Terrible
Administrative & Project Assistant (Former Employee) –  Oakland, CAJanuary 29, 2019
This place is a nightmare. To sum it all up, very unprofessional atmosphere, EXTREMELY poor management. Pay is great, if you like to work in complete chaos, no systems in place, no training and no accountability. This place needs a management makeover.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Everything else

Eligibility Clerk (Current Employee) –  Oakland, CAJanuary 12, 2019
Working the front desk at a medical clinic can be stressfull but having good coworkers helps a lot. There is always something to keep you busy from running for the pt's needs to going above and beyond for the doctors.

Great place to get depressed in
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  Oakland, CADecember 21, 2018
Poverty, entitlement, verbal, emotional abuse and punitive leaders are all common threads of this medical center.
The turnover of administration is what the problem is. Unstable environment. Cronism with leadership. Leaders who never had a management course in their lives. Don’t know how to relate to nurses, lie all the time and respond “Did I say that? No, not me, never!”
Then they violate all the regulations when the state is here. GI clinic was found to have feces on instruments in sterile packaging. And the nurse leader never thought of inspecting them.
Not a good place for a nurse. Med surg nurses get the worst reputation with SDU a close runner up. This is the leaderships problem. One nurse leader left and now she is back and everyone hopes she will leave.
Pros
Can keep you in shape
Cons
Leadership in nursing

Activities Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Alameda, CAOctober 23, 2018
I work as an activity coord in sub-acute. If you aren't a nurse, you're SOL. They are very cliquey and rude. I do the same thing every day. My supervisor is more concerned to be friends with nurses rather than help other workers.
Pros
Health insurance is free
Cons
Supervisor isn't very helpful

Above average!
Emergency Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  Oakland, CAJuly 17, 2018
After working here for many years I can conclusively state, it's the best place I've ever worked. It's an amazing family here with BY FAR the most interesting clientel in terms of both personality and pathophysiology.

The rub is management. They won't/don't support you. The nurse next to you will, your boss won't. So dont' count on it. Pay is lower than private hospitals but competitive. If you can deal with all that, you'll love it here.
Pros
Autonomy!
Cons
Can't trust your boss.

This organization takes dysfunction to another level. Management changes and there is a lack of training. Benefits are excellent but salary levels are horrible.

Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) –  Oakland, CAMay 31, 2018
Alameda Health Systems is a great company to work for and to grow. I learned to work as a team and how to make decisions in tough situations. The culture is very diverse. The most enjoyable part of the job is the patients, talking and communicating with them.
