    I worked at Northwest Community Hospital/Healthcare part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The hospital is really big and really nice. Has a lot of nice amenities that smaller hospitals don't, like a parking garage, plenty of access to food and drink ( including complimentary coffee) 24 hours/day from the cafeteria, and the salary is generous compared to other hospitals. The pharmacy is extremely busy so there was always opportunity for overtime which is great if you need it! It was a great learning experience also. Perfect job for those who want to learn and like to be challenged!

    Cons

    Extremely fast paced job...stay in shape because your body and feet will feel it!
    Can't really say anything too negative about it.

    Advice to Management

    I think a better work flow would be beneficial for maximum productivity!

    Pros

    It used to be a great place with management caring about their employees. But that has changed.

    Cons

    Previously was a family oriented place where everyone smiled and said hello. Now it is just a business.

    Listen to your employees. Value them.

    I worked at Northwest Community Hospital/Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are good and some of the people that work there are great people to build relationships with. The cafeteria has an eclectic menu weekly.

    Cons

    Leadership needs to take the time to get to know each employee and take an active stance on the floor. If you are constantly receiving bad reviews about the department then leadership should be re-evaluated!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Get new management from top to bottom!!!!!!!

    I worked at Northwest Community Hospital/Healthcare (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Being able to help others.

    Cons

    They violate HIPPA violations left and right. 80% of the staff are only there for the money. Patient care is last!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees! They are most unprofessional individuals to work for. My Director had a mistress at work. Goes to show what kind of manager I had. If he didn't care about his family how could he care about his team!

    Takes a long time to implement evidence-based practices, but everyone is committed to put the work in to make the changes possible.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to front-line staff
