    I have been working at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children full-time

    Pros

    Dedicated staff, rewarding patient population, excellent team to be a member of at the employee level

    Cons

    Too much focus on profit and near quarter earning rather than the big picture for the future. It is a very profitable enterprise that puts too much focus on expense control to maximize profit, such that there is insufficient staff to get the job done. The new construction project appears to be done at the expense of not maintaining the existing facility.

    I have been working at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I like my co workers. They are the ones I can count on for help and support.

    Cons

    The healthcare benefits are the worst part about working here. I cannot afford to get exams and tests that I need because the deductible is so high. I also put off going to the doctor or filling prescriptions I need because of the high cost. I have been with the company 12 years and if things don't improve with the benefits I will look for other employment. Management is also a joke. Nurses are hired as interim managers and without any interviewing of other candidates they are hired as manages. It's not a fair hiring process

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff during the employee survey. How can a manager that has awful reviews stay in that position year after year?

    I have been working at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children

    Pros

    small feel, MDs within group easy to approach and collaborate with for the most part. Loved my patient population

    Cons

    poor leadership, benefits, and management would "disappear." We would received emails multiple times a month stating " …was not longer an employee". strange.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    appreciate your nursing staff, specifically NPs. Give them representation in leadership

    Pros

    MY and I stress MY unit is VERY fair and professional. Im not sure If I can say the same about every unit or department. My manager and director are flexible, personable and fair. Most of my coworkers are friendly and caring. I feel very blessed to work here.

    Cons

    They dont pay enough for the quality of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PAY EMPLOYEES WHAT THEY ARE DUE...I really wished St. CHRIS paid a little bit more. If they did they would be the perfect 5 star job!
