    Pros

    Great colleagues and good training opportunities.

    Cons

    Staffing lacks so employees are overworked. Management will take advantage of your skills and have you work outside of your job role/scope without compensation.

    I worked at El Camino Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The nurses, physicians, technicians, and chaplain are the very best. They put patients first and show enormous compassion to patients and their families. The service lines - cancer, heart and vascular, behavioral health, rehab, orthopedics, men's health, stroke and neuroscience, women's health, and clinical research distinguish El Camino Hospital as an outstanding medical center for over 50 years.

    Cons

    Using a PTO benefits approach means not getting the most basic national holidays "off" without using vacation time. Ridiculous. The pension vesting is also not to the advantage of the employee. You are not provided a company cell, iPad, or attendance to industry conferences.

    Advice to Management

    Empower staff to grow and build new bridges with the community at large

    Promote from within. Strengthen career development for employees

    I have been working at El Camino Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pretty hospital, new facility in a nice setting

    Cons

    unionized labor and no-one is running the overall health care

    Advice to Management

    Please walk through all units of your hospital once a week and watch what the employees are doing (flirting and gossiping first then managing their own personal needs second then some of them will answer a call or do a little work - the "good ones" put customer services/patient care at priority number 3 or 4 . Is that acceptable to you and would YOU take your loved one to such a place?
    Better yet, hire a mystery shopper so that you will not need to get your own hands tainted AND you can pay more and then you can maintain your denial and dismiss the reports because, obviously the consultants must be incompetent or confused.
    Then you can also let the patients and family who can identify the doctors complain about their experiences and blame the doctors, because the doctor told me to go to that hospital ! If not for the doctor's recommendation, I would certainly NOT have had that bad experience ...

    I worked at El Camino Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working environment is healthy because most of El Camino staff are welcoming and friendly! On our first week of work, we had a meet and greet with the Big Names of the company. Food was also served!

    Salary was competitive and benefits was great!

    Cons

    I have nothing to say! Most of my time in El Camino were a positive experience for me! If not for my family, I would have stayed with the company until I retired!

    I worked at El Camino Hospital (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefit, the health insurance covers all family without out of pocket cost. Copay is $25 for a regular visit and $35 for a specialty.

    Cons

    Work culture is not good. Too much politics game drag the real work down. Management is not fair and superficial. Not understand real operation need. High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep talents and respect them.
