    A great hospital campus serving an underserved community. Excellent research institute.

    Postdoctoral Fellow (Current Employee)

    ProsResearch institute is outstanding. The campus has character, that is for sure. I prefer it over the marble foyers at Westwood. The people's hospital!

    ConsOld facilities, tight county funds. The research institute doesn't get the respect it deserves based on the qualities of the PIs.

    Harbor-UCLA is a much needed public hospital and excellent practice for medical/surgical residents.

    Healthcare Professional (Current Employee)

    ProsWorking with patients who struggle to survive and are appreciative of those health professionals with compassion. The work is an exercise in compassion and patience with any bureaucracy that is imperfect.

    ConsNeighborhood - sketchy for evening and night workers

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your workers and patients because this kind of input is always critical for improvement. Reinforce the critical importance of empathic listening in your staff and insure that all healthcare employees are skilled in pain assessment, treatment and modalities that can reduce pain in addition to pharmaceuticals.

    Good place to start, but not for long-term

    Cls (Current Employee) Torrance, CA

    Prosgood place to start and learn. a variety of cases and illnesses as it is a county hospital. friendly environment. many vacation days.

    harbor general

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee) Torrance, CA

    Prosthe best emergency/trauma/ high acuity pt experience for new grads. great training (6 weeks) with seasoned nurse, new and larger er ready in summer this year

    Conslow on staff/functioning equipment, high acuity pt loads, very busy er with little to no help with incoming traumas and icu pts. pts stay in er for days. pts wait out in er for days to see md. staff safety has been an issue with psych patients and angry patients. supervisors dont treat every employee equally in terms of time off/vacation/schedule changes/complaints. minimal to no raises or performance reviews. all mandator training on days, no times available for nightshift. pay is salary, most overtime approved only as accrued time that you can rarely cash out

    Advice to Senior Managementmake harbor safer for patients and less stressful for staff- maybe your hired nurses will stay

    Virtually impossible to get fired once you pass probationary period
    Paid military time off
