    I have been working at Rady Children's Hospital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people who all support each other. Good pay, many benefit options, and generous time off.

    Cons

    Money is always tight so systems are sometimes lacking and the furniture and office equipment is older. Note this is a non-profit hospital however, who never turns away a child.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the communication, thank you for listening to employees when change is needed.

    Management let's you make your own schedule as long as you work the minimum days required.

    The hospital could use a renovation (elevator near the cafeteria, paint scheme, cafeteria)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

      Doesn't Recommend

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

      Pros

      Wasn't there long enough to find any.

      Cons

      Ridiculously inefficient training with expectation you will "hit the job running." I couldn't get out of there fast enough.

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

      Pros

      The community is great. Had a great experience and built a familial connection with my co-workers and the management teams.

      Cons

      Benefits could be better. Pay is limited and Minimal increases per year. A limited budget really sustains complete and delimited productivity. Altogether an amazing team of professionals working together to make a brighter future for children!

      Advice to Management

      Aim for the bottom up approach, actually take you subordinates advice, and apply it. Improve on even the simplest of imperfections.

        I worked at Rady Children's Hospital full-time for more than 10 years

        Pros

        Salary was great. PD LEAVE ACCRUAL GREAT FOR >10 years

        Cons

        Upper management who has never done your job makes recommendations or puts process in place w/o asking the folks who are proficient in doing the job, for their input. Sometimes the persons who do the job know more than their management.

        Advice to Management

        Get a grip and learn from your staff.....then the staff may respect you, not for the skills you haven’t don’t have but the work ethic you should have.
