    Advice to Management

    There needs to be an overhaul in how supervisors and managers are trained. In the last year I have seen 8 doctors leave.... that should tell you something. There is a real divide between clinical and administrative staff. They do not care about their employees, last year 300 were let go, yet they retained their high salaried directors, whose only job responsibilities seem to be having meetings....

    I worked at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    The healthcare benefits and hours

    Cons

    Too, too, too much favoritism. If you brown nose and become part of Faye’s favorites then you’re good. If you’re not then be prepared to work while the favorites slack off. Overtime and special projects are only given to favorites. No career advancement, not unless you transfer to another department. The PFS 2 position, what should been a senior position, are very hard to come by. PFS certificate can be obtained, bonus given upon completion definitely a plus, but other then the bonus, certificate is useless. Because if you’re not a favorite, or family or friend of management you won’t advance. I’m not a disgruntled employee I’m just being honest.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the favoritism and learn to be real managers! Pick employees for special projects, work ques and hire people based on their knowledge and ability to perform the job. And, not because they are family or friends or because they’re one of the favorites. Remember attitude reflects leadership.
