The most frustrating and disappointing place I have ever worked.

I worked at Children's Hospital Colorado

Pros

If altruism and a sense of doing something good for your community is important to you in a career then The Children's Hospital is an excellent place to work. Additionally, the hospital does do a good job promoting a work life balance for all of it's employees.

Cons

Senior management does a poor job of understanding IT. Internal promotion is almost non-existent. Seniority is valued to highly; I worked with dozens of people who were unqualified to perform their jobs and had held the same position for ten or more years. The hiring practices in senior management are questionable at best. On more than one occasion an unqualified senior manager was replaced with a less qualified senior manager.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to take advice from your staff. The people who work day to day with your patients and support structure often have a much better idea of what they need to improve their work environment and the service to your patience than you do.

    I worked at Children's Hospital Colorado full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mission, and care at all acuity levels is terrific - I would not take my child anywhere else.

    Passionate and talented clinical at nearly every level, across all service lines.

    Strong identity that the community loves.

    Cons

    Non-clinical executive management is rife with favoritism and unqualified leaders; very little communication down the ranks while worker bees' teams have been severely cut and managers expected to facilitate twice the amount of work with little guidance on strategy from above.

    Morale among non-clinical managent is at an all-time low. Gossip mill.

    Leadership at odds, not a cohesive unti.

    While the clinical care is progressive, the business end is akin to early 90s practices.
