    I have been working at Cedar Sinai Park full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I feel very valued and appreciated. I am able to offer input and feel heard. I really enjoy my co-workers and supervisor. Feels like family not just an employer. Flexibility in scheduling.

    Cons

    Some recent turnover makes it more challenging until those positions are filled. Not as much cross training as would be ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Additional cross training for all key positions in the event of turnover or absence.

    I worked at Cedar Sinai Park full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful, kind patients and many warm and wonderful employees work as medical staff and in social services.

    Cons

    Executives tell us explicitly that their only priority is saving money, at the expense of the welfare of patients and employees. Administration knowingly misinforms family members about our staff to patient ratios. Patients are unsafe due to our constricted budget. Patients requiring one-on-one care don’t receive it because the facility admits that every penny counts and it’s more important not to risk losing money than it is not to risk losing a patient’s life. $$ before people should be their motto!

    Advice to Management

    Try to care even slightly about the patients and staff members and how your extreme budgetary crisis effects them and the reputation and legacy of this institution.

    I worked at Cedar Sinai Park full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working with my residents. Health benefits were good.

    Cons

    The person in charge of me had no nursing certifications, and was completely unsympathetic to how hard our job was. Work environment is very gossipy and toxic. Cuts to staff make it very difficult to provide the model of care promised to families.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified managers with nursing experience.

    I have been working at Cedar Sinai Park full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great staffing! The Best I have ever seen for nursing home.
    Huge changes in the last year that have made all the difference in my work.
    I live close by.
    The management is low key and easy to approach. They just want us to give the best care possible.
    Cool building. Brand new.

    Cons

    Going though the changes and opening the green houses and post acute unit all in the last year has been really hard. There have been some screw ups but mostly its all of us working together to fix things that don't work. I have worked at CSP for two years and my first year was terrible. The management didn't have a clue about how to run a nursing home and the people they put into manager jobs were mean to staff. It was so hard to see many good staff leave.

    Advice to Management

    I almost left about a year ago and am really happy that I didn't. The changes that the new management have made are really good. I cant imagine going to work at another place. Kepp up the good work.

    Pros

    The company provides wonderful growth opportunities and allows for you to reach your full potential. The company and community provided really backs the missions and ensures.

    Cons

    Some items take longer than they need, in order to be completed.

    Advice to Management

    Fire employees who warrant being fired, don't make new positions for them.

    I worked at Cedar Sinai Park full-time

    Pros

    Largely, the staff and residents are wonderful. The staff members are some of the most dedicated, hard-working folks I have worked with. Many staff members care deeply about the residents and the organization, even though they are completely unsupported by senior management.

    Cons

    The senior management team is the issue. The CEO is often short tempered and agitated and holds an obvious measure of distain and mistrust for the staff and management. He seems to struggle with the most basic principles of leadership and business culture, which in turn, drives one of the most intense ‘fear cultures’ I have ever seen in an organization. Bullying is rampant in this organization.
    The Administrators are equally as bad, often speaking badly and gossiping about staff, residents and families behind their backs. They actively cover up violations and mistakes and seem to be more focused on getting bigger paychecks and nicer offices than they are the care of residents. I have never worked with a more unscrupulous, miserable and incompetent group of managers in my life.

    Advice to Management

    Not going to offer advice. They won’t listen.

    I worked at Cedar Sinai Park full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers and residents are nice

    Cons

    Management staff will never listen to you or make changes. The people guilt of this most are the CEO and the two administrators. They all walk with their heads up in the clouds and don't want to see the problems. No one cares about how the residents or patients are treated and no one does anything about their concerns either. If management can't even listen to the customers you can keep dreaming that they listen to their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring.

    I worked at Cedar Sinai Park full-time

    Pros

    The residents. Beautiful people who deserve better.

    Cons

    The leaders. They are self serving and love to put people down, even those they work for. I've never been around such a disgraceful group of people.

    Advice to Management

    None, they don't care anyway. I saw some very inappropriate behavior and they cover up for each other. The CEO is a very angry person, they seem to feed off him.
