    I worked at Rady Children's Hospital part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You will learn a lot, teaching hospital so many new opportunities to be exposed to something different daily. Seem to pay well. Team is great. Great way to feel your making a positive impact on lives. Very rewarding.

    Cons

    Felt clicky at times. Can be difficult to advance if not proactive. Benefits went down hill. The unit I worked in desperately needed to be upgraded and seemed there was never enough money or time. So felt dirty and not maintained. It’s very busy.

    I have been working at Rady Children's Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Helping children, good raises, provide tools we need to do our jobs

    Cons

    A lot is expected beyond the work one can do in a typical day- high burnout possibilities

    Advice to Management

    Give more non productive time, more flexibility in work hours, allow more moments to think and create

    I have been working at Rady Children's Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good CNS and education opportunities, fair assignments and management that was previously nurses on the floor so they get it.

    Cons

    Bad pay, terrible scheduling restraints, rotating shifts, crap benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Give us better scheduling options, travellers will get day positions but core staff has to rotate that is not fair. Remove so many of the scheduling requirements, pay us better and give back the pension.

    I worked at Rady Children's Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated, competent professionals. Great variety of cases and services. Friendly doctors. Great 403b plan after (many) years of service. Awesome salad bar.

    Cons

    High management turnover. Extreme workload demands which take away from providing the highest quality care for patients and burns out employees. Above average chronic short staffing. Management does not value its employees. Management does not work on the "hard" work to correct processes and workload issues in order to align with the hospitals' mission statement.

    Advice to Management

    Commit for the long haul and make a difference! Get to know each employee. Strive to correct the real issues, (eg. overworked, burnout), behind low morale.

    I worked at Rady Children's Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Loved working with the patients and talking with the families

    Cons

    The unit was the size of half a football field with 37 beds and I was responsible for all the non medical aspects of patient care. You def got your steps in when you came into work

    Pros

    My Director is awesome, 1 of my departments is amazing.

    Cons

    Authorization/Billing management is awful. Lots of politics, you get promoted even if you don’t know the job. Lots of turnover, unhappy staff.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting your friends. Hire outside, try firing it can clean things up. Don’t be afraid of change. There’s a reason why the smart employees leave.

    Pros

    Helping families, and making a difference in their experience.

    Cons

    Management does not encourage a healthy work environment amongst the team. CNA/PCA are one of the lowest on the totem pole, so it’s work here, or don’t. Cliquish and gossipy staff, management included. Gray areas when it comes to staffing/picking up extra shifts. No written rule. Depends who the charge nurse is that shift. You’ll get bumped in a heartbeat if the next person is “in good”with charge, and if the oncoming wants your spot.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a set, and get rid of the bad seeds. Stop showing favoritism to the staff you communicate with outside of work. Stop reacting off of emotions, (women in management).
