    I have been working at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Talented technical staff. good benefits.

    Cons

    They hired network administrators to be the leaders of an IT organization. The new CTO does not support his staff. He bad mouths employees behind their back as does his Director clone. The CIO should take note of how poorly his projects are being handled by the CTO and how little technology is understood by the directors. Buying your degree does not make you qualified to be a leader. The cloud sounded good till you have to use it. Poor choice by the CIO. Its obvious that leadership is trying to help entice people to quit with their recent attendance policy changes. That leads one to believe that layoffs are just on the horizon.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look at your EIS CTO and his network cronies. CIO shouldnt be backing people that have such poor values. Open your eyes mr CIO, he was a poor choice to lead and hes only propping up his boys as well as not telling you whats really going on. You can go meet your venture capital friends after you clean up the mess because you are gone to much.

    Pros

    Benefits, resources and great environment to learn from others in the medical field. The facility is clean with the latest medical technology.

    Cons

    None that I can think of currently. It's a huge campus so it's easy to get lost and navigate within.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication

    I have been working at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Lots of backup with HR if you need help, and once you become full time there is a union that fights for raises all the time.

    Cons

    So many employees that there are bound to be a few bad apples. Have to work every other weekend, but that is expected with hospital job.

    Advice to Management

    Advise employees faster about needing to keep continuing education updated and when/where to start work after orientation.

    I have been working at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cedars-Sinai has recrutied many smart and well know PhD and MD researchers to help increase the research program at the hospital. There are a lot of core facilities to enhance research and opportunities to collaborate with physician scientists.

    Cons

    This is first and foremost a hospital and often the research side of the hospital is given second billing and not the resources and attention that it needs. This is gradually improving but there is still a long way to go.

    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.
