I have been working at Rady Children's Hospital full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Benefits are good (generous PTO, good health care coverage, 401k and pension). Everyone really cares about helping the children of San Diego and I am proud to say I work here.

Cons

Very limited opportunity for advancement. Executives are not very engaged in good communicaton with the staff. They are a bit out of touch at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create paths for career advancement to help retain some quality employees who otherwise leave for better opportunities.

    Pros

    WONDERFUL physicians and staff to care for your children. If you have children and live in San Diego, this is really THE BEST place to receive healthcare whether it be for minor cold/flu symptomns or serious, life threatening diseases! RCHSD really cares about each patient and family. The medical benefits for employees are great. Probably the only PLUS I can give this place.

    Cons

    Each position is expected to do the work of about 5-7 individuals. Every department is completely understaffed and the responsibility each staff member is given is exponentially more than one person could ever handle in the best circumstances. When staffing levels fluctatuate due to medical leaves or other reasons, additional staff is NEVER brought in to help take up the slack and the ridiculous workload of your co-worker(s) out on maternity leave, medical leave or if anyone quits or is terminated, YOU are expected to "suck it up." However, you will not receive additional compensation or even a THANK YOU from management for working yourself to death. No one is permitted to take time off without pay and you are swiftly written up and chastised if you exceed your sick days (EVEN WITH A DOCTOR'S NOTE). Management does not provide any support, training or even counseling when you ask for help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Major restructuring needs to be done in the departments for administrative workloads and remaining employees should not have to absorb the ridiculous workloads of employees who are on medical, maternity leave or quit or fired. Temporary assistance should be brought in immediately from an outside source or direct placements should be streamlined. Managing Directors needs training on FMLA and employee privacy laws.

    I have been working at Rady Children's Hospital full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great
    The grateful patient families
    Generous paid time off policy
    Continuing education is partially reimbursed by the Organization

    Cons

    Ineffective Senior Leadership Team
    Very low employee morale from numerous lay-offs (note: lay-offs aren't called "lay-offs" in this Organization. They are called "right-sizing" ...but employees are well aware they are in all actuality, lay-offs."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to host "employee forums", please allow more than a half hour. Especially if the forums are going to get off track and not have time for questions.
    Please mean it when you state that there is an Open Door Policy. It feels like lip-service.
