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.

No comment on this job and how things are run. It is a place to grow but there is some politics. Staff is underpaid for all they do and education background

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
