    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Stable job; steady hours with some overtime. There is a union.
    - 4-10 hours shifts. Weekends off with 1 day in the middle of the week off.
    - 1 hour lunch breaks.
    - Offer classes for continuous nursing education.
    - Everyone pulls their weight.
    - Many clinics. Lots of experience gained here.
    - Float/cross train in many different clinics.
    - People want to come work for the county because "benefits are paid for" (you just pay a co-pay)
    - 401k with matching and pension.
    - This is a teaching hospital. A lot of people pass through getting experience and end up leaving.

    Cons

    - Recently, they had all the nurses TRAIN in phlebotomy for HIV clinic. I don't understand how this responsibility was left to us. There should've been someone who is more experienced (i.e. Phlebotomist) who should be coming to the clinic to draw blood- why do these patients get special treatment? Yes, drawing blood is within our scope of practice, but with 100+ patients each day we get slammed and fall behind.
    - Too many patients; many nurses burned out leaving room for errors.
    - Incompetent/inexperienced doctors ordering medications (potentially dangerous to patients) that have no clue what the correct medication doses are.
    - Lower pay than most private institutions.

    Advice to Management

    - STOP MICROMANAGING (I feel like I am in back in elementary school) and yes, there are "teacher's pets"
    - Treat your employees with respect. DON'T RETALIATE.
    - Tell us you appreciate our work. A lot of us feel unappreciated by management.
    - More pay increases.
