    Former Employee - Nurse in Oak Park, IL

    I worked at West Suburban Medical Center part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great for a learning experience. As an RN, the variety of patients will give you a well-rounded work education. The staff support each other (because admin doesn't) and are well-educated. As a community hospital, it's easy to get to, and the inpatients are nice.

    Cons

    Nursing admin in absent in every way. Lack of support, no continuing education, no communication, poor leadership. Many of the staff members have been there forever...which can be good or bad; either they are great and helpful, or entitled and lazy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are destroying a gem with your lack of vision or leadership. Happy employees means happy patients. Stop taking advantage of everyone by asking them to provide quality care without resources.

    Former Employee - Finance Account Representative in Oak Park, IL

    I worked at West Suburban Medical Center full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent doctors, midwives, anesthesiologists, respiratory therapists, nuclear medicine technicians and x-ray technicians

    Cons

    dirty patient rooms, rude nurses, when HR targets a manager they involve the employee to the downfall of the department

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    involve your employees in the works of the department, no group can function properly if you just use your "favorites" to do the work.
