Teamwork and supportive atmosphere
Northwestern Memorial is where I worked for 11 years. There is team spirit and team work. Another RN is always available to help. More senior nurses are always there to help or give advice. The needed materials are always available. It is a good workplace with great co-workers

Everyone at NM loves working there, and stays for years. While the pay is not the most competitive, the staff is generally happy. Management encourages a healthy work life balance!

Residents control everything. Therefore, you never actually get to manage the ventilator. If you are looking for autonomy, this is not the place to work.

I believe NM tries to very hard to create a work environment that is pleasing to employees. However, sometimes department managers can hinder that atmosphere, so it just depends on who your manager is.

Northwestern is the best.
I did my clinicals at the convenient care in bloomingdale and got hired immediately after. I loved working there so much and had to leave due to moving to a different state. My coworkers and supervisors were great and the benefits were too. Wish I didn't leave!

Management is so unfair and don’t care for employees
Is alright but not people don’t stay too long. The best employees are the once management try to give all the right work and Often reliable. Can’t check

Northwestern is a great company to work for. It has everything that you'd want. They have great insurance, give back to the community, and is very big on education. Great place to work.

It was a pleasure working with dedicated team of people.
In a few short months with the support of the management and a dedicated work of the finance team we were able to revive the department and set procedures and policies in place for our successors to follow.

Great Company, awful team members
I loved the company, many great benefits. It was too bad that there was so much bullying and negativity in my department and I wasn't able to transfer locations because I wasn't there long enough. I would go back to the company in a heartbeat, but never back to the department I worked for.
Pros
Location, hours, benefits
Cons
toxic management and coworkers

Awesome place to grow.
I love working for Northwestern. I am blessed to have this job with everything that is going on and my goal is to work my way up the corporate ladder and move to a different department. I have no complaints. Its easy to sit and bash a company but first take a look within. If you don't like a place do something about it and leave. This hospital gives everyone a chance and the resouurces to do what is best for them so it's up to you to take advantage of it.

Good place to work if you don't want to advance
If you're looking for a place to advance from within this is no longer the company for you. you're better off finding experience elsewhere and returning for appropriate placement and wages

No room for advancement and pay poorly
I was once given a penny raise at this company which was a slap in the face. I tried to apply to different internal dept. to no avail I believe my manager at the time who was fired less than 6 months after she fired me was intentionally holding me back. I have an accounting degree but was working in a call center department/operator service for 4 years at NMH & never reached a $2 raised. Istatred

Love this place
Best place to work. Great team. Compensated well, respected, rewarded and encouraged along the way and given every tool needed to be successful. The only reason I didn't stay is because I had a full-time job and I was missing my kids also working part-time. Wish I could have stayed here fulltime and left the other job.

Easy Job
Very simple and easy work. Upper management is alot more helpful than actual supervisors (they play too much favoritism). Co-workers are nice for the most part.
