Great place to begin your career
Mental Health Counselor (Current Employee) – Berwyn, IL – June 12, 2018
MacNeal hospital is a supportive and friendly place to begin your healthcare career. They offer on the job training, as well as, access to educational lectures occasionally. They even offer tuition assistance for employees who want to go back to school.
However, there are very few opportunities for growth or advancement within certain departments. You typically get a small raise at the end of each year,which is nice, but there is little room to grow professionally inside the company. Also, even if you are a full time employee you are not always guaranteed 40 hours a week. Sometimes the census gets low on the units so they'll cancel staff. If you're canceled you can choose to use your pto to cover that day, or go unpaid. This leaves you with either a smaller pay check or very limited pto for personal use. If your unlucky enough to not have any pto you are left with no choice but to lose money.
Friendly and supportive coworkers, flexibility with hours, and great place to learn
Hours are not always guaranteed even for full time
