    Pros

    John Muir Health provides its employees with excellent benefits, opportunities for growth, incentives to stay healthy and help the environment. The staff works together as a cohesive unit. I feel like I am working with my closest friends and family members, rather than coworkers. Never have I worked in an environment that is so friendly. The various disciplines work well together towards the goals of providing excellent patient care, safety, and satisfaction.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, due to the economy, we are no longer reimbursed for continuing education.

    Advice to Management

    Be open and honest with your staff. Do not try to be a scapegoat or avoid confrontation.

    Pros

    There is great administrative support, teamwork in the unit, and John Muir Health provides great benefits. Providing quality care is a priority.

    Cons

    My only concern is that health care reform will put the organization in the position of not being able to provide some of the great things that they do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work - listening to employees, recognizing excellence and clearing communicating the direction the organization is going.

    Pros

    JMH is an excellent place to gain good experience as a new RN (<3 years experience) especially in the Surgery Department where there are 13 rooms and multitude of specialities to be exposed to.

    Cons

    The staff rotation, we employ a lot of travelers year round to supplement our staff, training them over and over again can get tedious. And the vast about of various surgeries performed, it can become very challenging keep up to spend with each case. You become a Jack of all trades but Master of none.

    Advice to Management

    Finding a permaent PM charge RN that is fair and understands the demands of the 12 shift RN.

    I worked at John Muir Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    excellent room for growth, great benefits! excellent learning experience, able to work around your schedule!

    Cons

    the turnover of managers at 1 particular site! the hiring of externs just because lack of staff and many are ignoring the patients as they gossip and talk on their cell phones, ive waited on hold for over 1/2 hour, the patients should feel safe and the staff should be more sympethic to their situation as we all would want to feel the same if we are in the same situation. the hiring of younger unskilled asympethic individuals per one hiring manager at the concord office stated ( we want young blood so that we may train them how we want them as they are set in their ways) compared to mature and very highly skilled individuals. ive work for a few major hospitals,stanford and uc davis and i learned how their systems worked and how their facility ran, i am able to adapt to any medical setting due to my experience, i see it as a little discrimination and after 9 years of dedicated service and 8 very much younger individuals whom were at the job 7 years less then me and my 20 plus years experience i did feel like i was discriminated against.

    Advice to Management

    your operations are greatly appreciated! you strive to make employees happy and the operations run smoother, you also take seriously any problems that arise and i believe john muir can only get better! i would look closley at the individuals that are hired over ones with much more expierence and longevity and see how many younger and underskilled individuals are being placed over ones like myself whom have much more expierence and more mature or i do see a lawsuit regarding discrimination.

    I worked at John Muir Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Prestige. Great town Walnut Creek. Well respected place. New construction. Generous with giving to good places. Try hard to do good work (Cancer Institute/Genetic Counseling). Many very very hard working and caring people there in many departments. The two I mention were very devoted to doing great work. Many women. Everyone works to get along and do laughing also. Win "best of's" and get great reviews and certifications. Very strong devoted axillary and many many volunteers and volunteer hours. Treat volunteers in departments like gold. Great computer and management classes and intranet classifieds and weekly paper of news.

    Cons

    They "don't like to hire more people in support positions that do not directly make money like a billable doctor would create. At the time if someone left they spread the work around to others instead of hiring a replacement. They say and I saw--hospitals move at a Glacial pace which I didn't know. I don't care for a glacial pace and change structure. Cost cutting when budget got difficult last 3rd of year. Everyone not nailed down got let go.

    I worked at John Muir Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people I've worked with was what made me want to come to work everyday. In my department , everybody worked as a team and was always there to help each other out.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of working for this company is when the laboratory was sold and many employees were laid off, the company should have shown more effort to place them in different areas in the hospitals/departments. I heard some employers who applied for position that fits them weren't chosen but the position was given to someone else other than former employer of john muir .
