    Pros

    Good benefits and good raises

    Cons

    No loyalty and no growth

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your staff, communicate, learn there names, work together and utilize the present team. We want to be here.
    Let them know your plans and include them.

    My job was never an issue with me here! I learned a lot and enjoyed coming to work. I met great people who are now friends. Ive enjoyed helping these families and being part of a strong team these past +9 yrs. .Recently there has been a change..
    You have hard working employees/ real people who gave there all, day in and day out!! Who truly care about the children of the community. New dept leadership has taken over and is changing everything. Don't get me wrong, change is good when it's positive and when it's done with dignity. Half of the original staff has left or is leaving!!! Why? What does that tell you? Think about it...

    It's such a shame that all could not work together to create, a yet even stronger and better team.

    I enjoyed my position there until my last few weeks

    Cons

    Dealing with my last few weeks there

    If the department wants to let go an employee, than maybe some truth would be better rather than dragging out an issue for weeks. Other than that I really did love my job there until my last few weeks there

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

    Pros

    It’s an okay place to work, and highly regarded within the San Diego community. The kids are wonderful and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    People are really nice because they’re all walking on eggshells. All employees are easily offended. Do your job (what we tell you to do), keep your mouth shut, and hope you don’t hurt someone’s feelings. It’s the only pediatric game in town, otherwise, there’d be a better option for care and employment.

    Advice to Management

    Hold employees accountable for their skill level, and not just how “nice” they are. Hold people who are very rude accountable. Hold all employees to the same expectations.

    Pros

    Making a difference in a child's life

    Cons

    No support from management when a department is suffering; low staff. Management blames "bad attitudes" on employee because they are so stressed on being overworked. They will bully you to leave or take FMLA. Horrible supervisors and no team work within any department. They promote unqualified people to higher positions making work even more difficult for those already overworked. The politics suck here. No room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all of management. Stop promoting unqualified people. Stop threatening jobs and bullying employees.
