I have been working at John Muir Health full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good benefits, compensation is good, services local community, level II trauma center

Cons

Due to poor business decisions, JMH is currently twirling around the proverbial drain. In an attempt to stay competitive, JMH is reducing worker bee staff at an alarming and unhealthy rate. They just outsourced their lab services and terminated over 500 employees in one shot. Their IT department has been downsized significantly. The workers that remain are burnt out, expected to perform the work of 2-3 employees. They are offering (forcing for some) a voluntary resignation package in efforts to stay "competitive". This "restructure" is targeting many older staff members, who may find it difficult to find another source of income at their age.

Advice to Management

The loyal ex-employees of JMH that were forced to resign should not have been held responsible for poor business decisions by JMH. JMH should be spending less on advertising and focus more on the patient care and employee suggestions and requirements. Middle management should be reduced, since JMH is top heavy. JMH needs to better align itself with its stated "Culture of Caring" policy.

    Pros

    The fellow workers are great, and support a team oriented work environment throughout many departments. We are delivering some of the best healthcare available. The compensation is one of the highest in the Bay Area. The benefits are satisfactory.

    Cons

    Sometimes the management does not really listen to the workers and they try things on their own, often regretting and reversing the decisions.

    Pros

    Lots Of Jobs to be had, fair pay, good working conditions, leadership is dedicated, Patients are well treated. good benefits and insurance.

    Cons

    New management and new management styles seem to not really care about the way things have been done to build the reputation John Muir now has, aggressive cost cutting and budget cutting in order to free up money for new practice's and facility acquisitions will eventually affect patient care and the overall reputation.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff before problems arise, remember that it is the common staff that keeps the place operating and they are the first face the public sees.
