laboratory staff... (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 27, 2016
This hospital does not practice what they preach. Ethical behavior is lacking in management, but favoritism is acceptable and obvious throughout the department. Most hospitals encourage employees to report patient care and procedural problems, and then reward you for it. This department will not fix reported issues, and will retaliate against you if you report them. If you decide to apply here, keep your head down and be the voiceless worker bee they want.
They spend a lot of money on flowers and trees, so it looks nice
Favoritism. Does not offer competitive pay. Hires inexperienced staff.
Certified Surgical Technologist (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 14, 2016
A typical day means 7 ENT case back-to-back. Hospital is a teaching institution that is always looking for the next big thing in medicine. Ample opportunity to work with top-noch surgeon and advance equipment.
Ultrasound Technologist (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – February 9, 2016
I enoy every part of working at this hospital. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. A typical work day always includes lots of orginization and strict protocol to follow. Management is very helpful and is there for any concerns or needs of employees and other staff. My coworkers are very good communicators and provide excellent care towards patients. The hardest part of the job is not being able to heal every patient all at once. The most enoyable part of the job is having an extra hand in helping save patients lives.
Good work environment but pay needs to be increased
Account Representative (Current Employee) – Alhambra, CA – February 4, 2016
My supervisor, manager and coworkers are awesome. Vacation, sick time and jury duty hours/days are good.The cons are the pay needs to be increased more in spite of a recent pay increase to match similar jobs with other healthcare provide.

LVN (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – July 15, 2015
The doctors and most co-workers are AMAZING, and work really hard, but there is a BIG disconnect between management and staff, and there is no support what-so-ever. A lot of favoritism, Low Moral, extremely over worked and under-compensated.
NO room to grow - Its not what you know but who you know
Supervisor, Environmental Services (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 25, 2015
Supervised staff, delegated duties to staff, handled large volume of calls, set up for staff meeting, any emergency health hazards around facility, inventory of supplies, ordered supplies and unloaded supplies.
Department is underpaid and understaffed. Admin is unprofessional, many MD is out of school, clueless.... Everyone is afraid to make decision. Patient care is bad, $ is bottom line. East LA culture dominates...
PCT/CNA (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – February 4, 2015
It is fun place to work with different typs of people from all walks of life. this is a hospital school and its always trying new and exciting things. management is ok like in any corp. there's always room for improvement, my co workers are great I love working with them. The hardest thing for me is living over 100 miles from my work and not being able to home with my family at night. I enjoy everything about this hospital
PR & Marketing specialist (Former Employee) – Los Angeles – December 22, 2014
This review pertains to the PR & Marketing department. Employees are not valued and are treated like they are a dime a dozen. Keep piling work on people and blame them when stuff doesn't get done. Not worth the low pay and dwindling benefits. Management is the worst.
Staff RN (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 5, 2014
I started here as a new grad. Overall there are opportunities to learn and grow as a nurse. They offer classes and support. Nurses are protected by union, which is required if you work here. When it comes to management, there is a lot of favouritism. We have good nurses and doctors.
Help Desk Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – July 20, 2014
Keck Medical Center of USC has been the best job I have ever had. I have learn so much from working with such professionals that I am ingratitude towards them for life. Although I am no longer a Trojan, the Trojan culture will always be remembered.
A typical day would be very busy! But that was the fun and exciting part about the job. I learned how to deal with pressure and people at the same time. I learn the importance of a team due to the nature of the job --it's a hospital so peoples lives are at stake!
Everyone there was about helping each other and working as a team. Management had a challenge to undergo with the size of the team and the responsibility that comes with have peoples lives at risk if the team is not up to par. However, I was always treated with courtesy and a joy.
The hardest part of the job consisted of managing it all today. There was over 200 applications we supported, over 300 calls a day in a 8-10 staffed 1st shift, 2-4 staff 2nd shift and 1-2 staff 3rd shift. However once you get use to the flow, once you pick up on the system or establish a system for yourself that works with the team, then it's one of the most enjoyable jobs out there. It was a privilege to work with the Health Sciences Information Technology Team. So much to learn from them as well.
prestigious educational organization, help saving lives, and working with and around computers all day.
Patient Care Technician (PCT) (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – July 15, 2014
a typical day of work for me is very busy. my co-workers are great. very team oriented and helpful. the hardest part of the job is when I get really sick patients who are my age. But the most fun part is the happiness seen on my patients face by the care I give.
Community Benefit and Outreach Intern (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 23, 2014
The Community Benefit and Outreach department is a new department at Keck Medical Center of USC. As an intern, my main responsibility is to help this department develop. During my first days there, I realized that they did not have a database to keep track of all the grants, sponsorships and other funding given to the not-for-profit organizations. As a result I proposed to create a database in Microsoft Access to make the award giving process more efficient. Currently, I am developing this database but I also participate in the different community outreach events we have within the organization such as toy drives and health promotion campaigns. Besides the knowledge I have gained from this department, I have also learned about the different departments within a big medical organization.
In general, it is a great environment with friendly co-workers always willing to help. The organization tried its best to integrate all the workers in activities to interact with each other.
