    Wonderful team environment! Slightly below average pay for the San Diego area.

    Pros

    Lot of people who work at Rady are good people and want to do the right thing. Great physicians. Lots of Rady spirit and team building stuff. Mostly all good.

    Very tight with money and funding. HR is not always helpful or supportive and actually can be a hindrance, if you're a leader. Some employees are very insecure but mostly, good colleagues to work with. Very hard to move up career-wise.

    Awful management

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You feel really good about helping provide patients with great care

    Cons

    Where do I begin... the management is awful. If you're a productive and hard-working employee, you will get taken advantage of very quickly. Management will bully you and assign way too much work in order to pick up the slack of all the low-performing employees in your department. They will also undermine you in their annual performance reviews for not doing enough even if you're doing the work of 2-3 employees. There is also zero room for career growth, and that's why the best employees leave because no one in their right mind will stay at an organization just to stay in the same place with no opportunity for a promotion. They won't solve any real issues, and instead will bully you and threaten disciplinary action any time you have a good idea or suggestion. This results in the best employees with great ideas turning into an empty shell of a human being until they become quiet worker bees who never speak up. The level of gossip is insane at this organization. Doctors/therapists will go out of their way to spread gossip about the lowest-level staff members just because, and it creates a very toxic atmosphere. Management cannot handle real conflicts at all. Most of the staff are women, and there are many instances of creepy dads or physically aggressive parents who threaten the safety and well-being of our staff members, and management will not do a thing to address the problem because, hey, they're a paying customer and money trumps employee safety at this organization. I know writing this review won't change a thing, but I finally know why "shady rady" came to be.
