    Pros

    Warm welcomes throughout the hospital, employees often stopping to ask if you need help, beautiful facility, unlimited growth opportunities, PIH Health university onsite, strong employee pride and an unbelievable reputation in the community. Executives are very transparent, innovative and strive to come up with ways to help grow the organization even through the most difficult healthcare challenges ever faced. Cafeteria is amazing and so is the Starbucks like coffee shop on the main floor. They recently opened a park for employees, patients and families to enjoy. Amazing family practice doctors and specialist that squeeze you in if it's an emergency. Benefits are fantastic, great wellness program and lots of discounts. One of the top volunteer programs but not a surprise since volunteers were the foundation of this organization.

    Cons

    The only thing I can think of is more conference room space.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Hospital is always busy. Patient care/experience is first and foremost in the minds of everyone

    Cons

    don't have enough time to finish assigned work

    Advice to Management

    try to understand the work process of your employees so you can fully understand if you change something will it really work.

    Pros

    Always busy ER, you will never get bored. Some very experienced staff.

    Cons

    Management is a bit ehh. Some employees will make you want to quit. Little cliques in the department. Sometimes you won't have all the resources you need. Sometimes understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    ER really needs a transformation and fast. Stop pushing the staff to get in as many patients in a day. We need more staff period.

    Pros

    Most of the staff is pleasant, but there are clear favorites in the group.

    Cons

    Expectations from management are simply not based in reality. My group lost 30% of its staff within a 6 month window and we were not allowed to replace them. Simultaneously we kept being assigned more and more work with impossible deadlines and the expectation that everything be vetted and prefect. The organization as a whole is facing a lot of challenges and the pressure and stress is showing.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back, evaluate the capacity of your staff and stop playing favorites.

    Pros

    Have been able to gain valuable experience and knowledge through the years. Given opportunity for advancement through own initiative. Most employees treat you like family and welcome you.

    Cons

    If I hadn't taken the initiative, I would not have been given opportunities for growth.
    Some management show favoritism. Others will ignore those employees who are not performing their job duties which affects other employee's productivity.
    Cafeteria food selection needs a lot of work.

    Advice to Management

    Follow established PIH processes and procedures. You may had different ways of doing things at other organizations, but first change the process here instead of ignoring them. Be transparent to both employees and other management staff.

    Pros

    Stability. A place you can be long term. Expanding. Contrary to other reviews that report opportunities are scarce, the simple fact they continue to add wings/buildings is enough to refute that.

    Cons

    Pay is subpar with the remainder of the industry. Benefits as of 2015 are giving employees reason to hop on Glassdoor to see what else is out there. Benefits that were once fantastic have become expensive ....in 2013, it was $0 for office visits .... Today a whopping $40. Overall compensations to include pensions have become subpar. ... Yet they continue to pour millions into new buildings.

    Advice to Management

    Management fails to acknowledge that PIH's success derives from those at the bottom to mid-level management. Executives are at-will just like the rest...fail to take care of your employees by compensating them well and you'll find higher turnover and less-than satisfactory patient ratings as patient care will suffer. I'm starting to see the turnover...it's only a matter of time the hospital begins to see the negative effects. Donors and the board may need to re-visit with those steering this ship. Last thing anyone needs is another Titanic on their hands.

    Pros

    I joined PIH Health in a new full time role after having worked as a contractor for nearly four years. When the opportunity presented itself, it was an easy choice for me. I've had the pleasure of working with dozens of PIH Health employees at all levels on numerous projects through the years. There is a common theme that bonds all team members: put patients first. This vision is carried out in everything PIH Health does. I've seen first hand the improvement in the facility itself, the push to improve critical services, and the growth of the hospital itself including the acquisition of Downey Regional Medical Center and the opening of numerous new clinics. At the end of the day though, PIH Health is a great place to work because everyday is challenging and different, yet there are a lot of "A" players supporting you to help you overcome whatever obstacles may be hindering your success.

    Cons

    While there is a ton of opportunity at PIH Health, there are not always a lot of open positions. Job applicants need to be persistent. However, waiting for the right opportunity is worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue putting patients first.
