    I worked at La Rabida Children's Hospital full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    You'll get to interact daily with physicians during rounds. There are so many opportunities to learn about rare and unusual disease processes and birth defects. You'll have a full hospital experience, in a small clinical setting.

    Cons

    Per department, I find the management a bit unorganized and insensitive. In addition, there is no support system if an employee is feeling harassed or treated poorly by his/her direct manager. The administrative staff gossip about employees inappropriately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a safe place for employees to discuss their concerns, without fear of reproach or retaliatory behavior.

    No Growth, No Incentives

    I worked at La Rabida Children's Hospital

    Pros

    *Pay is decent
    *Flexible Schedules
    *Friendly Working Environment in Most Departments

    Cons

    *Senior Management is unapproachable
    *If you are not a nurse, there is no room for growth
    *Few performance incentives--raises are laughable and managers are reluctant to give even the smallest raise
    *Ran by office politics which can make new employees uncomfortable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Train Human Resources to act like an actual Human Resources department
    *Be more approachable
    *Invest in ALL of the employees; not just nurses
    *Value your employees

    Pros

    La Rabida provides a great work enviornment everyne smiles and speaks to one another. I also really enjoy working with the children.

    Cons

    La Rabida has a very low pay scale. Where one company may pY THE AVERAGE PAYSCALE THEY PAY A LITTLE LESS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to listen to everyone and see what you all can improve to make the company even better because it is already great. Try to find more funds to pay more
