    Phoenix Children's Hospital is one of the 10 largest children's hospitals in the nation!

    Clinical Nurse II (Former Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsEmphasis on family centered care throughout the facility. Offers some of the most creative workplaces for cross training into various units. The facility is growing with new opportunities to deliver optimal healthcare.

    ConsSome areas to work in are more clicky with groups that keep to themselves instead of a team atmosphere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage everyone to extend themselves to have the same level of training and expertise within all the areas. Do not hold people back.

    Volunteer Experience

    Volunteer (Former Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsThe Volunteer Services personnel are wonderful to work with as are many of the staff. It is a joy and privilege to work with the children and their families. The hospital setting is inviting to children and helps allay their fears. Special TV stations are established for patients of various ages so they can watch cartoons, Disney movies, or something for the adolescent.

    ConsStaff is often over worked with limited opportunity for assistance on many floors. Lateral violence is present in some areas, cafeteria is closed from 7m to 10pm which is often during the time when parents can step away to take a break and eat something or just unwind from the emotional strain they are under. HR is slow to hire and often does not update hiring status for months at a time or loses applicants information.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOptimize HR system, stand firm on NO lateral violence with a 0 tolerance policy, hire more nurses/new grads, keep hospital cafeteria open 24 hours.

    A wonderful place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsI cant go on about how much I love this place. The staff was great and management worked hard to make the place great for workers and patients.

    ConsParking was ridiculous but we were expanding so that may have changed.
    Communication between departments was lacking but I believe that is due to growing pains.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the doctors and nurses. They are the ones on the front lines. Keep doing such a great job of taking care of the kids.....

    Fun Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI worked in the communications department for a year. I loved my coworkers and enjoyed working in a true team environment. The others in my department had lunch together everyday, and we were often joined by others from other departments. It had a good community environment. I also liked the employee events and incentives, like the employee health campaign where you could win prizes for tracking your daily activity. Working at a children's hospital is personally rewarding.

    ConsIt is very difficult to get a raise or be promoted at PCH. For me it was very disheartening and I felt very unappreciated by the director of my department.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure your employees know they are valued, needed and appreciated. Give more promotions or create new positions for great employees. Keep up the employee health and giving campaigns, and do more to show appreciation.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
