    I worked at Methodist Hospital of Southern California full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful facility
    Cafeteria food is delicious and always fresh.
    Facility is always clean and kept up.
    Some friendly employees

    Cons

    High employee turn over rate
    Over worked and under paid.
    Staff doesn't seem to care much about patients and their concerns.
    Favoritism towards the non hardworking while the hard workers get over looked.
    Management is cold hearted and not understanding.
    Pay rate is low.
    Would cut shifts with out notifying employee.
    Management is terrible at being a good example to employees

    Advice to Management

    Be more caring and understanding towards your employees and maybe the turn over rate wouldn't be so high.
    Be fair to all employees.
    Increase pay rate.

    Pros

    Very busy, face paced environment. Always something that needs to be addressed or worked on.

    Cons

    Lack of work/life balance. Unmanageable workloads. PTO accrual where Sick and Vacation hours are in the same bank (You only accrue 2 weeks max). High turnover rates, especially in the IT department. Too many employees go on Leave possibly due to the high stress levels.

    Advice to Management

    Address the issues in your workforce. They are more than willing to go above and beyond, however, there needs to be a balance in work/life or compensate accordingly. Manage nepotism in the organization (i.e., why is the President's unqualified son still working there?)

    I worked at Methodist Hospital of Southern California part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really liked the people here everyone was helpful, and the environment feels like everyone was a giant family.

    Cons

    I hated being flexed and cancelled. Basically cancelled in the morning then called to come back in just to flex. I hated how they tried to cut pennies and dimes in every corner. Underpaid than surrounding hospitals and definitely under appreciated. Several co-workers left due to the fact that we never got full-time hours and were required to use personal vacation/sick time to cover those hours due to the fact that we were constantly being sent home.

    I worked at Methodist Hospital of Southern California full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Great people to work with for the most part
    - The community of the employees has a real desire to be like a family even though Administration no longer fosters a family atmosphere
    - The work is enjoyable

    Cons

    - Employees have not been given a real raise in over 5 years.
    -Promises made to promote were delayed and rejected due to politics and personal vendettas to keep costs low and keep their own job looking good to Administration for more than a year before I quit

    Advice to Management

    Management should not make false promises to employees because as you can see, it will reflect poorly on the entire organization. Requests for promotions should go through more than one person for review and approval to avoid individuals in administration denying employees their hard earned promotions just so they can look good and keep costs down.

    Pros

    Most of your peers are good people to be around.

    Cons

    Top management fails to share important information with staff. Information that is shared has been watered down and sanitized compared to the actual truth.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with information and involve employees on the decision making process. This isn't a public company catering to shareholders. In this case, you need to listen to employees and patients for the direction. Don't just do what you believe to be correct because it worked at other places.

    I have been working at Methodist Hospital of Southern California full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    In general, the staff is friendly and helpful. It is a nice family atmosphere. The longer one is here, the more comfortable it feels.

    Cons

    The current environment is not supportive of the staff in general. Some of the new management team appear to spend money freely on lunches, dinners, gifts, office renovations while reducing and eliminating benefits for the "rank and file." It is not a morale booster. People have been hired as well-paid directors while others have been loyally pulling their weight and more trying to fill in gaps, yet with seemingly no recognition or financial remuneration.

    Advice to Management

    New leaders, you CAN learn from people who have been here and who have been doing their jobs well. Stop assuming that you know more than the people here. Any great leader will listen to those who know their jobs and will listen to their advice. This ship is headed straight for the rocks. There is no loyalty left. People are leaving faster than rats jumping from a sinking ship. Excuse the cliches, but that is exactly what it seems like.
