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

    Pros

    This is a regional boutique healthcare system. They do not live by their iABC values. Low compassion, no integrity. Always focuses on the monies to keep Corporate living in luxury.

    Cons

    The highest levels of senior leadership at the corporate levels are disingenuous and hypocritical. Check out their luxurious corporate headquarters vs how the campuses, especially the campuses that have poor people look, feel, are. Layoffs at the expense of bonuses for system CEO, COO, CFO, etc. are appalling. Go check out the Fountain Valley parking lot...full of luxury cars while the actual hospitals experience cut after cut after cut. Do not work at MC until the highest levels of senior leadership at Corporate in Fountain Valley are held accountable by the board and are gone.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Corporate senior leadership.

    I worked at MemorialCare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Have the opportunity to help many patients in southern California and there are many very dedicated employees who are loyal and well-intentioned. Might get better if absorbed by a larger, more sophisticated

    Cons

    Executive leadership is stuck int he past and has difficulty trusting those not in the inner circle. Opportunity for promotion is dependent on perceptions of a few key leaders rather than trust placed in many leaders. Some executives are amazing but are marginalized by other executives. The company is stagnant from a growth perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Start: Find innovative people within the organization, those that stand out as different from what you are comfortable with and give them the opportunity to shake it up.
    Stop: The inner circle of a few key executives, it is more visible than you think and counterproductive.
    Continue: To have confidence in the amazing people in the organization and empower them to do more.

    I have been working at MemorialCare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been in healthcare in many capacities over the past 13 years. During this time I've worked for and with many hospitals. I've never felt more supported or empowered than I do with MemorialCare. They truly value employees and leadership encourages innovation.

    Cons

    The pay is on the lower end of national averages for IT, but the benefits are good and culture is warm.

    I worked at MemorialCare full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great healthcare benefits are available for families.

    Cons

    MemorialCare continues to go downhill. Leadership is focused on "leaning" out departments but with that comes unrealistic expectations on existing staff members and pressure from leadership to implement nonrealistic deadlines and create non sustainable results based on resources. People are leaving like a revolving door. Morale at an all-time low. The selling point of work-life balance and living "the Good Life" with health and fitness is a nice front but doesn't actually happen. It is a cut-throat, cliquey, and unhealthy working environment. Only after moving on to a healthy work environment did I realize how horrible it really was. HR is drinking the Kool Aid and does nothing to support its employees.

    I have been working at MemorialCare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Helping patients, excellent medical professionals

    Cons

    Management is horrible. Favoritism, bullying, hardworkers are overworked and abused, lazy workers get away with bad behavior: excessive breaks, not held accountable. Upper-managemnet and HR are useless.

    Advice to Management

    You are losing good employees and hurting patients
