    I worked at Christiana Care as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place to develop your research skills and expand your knowledge base. Their Value Institute is second to none and the higher level staff are supportive of beginning and mid level researchers.

    Cons

    Actually none that are related to the Value Institute themselves but rather HR can be a bit of pain. They have lot's of control over hiring but usually if the executive staff is on board then you are set.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Tuition assistance, flexible for students, pay is higher then most entry level positions, increased communication and computer skills, yearly increase in pay, bonuses.

    Management is hard to find, under staffed in areas, hard remove bad employees, parking is hard to find, hospital inside appears dated, allowing visitors at anytime seems unsafe and rude to patients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please take the lower level employees into consideration before making changes. Offer more opportunities for students in school.

    I have been working at Christiana Care full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    work life balance, deadlines are negotiable, management won't bother you. There are many internal opportunities to transfer to other roles

    Cons

    If you come into the organization underpaid you will continue to be underpaid during your time at Christiana. There is no mentor ship program and many of the senior people in IT have outdated skills and they are desperately trying to hang on to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate people of their skills and the value of their skills in the marketplace not on the number of years within the organization. Develop a mentor program.

    Pros

    Great personal time off, benefits, and pay. Good experience working with people from all backgrounds and experience levels.

    Cons

    Depending on your job class - limited mobility. People like it there so they dont create openings by leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize systems in place to recognize the hard work that staff perform. Once people develop new skill sets find ways to utilize them or they will feel underappreciated.

    I have been working at Christiana Care full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Great 403B plan, room for advancement, decent wages, teamwork, local community active, very good hospital system offering many services to DE and the TriState area.

    Cons

    No Flex hours. The "7" minute rule on signing in to start work doesn't apply to benefit the employee. The employee can sign in 7 minutes prior to the start of work; however, if the employee is 1 minute late, it activates an accurance to go on employee record. Streamlining staff to stay within "The Budget". Work-Life Balance is not as healthy as advertised. Work outweighs personal life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more staff to meet the needs of the department. Stop the rumor mills and employee bullying between staff.

    Current Employee - Registered Nurse

    I have been working at Christiana Care full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Tuition Incentive Program is initiated the moment one is employed.

    Cons

    1) Hardly any meal breaks
    2) Pay scale is insulting
    3) Job expectations way too much
    4) Nurse-to-patient ratio is too high; unsafe to care for patients
    5) Parking for employees is horrible. It will make you late for shift. Security closes off the closer parking lot which forces employees to park in the furthest lot and walk much further
    6) Not much support from supervisors
    7) Too many cliques/small groups of people who 'brown nose' and throws others 'under the bus'--cut throat
    8) Cafeteria is EXPENSIVE
    9) Vending machines are pricey and sometimes steal your money
    10) Many patients and their family members are rude and ungrateful when the nurse is clearly doing their all for them--tired of us nurses getting cursed out and reported for no reason
    11) Benefits are not the greatest

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support the staff both directly and indirectly
