A great place for workers. Not an ideal situation for career building

I have been working at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great security, good benefits, excellent medical benefits, good wages

Cons

Lacks team environment, very hierarchical, little professional development, lacks solid strategic planning at the departmental level. Lock of group identity

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give up the old paradigm of top down direction, build people in the organization, focus on cross-functional incentives, do not incentevise one group for cost, one for revenue and another for volume

    I have been working at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Our Nurses provide the best care they can in spite of the all the demands put on them. Because we are made to think we are better than everyone else and we provide better care, we are justified in charging rates that are so much higher than everyone else.

    Cons

    There is a lot of favoritism...certain doctors and departments get whatever they want at the expense of others areas that should be getting more resources. Also managers are unfair in their treatment of their staff and give certain ones preferential treatment, schedules and assignments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be as concerned about your employees and the way you treat them as you are as the results of the patient satisfaction scores. If employees feel they are truly valued, they will work even harder and patients will see and feel the results.

    Former Employee - Staff Research Associate in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A few friendly people, decent cafeteria
    Some good perks, like for not using their parking
    Some great science is happening here

    Cons

    They don't plan far enough in advance to accomodate their new positions
    Some of the benefits are not good - vacation and sick time are lumped together into one category
    There is a lot of snobbery and backstabbing going on in some departments, like a lab supervisor trying to take over a whole department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce thinking ahead so that positions are not fulfilled before the laboratory is actually ready for it.
