    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.

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

    Pros

    Amazing, hardworking therapeutic team. Most people openly complain about lack of help, pay and resources.

    Cons

    Some members of management are antiquated in thought; one sided problem solving. Clinical staff not compensated appropriately. High turn over rate in clinical setting. Difficult environment to impart change. If you care about helping people it may be difficult; saving money is the hospitals main goal.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to clinical nursing/ therapeutic (MD, PhD, Social Work, MFT, PhD, MD) staff. Clinical interns are placed in unethical and illegal violations on a regular basis not gaining adequate supervision, violating safety of staff and patients.

    I have been working at El Camino Hospital part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nursing staff by far make this place worth it. I'm at the LosGatos location, and much prefer the smaller community hospital feeling.

    Cons

    The administration insists on making the two locations identical. Trying to make the smaller hospital function like the larger one, but without the ancillary staff.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the nurses and what we do for your "enterprise". Truly function like a Magnet hospital.

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

    Pros

    ECH provides health care including dental and vision. An additional perk I love is that employees get up to 20% off purchases in the various gift shops on campus!

    Cons

    The clocking system for hourly employees is designed for nurses not admin staff so it's a bit frustrating to use as an admin. Additionally earned PTO must be used for vacation, holidays and being sick--no days off for holidays are automatically given throughout the year.
