    Love The Place, Management could be better

    Security Services (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsLove working in a Hospital eviornment and helping people. The skills learned are very effective for any job. Build great relationships with staff.

    ConsManagement could be better, if they would compensate department evenly and not give some staff higher pay for same work as others within. Leaders of the hospital would be more visable within the areas (SVP, actually walk their areas and meet thier staff)

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter compensation for people in departments that have higher skill sets. Example, someone with more experance who make less than those who dont.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Revolving door with NO emphasis on patient care

    Charge Nurse (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    Pros--The Patients! I loved caring for the wonderful patients and families. They were the highlight of my shift.
    --Some of the doctors are absolutely amazing

    Cons--Most of the doctors don't know how to care for pediatric patients and are providing the educational foundation to residents who have absolutely no bedside manner.
    --Upper management who don't care about the nurses and have decided to send another CNO packing.
    --Unsafe working conditions.
    --No opportunity for growth OR education
    --Likes to hire new nurses who they don't train very well are expected to care for critically ill patients

    Advice to Senior ManagementTAKE CARE OF YOUR STAFF!! THEY DO ALL OF THE WORK FOR THIS HOSPITAL, YET YOU TREAT THEM THE WORSE!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
