    Not a bad place to work...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGreat environment; very family oriented, they don't ask a lot out of you, even though the benefits suck it's a pretty low stress environment

    ConsPeople tend to get holed up and try to get job security, often rude and discourteous staff, incompetent administrative people (all areas), the hospital seems to just be throwing money away, please keep a lot of the office areas clean (environmental staff doesn't seem to like to clean)

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the unions, better benefits package, better salary/compensation

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Worst possible hospital work environment

    A Position of Some Authority (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsThere are pockets of good, sincere people working here committed to serving an underserved patient population.

    ConsThe organization claims transparency, but is broadly dishonest to all employees. Pay is woefully under market, work conditions are abysmal, the physical plant is old and falling apart, professional standards are so far out of reach as to be laughable. According to Crain's Chicago Business, Alan Channing recently received a 1.5 MILLION dollar retention bonus while the administration cries "We are a Poor Hospital" at every meeting and so they cannot (fill in the blank - give raises, improve benefits, provide patients with working televisions, rid the hospital of rodents...). Nurses lack basic supplies and equipment to keep patients safe, pest are bold and rampant, managers are arrognat, distant and lack basic leadership skills. The data system in hopelessly out of date and no financial, budget, patient or staffing data is accurate or reliable, Senior Leadership walks the halls in designer clothes, knows the first names of most employees and pats their backs - and then lays off them off in the next breath. Consultants are in and out the door making unrealistic suggestions that are ultimately ignored anyway, but as long as the consultants get the money - who cares. That is, if they ever actually pay the consultants. All staff know to cash their checks IMMEDIATELY, because it is never really certain that the money for the employees will actually be there on payday. And don't even get me started on the laughable benefits - except for the senior management of course!

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean House. Start at the top and sweep away the high priced consultants and ineffectual leadership team. The smiling administrative faces are not fooling anyone and its easy to see the hospital circling the drain. Put your resources towards the people that you serve, including your staff.

    Advice to current employees: GET OUT AS SOON AS YOU CAN!

    You have believe in it, to want to be here, and even then sometimes you'll wonder what you're thinking.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsFighting the good fight, delivering health care to those in need who otherwise may receive medical attention.

    ConsThe inadequacies of the antiquated and quite often dilapidated physical structure coupled with the the equally inadequate technological and informational infrastructure make an already difficult job even harder.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromising brilliant future improvements that never seem to move any closer to reality is no salve to the common, frustrating and ever-so-real problems that face your employees day after day.

    SHS...good and bad.

    Program Manager (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsDecent pay, cafeteria food is good and adequately priced.

    ConsManagement says they want to provide quality health services to the community, but that mission never quite comes across. Staff members are disrespectful and rude to patients and never corrected. Good public health based programs are allowed to fall by the wayside. Found that management had no idea what I did in my position. Many of the processes within the system were antiquated and slow to change. The benefits...although at first glance the benefits seem comprehensive, the health insurance was woefully inadequate. Both PPO options only allowed you to go to Sinai/Access or a few other hospitals for full coverage...the coinsurance and deductible were extremely high, and I actually went into a lot of debt due to medical bills working at the hospital. Go figure!

    Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out how to improve the quality and customer service aspects to bring in patients with varied lines of service needs and substantive payor mix.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
