Friendly but Flawed

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Denver, CO

ProsMostly friendly. Decisions are consensus driven and respectful. Pay is pretty good. Recent management replacement may be sign that organization is moving in right direction if not there yet. Easy to be proud of job that (indirectly) helps sick children. Communication about changes in organization and general news is pretty good.

ConsOverall, management is friendly and respectful, but very lacking in basic management and project management training (feedback, delegation, purpose of goals, time management, etc.). Some managers are even toxic. Fear of change stands in the way of progress. Consensus driven decisions can sometimes slow things down. Organization is not always honest with itself about how to improve. Lack of real offices means knowledge work suffers. Parking is bad but may improve soon.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend time learning management and project management skills. Be honest about how the organization works, or improvement isn't possible.

    Systems Network Engineer (Former Employee) Denver, CO

    I worked at The Children's Hospital


    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… 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… Advice to Senior Management: Learn to take advice from your staff.
