Lack of consistency and accountability
Senior Director (Current Employee) –  Duarte, CAJuly 13, 2018
Not everyone is held to the same standards. Too many priorities. Not enough follow through. Very complex organization to navigate. Some leaders - who are seen as superstars are not held to the same rules.

unknown (Former Employee) –  DuarteJuly 7, 2018
like most you have RNS, AIDS that work hard then you have the regular lazy one's. RN's sit around talking and making raciest jokes about the aids, other RN's. Patients are not #1 no nothing like the commercials....

Not secure
Managing Director (Current Employee) –  Community Center, CAJune 29, 2018
Currently, a lot of instability. No transparency
No staff support making it very difficult to work and produce
Training is spotty and work environment is toxic. They bring in outside consultants who have no idea of the grass root level work

Processes are very long and confusing and people are quick to judge.

Excelent job!
Administrative Secretary I (Former Employee) –  Duarte, CAMay 5, 2018
I was in charge of transcribing dictations from eight physicians in the Hematology Department, which consisted of listening to their voice recorded notes and input them into the system. I also answer phone calls that were transferred to me by the general switchboard, which included writing messages to physicians and speak with patients that requested prescription refills, as well and the pharmacies that filled out their prescriptions to authorize or denied prescriptions.
I enjoyed working at the Cty Of Hope.
Pros
Amazing organization

Difficult Environment
Organizational Development Consultant (Current Employee) –  Duarte, CAApril 2, 2018
The management team takes no accountability. It's never their fault if something goes wrong. There is very little support, it is a sink or swim culture. If you currently like your job, keep it or apply at another healthcare organization where they have a better reputation for how they treat their employees.

Rapidly growing it's name by franchising on a local, and regional scale, but the focus is always on the patient. As they say; "There is always hope..."

Toxic work environment
Nurse Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Mission Hills, CAMarch 26, 2018
Co workers are toxic. This is out at their outpatient infusion centers. Down and dirty co workers that set you up to fail. Management is untrained and unorganized. Not able to train in a consistent manner. Having a subordinate that didn't get the job, train the supervisor who did is not a good situation, set up to fail for sure. The hardest part of my job was being trained properly by a disgruntled co worker, not being allowed to supervise. I have never worked in such a negative, toxic work environment. The Mission Hills site was the most unhappy place to try and work. Stressful like I have never experienced before. If they keep the present employees that they currently have this site will go under and close. They are hard, unpleasant, unhappy employees. They do not reflect the City of Hope mission and value which is a shame. You cannot directly call the office and more than half the time it takes 3 - 4 calls to get to speak to a nurse. I just can't say enough. I am grateful I no longer work there, it is a blessing.
Pros
Can't think of one thing
Cons
Everything you can think of

Experience While Working at City of Hope
Guest Service Information Clerk (Current Employee) –  Duarte, CAMarch 24, 2018
It is a fast paced environment. Always assisting patients & families while attending COH. I have learned that the employees at City of Hope must have the compassion this is needed when working with our patients. The hardest part of the job is welcoming a patient at COH for the first time and seeing the fear on their face. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping everyone coming through our hospital and making their visit as welcoming as possible.
Pros
Being productive and providing a good patient experience.
Cons
It could be stressful at times.

Senior HIM Application Analyst (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 22, 2018
This was not a great environment to be in because consultants were not properly managed for the most part. Some managers did better than others but as time grew by and the work got more intense, stress levels grew high and courtesy went down.
Pros
Great weather, great staff
Cons
Consulting management lacked leadership
