I have been working at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Working with some of the best healthcare providers in a fast pace environment both challenges you as well as rewarding you with the knowledge you do make a difference

Cons

Management has changed. Rather than family, it seems it is more business than caring.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look hard at how the employees are treated. They are not second class. Remember that their opinions should count

    I have been working at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The hospital attracts and hires top-notch talent. Working in a renowned research facility is great and the atmosphere is intellectually challenging. Salaries are very fair and benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    But being in a management role at LPCH is hard. Managers are held accountable for improving engagement scores, quality management systems, etc., but there are many processes and procedures that are very time consuming, cumbersome, or just plain don't work. Managers must spend too much of their expensive time trying to get simple things done. There is a big emphasis on process improvement in the clinical areas, but no one is looking at the HR systems, purchasing procedures, etc. -- the smaller things that waste a lot of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at the non-clinical processes and procedures. A lot of expensive management time is being wasted wrestling with filling out numerous on-line forms to get the simplest thing done.
