    Former Employee - Temporary Office Support - Education Department in Northridge, CA

    I worked at Northridge Hospital Medical Center as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Always there for me, very attentive to my needs, someone there to hold my hand when I wasn't feeling well.

    Cons

    Nothing to complain about. I realky enjoyed working there, as a temp permanent staff treated me like one of their own, wish I could find permanent employment there in the education department with Jan Welsh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to give a deep consideration to even temp employees who apply for a position there. I have wanted to stay there as an employee permanently since starting there in 2009 and being let go in 2010. Was so quick not even a reason why we were all let go. I thoroughly enjoyed everyone there.

  2.  

    Started out as a good experience only to slowly decline into a downwards spiral.

    Current Employee - Food Services in Northridge, CA

    I have been working at Northridge Hospital Medical Center (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Seeing certain fellow employees and customers/visitors/patients, at times, makes up for the negative attributes.
    Set pay that is higher than minimum wage and protected by union.

    Cons

    No benefits for Per Diem positions.
    Per Diem employees still pay for union fees despite not having benefits.
    Management is run in a "blind leading the blind" style with there being no set structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to lower employees about making changes before just coming in and making changes assuming that it will work out. Perhaps take a walk in our shoes for a day or two to see how "effective" changes are before assuming it they should work.

  3.  

    Unsafe, with lots of staff in-fighting. Bullying. Unprofessional.

    Former Employee - Social Worker in Northridge, CA

    I worked at Northridge Hospital Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I got a pay check on a regular basis. Oh yes, they do have a nice chapel.

    Cons

    Detached management. Just felt so impersonal, and often unable to adequately address patient concerns.

    I worked at Northridge Hospital Medical Center full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Multi-disciplinary approach to dietetics practice.

    Cons

    Volatile employees, including upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the regular occurrence of heightened turn-over, as hospital organizations today face this trend, have some degree of patience with staff and practice retention efforts of valuable employees.

    I worked at Northridge Hospital Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits. Some of the staff are super sweet and caring.

    Cons

    Extremely unfair managers that run together in a click. If you are not in their circle, you don't stand a chance. If you are, you can curse, lie, cheat and steal and they will cover for you. Very sad. It is almost like they encourage each other to behave this way. Seriously, it is horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only words to management here are what comes around always goes around.

    Pros

    friendly and clean place to work

    Cons

    Not quick in responding to applicants

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to consider people who are qualified to jobs not just people who look good in tight revealing clothing. Give other hard working people a chance to work

    I have been working at Northridge Hospital Medical Center

    Pros

    Variety of patient diagnosis and level of patient care (i.e. Trauma Center, ICU, CVU, Oncology, General Medical/Surgical, etc.)

    Cons

    Working a couple holidays per year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More opportunities for social interaction between the different disciplines may help with building camaraderie interdepartmentally. Also, I would like the hospital to create more opportunities with the community such as health awareness fairs and/or career days in order to educate the public about the multiple aspects of health professionals.
