    I have been working at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The size of the hospital and complexity of the patients are great for clinicians. It's a wonderful place to improve knowledge, skills and better your practice.

    Cons

    Management isn't the best. There is increasingly less regard for experienced clinicians and a greater focus on cost reduction. People are "encouraged" to retire early and are replaced with entry level clinicians.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to provide excellent care for patients, value your staff.

    Pros

    The company values it's employees and makes it a point to give everyone a bonus each year. Good benefits and working environment.

    Cons

    Hard to get in or move up within. HR needs help. Like most companies, every year cuts cost and forced to do a little more with less.

    Advice to Management

    Improve on HR/Recruitment. Consider current and former good employees first for jobs. I had to leave to advance my career because could not advance more within and now have a hard time being considered again , even though I was an excellent employee with great employee evals.
