    Very good learning experience - notsogood for growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDoing something I knew was valuable and useful for our physicians and the patients they care for.

    ConsSorry to say it, but working within the confines of union rules can create an environment within departments where people are encouraged to do the bare minimum, good workers who REALLY care and go above and beyond requirements are let go, while others (simply because they've been there longer) are allowed to stay in their positions - in some instances, good workers are blatantly ostracized or retaliated against simply for suggesting process improvements.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe are in a very unique position with all of the new technology being implemented - my advice to management is to listen to employees ON THE FRONT LINES who are forward thinkers and want to contribute more. Some of us have "above and beyond" in our blood and we're being stifled by poor management and outdated policies. It's a shame that we're so good in so many areas and so terrible in other areas - it doesn't have to be that way! We can be leaders, if you have the right people on your team.

    A good place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Salinas, CA

    ProsThe hospital has Great Pay, one of the best benefits package (health and retirement) , generous time off the longer you work there, ease of travel to location

    ConsHaving to deal with union issues, politics between department heads/directors and senior management, some of who you know gets or keeps your job (though this has decreased), off site parking while the construction continues
