    I have been working at Children's Hospital Colorado full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a non-profit children's hospital, rated in the top 10 in the nation year after year by US News and World Report. The culture there is every job is meaningful because every employee is contributing to healing kids. Good pay and benefits, in this day and age, both for full-time and 1/2 time. Many patients grow up and work there. Many former employees come back after moving to other hospitals or industry, thus the people who work there want to work there. Vitality Wellness Program give employees the opportunity to reduce their annual health insurance contribution byv $600.

    Cons

    Non-profits don't pay as much as for-profits and industry. Leadership can be slow to respond to employee's desires, but they usually do or at least find a compromise in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Good pay for Anschutz campus, but losing the competitive edge in salaries due to slow market rate adjustments, causing increased difficulty in recruiting excellent talent. Need to modernize and increase remote working options for non-clinical administrative, IT, data, and regulatory positions. Industry standards for these roles have changed and a significant amount of working remotely is now expected by many non-clinical disciplines, again making it difficult to compete with other hospitals.

    I have been working at Children's Hospital Colorado full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a wonderful to work with children and know you are making a difference. Pay is reasonable and benefits are good. Most employees are friendly and work very hard to take care of the Patients and Family. I love being a part of what Childrens stands for.

    Cons

    Since I have worked here, I have seen ongoing communication issues between and within certain departments; there is little room for mistake and people seem quick to escalate situations up the chain of command instead of trying to problem solve or simply talk to parties involved.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage Managers to team build within departments and encourage working partnerships between employees. Weekly check ins on team morale would be very good.
    Treat employees with the same respect regardless of their role; everyone is working hard toward a common goal of helping Patients.
    QSRS feels like a weapon sometimes.
    Discourage blame culture and emphasize assuming best intent with peers.

    I worked at Children's Hospital Colorado full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    plenty of lateral move options, switch departments, participate in committees, orient nursing students or new employees, attend educational workshops. CHCO has a huge volume of opportunity for those interested. For those who want to just show up do their jobs and not seek out the next level, that's ok too, just be sure to tell management.

    Cons

    It's a huge hospital system which can make you feel like a cog in a huge wheel but, for those who have ambition, it's a great organization to grow within.

    Advice to Management

    Be available to your direct reports, reserve open door hours to really hear what your frontline staff are going through, especially during respiratory season.

    Thank you for your feedback. I think that is a great idea to reserve open door times and will suggest at future management meetings.

    I have been working at Children's Hospital Colorado full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management is accommodating and nice to work with. The pay is better than many area hospitals ( still not great but better).

    Cons

    Very cliquey place to work on the units. Nurses are rude to each other unless they're friends.
    Nursing staff has a very self righteous attitude all around. No team feel. Insurance is expensive and not very good.
