Ok place to work, good benefits, but still a work in progress
EEG Technologist (Current Employee) – Mountain View, CA – September 13, 2018
Ok place to work, good benefits, but still a work in progress. The EEG dept. has some issues. No medical director and no epileptologist. EEG is attached to ECG so you'll find yourself doing a lot of ECGs.
People are great but managers don’t care about there workers

It’s all about how much money the company can make Company doesn’t care about there employees they work you to the ground .your supervisor are not professional they talk to your coworkers about you saying they’re not gonna give you a good recommendation Supervisors give you attitude if you call in sick or if you can do overtime.too much gossip from supervisors .there are always getting new directors or CEOs they waste a lot of money on repairing things that do not need fixing .

Foolish and irresponsible budget cuts marginal to insufficient staffing people being denied vacation on a routine basis due to insufficient staffing. Some cuts result in an unsafe work environment. They like to use Per Diem as full timers so they don't owe benifits. Some departments better than others
Clinical Nurse II (Current Employee) – Los Gatos, CA – August 6, 2017
An amazing place to be if you are a nurse. Do not get me wrong, this hospital is very strict and conservative but it is for a good reason. Patient safety and satisfaction is the heart of this hospital, and it's very rewarding to practice nursing in this hospital. The pay is very competitive, one of the highest in the US. Benefits and retirement is great as well. A place you can spend the rest of you career and get the opportunity to grow. Not so much politics compared to other hospitals in the bay area. It's either you deserve it or you don't. Very straight forward, they compensate your performance and excellence at work. It's not who you know, it's how you work.

As the saying goes, "people don't leave jobs because of the job, they leave because of poor management." The Director of Clinical Engineering had a pension for "Lying" , which put the staff in tough predicaments and having to cover up the lies. The hospital itself is a great place to work.
Friendly knowledgeable staff, great benefits, good pay
Program Therapist (Current Employee) – Los Gatos, CA – June 7, 2017
El Camino hires the best and expects high quality work. I have worked both in the inpatient and outpatient setting and there is consistency amongst the organization. If you're a hard worker you will be successful here.
Staff RN (Current Employee) – Mountain View, CA – February 19, 2017
EL CAMINO by far epitomizes how the Nurses should be treated. El Camino understands that there is a life outside the nursing profession and accommodates whenever possible each individual's needs. The nurses are all super professionals, congenial, team-players, and become family. In my 34 years as a nurse, El Camino tops the list for the BEST workplace for nurses !!!!!
Great Cafeteria food, Excellent Benefits and Bonuses
One must get accustomed to the diversity in customs, expectations, and reactions from the clientele.
I cannot say a bad thing about the benefits. What's better than free right?
I had the opportunity to work with people from all departments. Everyone is into collaboration and doing the right thing. However, sometimes politics and funding get in the way of doing the right thing. My co-workers were the best and they were always very collaborative and a joy to work with.
The hardest thing about the job is not getting enough support for professional development and the most enjoyable part was the collaborative culture of the staff.
Great place to work, great coworkers, good morale.
Registered Nurse - Transitional Care Unit (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – May 20, 2015
I worked 12 hour shifts from 7PM - 7AM. It was a very busy unit. Once you made initial rounds, then you start "putting out the fires", so to speak. Everyone worked independently but were always available if you needed help. Learned a lot about high tech monitoring, we became a certified chest pain center as well as a stroke center. The education for that was daunting but management would do anything to help you get it done by scheduled deadlines - they were very supportive. For myself, the hardest part of the job was time management during the last 1-2 hours of the shift. That's always been a weak point of mine, but I got better at it. Honestly the most enjoyable part of the job was just being there. You always have frighteningly busy nights which could wreak havoc on morale and your ability to problem solve properly. Our shift got along very well. No matter how difficult the night was, at some point, we made time to laugh about any number of things. It was amazing to note that just those few minutes (VERY few minutes) that we took to do that had a very positive impact on how we were able to end our shift. Living in Florida now, it's too bad the commute is so far. El Camino Hospital remains my favorite out of all of the places I have worked over my career.
The coworkers, only 3 12-hour shifts/week, great benefits and management support.
Certified Nurse Assistant (Current Employee) – Mountain View, CA – July 17, 2014
Working with the professionals at El Camino Hospital has been one of the best work experiences since my time spent with Disney. The team spirit among my peers and others from the many departments all share the same mission goal, the best quality care we can provide for our patients. The work is hard and requires the best to create and maintain the highest level of quality care, the many teams I have the privilege of working with, from my fellow CNA's to the RN's and managers make my day as an enjoyable day possible. There isn't anything easy about acute patient care, we are dependent upon for every task under taken, I look forward to meeting these tasks with my skill and experience so that whatever is happening is carried out flawlessly and effortlessly as possible.
The level of pay, and healthcare benefits provided
We can be so busy, that the day has passed by without any time for a break.
Laboratory Tech Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – July 6, 2012
El Camino has great staff, but does not have any room for career growth. They do have good tuition reimbursement but trying to move into another position once you have completed your education is impossible. Not very bright of them to invest thousands of dollars in their employees and then have them leave because they won't give them an opportunity to move into higher positions...
Clinical RN II, Step 4, CCU / ICU (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – June 25, 2012
I enjoyed working at EL Camino on nights in the ICU/CCU for over a year, but I did not like the Days - Break RN position I returned to after I traveled home to NC for 6 months. I didn't like working days, and I felt tired because I couldn't sleep well at night. I was used to nights. Before I left, I was on the list for balloon pump training. When I came back, I was no longer on the list for balloon pump training, and no night positions were available.
