Did not enjoy working here
Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJanuary 8, 2018
The management here is very abrasive. They have a tendency to burn out there employees.

I had found while being employed here that there was a high turn over rate on employees due to over working and under staffing.

Nice place to work
Medical Secretary (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 22, 2017
Truly enjoyed working here. A typical day at work was arriving at my desk and getting busy with patient phone calls, typing, and filing. I learned about different sicknesses and treatments. The culture was sometimes stressful and competitive among coworkers. The hardest part of the job was adjusting. The most enjoyable part of the job was spending time in and around the job location.

Not for Nurses
Clinical Nurse, Stem Cell Transplant/Oncology (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 11, 2017
Wonderful coworkers, not a great place to advance. This company does not stand behind nursing staff the way other large hospitals in Chicago do - the pay is much lower than market value.

ER (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 5, 2017
NMH ER is one of the best places to work in the city of Chicago. Very fast and challenging Level 1 trauma center. Team work is amazing in this department and management is great. The only downside is the low pay compared to other places and tuition reimbursement, which again, is not as good as other hospitals.
Pros
Team work
Cons
Low pay

Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 4, 2017
Made some of my best friends on this unit. Very special co-workers and patients. Northwestern has a poor education assistance program and the lowest paid RNs in the greater Chicago area. Do not care about retention since its an urban area and they can always get brand new nurses fresh out of school.

Phlebotomist (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 30, 2017
Inpatient management is horrible. To much gossip and drama. Management plays into it and makes things worse. It's like working at a pre-school. If you can tolerate all that the benefits are good.
Pros

Staff CT/MRI Technologist (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 18, 2017
I don't remember much about the place since it has been about 20 years ago. It's a big medical center in the heart of Chicago near north downtown area on the banks of lake Michigan.
