    I have been working at NorthShore University HealthSystem full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    So far everyone I've encountered has been pleasant to work with. It can be demanding at times, but relaxed at others. Merit increases are on par with other similar hospitals. Competitive 403b retirement matching. Salary is comparable to other hospitals I've worked at.

    Cons

    Leadership's focus tends to be less on doing the right thing, and more on doing the cheapest. They also tend to address problems based on who screams the loudest, not necessarily by need. Doesn't seem to be a lot of room for advancement. Benefits are more expensive for less coverage than I've had in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees. You don't need to quiz them on their job, they do it every day.

    I worked at NorthShore University HealthSystem full-time

    Pros

    good benefits, excellent learning opportunities, good starting point for those entering care management, salary on-par with other hospital systems; supportive co-workers

    Cons

    Disorganized, inept management, no upward mobility, especially for social workers; high turnover rate in department, nurses favored over social workers by managers, high stress level, social workers treated unfairly by management team - inconsistent scheduling, expected to work weekends, holidays, on-call at night (although most other hospital systems have done-away with these practices); poor communication from managers; no work/life balance; no support for new mothers or those with young children; inflexible attitude toward any changes that would benefit employees.

    Advice to Management

    Left after several yrs to work at another hospital system, where employees are treated with respect. Listen to your employees, especially those who are loyal, devoted workers. Stop overworking and overstressing your employees! I decided to change jobs after reading several articles about why good employees quit and all the point/examples given certainly pertain to NSU. Treat your workers with care and respect and they will respond positively - treat them like slaves and they will leave.

    Pros

    This is a good company to grow with

    Cons

    The insurance isn't that great for a hospital. Also the overtime pay is not the same as other companies. It isn't "black or white". Lot gray area there. It never appears to be time and half like other companies

    Pros

    None really, not very many things to be happy about here.

    Cons

    Not enough people working, management is like a revolving door, vacation isn't good, some co-workers are lazy and management doesn't do anything about it. No option to move up
