Pros
  • The new hospital is beautiful and the separate patient and staff hallways were especially conducive to keeping patient care areas quiet (in 3 reviews)

  • Our hospital is moving to a new building and location next year, so it is an exciting time to be with the organization (in 2 reviews)

Cons
  • The nurses complained constantly about being over worked which I found to be a joke (in 3 reviews)

    Pros

    The Drs were great to work for, very understanding, very approachable, great to work with, The hospital itself is good, very caring for their patients which is the most important.

    Cons

    Management at CSF is HORRIBLE to say the least. Micromanaging, overworking their employees, do not EVER take the time to listen, make people hate working there. No opportunity for growth, opportunities are only given to favored people. Every person working there HATES their job!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, be more understanding, stop favoring certain people, and stop contradicting the rules, and just letting your "favored" people get their way.

    Pros

    The only pro is that I worked with some amazing fellow nurses and some great physicians.

    Cons

    If I could give zero, or even negative starts I would. Do you want to work for a children’s hospital that truly puts kids first? Do you hope your experience, expertise, and high quality care will be valued? Do you want to be a part of an organization that can stand by its name? Do you seek employment in a place where nursing leadership earned their positions and are actually effective leaders as opposed to simply “falling” into positions they’re not qualified for? If you seek all of the above, do yourself a favor and look somewhere else! When this organization was Children’s Memorial it was a family-centered environment where high quality care was delivered, and where the teams worked collaboratively to ensure the best possible care for children and their families. When it became Lurie Children’s, it became nothing more than a corporation that cares more about the bottom line then about quality care. What’s worse is that employees are viewed as nothing more than disposable work -horses. Even families notice the change and comment on the lack of caring, and being made to feel like their children are just numbers. It is very sad to see what has happened to this organization, as it went from being a fantastic family-centered institution to a toxic environment hiding behind a rich donor’s name. Not only would I never work for this organization again, I will encourage families who are seeking care for their children to go somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Replace all nursing leadership and stop the unethical manner in which you treat dedicated, compassionate and loyal employees
