    Pros

    Stable organization, growing, ease of access

    Cons

    People given positions they are not prepared for, too many unlicensed clinical staff

    Advice to Management

    Choose leaders with experience/degrees. Do not give leadership positions to barely educated and unlicensed associates, just to save money.

    Pros

    Busy emergency room . Like my coworkers very much. Rewarding job in general. Advocate has semi-decent benefits and fair wages.

    Cons

    I'm tired of the Chicago Metropolitan area in general. The high property taxes and other taxes. The government from top to bottom , ugh.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. But , consider offering separate sick days aside from PTO. It's just sad that someone that has been sick or injured might not get a vacation.

    I worked at Advocate Health Care full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great team of nurses on the unit. Management (on a particular unit) was flexible with schedules when they could be.

    Cons

    Mandatory weekend shifts did not allow management to staff weekends or weekday shifts as they needed. Staffing was usually problematic and at times became very unsafe (nurse to patient ratio).

    Advice to Management

    Change the mandatory weekend shifts, give more acknowledgment to floor nurses that pick up shifts when unit is short on staff.
