1. High cost of meals in the cafeteria. 2. So many employees, it is sometimes hard to get to know other people on different units

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital

    Pros

    It's a small hospital that has a lot of opportunities. Santa Barbara is one of the nicest places to live in California and the hospital has a great location in the midst of it all. Although the hospital is fairly small for the city, it is in the middle of making a large and expensive expansion. The neighborhood around the hospital is speckled with many specialists and physicians offices that continue to grow and expand, making SBCH a great learning hospital. It gives this little 6 story hospital a small town feeling, without the small town and with the perks of a larger hospital.

    Cons

    Because Santa Barbara doesn't have other hospitals to compete with, its pay isn't equal to the cost of living in Santa Barbara. It also lacks unions, so pay is just mediocre for the area. It could be a great travel assignment though.
