    I worked at NorthShore University HealthSystem full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked with a great MD and some other great physicians and nurses/ M A's. Fantastic patients for the most part.

    Cons

    They hire too many incompetent/not educated people and call them medical assistants. Very misleading when patients think they have had proper education. Often find lazy co-workers who should be laid off.

    I worked at NorthShore University HealthSystem full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My coworkers were a great and it was one of the positive things that I remember. They were very supportive of me. Much like others have mentioned, the benefits are very fair. For the most part, there was some flexibility with my schedule as I began with ~20 hours then fluctuated between 30-35 hours until I went back to school, where it fell back down to ~20 hours.

    Note: my experience with this company is only with the outpatient clinic side, so I cannot comment on the hospital side of things.

    Cons

    Trust and communication from management could have been better. I had two supervisors that I reported to and information would be lost between the two. Unfortunately I cannot come up with specific examples at the moment, but I believe others have mentioned how poorly communication can be. I also felt that I was pretty flexible and willing to do a lot for my department, but it was not reciprocated. They were unwilling to be flexible with my school schedule, which I felt was allowed with an ex-coworker. I might sound salty, but hey, that's how I feel. Also, it was pretty upsetting to realize a coworker (who was hired a year after me) was receiving a higher pay than me and another coworker, even though we had the same responsibilities. There isn't room for growth at that position and to be honest, the position is kind of a joke. I suppose it's great if you are hoping to get into graduate school as it offers "experience" in this specific field. Another caveat would also be the issue of being understaffed and having a fairly high turnover rate. During my time there, four different aides left (although it was to pursue school) as well as ~5 therapists (of all modalities).

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees, find what their skillsets are and utilize them to their best ability.
