    I worked at Riverside Regional Medical Center

    Pros

    Staff are team players. Some nice improvements with the dietary/cafeteria departments. Housekeeping is outstanding. Overall, most departments have good management. Avoid the women's areas at this facility.

    Cons

    HR is not looking out for your interests. Management in the women's area are incompetent to be leaders. You will work your tail off and in the end- none of it will be appreciated or recognized and your license is worth more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a mentor. Take an English class so you know how to speak and write proper English. Take a math class too so you know how to adequately staff a unit. Get out there and learn the unit.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Good principles steady work competent staff.

    Cons

    Pay could be better, but unsure of the other medical groups in the area salary ranges. Private sector pay is better but that is to be expected.

    Pros

    Many years of great experience.

    Cons

    Back stabbers and lazy employees disinterested in patient care- just a paycheck. To each his own within each department... where is the teamwork??? What is accountability?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change... for the better of the team and ultimately the patients... not just for one person, especially not just yourself.
