    I have been working at Salinas Valley Memorial full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    We have good benefits. Great qualified employees. Despite cuts, we are still pulling together for the good of the patients.

    Cons

    Greediness has taken over administration members that only think of making themselves richer and richer at the cost of the employees morale.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and motivate employees with your good actions rather than by pushing them around. Karma is coming after yuo...

    I have been working at Salinas Valley Memorial full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Visibility by KSBW and patient safety. Most employees work well together and share knowledge. Negotiations are still ongoing with unions.

    Cons

    There are many unforeseen layoffs where the dictates and lies of directors is never reviewed by any higher authority. Employees feel the HR Department is useless because it always sides with management staff, employees have no recourse. Don't waste your time.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the integrity of your direct reports.

    Pros

    The hospital has Great Pay, one of the best benefits package (health and retirement) , generous time off the longer you work there, ease of travel to location

    Cons

    Having to deal with union issues, politics between department heads/directors and senior management, some of who you know gets or keeps your job (though this has decreased), off site parking while the construction continues
