    I have been working at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, public transportation, nice co-workers, interdisciplinary work style, team oriented, patient satisfaction is priority, measured outcomes, convenient location near mall, near CalTrain, shuttles for parking and train station users, variety of places to eat/coffee, great health programs,quality clinicians, providers truly care about patients, bend over backwards to help patients, executives provide lots of community opportunities, expanding in size, buildings, and capacity. Great teachers to interns/students.

    Cons

    Very busy clinics, patients are more complex but the resources to be more efficient/effective/meet high quality standards are limited: staff, time, long patient wait list, very administrative heavy. Limited program flexibility (no home visiting programs, or training programs for nurse practitioners/clinical nurse specialists to take on more roles). Very difficult organization to get into, you pretty much have to know someone or trained here as a student.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more assistant managers, nurses, and administrative staff. Recruit more extra-help/per diem/relief positions.

    Pros

    Great organization. Innovative, cutting edge medical achievements are pursued consistently, compensation is on par with the rest of the bay area.

    Cons

    Small hospital where people are employed for a significant amount of time, opportunity for growth may be limited by tenor.

    I have been working at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Committed, highly qualified and professional staff and practitioners, excellent mission and values, challenging environment full of opportunities to learn and improve skills. Rewarding to work with each patient and family, remembering everyone is first and foremost a human being.

    Cons

    Increased move toward streamlining can improve processes but can run risk of overburdening staff in day-to-day and, by extension, staff can lose sight of overarching mission and the actual relationsip with patient and families gets lost in the checklists.

    I have been working at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital full-time (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 Management

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

    Pros

    Working at LPCH allows you to interact with a diverse group of patients/parents. It is amazing to see children being so optimistic even if they have serious illnesses. The nursing staff is great and give excellent care.

    Cons

    There is lack of support from Executive Leadership to middle management and this causes a lot of distrust and animosity throughout the departments.

    Advice to Management

    It is better to support your management team to get positive results.
