    Cottage Health System is a great place to work. Leadership really cares about both patients and employees. Salaries and benefits are good. Shared governance works well and it is easy to advance. Nursing is very strong here.

    Pros

    I can't say enough good things about working here. Unfortunately I relocated due to family needs. Benefits were great. Don't know if this is true now since insurance prices are so high, but when I was employed there my insurance was free and received free healthcare services within Cottage Health System.

    Cons

    I really don't have many complaints about this job itself. Santa Barbara is an expensive place to live so even with competitive wages it makes it difficult to make a permanent living here.

    I worked at Cottage Health System part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Outstanding executive leadership. I never once felt like I was being asked to work harder so the top three people could line their pockets - the leadership is doing everything in their power to create a top notch hospital for patients, doctors and employees. The benefits were outstanding.

    Cons

    As with any large employer, some departments are more functional than others. Administrative pay is a little low, although the benefits make up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Gut and revamp the marketing and PR - Cottage is the best and deserves the best.

    I have been working at Cottage Health System full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are almost second to none, the employee appreciation/recognition is awesome, and all the nurses are really good at what they do.

    Cons

    some of the older ladies in administration at goleta can act spitefully. that hospital ICU is slow and has very low acuity.

    Advice to Management

    Close the GVCH ICU or expand the capabilities of the hospital. working in that unit is like working in purgatory, you have a job but get canceled all the time.
