Certified Medical Technologist (AMT) (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 17, 2018
Cook county health and hospital system helped me to have a good experience, specially working on different type of laboratory analyzers. Working at midnight was challenging while trying balance with family responsibilities. Resource and human management at the laboratory label need a lot of improvement. It is known that the Cook County has a budget problem. the management should work on wastage of resources.
Cons
no career development opportunities.

Cook County Hospital
Network lead (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 23, 2018
Cook County Hospital, which opened 1857, was used as a teaching hospital by Rush Medical School until the Civil War, when it was transitioned to an army hospital. After the war, it continued its purpose as a center for medical education and founded the first medical internship in the country in 1866.

By the 1900s, the best surgeons and physicians in Chicago volunteered their services at the hospital, which was rebuilt in 1916.

Work Environment not favorable due to Political control
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 21, 2018
The County Hospital is run by the Cook County Board. So any and all decisions must go through them for everything. All ideas on marketing, products and events are worked over by the board thus leaving no room for the actual contractor to participate first hand. I was able to help enroll over 80% New Members and raise the total patient care status from 13,000 to 45,000 in 6 months.
Pros
Working with the Public both vendors and Patients
Cons
No control over many decisions

Great Benefits and Pay
Clerk V (Current Employee) –  Oak Forest, ILSeptember 17, 2018
Work is busy and the pay is higher than most competitors. In the clinic I work at, all staff work together for the good of the patients. There is a lot to do so something the work load can be overwhelming

Productive at times but strong government union environment.
Call Center Manager (Former Employee) –  Oak Forest, ILJune 30, 2018
A typical day at work entailed reviewing staff performance and reports. Preparing for union caucus meetings; KPI reviews with Executive Directors; Meetings with subordinate leadership team; HR review of staff time cards; distribution of workflow; queue monitoring. The most difficult part of the job was meeting with the union. Union didn't support performance goals or staff accountability, making it difficult the ensure best service to the client, The most enjoyable part of the job was the beautiful view of the hospital grounds, as it was located near a forest preserve.
Pros
Great location; good pay for union staff; Comp time for management since OT pay is not an option
Cons
Strong gov't union involvement, little autonomy to drive success when unions don't support staff accountability.

The job is what you make what make of it, give your best God will reward you for the rest.
Law Enforcement (Internal Affairs) (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 13, 2018
Each day brings new experiences and challenges but you must be a lover of people to work at Cook County hospital. You must raise your self above the people who don't recognize your skills and push forward. You will be eventually recognized as new management arrives and improves things. You must be forgiving people will attack you verbally with games people play.
You might even get suspended for doing the right thing but hold on God will defend your character and if you can stand the heat in the kitchen you might end up being a manager. Now you can successfully change things!
Pros
Teamwork, new managers
Cons
Vindictive coworkers and managers, unfair hearings.

fast paced but friendly environment
Full-Time Contracted Pharmacist (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 12, 2017
this is a great place to work build camraderie with coworkers. there is high workload but working together makes the burden seem less burdensome. management is definitely not the best and often times questions don't seem to get answered. a lack of strong leadership is apparent at times. the system used is also not the best. it can be confusing and inefficient that can be very frustrating as well. overall you will not feel overly stressed as long as you pull your own weight.
Pros
sufficient breaks, sufficient pay, good work culture
Cons
lack of leadership in management
