    Fast-paced to the point of sloppiness

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Skokie, IL

    ProsMany smart people working here.

    ConsVery authoritarian.
    In spite of smart people, management does whatever they please without much consultation.
    Employee engagement surveys are BS.
    If you have issues with your manager, just leave because HR will not treat you fairly.
    They shun creativity.
    You get the feeling they are on their way down.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't manage your staff as if they are prisoners.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    more concerned with buildings than people

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsClose to home, and easy to get to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote based on skill and experience, not just your favorites.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent hospital to work for

    PM&R Aide (Former Employee) Evanston, IL

    Conssome things might take a little longer due to having to follow the protocols/system put in place

    Great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexible work schedule. Allowed to work from home once a week. The culture promotes team work.

    ConsMore horizontal organization than vertical. It's hard to move up the ladder to senior management. You're more likely get promoted with a II or III in the title.

    Volunteer

    Volunteer (Former Employee) Skokie, IL

    ProsYou get a great experience of how a hospital works and the feeling of the environment. Many people start as a volunteer here and eventually start working in the same hospital.

    ConsVolunteers work should be changed to an actual job because many of the work you do is equal to that of a labor job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe volunteer work used to be a paid job. Should bring it back to being paid.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
