EmployeeWorked at Northwestern Medical Center, Inc. in Saint Albans, VT at the time of review.

What I like

We work together very well as a team. When we get crazy busy and have too much going on to manage we all help each other out the best we can.

What I dislike

The pay is terrible. We dont get paid very much and it isnt nearly enough compared to what we do.

Suggestions for improvement

Increasing the pay and making the benefits better. The health care is expensive and covers the bare minimum.

EmployeeWorked at Northwestern Medical Center in Chicago, IL at the time of review.

What I like

I've always had lovely managers and great educational support. Compensation is now comparable to the local market. Amazing health benefits,

What I dislike

Not the best work/life balance for working mothers and not great for nurses with seniority.

Suggestions for improvement

Better maternity leave. As is we aren't allowed to take even one sick day for an entire year after maternity leave

EmployeeWorked at Northwestern Medical Center, Inc. in Saint Albans, VT at the time of review.

What I like

We have an amazing emergency department team. We all work together very well, and everyone has great personalities.

What I dislike

The pay isn't that great, being rural. Increase in pay would make me happier.

Suggestions for improvement

Again, an increase in wages, and an update on technology. The ER is up for renovation and it is much needed. We are a little behind with outdated equipment.

EmployeeWorked at Northwestern Medical Center in Chicago, IL at the time of review.

What I like

Excellent 401(k) match and healthcare benefits.

What I dislike

Security is often an issue that is not taken very seriously at all

Suggestions for improvement

Security and visiting policy needs to be updated to the 21st century. These are violent times we live in and upper management does not take security seriously at all. There have been many incidences of trespassers that have all the employees scared to work especially at night
