Ok place to work
Housekeeper (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 12, 2018
I do not like the hours for the shift I work. This job should be a Monday-Friday job. The hospital needs a weekend crew to come in. Communication needs to be in high demand
Pros
Two weekends off
Cons
Weekends

Overall SRAL is an great place to begin your career as nurse, and if you decide to stay its also room to advance.
Registered Nurse Level II/Charge Nurse (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 15, 2018
Overall SRAL is an great place to begin your career as nurse, and if you decide to stay its also have room to advance. The team work is good, and this spine floor you can learn a little more compared to other floors. However, its a little more physical & less critical thinking and nursings skills can get lost. My biggest dislike is that nursing care gets pushed back for therapy. Yes therapy is important, however, If the patients didn't need nursing care then they will be in outpatient & that's what the facility fail to realize. SRAL is nice place to work, big on educating, and will give you that confidence you need as a new grad.
Pros
Benefits, Collaboration, Good work environment
Cons
Slow pace, Parking is cost too much, need more rehab aides

Typical physical therapy work
Physical Therapist (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 1, 2018
It is typical physical therapy work with some drawbacks and some benefits. The new building has wonderful views of Lake Michigan and patient rooms are nice and big. The gyms are a bit confusing because different equipment are on different floors and parallel bars are hard to find.
Pros
Beautiful views
Cons
Lack of common equipment
