    Pros

    The experience, training is the best, as long as you keep getting educated there's always advancements.

    Cons

    This can also be a Pros but this facility is extremely busy. You have to know your rights because management can sometimes don't follow protocol.

    Advice to Management

    Obviously not all but you will get those bad apples. My advice is to treat everyone with respect. Not to take things personal and to please follow ptotocol. There is much favoritism in county and that is a fact and proven.

    I worked at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Worked 1:1 with a doctor there and shadowed him. He did a great job showing me the ropes and what being a doctor was about.

    Cons

    No compensation as it was an internship.

    Listen to your doctors when they suggest something that could potentially cut down on the number of HAP cases.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits.
    Lots of resources.

    Cons

    Lots of internal politics starting from the administrators. They play favorites and will set new nurses or contract nurses up to protect they're own, (even if it means placing the patients at risk).

    Advice to Management

    Diversify the ED staff. Stop playing favorites. Spend more time on the floor observing rather than having your favorites report to you their biased observations.

    I worked at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The retirement and health care benefits. The employer matching funds for employee 457 contributions.

    Cons

    The Filipino supervisors create a punitive work environment for minorities and non-Asians.

    Advice to Management

    Somebody needs to report this place to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. An investigation needs
    to be conducted into how these supervisors hire and retain existing staff. There are some real politics being played
    here to the detriment of minorities and non-Asian staff.
