    I worked at Palomar Health part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Social workers have assistants and UR nurses to assist them with discharge planning. Social workers work closely with doctors and nurses to achieve hospital goals and remain in budget. Social workers are tight knit.

    Cons

    Although social workers are close, everyone talks badly behind everyone's back when someone leaves the room. Upper management does not seem to care about their staff, including their staff needs and patient needs. The social work department also has a bad reputation. Low values as the main focus is to discharge patients rather than focus on patient's needs.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage and acknowledge staff for their hard work. Acknowledge when staff members ask for help and help them! They are just trying to do their job.

    I worked at Palomar Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and salary were good-especially if you have been there a while

    Cons

    The HR department is a mess. The whole system-if you aren't on supervisor/director good side, you will be pushed out at some point.

    Advice to Management

    You need to overhaul upper management-especially those that have been there for a long period of time.

    Pros

    Palomar Health pays their employees well. Benefits are some of the best out there. There are opportunities to move up and transfer to different departments.

    Cons

    Full Time positions are very hard to achieve. There is a union so the senior people get priority of opportunities. Parking is not convenient for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Give everyone an equal chance at promotion opportunities. Stop favoritism. Praise valuable employees. Train supervisors to be more professional.

    I worked at Palomar Health (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is so nice there. Even though I was there for my externship I was treated like one of the Phlebotomists.

    Cons

    Parking is so far away for employees. That's about the only horrible con I have to say about it. The cafeteria is a bit pricey.
