    Pros

    Working at Long Beach Memorial provides an employee with a flexible work environment. Time off is easily approved and consideration is made for most needs concerning leave. The organization recognizes employees for long term service and loyalty and seems to genuinely wish to thank and retain us. Our Clinics and Centers are deservedly nationally recognized. The commitment to the local citizenry is exemplary.

    Cons

    The facility is running out of space, some work sites are located in windowless bull pens in the basement, with poor lighting, even somewhat disturbing locations (near the morgue) where concern for one's health is warranted. Various parts of the Hospital are constantly under differing levels of construction impeding traffic flow and parking availability. The organization is implementing a new payroll system requiring employees to swipe their badges before and after work and for breaks. This timekeeping program is making many feel as if they work in a nursery.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more interest in the support departments. There are many hardworking employees doing grunt work who are putting their all into it every day who are overlooked. The physician society is celebrated excessively when LBMMC is really the only game in town for them to bring their patients. They would come anyway. Use some of that fat for the little guys.
