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.

What I like about the company

It’s a good company to work for, challenging to get into but has a lot of benefits if you work full time. I wish the hospital have more culture and diversity and all age group.

What I dislike about the company

Better diversity, within age, or culture. Flexibility’s of hiring different ages. Open to teach more

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.

What I like about the company

They gave me generous PTO once I became benefitted.

What I dislike about the company

I think there’s a need for more transparency. Reasons behind actions.
