I worked at Children's Hospital & Research Center at Oakland full-time

Pros

Good working relations with a handful of inpatient pharmacy staff (a couple of pharmacists and technicians), the medical residents, patients, janitorial staff and some nurses.

Cons

The inpatient pharmacy department is a high-school playground with many bullies/queen-bees. The management is well aware of the work place bullying going on but refuses to do anything. Quite simply put the management panders to the bullies. There are employees in the inpatient pharmacy that are targeted, harassed, bullied, and discriminated against by fellow employees and management rewards them.

Advice to Management

The inpatient pharmacy management and the human resources department (who are well aware of the atrocities going on in the inpatient pharmacy) are part of the problem. They have been given tons of advice but refuse to do anything.

    I worked at Children's Hospital & Research Center at Oakland full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits (not as good recently though, I heard) and flexible working conditions. The people that work there are pretty great, mostly - friendly and have good senses of humor. Plus, you always feel like you're contributing to society and it's hard to be in a bad mood around the kids.

    Cons

    If you are a non-clinical person, you are at the lowest tier of the totem pole and they will give you as much (usually really low-level) work as you will take on. Forget reaching your full potential - there's really limited opportunity for us folks.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize all of your employees to their full potential, try to be more organized and efficient.

    Pros

    Many people have been working 20+ years here for a reason. The pay is great, and the benefits are better than what you would see in 80% of the companies out there.

    Cons

    Communication about future plans could be better. Most information regarding major changes seems to trickle from employee to employee based on what their managers told them.

    Advice to Management

    We know you are committed to the cause, but it would be helpful if employees had more direction on the really important issues that the hospital is facing.
