    I worked at Good Samaritan Hospital (Los Angeles) part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Salary and Benefits. Some flexiblity with hours. Part time was 3/5 time for me. Computer documentation. Regular I service presentation and staff meetings.

    Cons

    Disorganized organization. Very little positive feedback, they made us field nurses feel responsible for poor revenue. Often gave out excessive workload, sometimes 7 patients to be seen in a 7.5 hour shift. Excessive documentation without enough time to complete it.

    Advice to Management

    Work on improving morale, organization, minimizing and streamlining documentation. Former job. Retired from the job Feb. 2016.

    I worked at Good Samaritan Hospital (Los Angeles) (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The cafeteria offers nice grill food when the grill is working. Just ask for less oil to be sprayed on the grill!

    Cons

    Safety initiatives are not in place. There is no maternal sepsis policy, the maternal massive hemorrhage policy is not in place. It is scary and the liability is HUGE.

    Advice to Management

    It's a problem when you're not a part of a health system that measures perinatal initiatives and makes sure they are in place.

    Pros

    pay is good that is it

    Cons

    This is a very out dated backwards hospital, and in some units it is like going into a third world country where English is NOT spoken by nurses. Dirty work environment, abusive management and verbally abusive nurses . I have witness nurses throwing items at each other and refusing to care for patients. Horrifying. Union a JOKE

    Advice to Management

    Management is the issue most are shiftless.

    Pros

    High degree of autonomy and the ability to make meaningful changes. The hospital is located in a great area of town, has several public transportation options, great restaurants, exciting things to do.

    Cons

    The organization runs so lean that it is impossible to be efficient and departments are severely siloed which means a lot of time and energy goes into making connections and ensuring directions and agreements are met.

    Advice to Management

    Support valuable staff with more than just competitive salaries, be involved on the front lines, visit the units, participate in meaningful fiscal collaboration, develop a meaningful mission, vision and values statement.

    Pros

    I can't think of any

    Cons

    Horrendous upper management. The politics reminded me of high school and the President, Andrew Leeka, is a 17 year trapped in a 50-some year old's body.

    Advice to Management

    Voluntarily enroll in management development and employee-management relations classes and have all executive (non-medical) staff including all HR staff, psychologically screened.
