Promotes education and professional development. If it weren't for CSMC, I likely would not have had the motivation to obtain my first certification, and although I left, the motivation continues to push me to getting a second.
Micromanagement, bullying, favoritism, inconsistency. The usual you see in any work environment, except micromanagement was to a particular extreme (of course, this depends on your unit). Participation in work committees was not only available, but felt expected (if not at least highly incentivized via yearly pay raise).

-One of the top hospitals in the country -Often ranked in the top 3 hospitals in California -Higher hourly for CMAs than average in the U.S. -Ability to work along side and learn from world leading surgeons and dedicated nurses -Work culture is friendly for the most part and can promote team building -Unique experience overall that can prep preMed, prePA and preNursing employees -Promotion of diversity and inclusivity
-Competitive attitudes within the culture -Long hour drives when travelling in and out of the city (can take an hour minimum to drive to work and up to 2 hours driving home, especially during holidays) -Bonuses every year rather than intentional and fair raises -Managers’ bias hurts clinical staff employees when it comes to pay raises (for instance managers will gently push employees to be proactive by suggesting “projects” to improve clinical work flow. In truth these “projects” may or may not be considered during your annual evaluation for a pay raise and will by no means guarantee any kind raise or a raise that is fair for employee) -Sarcastic communications = Modern day bullying -Favoritism among employees -Patients seem to always be right when they address clinical staff (even when they cross boundaries) -The hospital tends cater to the needs of the doctors more than the clinical teams who help support them -While the hospital promotes diversity and inclusivity, the doctors of color are often treated differently than their peers who are of lighter or whiter color complexities

so many great benefits! Great pay! flexible hours and remote work for some roles! substantial Impact in the community and abroad!
Still working on some issues that a majority of hospitals have. Rapid changes can be stressful.

I work as a pharmacy technician with the Transitions of Care Department (TOC). We never see the central pharmacy, medications (aside from monthly assigned outdates) or other pharmacy staff really because we are a separate department and do medication histories only which is great. Cedars is great for its benefits and community. Their systems are up to date and facilities are well kept.
Not much room for growth and Pay is not competitive. We also are doing a lot more and have expanded, yet our compensation does not match. The annual merit increases are also poor. It seems to take a while to be able to advance to the next level title (Pharm tech II, III)

Working here has been a breath of fresh air. You are constantly learning new things. You come along obstacles but thats everywhere.
Very understaffed. You may get a lot of schedule changes.

unfortunate that they do not treat their nursing staff as well as they should.
