    I have been working at CHOC Children's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    CHOC has an incredible culture of care for patients, their families and associates. CHOC fosters a positive, teamwork environment. With the opening of the new tower in 2013, there are numerous clinical opportunities available.

    Cons

    Because we are in a building phase, traffic is sometimes congested, plan your trip to CHOC 15 minutes earlier than scheduled appointment. Associates should use the employee parking shuttle service and avoid crossing at the busy intersections.

    Advice to Management

    Continue great communication strategies.

    I have been working at CHOC Children's full-time

    Pros

    The mission, the people, the culture!! The leadership team is doing a great job in trying to constantly communicate updates, keep us informed, and even ask for our opinions on decisions. Not too common out there. The folks at the top, especially Kim, care about the people and are always trying to do what is best for everyone despite how hard it is to make some decisions. Thank you!

    Cons

    Temporary, but the organization is going through some tough times

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work...please continue to communicate as much as possible. I know how tough these times are and you are having to make tough decisions. We all have a lot of confidence in you in making those decisions. Thank you!

    Pros

    Awesome mission and incredible leaders who have compassion for the organization and its people. Top management, including CEO and COO, care deeply about making CHOC a destination hospital for patients and families, as well as physicians and employees.

    Cons

    The hospital, like countless others locally and across the country, are experiencing tough time and working hard to make adjustments involving difficult decisions that will help the organization thrive in the new health care environment.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up the transparent communications and the rounding - we appreciate it!

    I have been working at CHOC Children's full-time

    Pros

    I love that CHOC continuously provides high-quality services to help our community. I work in the Human Resources Department. We have a great team. The leaders in my department encourage everyone on our team to learn and grow in our profession. Everyone on my team does a pretty great job of trying helping each other out as needed.

    Cons

    My position can be challenging at times but that's one of the main reasons I enjoy working for CHOC. Since the workload is typically high in HR, I recommend our leadership continue to check-in with everyone on a regular basis to ensure we each have the tools/support needed to be successful in our roles.

    Advice to Management

    I always feel comfortable approaching any of the leaders in Human Resources with questions/concerns; I recommend keeping the open door policy.
