    The veneer of working for a children's hospital wears thin very quickly.

    Pros

    Kids are great, and Connecticut Children's helps make them better

    Cons

    The disengaged senior management team and the directors who are out for one thing - maintaining their ridiculous salaries and jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shed some weight at the top, Marty. You have a serious problem with your management team (directors on up) that ignores the regular outflow of good people who were committed to their roles at CCMC. You should be questioning why that happens and doing something about it. You'll never be a great place to work when the majority of your great people keep leaving.

    Former Employee - Philanthropy in Hartford, CT

    Pros

    Ability to help children and their families

    Cons

    management is consistently rated VERY POORLY by staff, revolving door hiring--they manage by intimidation and fire staff when they attain a certain pay grade--staff is expendable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CCMC will NEVER be a top place to work with current management practices. Top down problems, big time!

  6.  

    A little hospital that wants to be a major player but needs to clear out old management and poor leadership.

    Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Hartford, CT

    Pros

    Working with the kids and families is very satifying but very difficult to feel time to do a good job.

    Cons

    Poor management and leadership team. An absent Board of Directors and problematic good ol boys relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the idea of putting the patients first. Value the nurses and other direct care providers.

    Pros

    Family Centered Care environment. I feel I have autonomy in my position and my decisions are backed by my immediate manager. I love coming to work each and every day.

    Cons

    Not all staff including management exhibit the qualities needed to be a top employer. Better consistency of making sure all management treat staff as appropriate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue to focus on making your leadership team the best it can be and if staff continuously complain about certain managers, please take it seriously.
