    Has gone downhill since new management has taken over.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Arlington Heights, IL

    ProsVery close group of employees that look out for each other.
    Benefits are decent.
    Education reimbursement is a nice plus, assuming they still offer it.
    Competitive pay.

    ConsIt seems every week they bring in a new manager or vice president to make more foolish decisions that never seems to benefit the employees.
    Many departments are being outsourced thanks to the new management.
    Due to hiring freezes and layoffs, EVERY department is suffering with being short staffed which is causing a direct effect on employee morale.
    Employee morale had plummeted greatly over the past few years due to terrible new upper management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI realize your job is to turn a profit and you probably don't see first hand how terrible your decisions are impacting hospital employees. But just know that ever since you have taken over this hospital, and brought all your "friends" with you, you have done a great job of RUINING this hospitals reputation in the community and have been the ONLY factor is your employees diminishing morale and confidence in your management abilities. Stop hiring more unnecessary MANAGERS and VP's and start hiring more STAFF.

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

    RN for over 15 years - things have changed!

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
    Arlington Heights, IL

    ProsHistorically had been a very good hospital. Great doctors,nurses and other staff. Felt like "family" , supportive co-workers and team approach to care.

    ConsBig change in leadership and management in last 12-18 months. Very low visibility to staff,too many decisions made without getting input from staff. Performance reviews based on attendance rather than performance. Very few pay raises in lat few years and those raises have been very low. Many directors of units incompetent. Seems to be a trend of letting long term, 10 years plus, employees go.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees. Ind out what has worked in the past and value your employees!

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

    Better than most hospitals in my opinion

    Medical Technologist (Current Employee)
    Arlington Heights, IL

    ProsI've worked here for 27 years; In today's economy everyone is sensitive to staffing shortages, pay freezes and cuts in benefits. We aren't immune to these but on the whole we are keeping pace or somewhat above other hospitals and businesses in trying to keep these cuts minimal. Most of the time I feel management is fairly transparent about information that is funneled down to the "worker bees". Unfortunately there's no perfect employer right now. NWCH has kept pace with salaries and benefits for comparable job titles which is a plus. Flexibility and care for it's employees has always helped me in tough times.

    ConsThere's alot of negativity in general in health care and NWCH is no different. Many of the complaints revolve around problems and issues where staff wasn't consulted before changes have been made. Case in point - a remodel was done recently in my department and some designs were poorly planned because middle management didn't discuss the layout with the people that actually do the work! Not only a waste of money but this causes decreased morale and inefficiency.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone; just keep the spreadsheet in the black...and get rid of lazy employees.
