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

    Pros

    The mission is powerful and the organization has good community support. Most people there are very dedicated to helping children and families, however there is a real lack of strategy and leadership.

    Cons

    Weak leadership. A few bad apples can ruin the whole bunch. Some behavior within the organization is sophomoric. sTaff and leadership behave badly, egos abound with few controls. A very weak board of directors. There is no strategic plan. The politics within the organization I would compare to a bad television reality show. Leaders have no idea how to lead people and groups.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up! Take some leadership training and get a strategic plan. Leave your ego at the door and invest some time and resources into knowing employees and invest in the tools that allow them to do their jobs.

    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.
