers that make it worthwhile to come.

    Cons

    Leadership is nonexistent and favoritism of certain staff members by supervisors rampant. At least 5 staff people and both supervisors should be fired based on bullying behavior to coworkers and unprofessionalism. One supervisor hides in their office all day and does nothing, and both will abandon ship when times get tough. Lots of catty, childish behavior, including staff and supervisors playing around and goofing off within earshot of patients and playing on smartphones. Witnessed stereotyping of patients and discrimination of student because of a disability.

    Advice to Management

    It's obvious management is there for the paycheck. Try to step up and be an adult, for once. Stop playing favorites, and trying to be best friends and do your job.
