    Pros

    There are many great doctors and staff. Great orientations. Love that it's the only certified pediatric burn hospital around.

    Cons

    There are some specialtites that I would not bring my child to, but there are many that I would. Certain hospitals have a nitch and some you should just go elsewhere.

    Pros

    MY and I stress MY unit is VERY fair and professional. Im not sure If I can say the same about every unit or department. My manager and director are flexible, personable and fair. Most of my coworkers are friendly and caring. I feel very blessed to work here.

    Cons

    They dont pay enough for the quality of work.

    Advice to Management

    PAY EMPLOYEES WHAT THEY ARE DUE...I really wished St. CHRIS paid a little bit more. If they did they would be the perfect 5 star job!

    Pros

    Easily accessed location. facility is not too large or overwhelming. Has the potential to be a great workplace.

    Cons

    Not as friendly oriented work environment as it used to be. No team cohesiveness. Workers tend to be in it for themselves and not with the patients well being at the forefront.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to employees concerns without retributions for speaking up. Promote more teambuilding instead of favoritism in the workplace.

  10. So much potential unrealized

    Pros

    Dedicated staff, rewarding patient population, excellent team to be a member of at the employee level

    Cons

    Too much focus on profit and near quarter earning rather than the big picture for the future. It is a very profitable enterprise that puts too much focus on expense control to maximize profit, such that there is insufficient staff to get the job done. The new construction project appears to be done at the expense of not maintaining the existing facility.

  11. Tears of a clown

    Pros

    Unlike most places they hire by qualifications. I have seen a lot of jobs that want you to work temp with no benefits for a year or more with not encouragement that you will work for them full time.

    Cons

    Like the tears of the clown with St Christopher you see and are instructed one thing (caring, honesty, and friendliness) and you get another (back stabbing, uncaring management, and even false accusations to get you out of there.) I have never seen so many leaders with hidden agendas. Quitting my last job to come to St. Christopher was by far the worst decision of my life.

    The sad thing is St. Christopher's will continue to become more successful because the money, is more important than the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp, there is nothing I like about how management works. They talk a good game but their actions causes everyone not in the medical field to spend your time their walking on egg shells
