    Pros

    This organization is really built on quality employees. This is one of the main reasons I've stayed as I have. Beautiful new facility in a convenient location. Flexible organization structure with potential for advancement and career growth

    Cons

    Challenging aspects of working here: at times challenging regulatory environment and organizational reaction. Growing pains of the community-based multi facility Health system

    Advice to Management

    Tried to make organizational decisions more evident to the bedside nurse. Sometimes it feels like it is difficult to see the forest through the trees. Organizational steering could be more transparent

    Pros

    Great coworkers and it feels like a family environment.

    Cons

    Upper management is not trusted and it seems as if they are running the organization in the ground. The individuals who are responsible for the financial problems seem to get a promotion and raise while staff is being let go.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a complete overhaul and transparency.

    Pros

    Fairly strong union, great benefits, lots of opportunities for mobility and training if you seek it, basically unlimited overtime if you want.

    Cons

    Slightly lower pay than other San Diego county hospitals, lots of useless mandatory trainings, inefficient patient flow processes. Upper management doesn’t even pretend to care about patient care, only talk about numbers and productivity.

    Advice to Management

    At least pretend to give a sh!t about the patients.

    Pros

    New management team is doing some things.

    I’ve been here for many years and it’s the first time that layoffs didn’t impact the people who do the real work, which was a pleasant surprise.

    Cons

    Many people who’ve been here for a long time who are just collecting a paycheck. Prior CEO was clueless and was invisible to the front line staff.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to hold people accountable. People are starting to see the impact of getting rid of some dead weight a few months ago. Reward good performance and get rid of bad apples.
