    Pros

    Everyone pulls together to help when things get crazy. Nursing and ancillary staff truly care about our patients and families. High level of skill and most of the physicians encourage nursing input. Pay is ok.

    Cons

    Teaching hospital that has varying degrees of "new" doctor skills and attitude. Large disconnect between staff and higher level management. Large layoffs a few years ago has made everyone question their job security thereby creating and maintaining an environment of fear and doubt. Constant changes to cater to customer satisfaction has led to staff feeling very unsupported.

    Advice to Management

    While excellent customer service must be maintained, staff needs to feel supported and not "thrown under the bus" when there are issues. Every customer is not right and every issue is not the staffs fault. Upper management must somehow become more approachable. On the whole, staff now views them as money hungry ivory tower residents that care little for the minions that have gotten them where they are. When people question the security of the job they give so very much of themselves to, they will not respect those with power over them. Health care, especially at a children's hospital, is hard on the spirit. Staff needs gratitude, more time off and more benefits to offset the huge drain on them.

    Pros

    There arena ton of great employees here that wok here because they truly care for the cause and well being of the community

    Cons

    Management is destroying this beautiful hospital. It starts from the very top. Senior management need to rethink with their hearts not their wallets. I would not be surprised if this hospital goes under review by a newspaper or a tv news program for bad management of a children's hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you should think about how you treat your employees and how that treatment can affect the lives they care for at thehospital. Patient care is a top priority for everyone but the moral of the employees are so low these days that it has affected and continue to affect patient care.
