Great patient care - secretive leadership

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Patients are really the center of the work and passion to do well. Sharing of best practices and tools has been challenging with other leaders. Leaders also can be slow to act and foster a “not my job” attitude where collaboration is lacking.

Good and sad place to work you see a lot and easy work. Benefits are okay and very difficult to see your patients at their worst or receive their results

Great docs, understaffed

Great docs, decent benefits, understaffed and very top heavy. Would be nice place if management would be staff departments properly. Unfortunately, turn over is high in some depts.

Great hospital to work for

I enjoyed working at this location as a research assistant. The hospital works tirelessly to support patients and goes above and beyond to give them patients quality care and resources.

Hostile Working Environment

I heard good things about the City of Hope, so once I finally got hired, I thought I would be welcomed warmly by my co-workers; however, I was shocked at how horrible some of the veteran employees treated their co-workers, especially the new ones.

Productive and fun

It gave me a lot of experience working for the medical field along with being able to learn about the different divisions of the hospital and meet other people.

Great learning opportunities

I learned so much about what it takes to work in social work in the oncology field. There was so much value in watch the other social workers do their thing. The team was super supportive and welcoming.

Fun but not challenging

City of Hope overall was a great place to work . My office however was located in the bungalows and it was extremely old and ugly definitely wasn’t the best building the inside of city of Hope and the surrounding buildings are way nicer. Wish I was able to be given more opportunities for growth

Heavy lifting

Did not pay enough for hard labor, this job requires reliable commute. Though the job provides uniform on day one, there’s no employee friendly break room nor restrooms. Job does not provide water nor food to employees..

Amini DAC

1st year was nice but you realize how unstructured it is dealing with 2 other departments can be overwhelming. Old timer staff act like they're still in high school. Management don't care and why they have so much turn overs.


Free lunch

Great hospital but overwhelming when understaffed

The hardest part about working here is when where understaffed (which is quite often) but if we were always well staffed, I would easily give it a 5*.

Great stable employment

This job is a great place for a steady paycheck. the company pays well and acknowledges hard work each departments assists with. It was a high stress job, high volume calls employment, but one can find a rhythm quite easily and adapt.


free lunches from time to time


lunches seem short

Fast paced environment with lots of room for growth but very little support offered from con workers and management.

What is the best part of working at the company?The wages and benefits were fair.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Lack of support from management and coworkers. You are expected to be cross trained in several departments in relation to scheduling however you are not always given the information and tools to do that. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Very click ish. If you are friends or family with management you will be just fine but if not there is definitely preferential treatment going on in some departments. What is a typical day like for you at the company?Busy but that’s a good thing. The thing that makes it difficult is high school type drama going on between coworkers and lack of support from leadership.

Rewarding Care

At the bottom of the food chain, COH is a great place to work, as long as you don’t look up. As healthcare evolves, so do changes to LOS and to some extent quality of care. COH is no exception. The colleagues are great. Middle management does the best with what they got. Great place to work, just expect change, just like you would anywhere else.
