I have been working at CHOC Children's as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

The hospital has excellent doctors, nurses and other clinicians and is a very good place for children to be treated.

Cons

If you are an HR professional and are considering a job at CHOC, you need to know that recently there has been a mass exodus of HR Directors and senior staff members due to the poor leadership at the top. The environment is very negative and management is always looking at who to blame rather than figuring out a solution. The recruitment dept within HR cares more about paperwork than they do candidates and the hiring managers they serve. There are policies in place that are very rigid that don't make sense from a customer service standpoint. As a recruiter, you have to spend so much time processing paperwork that you barely have time to recruit. The management is not open to new ideas or out of the box thinking either. When you walk in the door in the morning you will barely get a "hello" from anyone because people are so unhappy they don't bother with pleasantries anymore.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn a new style of management that supports your staff rather than stifles them. Re-think some of your outdated policies and procedures that are bogging down your staff. Do an investigation to find out why so many directors, managers and staff in HR are leaving.

    I have been working at CHOC Children's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    CHOC has absolutely the best clinical professionals around. I'm very fortunate to live in a community that has specialist like these to care for the children of Orange County.

    Cons

    The reputation you create as a manager is critical with resources such as glassdoor, indeed reviews; rate my boss etc. now at the fingertips of future potential high performing employees. The recruitment market is very competitive and expected to get worse with the retirement of baby boomers. The high performing employee your organization desperately needs is not only researching the company but also their future supervisor. It is very important to develop the managers in your organization that will manage to the culture your company wants to embrace. But more importantly is holding managers accountable who are not contributing to the company culture. Otherwise, the existing high performers will leave for better supervisors regardless of the company’s reputation, pay, benefits and future potential candidates will be working for the competitor.
