I worked at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center full-time (less than an year)

Pros

For students/interns, SCVMC is a great teaching hospital

Cons

For full time employees, at least in rehab, therapist get paid about 20% less than local equivalent hospitals.
Due to limited funds, resources are more limited (new therapy supplies, over time pay, etc)

    I have been working at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, although they're dwindling for new comers. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Culture is out of date with the current times. Management still believes staff should punching a clock and watching every minute, yet they also expect you to be on call and be available for any emergencies, late night system upgrades, etc. Double standard.

    Management cannot be challenged or questioned, even if they are doing something wrong. If so, you will be blacklisted and marginalized. I've seen it done to numerous staff.

    Those who are incompetent tend to be the ones who get promoted...they reward poor performers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better with staff. Create better opportunities for growth.

    I worked at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center

    Pros

    Depending on the unit, there is a lot of good team work and support amongst the Nurses. Did not run into the common problem of competitiveness and "clicks" seen in other bigger Medical Centers. Most patients are very grateful and appreciative. A lot of very dedicated employees who have been there a very long time.

    Cons

    Upper management has gone through big changes in the past 2 years or so. Could not keep up with "who was who". Several units have interim mangers and/or brand new managers with little to no management experience. Being a County hospital, there have been many money woes, especially since the economy tanked. NO raises for Nurses in 6 years, but a teeny-tiny one was just negotiated with the new contract which still barely brings them up to the bottom range of other hospitals in the area.
