    Pros

    Work with great physicians! The cafeteria serves great food. Critical care physician, hospitalists, and trauma surgeon in house 24 hours a day.

    Cons

    Unsafe working conditions, always understaffed, no support from hospital management, high turnover, high infection rates, below average compensation, and ridiculously busy!

    Advice to Management

    I constantly hear complaints from former patients regarding their care at OLOL. Current and former employees reiterate the above mentioned "cons" associated with employment at OLOL. I would not recommend obtaining employment with this organization.

    Pros

    High volume facility with excellent medical staff. Great facility for care of the indigent patient (not for the insured or paying patient) because many physicians, especially the emergency medicine group, over-order diagnostic tests.

    Cons

    Just a few cons include, but is not limited to: Poor pay; Horrible management; Filthy work environment; High turnaround rate; and the fact that the nurses are treated like prisoners of war.

    Advice to Management

    Unable to share info with upper management because they do not listen to frontline medical and nursing staff. Advise to the board: Besides cleaning the hospital, you may want to clean house (i.e., upper management).

    Pros

    Never any boredom. Great place for someone who is self-taught and likes to learn new things.

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance in the Clinical IS department. Very high turnover rate which in turn leaves very few knowledgeable people . Poor mentality of training employees. They fear if they train people they will leave to consult. However, that is far from the truth if the working environment were better. No room for advancement, especially if you are good at your job.

    Advice to Management

    Review your middle management and determine why turnover rates are so high. You are losing very qualified experienced people due to working environment. Invest in your employees they will invest in you.

    Pros

    I had friendly enough co-workers, and I was allowed to dive into projects that interns may not normally be engaged in.

    Cons

    I arrived as a tyrannical leader was leaving, so my entire department was on egg shells. Also, the Corporate Audit department has a very adversarial relationship with the rest of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so stiff and handing down orders. Take a collaborative approach to leading your teams. I made almost twice as much per hour interning with other companies.
