    I worked at Rush Oak Park Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Free parking and pay was decent as were the benefits.

    Cons

    It's who you know and not what you know. Favoritism is absurd. If someone in upper management does not like you, you are done. You can be professional, productive, a team-player but in the end it doesn't matter. I have never witnessed such pettiness from adults, let alone ones that claim to be professionals.

    Cons

    I was working at oak park and gave my resignation letter. the supervisor was very unprofessional when I resigned!! We had a conversation about me resigning at the front desk in front of patients and other staff members.. Horrible Management!!!!

    Advice to Management

    They need to attend leadership training because they don't have a clue on managing anyone!!!

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Rush Oak Park Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, small community hospital feel where you get to know most of your co-workers on a first name basis fairly easily. Flexible schedule in my department--can't speak for all departments however.

    Cons

    Poorly managed in terms of feedback to supervisors--I don't feel there is good accountability on their part from upper management. Little chance/opportunity for advancement (again, in my department) or increase in salary beyond blanket raise that goes out to the entire hospital. Favoritism exists here--I've witnessed it first hand and observed a director get fired (at least one of the many reasons) because of it. Also, little marketing in and outside of the hospital that affects awareness of therapy services.

    Advice to Management

    Peer review of managers/supervisors from their staff submitted to leadership (in other words, reviews of directors and supervisors should go to VPs and CEO)--should be conducted anonymously I feel to promote honesty without fear of retribution--despite the culture the company is trying to foster, it's still there.

    Pros

    The physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, ER Techs, and the ancillary staff are wonderful.

    Cons

    Horrible support from administration. Very low pay compared to similar hospitals in the state. Very dissatisfied with pay and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your advanced practice providers with more respect. There is blatant disrespect by administration. We cost less to the organization and bring in good revenue yet we are treated as second class.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Rush Oak Park Hospital (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strong culture of nurse empowerment and career development.

    Cons

    Charting could be streamlined. I spent a more time charting than I feel was needed, to the detriment of patient care.

    Advice to Management

    More resources should be allocated to staff retention, especially in middle management.
