Poor leadership, cut throat culture among staff, place isn't clean
Technician (Current Employee) – Greenbrae – September 9, 2018
I've never seen a hospital that was so dirty. Restrooms are filthy, even the public ones. Floors remain dirty for days. Rumor has it that there are many infections. They need to clean the place. As for my job, horrible management is not uncommon in this hospital. Managers/Directors are not knowledgable nor do they possess the qualities that make for good leadership. They will lie to you. Beware. I am looking elsewhere.

poor management is overwhelmingly thick here. management needs to go to valid management classes that promote a less stressful working environment. management is disengaged with the worker bees. decisions are made for departments without including the proper sme's. and they have no clue how to be efficient nor effective. great people in and of theirselves, just the environment needs a ITIL foundation class or 10 and some lean methodologies deployed. turn over rate is high in some areas while others just hunker down and deal with the current environment.
Rapid change pushes the envelope and requires excellence

Driven environment. Functions at a much higher level than a small hospital. Seeks to excel and does so. Rapid growth in many ways and somewhat difficult keeping up with the changes, though always for the better. Challenging but productive.
Respiratory Care Practitioner (Former Employee) – Greenbrae, CA – January 26, 2018
Almost everyday was very busy and constantly challenging. The hospital had gone under several new management situations, and needed a great many updates, medical equipment, advanced learning issues, every changing requirements of each of us. At time a very large patient or working load, since the work was responded patience crisis situations that could and would change your prioritizes almost every minute. It was a great job that was truly challenging and I would still want to work there if it wasn't for health reasons.
A growing and challenging work enviroment
A great deal of stress, physically, emotionally and intellectually

You feel like you're surrounded by friends. Learning is inevitable and most enjoyable, helping you stay sharp and feel competent. The management is extremely friendly, supportive, and encouraging. High acuity may contribute to a higher difficulty, but the every-day pleasure of working in a great team makes everything worthwhile.

Marin General is a very busy place. It won't make you rich but it dose make you feel good that you're in the business of saving lives.If I have to do it again, I may stay for 2 years instead of almost 6.
IT Support (Current Employee) – Marin County, CA – October 15, 2017
The most enjoyable part of the job was making a difference everyday. Although things were ran very poorly, I had the ability to contribute and ensure everything I was a part of had a successful outcome and helped those who needed it.
Making a difference everyday
Missed lunches, missed breaks, and poor management

Surgical Technologist (Current Employee) – Greenbrae, CA – July 28, 2017
There are perks why I decided to come and work here, but eventually it's a lot of discord between staff and management. Staff had been here a long time but management keeps on changing with new rules and changes. We brought issues to the physicians for they understand the underlying cause. But management, good luck, they put it in paper and stays in the paper. Just talk and no action. I don't think I can stay here longer.
RN Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Greenbrae, CA – July 26, 2017
Worked as an OR nurse here for 16 years and no support from management to check staff competency. Our director is a psychiatric nurse and has no background in the OR which I find it ironic. The culture is physician driven and staff's voice mostly muffled. Got a few more years before I retire and management just come and go.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Larkspur, CA – May 24, 2017
I would go to the float pool to find what floor i would work on.I'd go tot the floor and get report from the cna on duty. Then I'd get vital signs and chart them. i'd pass trays and collect them. I'd chart the intakes and outputs.I didn't get a long with my boss because of my health issues. We worked as a family on the floors and helped everyone. I enjoyed going to the different floors.
Being able to go where ever I wanted to go in the hospital
