    I have been working at MemorialCare Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great employees and team work is what makes this hospital great. The hospital is nursing driven, and builds nurses to become highly skilled individuals.

    Cons

    The hospital has been going through a lot of changes, which may push employees to having to work differently and be more engaged. Not everyone can be so adaptive.

    Advice to Management

    Management, so far, has been nothing unexpected, with some managers being very lenient, others very strict. Everyone does a great job, but the hospital would improve with better collaboration between units, improving the efficiency of resource utilization.

    Pros

    Good reputation health care system overall in Southern California, and it is one of the fast growing company and always working towards ahead of the curve.

    Cons

    As healthcare keep shifting, company have hard time changing culture within workforce. all non-exempt employees are hourly, and there mandatory flex (furlough) days using your own PTO.

    Advice to Management

    There are lack of career opportunities, growth and training to non-management staff. There are no budget to send staff to trainings and conferences.

    I have been working at MemorialCare Health System part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many great and fun people to work with. For RN's it is a great place to get experience for your first 1-2 years of nursing.

    Cons

    Management is weak. Problems are never fixed. IF they are fixed, very quick "easy way out" fixes are implemented. Very low morale. Doing more with less, but expecting production to be very efficient. You will not feel appreciated and they know this is a problem. They are trying to improve on that. Poor retention rate.

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations of the amount of time needed to complete expected duties required by many levels of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Examine other health care systems who have cut management and mid level supervisory positions which resulted in loss of cohesive departmental care for the patient.

    Pros

    Beautiful campus. Open to giving staff tools needed to do job.

    Cons

    Benefits including vacation and holiday pay is horrible. Lots of cliques. You are not safe if youre not in the "in" crowd. People dont seem to be placed in their proper positions. Positions and wages are hand created for certain people. There is a boys club that is sexist.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs better training on actual managment. People that are qualified to manage should be given managment positions.

    I have been working at MemorialCare Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    MemorialCare offers their full-time employees a great benefits package, more than comparable to top tier jobs requiring fine technical skills. The Opportunities to lateral into different positions is massive, and there are many more doors that will open themselves up to you, as you get to refine what you want to do in healthcare. MemorialCare appreciates their employees, and they will go out of their way to show it.

    Cons

    As with anyplace of work, there are politics. As with most healthcare related jobs, people do not seem to want to retire, especially when it is a good environment to work in; this may make it a little bit more difficult if you are wanting to work your way up the ladder quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Offer incentives to move up and out (retirement incentives). This will foster fresh talent, and promote employee satisfaction/motivation.

    Battle between Union and Management

    Advice to Management

    Float pool management needs to be turned over to more qualified people. The current management have nothing better to do then look to fire new nurses.
