I worked at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center

Pros

- good amounts of vacation time given
- better pay than other hospitals in the area
- certain departments are cutting edge and excellent to work for
- employee enrichment programs are awesome

Cons

- every position is overloaded with responsibilities. One person is easily doing the work of 2-3 people
- because of the previous con, you are underpaid for the work you are doing
- people tend to burnout very quickly
- management tends to be just as over burdened as employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop loading FTEs on existing employees. Just because an MA leaves, doesn't mean another employee should pick up the slack. Please continue to hire and minimize burnout. The toyota model cannot always be applied to an industry where humans (not robots) do the actual work.

    I worked at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center

    Pros

    Competitive salary/benefits, go-live bonuses, some very nice and extremely hard-working and bright people, public perception of med center is very high

    Cons

    Lack of professional developement, lack of career advancement, human capital is not valued--interesting jobs go to consultants instead of FTEs, people are recognized based on politics and friendships rather than merit, unfair practices (such as reverse discrimination) are ignored, some managers/leaders are not a good fit for their positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are your biggest asset--promote from within, develop your people. Turnover is very expensive, so do not be short-sighted by focusing only on the immediate project or bottom line and--in the meantime--losing good people. People do not usually leave EIS for more money--they leave for more opportunities and a more supportive, kinder culture. Consider 360 degree evaluations, and really heed the results of employee satisfaction surveys. Make telecommuting an option for part of the workweek--this is an industry standard in IT. People leave because they do not have this option.
