    I have been working at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Never pressured about the financial bottom line. Overall the hospital is in great standings and spares no expense to provide quality care.

    Cons

    High stress. Compared to the area the wages are stagnate. Does not reward often for going above and beyond. Mid management is eh.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your outstanding employees better.

    I worked at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (More than a year)

    Pros

    I found nothing good about this place.

    Cons

    Management does not know what they are doing. They hire people that have no hospital experience to supervise people. Try getting help from someone who does not know their job. They evaluate you on things that are not your responsibility. As a new employee I was expected to try and figure out the job on my own according to my supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Interview you supervisors and management teams a little more before you hire them. No employee should have been treated that way I was.

    I worked at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefit package. good, but not worth dealing with the frustrating under trained, unprofessional middle management team

    Cons

    Very Poor management training for middle management in particular

    Advice to Management

    Really need a formal, structured, professional, unbiased management training program.... for all levels

    I worked at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Room to grow oneself professionally is one of my personal appreciations about my previous job. Not only was I able to achieve a bachelors of science degree, I was also given opportunity to use my growing education in diversifying the jobs I participated in and my professional skills. Community Hospital is a "for the community" organization, prioritizing customer service and satisfaction.

    Cons

    Do not have any cons. My 27 years of work at Community Hospital was all positive. I was encouraged and supported. It made my passion for service an easy process!

    Advice to Management

    Work with those that are negative, in word and action, to assist in bringing them in line with the industry standards. Assist, a little more, is maintaining a cohesive and balanced work environment for all.

    I worked at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've worked at several hospitals and this by far was the best place. I had a great Director and promoted a great work environment.

    Cons

    Depends on what department you work for but very strict on being tardy & attendance.

    I have been working at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great location. Outstanding medical staff - the hospital offers a lot of really great specialty care not available in most community hospitals. Medical leadership is great to work with - they are mostly current and former clinicians who really understand the work of the medical staff.

    Cons

    Occasionally patients have to be transferred out for specialty care not available at the hospital - but even this is a pretty streamlined process as the hospital is used to working with the big academic centers of the bay area.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue what you are doing...it's a pleasure to get to work here.
