    I have been working at NorthShore University HealthSystem full-time

    Pros

    Mostly nice staff, good equipment, I'm on the resource team so I make my schedule and work as much or as little as I want to. Located in a good neighborhood, nice doctors for the most part.

    Cons

    One of the hospitals has been short staffed lately, so higher patient load, which means standard of care is lowered when you are understaffed, meanwhile, Northshore patients still expect 5 star.

    Pros

    Very supportive environment within HR, company provides great benefits and have great doctors. There are always opportunities to be promoted and this company prefers internal candidates.

    Hesitant to update their technology and using old methods. Not always willing to listen and implement feedback. Wish there were more recognition programs for employees and better communication for HR department

    Be open to progression and new strategies. Listen to feedback. Be open to new technology

    Pros

    Nice hospital, very organized. Great doctors and nurses.

    Cons

    Management always wants you to work more and more. If you are hourly, you have to finish everything in the allotted time which can be very stressful. If you are salary, you are expected to work more with no extra pay. No respect for privacy when you are off work.

    Advice to Management

    People need to have good work and life balance in order to be a productive employee.
