Current Employee - Non-Clinical Knowledge Worker in Denver, CO
Current Employee - Non-Clinical Knowledge Worker in Denver, CO

I have been working at Children's Hospital Colorado

Pros

You can feel proud that you work to support the care of sick children. Pay is competitive.

Cons

Benefits are average. Management practices are old -- seem to come from the '60s or '70s. No private, quiet workspace for knowledge workers. Poor employee review system. Modern technology is used for administration, but not used well -- behind modern practices. Poor communication between management and employees, and between clinical and non-clinical staff. Lack of willingness to affect change. Very bureaucratic. Campus somewhat isolated. Lack of parking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve communication. Reduce bureaucracy, embrace managed change. Create modern environment conducive to productivity of modern knowledge worker. Increase respect given to non-clinical staff.

    Great Care, Research Infrastructure is Seriously Lacking

    Current Employee - Research Associate in Denver, CO
    Current Employee - Research Associate in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Children's Hospital Colorado

    Pros

    The care provided to the patients is beyond compare. Children's lives are saved on a daily basis.

    Cons

    People are promoted to management who have no skills for it. Gossip is tolerated and even encouraged. Toxic managers and directors are common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Policies are created with no plans or resources to implement or enforce. Good intentions will not save the company from poor internal practices with research.

    I worked at Children's Hospital Colorado

    Pros

    The care given to the children is top notch. The opportunity to be part of the care is such a delight.

    Cons

    Working with sick kids can make some people mean. The overall atmosphere is eat or be eaten.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to clean house and get rid of the trouble makers, especially those who do not recognize the benefit of being a teaching hospital.
