    Pros

    Good management, good direction, good people

    Cons

    Working in an inpatient hospital environment presents many challenges, change is extremely slow, basic patient needs are often neglected due to policies and industry practices and the culture of the hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to basics patient needs, offer more alternative treatments, make sure to get people moving out of bed as much as possible, and provide the support to RN's to do so.

    I worked at John Muir Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great staff & teamwork.

    Cons

    It changed a lot since 2011. More emphasis is placed on financial gain than patient safety. The organization expects status quo and is not fond of employees speaking up about patient safety issues.

    Staffing is always short and based on numbers instead of the patient's acuity. It is not uncommon to miss breaks. Nurse bully from the top-down is not uncommon and it causes patient safety issues.

    This organization does not seem in-line with its own branding and mission unless it benefits them.

    Advice to Management

    Find a new CEO that actually cares about the community and patient safety. End nurse bullying. Stop putting millions in your pocket, while harming your staff. Does not seem Magnet at all.

    Pros

    Friendly staff, free parking, nice building.

    Cons

    Unsafe patient assignments, no break nurse, old equipment, and lack of transparency in regards to pay and retirement matching. Nurses need to unionize!

    Advice to Management

    It is illegal to have nurses "listen out" for each other's patients during breaks! Stop violating patient ratio laws and hire break nurses!

    Pros

    Many people stay forever... if you are ok with lack of upward mobility, it can be a steady job. I enjoyed working with my team. The health system is very well regarded and provides excellent care.

    Cons

    Administrative staff have very poor PTO. National Holidays subtracted from PTO bank and as well as mandatory ‘admin’ days off. Company is trying to cut costs at every end. Lots of reorganization.

    Pros

    Great team work with co workers.
    Competitive Salary
    Good support services.

    Cons

    Make changes just for the sake of changing all disguised under transformation. Employees are not benefitting from changes.
    Lack of support from management due to overtaxing the managers and case managers.

    Rocky EMR.

    Hard to place patients due to lack of support for departments our patients are referred to as outpatients, outpatient rehabilitation, diabetes Center, wound Care Center, home health, and difficult to get authorizations.

    Advice to Management

    Fight for the front line and our support services.

    I have been working at John Muir Health full-time

    Pros

    Honestly, there aren't any for me anymore, I will be leaving soon. The pay is good for what I do, but the cons far outweigh this perk.

    Cons

    Upper management is disorganized. They go one direction, then change their minds. Our business model is not sustainable. People are losing their jobs right and left, and good people are leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. You are a mess, and have let go of all the good ones.
