    I worked at MacNeal Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the way that the OR staff treated you like family. The PACU/SDS manager was new to the department and treated everyone fairly from what I observed, and she really cares. I had to resign on short notice due to child care issues and she was very understanding, even called me a week later to check on me and my situation!!! My co-workers were also very friendly and knowledgeable and made me feel right at home. I would definitely recommend working here to anyone.

    Cons

    I was only employed here for about 2 months this year, and I did not experience anything negative to speak on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work in choosing positive people to represent your establishment.

    I have been working at MacNeal Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small hospital if you're a new grad. Residents are great to work with. That will be mainly who you deal with. Most not all are pretty cool and good to work with. Techs are iffy most are good but boy do you have the bad ones.

    Cons

    The policalness, girl groups, women with nasty attitudes all the time. I've seen bullying amongst nurses. They are way way too undertaffed. 6 patients on a Tele step down icu floor. It's way too easy to lose your license here. Most just get 6 months experience and are out. Between the pay, the mean Co workers, and the patient overload you'll be stressed to the max.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the favortism. Hire more nurses per shift to help with patient overload. You're killing patients if you don't do this especially on those hard floors like 36s or 31s.

    Pros

    Great place to start career, but if you wish to develop professional skills, this hospital is lax

    Needs improvement in management selection, negative cultural environment,

    Pros

    If you want to get experience--sweat shop style--- get it at MacNeal.

    Cons

    Cheap employer, you will wait forever to get the supply you need to do your job. They minimize everything, including employee's basic needs, and still expect the place to run.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of here.

    I have been working at MacNeal Hospital part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    pay not horrible, a couple coworkers are friendly

    Cons

    ridiculous computer charting system, super slow and very inefficient. patient rooms extremely tiny, can't work properly, and patients are at risk for falling due to the obstacles in such tiny rooms. supervisors are unintelligent, lazy and uncaring especially towards their staff for whom they send admit after admit without making sure the nurses aren't already drowning, building falling apart, disgustingly dirty. looks like you could get ebola just from the employee garage!

    Advice to Management

    a complete overhaul is the only way macneal hospital in berwyn can improve. they have these "meetings" for improvement, but nothing changes for the better. then when there is a change put in place, those who the change effects are never included in the proposed change.

    Pros

    Benefits were a plus. The morning shift is perfect. Great way to advance into other departments.

    Cons

    favoritism shouldn't have been an issue, but it was present. Seniority doesn't deter you from working properly.

    Advice to Management

    should have had higher staff presence for weekend shift
