Coworkers good, management bad
Stationary Engineer (Current Employee), Santa Barbara, CAOctober 4, 2013
Pros: compensation and benefits
Cons: management, commute
Management has two main attitudes: If you are not on my level or above, you do not exist, and I am in charge and I can do WHATEVER I want - be it unethical, unlawful, or just plain mean.
There is no training and little documentation. Industry best practices are ignored - they would rather do it their way.
Avoid this company unless you can ignore your – more... common sense, go along to get along, and do things their way. – less

A really nice hospital to work at and definitely room to grow
Food Service Representative (Former Employee), Santa Barbara, CAOctober 1, 2013
Pros: very nice facility
Cons: commute
This is a really nice hospital to work for. The facility is beautiful and nice and the majority of the staff is very nice and professional. They really know how to care for their patients here, and management really knows how to take care of their employees. I enjoyed communicating with the patients and letting them know that they are our top priority. – more... It's a hospital so you never really know what to expect usually around certain times of the year we had more patients, other times we had less there was always something to do whether it was to stock the pantry, collect patients trays, distribute menus, take orders, clean up, or orientate new patients. – less

Great place to work, the people you work with are great, you meet many different people from the community and working relationships. A typical day is not so typical. Very unpredictable for this job which is what is exciting about it.

staff members generally a good group of people to work with
Staff nurse (Former Employee), Galesburg, ILAugust 18, 2012
Pros: relatively close to work
Cons: poor management; harrassment by some management to some individuals
Management was issuing verbal and written warning to staff members, ith little credibility. I was feeling that staff members had no job security whatsoever. If someone in management had it in for you, they would find a way to fire you.

Friendly Busy work place
Medical Surgical Unit Secretary (Current Employee), Woodsville, NHJuly 15, 2012
Pros: community sense, staff is friendly
Cons: breaks are hard to cove sometimes
a typical day at Cottage is a busy one. there is always something to do. If not in your department in another.
I have learned alot here. in a company that cross trains you in multiple departments you have to know a lot. Th e cross training mixes it up so you are not working a stagnant desk job. The hardest part of the job is that you never get to the – more... end of your work list. you leave your work day with a sense of projects unfinished. I personally have a n issue with this. I like arriving the next work day with a clean slate. The most enjoyable part of the job are the patients. I love them! You get to know them and they know you and you build a repore with them. – less
