    I have been working at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I like my co workers. They are the ones I can count on for help and support.

    Cons

    The healthcare benefits are the worst part about working here. I cannot afford to get exams and tests that I need because the deductible is so high. I also put off going to the doctor or filling prescriptions I need because of the high cost. I have been with the company 12 years and if things don't improve with the benefits I will look for other employment. Management is also a joke. Nurses are hired as interim managers and without any interviewing of other candidates they are hired as manages. It's not a fair hiring process

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff during the employee survey. How can a manager that has awful reviews stay in that position year after year?

    I worked at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children full-time

    Pros

    Really able to help the community and offers the opportunity to serve pediatric patients

    Cons

    The Administrative leadership is out of touch with their staff and patients. The CEO is horrible. She talks a good game but has made no improvement during her tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Tenet should really consider replacing their Administrative team. The team lack has a high employee turnover rate and is not held accountable for their actions and poor leadership skills.

    I have been working at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It may look good on your resume when you leave.

    Cons

    I did not fine much of redeeming value there. Much hype about working for a good organization. If you are not one of the elect ( chosen) you spend much of your time watching your back.

    Advice to Management

    open up your eyes

    Pros

    The nursing staff truly cares about the patients and appropriately supporting each other.

    Cons

    The benefits are horrible. Administrative decisions are made without input from staff (so much for "autonomy"!). The only changes ever effected are negative decisions requiring obscure, additional paperwork - to the detriment of patient care. It's time for either unionization and/or merging with Temple.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees.

    I have been working at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I guess you shouldn't complain because at least you have are employed. I have met some wonderful friends over the years. There are some really good doctors at the hospital.

    Cons

    Management is not responsive. Clinical decisions are made by non clinical folks. They don't bother to involve clinical staff in clinical decisions. Benefits are not par with other hospitals in the area. They're not very good. There is no opportunity to upgrade your benefits. There are too many people who have been there too long. Too many managers who have no management skills. Negative management style. No encouragement for staff. Little room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    promotion should be based on skill and not on longevity with the hospital

    Pros

    Small family like, provides a needed service to the community

    Cons

    Pros

    small feel, MDs within group easy to approach and collaborate with for the most part. Loved my patient population

    Cons

    poor leadership, benefits, and management would "disappear." We would received emails multiple times a month stating " …was not longer an employee". strange.

    Advice to Management

    appreciate your nursing staff, specifically NPs. Give them representation in leadership

    I have been working at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children full-time

    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. The job itself is alright but the management is very biased and unconcerned

    I worked at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.
