Great Environment

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Sequoia Hospital

ProsThis hospital has a very family-like environment because most people have worked here for so long that they've known each other for years.

ConsOne downside right now is the construction, which has caused the cafeteria to temporarily shut down, but this will all improve when the hospital has been renovated.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop ignoring the people who aren't doing their jobs well and take action to either help them improve or find another job.
