    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

    Greedy CEO closed the San Clemente campus, leaving many patients without reasonable access to care. So sad,

    Don’t be in healthcare in any capacity if you only count the bottom line.

    Majority of team members are great. Good benefits and hours.
