    I worked at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with Residents was great. Also, the population served is great to work with, especially if you like teaching.

    Cons

    Charge RN tended to dump on newer staff and on travelers. ALWAYS gave ALL heavy loads to these nurses, while on an otherwise not busy shift, 5 or 6 RNs sat around the nurses' station laughing and talking and having a good time. They would not offer to help. When the unit is not busy and nurses are sitting around, they should be helping the nurses who are busy, at least when the caseload for that nurse is over the top.
    **Wages were cut without any notice, whatsoever. We never found out until payday when our checks were much shorter. I was told the hospital did not need to tell anyone when they cut wages. However, about 4 months later, we got a "raise." They announced it like they wanted a pat on the back for being so kind as to give us raises. The raise; however, was bringing us back to where our wages were before they were stolen from us.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of what is really going on in the unit. Be the manager of all, not the friend of some.

    I have been working at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    In my opinion, CCRMC is one of the best teaching hospitals around. The staff is personable and exceptionally helpful. The setting is ideal for melding forensic psychology, counseling psychology under acute circumstances. It is also a great place to gain medical knowledge on the job.

    Cons

    The county system lacks some organization. Often staffing is short which sometimes makes patient care difficult. In addition, many staff members play multiple roles because of the shortage of professionals. There are many temps and unfortunately, it takes a long time to get hired.

    I have been working at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of interesting projects, hybrid positions that allow you to gain experience in inpatient, clinical, care transitions, and ambulatory settings so it doesn't get boring.

    Cons

    Pharmacists at County are woefully underpaid compared to everywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Nowhere to move up, no recognition of good work. Everyone is classified as Pharmacist I with no chance of getting promoted or getting a raise.

    Pros

    main location: Parking is plentiful. Location is accessible. On bus route. Curves, yogurt shop, Grocery, drug store, bank, fast foods,restaurants (mexican, american, italian, sandwich, diner, chinese) are nearby. Some restaurants are open early and late. Starbucks is across the street. Staff are very friendly. There is a sidewalk for walks during breaks. After hours, staff can go to the movie theater next door.

    Cons

    Top management exhibits favoritism. Too much pork! Too many contractors and consultants. Poor communication with staff. All hands meetings are one way communication. Not useful. Topmanager seems to be not accountable as he lets his non- manager direct reports run the whole place!

    Advice to Management

    Be fair. Treat employees respectfully instead of putting consultants or contractors or favored staff ahead always. Talk with staff. Walk the talk. support staff!
