    I worked at Loyola Medicine full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The interdepartmental comradery is more apparent than at other places. nurses, techs, residents, housekeeping, etc all speak to each other and don't form clicks.

    Cons

    Low pay, overworked, low morale, understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people.

    I worked at Loyola Medicine full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good location offers many different units to work in....it is a teaching hospital

    Cons

    They don’t treat their employees well, the pay is well below what other hospitals pay, when I worked in NICU I was pulled weekly and mandatory down staffed so much that I used 340 hours of vacation time in one year just to pay my bills,

    Advice to Management

    Treat seasoned employees with respect they are the ones that teach the young nurses

    Pros

    Benefits, new and remodeled buildings, coffee shops, two cafeterias, valet parking for employees, shuttle service around campus and to train stop, security, possible overtime.

    Large campus and lots of walking, a lot of work with low pay, parking requires monthly dues.

    Living wages need to be considered

    I worked at Loyola Medicine full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    All the perks of a great name, employee benefits are okay(but a lot has changed since being taken over Trinity Health), and an okay stepping stone.

    Cons

    Does not promote within especially if you are a person of color (black), does not develop or promote growth. You are pigeon holed in one area and one area only.
    Managers are under educated and not fair. Loyola is not a hospital its a Cooperation!

    Advice to Management

    Try thinking outside the box and take better care of the employees you have by treating them fair and making them feel like you care.... Aren't they apart of "treating the human spirit" or is this a lie too!?! Promote growth within and hire management that have a personality, an opinion, and liberal.

    "RN"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Loyola Medicine part-time

    Pros

    Nice Coworkers! Experience at an Academic Medical Center!

    Cons

    I expected more from an academic medical center, however, the unit I worked on was poorly funded, little supplies, and had outdated computer systems that are not up to date. Hospital is unfortunately dirty in many areas and rooms are run down along with limited furniture for patients. Poor security! Paper charting and double charting...come on its 2018!

    Advice to Management

    Increase security, clean your hospital, update your units and declutter them (they are not all updated). Make sure your nurses have the equipment they need to care for there patients. Happy Nurses Equal Happy patients!

    Pros

    You build a great relationship with fellow staff members, it becomes a second family.

    Cons

    Being floated from office to office with no set schedule can really get in the way of home life.

    Advice to Management

    Hear us out when we have concerns and complaints instead of turning the other cheek.
