    I worked at Promise Hospital of San Diego part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I was able to meet some nice people in the job market I worked in.

    Cons

    Management is filled with liars, everyone is out to get you in trouble, the building is falling apart, equipment is dated and old, a couple angry supervisors who are old-fashioned and uneducated in their field, and many lazy employees with bad nursing skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treating your staff like dog poo will in return make your staff feel really miserable, and then perform miserably for your patients.

    I worked at Promise Hospital of San Diego full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The idea of the hospital is good and their are alot of staff that really care and try so hard to do a great job.

    Cons

    Low wages for most people. Benefits are not outstanding but adequate. They don't pay good so the quality of nursing staff has been a problem. The Senior Leadership is brutal in their mgt. style. They have no problem yelling at people in front of everyone. They honestly don't think before they speak. Their is no lifestyle balance in their minds. They expect you to only live for the hospital

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your leaders actually do their jobs and don't micro-manage them.

    I worked at Promise Hospital of San Diego full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You get to see a lot of critically ill people that you wouldn't have at a regular hospital. Some really great supervisors.

    Cons

    Some pretty nasty doctors that don't call back after several calls when your pt is going downhill. Infectious diseases!!! High pt ratio and they are all really high acuity. They never seemed to have the equipment needed and god forbid you have an admission!! No real help from the charge RN. I would NEVER want to be a pt there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some more support staff and more RN's to take down the constant pressure on the nursing staff

    The worse job experience ive ever had working in mental health

    I have been working at Promise Hospital of San Diego full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only good thing i can say about promise hospital, is you get alot of interesting experience working in mental health field. If you have the experience of working here you can work at any psych facility. You literally have seen and experienced it all.

    Cons

    This is a the most horrible place to ever work. You are extremely over worked and underpaid, never get decent raises. We are unappreciated And disrespected no matter if your a hard worker or not. The overall patient care is also horrible the clients sometimes are neglected and it makes me very sick. I would never recommend this job to anyone i know, and i wish i never applied here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very unorganized and inconsistant with everything. Theres is also alot of favoritism going on at this hospital. Managment doesn't even realize that they have valuable and very caring workers here and its sad because thats very hard to find in the nursing field. Your always picked at and punished for every little thing so much that they forget about the positive.

    I worked at Promise Hospital of San Diego

    Pros

    My co-workers made my job there worthwhile

    Cons

    The management was very punitive and disrespectful. Although I received good reviews on my job performance, there definitely was an atmosphere of distrust and fear. Until the management changes, it will continue to have a high turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect. Be more professional.
