Suggestions for improvement

  • Have the medical staff understand what bad data entry does downstream, and have people walk the shift with a nurse once a quarter. Appreciate the other shoes.

Good people that does know their stuff. People in c level are actual doctors and healthcare data driven.

What I dislike about the company

Stop adding tasks to overloaded people without adding resources sooner

Company Culture

For the most part, colleagues are pleasant and hardworking. As with any organization, there are various personalities. But I’ve met some of the best human beings through this job

Internal Communication

Communication is one of the areas that our system can most improve on.

Career Development

Could be better

Challenging Work

The most challenging aspect is juggling the many responsibilities, but it’s manageable.

Suggestions for improvement

  • One improvement I’d make in our workplace culture is to more readily support education and training, as well as accountability for learning about and correcting mistakes.

What I like about the company

Our mission and the population we serve are inspiring, and drive us to come to work every day. I enjoy working to improve patients’ health and wellness. I feel we do support each other in the work we do.

What I dislike about the company

I think that communication is an area of improvement. Often last minute changes have to take place, and that is understandable, but more prompt communication of the changes would be helpful so that everyone is on the same page and confusion is minimized.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would say that they need to have a more efficient system for their ER. The ER has a lot of homeless with really bad hygiene and I can’t handle that.

What I like about the company

I think there are a few perks that make it worth the annoyances. First of all, employees get a pension if they are full time. This perk speaks volumes. Also, every fiscal year, there is a 3% raise and a reimbursement for educational purposes, which I enjoy. I take advantage of these opportunities.

What I dislike about the company

There are so many. First of all, the parking situation is a nuisance. We’re located in inner city Oakland and there is a lot of crime nearby, so I have to park far away from the facility. The offsite parking shuttle only comes once every 15 mins and that can be a waste of time when I’m on a time constraint. Also, there’s very low chance of getting a promotion and unfair labor practices when it comes to rewarding a new opportunity.
