I enjoy my job at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in Labor & Delivery, I just need to work close to home
CA-Labor & Delivery RN (Current Employee), San Jose, CAAugust 30, 2014
Pros: reliable hours, 1:1 nurse/patient ratio/great teamwork/great management
Cons: recently hours cut forcing me to work more days/wk/away from home & kids
I have been working happily as an L&D RN for the past eight years at Valley Medical Center but lately I have needed to add days to my schedule for the hours cut from 12hrs to 8hrs per shift. For this reason, I need to work closer to home in order to see my kids more.
My typical day at work includes a laboring patient 1:1, or circulating in the OR, or – more... managing a preterm, gestational diabetic, or gestational hypertensive patient. Many of our patients here at VMC are Spanish speaking and I am bilingual.
The hardest part of my job is inducing a patient who has a fetal demise.
The most enjoyable part of my job is sharing the miracle of life with a happy couple. – less

Staff RN CCU (Former Employee), Renton, WAAugust 11, 2014
Pros: cohesive staff & very team oriented; fantastic doctors
Cons: not enough breaks
The best place I've ever worked! CCU is busy and patients are very sick. Everyone pitches in and all work together. They have state of the art equipment and supplies to aid in taking the best possible care of the patients. There is an excellent working relationship between the ICU doctors and ICU/CCU nurses. I wish I still worked there!

Lab Support (Former Employee), renton,waMay 22, 2014
Pros: discount on food in cafeteria which is located upstairs, great benefits, pay
Cons: unappreciative management, favoritism, back stabbing
I had to let go of my job that i worked over 8 years, to come here and join the VMC and i believe i was let go from VMC for personal reasons by manager since per union contract I was supposed to be provided a form which would explain why, and I never did. Manager is very rude and sweeps off people left and right like dirt by letting people go. Not sure – more... how great company like Valley tolerates a manager like this. All I can say DO NOT WORK HERE as long as the manager that has been there for decades is still not retired (which is long overdue). – less

A diverse workplace with motivated individuals
Student Registered Nurse (Former Employee), San Jose, CAMay 15, 2014
Pros: staff, patients
Cons: short breaks, understaffed, condition of equipment
VMC is a diverse place to work with motivated staff members and great patients. The facilities are dated but an extensive remodel is in progress. The staff at VMC makes it a joy to be at work. It is a teaching hospital, and as such the staff care about teaching students and preparing them for their careers.

Good benefits
Medical Technologist (Current Employee), Renton, WAMay 3, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: short breaks, unfair management, stressful, leads, high turn over in workers, job security, unhappy coworkers
This was the worst job I had ever had. The only way j would ever return is if the manager were to retire and the leads would leave. It is a very hostile work environment and I can not believe VA allows them to work that way. If you are looking for life long career, DO NOT work here! Very cut throat!

Great benefits and pay
lab worker (Current Employee), Renton,WAMarch 24, 2014
Pros: sincere physicians who appreciate the fast turn around time of test results.
Cons: physicians and management who belittled staff without repercissions.
In a very productive department in the hospital, I feel that the director has her head in the sand like an Ostrich. The manager is like a bull dog allowed to treat anyone any way that she wants without repercussion. The manager is extremely abusive and belittling, and encourages coworkers to "tattle" on each other on a daily basis, and has shared personal – more... information of employees with other co-workers. I feel that an organization that teaches it's employees to be considerate of diversity, should make sure that the leaders of each department is actually practicing that. – less

The staff was great. Management needs improvement. Overall I was fairly happy there. I learned a great deal from most staff and doctors. My co-workers work easy to work with and lighti-hearted. The hardest part of the job was being understaffed. The most enjoyable part was the patients. I loved working with the patients. That was what the job was all – more... about. – less

Health Assessment RN Jail Health Services (Former Employee), Issaquah and Kent city jailsDecember 30, 2013
Pros: money, on call
Cons: on call as second job go for months with no hours then lots of hours
I loved my job and the coworkers i worked with, i could schedule when i wanted to work at first but after years of doing this the requirements changed and i was unable to hold up my end of the bargain because i worked two jobs and they were 2 1/2 hours apart, my supervisor chose to terminate the position instead of wait until i was available again, – more... i went for a year with no work offers and then worked almost fulltime, but this time it was 3 months without weekends available to work all that was available was week days i couldnt make it for the shifts so...... i am no longer there, now that i am available the job is no longer this sucks because i loved the job, hardest part of the job working day day evening then a 12 hour day shifts on weekends made yo really tired because weekends and friday evenings are the busiest at the jail lots of detoxers to be cared for – less
