    Great place to work

    I have been working at Nemours Foundation (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work with excellent nurses and doctors who give exceptional care. Company is stable, with excellent benefits and cares about their employees. They strongly encourage their nurses to continually expand their knowledge and education. They are finally paying adequate incentives for working above and beyond your work schedule!
     Director of Nursing is an excellent leader. She is very supportive, listens to her staff and acts accordingly.
    New hospital addition is beautiful with all the updated gadgets!!

    Cons

    Can be very busy...which may be a pro or con. When its busy and busting at the seams, its occasionally difficult to find adequate staff which is stressful. Although, in most of these cases, management (and Administration!) pitches in and help where they can.
    Weekend cafeteria food is pitiful.
    More walking in the new hospital addition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening and being involved in your staff!!

    I worked at Nemours Foundation full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Free coffee, high wages, safe neighborhood location, on-site fitness center, and Zumba classes make it attractive to potential employees.

    Cons

    Departmental leadership abuses, communication gaps between management and staff, low morale, fear of retaliation, fear consequences of minor errors, inadequate training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No one wants mistakes to be made on kids; I understand that. But it is unprofessional to allow a department director verbally abuse and ridicule his/her employees in front of others. If you want to boost morale, keep an eye on those who are supposed to be role models. The CEO from up north should send someone down Undercover Boss style and see what goes on when supervisors think no one is paying attention.

    Pros

    PAY and benefits are the only upside to working here.

    Cons

    In experienced staffing, the standards of behavior are not practiced by management or doctors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the complaints from all the work place reviews given in the hospital and all the ones on here as well as other employee review sites. Consider that they may be true instead of brushing them off as disgruntled employees. We ALL can not be wrong about what we say.

    Pros

    Good money. Awesome working with the kids. The staff was pretty fun and the hospital was really nice.

    Cons

    Awful management with no backbone. They did not have the employees back on issues and sided with the upper management over things that should have been resolved within the department.

    I worked at Nemours Foundation full-time

    Pros

    The benefits package and salaries are very good. The training programs are computerized and organized electronically.

    Cons

    It is well known that the organization lacks ethics. Several managers have gotten their positions through questionable ways (friends, previous business deals, etc.), and they are inept, confused, and ineffective. Some managers have unstable behaviors and completely get away with it. Without supervisors who really manage and make plans, employees put up with managers' whims and last-minute requests constantly. Doing the bare minimum and taking the easy way out is a lifestyle there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The true stories about Nemours are starting to leak out into the community, and your reputation is slipping. Stop spending recklessly and thinking only of money. It's a pediatric hospital - think about the patients, families, and staff. Take a closer look at some of the managers, and dig a bit deeper to see what they are REALLY doing. Stop the nonsense with the Standards of Behavior, since they are twisted and abused at the higher levels. Clean up your act.
