    Pros

    Great experience, good learning environment. Good place to learn the in and outs of how non profit organizations work. The over all company is ran well.

    Cons

    Got treated bad. The training wasn’t there and had to waste time doing research. They should hire more employees than milking Temp positions so they don’t have to pay benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better

    I worked at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Ability to work remotely. Good Pay and Benefits. That's about it.

    Cons

    Horrible management. Managers run around in fear most of the time. Poor decisions are everywhere. Note: this is a fear based community. There is a lack proper training for inherited applications, no career growth potential (unless ethics are checked at the door) - and lastly there is but an illusion of team support. Do not work here as this department is in peril. Truly an unhealthy environment.
    So grateful to have left this organization as it is simply the worst.

    Advice to Management

    Can't give advice to those unwilling to be a positive change.

    I worked at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, compensation , health insurance, corporation

    Cons

    Favoritism, lack of training, no stability

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better, give better training, don't show favoritism. Moving people into management with no knowledge of how to train someone that is taking the old position is unprofessional. Favoritism should not be in the workplace, this company advances employees that are not ready for their job which is unacceptable.

    Pros

    Good reputation in the community.

    Cons

    Benefits are subpar. Disorganized yet heavily bureaucratic. Travel reimbursements are laughable-cheapest hospital on EARTH. Seriously, you are better off working for a smaller hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better. Stop counting nickels & dimes and look at the big picture. Otherwise, your best employees will leave! Management has been unprofessional, indolent, ignorant and carry a hidden agenda.

    Pros

    The location is great. It's near home. The facility is nice too.

    Cons

    No breaks or lunch! No one helps out. Discharged 4 pts in Cardiac tele with 3-4 new admissions daily. Have to work every other wknd. The workload is very heavy during the day. They also require a lot of extra work that I have never done in any other hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff!

    Pros

    Telecommuting - having to be around a negative environment is minimized. Decent pay and benefits. Looks great on ones resume.

    Cons

    EIS has created an environment that has employees remaining stagnant in their existing positions. Newly revised department hierarchy ensures limited transfer and/or growth opportunities. Narrow minded executives place excessive expectations upon their managers. Managers in turn lack people skills, possess poor work and life balance, and place unrealistic expectations upon their team members as their directives have them running around with scarcity pictures. Overall EIS is an HR failure.

    Advice to Management

    Address the cons proactively and with practical goals. Refrain from just stating that you will "note" what the employees are communicating in the yearly survey results. There has been little to no action that has resulted in years.

    Pros

    Exposure to clinical trials, Exposure to excellent physicians and clinical staff

    Cons

    Lack of management, lack of leadership, lack of transparency, favoritism, lack of maturity within leadership, lack of structure, lack of growth opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Management significantly lacks with development and leadership skills. Management lacks respect for their team and treats their team very poorly. Management does not offer opportunities for growth within the department. The SOCCI department at Cedars-Sinai has experienced significant turnover throughout the past 5 years. Many former employees have expressed concerns with HR regarding poor treatment and "boss bullies."
