    I worked at Connecticut Children's Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work being done on behalf of the Children of Connecticut at this hospital is second to none. The staff is incredibly dedicated and is passionate about protecting the well-being and health of children. From clinical trials to facilities management, everyone I came into contact with was 100% invested in the mission of this hospital. For the time I was fortunate enough to work there, I felt a part of a select group of individuals that had a "higher calling" and it was a great feeling.

    Cons

    Some internal politics got in the way of some of the work being performed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to embrace the people that are doing the work of this fine hospital and keep fighting for every single dime that will fund the good work and allow the important services provided by this hospital to continue unimpeded.

    I worked at Connecticut Children's Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The work itself is rewarding. Kids are great! There is still great group of employees, though they are leaving in record numbers.

    Cons

    Management. Period. CCMC is so obsessed with obtaining magnet status and they are losing all of their most experienced and knowledgeable employees because of it. I’ve never seen such a hemorrhage of staff. If my children required emergency or critical care, I would not trust CCMC.

    Advice to Management

    Awards and certifications are meaningless if you’re doing things for the wrong reasons. They mean nothing if you step all over your staff in order to obtain them. This will compromise patient safety and someone will suffer for your mistakes.
