    The salery could be higher and the patient/ nurse ratio is still not very well balanced. Other than that I have been very happy with. This company.

    I worked at Northwestern Memorial Hospital

    Pros

    Great benefits, top pay in Chicago for healthcare. Paid according to experience and education.

    Cons

    Some employees would slack off often leaving others to do their work. Parking is expensive and far from the facility, even with the parking garages that are suppose to be a "discount".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the costs of healthcare per pay period. Hold employees that lack high performance more accountable. Get closer parking and more of a discount for employees to park.

    I worked at Northwestern Memorial Hospital

    Pros

    The mission is great and contributing to quality care is unmatched...no matter your role. At the time, the healthcare benefits were great.

    Cons

    Minimal growth opportunities and incentives for strong performance. Blanket bonuses don't support the merits of individual performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hold high performers back and understand that when they shine, you shine.

    I have been working at Northwestern Memorial Hospital

    Pros

    Laid back. Easy job. You will learn a lot about insurance, assuming you don't already.

    Cons

    No way to advance. Hard to move around Northwestern. The job is mind-numbing. You will outgrow it quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Same advice every one offers: Listen to the suggestions the people actually doing the job have to offer. The department could be much more efficient.
