      Working with children and doing everything you can to help.

      Many employees are not happy with reorganization in PMHI and it shows as they express to anyone who will listen which is unfortunate.

      To communicate changes before the actually change to key team members.

      I worked at Children's Hospital Colorado full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Pay and helping children are great. Not all departments are horrible.

      Cons

      Condescending and absentee management that has no desire to hold negative people accountable. Working in blood collections with the management team was a joke. Very cliquey, weak minded and supportive of a hostile environment. Accountability for the previously terminated employees from other industries goes by management waist side. Following standards goes ignored due to a lack of training program. Blood Banking department...

      Advice to Management

      Take the time to Listen to your leads and make it a point to communicate. Don’t turn a blind eye to avoid confrontation to those that are detrimental to the mission and values. Perhaps also provide feedback to staff instead of blindsided conversations that come out of nowhere and do nothing constructive.
