    I worked at Rady Children's Hospital (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Rady's has a genuine passion to help children and their families. They want to invest in research that will not only help heal children but to make their treatments less invasive.

    Cons

    Old IT and methods for expense reports and A/P. Poor or no communication among departments. Processes are often confused or not known/shared. No accountability for management who don't bother to communicate with their staff.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on better execution of processes. Provide employees the opportunity to help make their teams (and managers) work better together. Managers should be evaluated anonymously by their staff. That's how you find the pain points and fix them. Then you can reduce your high turn over in those known areas. Listen, then act. Don't just log those opinions. You are only as good as your team is happy. Altruism without authentic appreciation and respect from management can only go so far.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. The job is busy, and pretty straight-forward, and is nice if you enjoy the freedom of working independently, but also as a team. 3 days a week is full time leaving you with lots of extra free time.

    Cons

    No real room for career growth opportunities; certifications, bonuses, or incentives. Not enough pay to live on full time. Physically and emotionally demanding, long days.

    Advice to Management

    Offer incentives to expand skills, and the chance to make more money, as well as feel stimulated professionally.

    Cons

    Too much politics, lack of transparency, not enough cooperation

    Instill a culture where people are focused on doing what is right for the organization rather than what is good for their group or department. Actively encourage the removal of politics. Encourage people to admit failure so they can grow.
