    Nothing, maybe the benefits if you can stand being treated like a slave and worse than a dog

    The managers suck, all of them! Nurses and doctors will treat you like you are nothing, they call evs for everything even to do security job!. They just don’t care about the housekeeping period!

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Rady Children's Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    my coworkers were amazing, I still talk to them and hang out with them. They're some of the greatest people I've ever met. management was sometimes not helpful and could have been a little bit more involved in some issues on the unit but overall were also amazing.

    Cons

    as an LVN the pay wasn't as high as most places in San Diego, and there was no room for negotiation. the benefits were okay, but could be better. as an LVN the opportunity to be apart of the union was available and I took advantage of it for 20 dollars a paycheck which I thought was a little overkill but the RNs pay more so, who am I to complain.
