    I have been working at Rady Children's Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with children and working with others who have a drive and compassion for working with children.

    Cons

    Not compensated appropriately. Senior leadership is horrible, completely out of touch with the staff and treat them like dirt. High management turnover in the units. They try to nickel and dime their employees and benefits get worse with each contract, not better.

    Advice to Management

    Stop understaffing the units and compensate your nurses for all the amazing, hard work they do. Consider all the time they spend there, away from their homes and families.

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

    Pros

    Good pay for members of the union. Working with children and seeing that you make a difference.

    Cons

    High turnover with the MA's in the clinic. Management can be more about politics than patient care.

    Advice to Management

    NO manager/director should be in charge of 14+ areas. That doesn't even make sense. There is no way you can be en tune with your employees and patient needs with covering so many departments. Listen to your employees when they are concerned about patient care.

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

    Pros

    The clinicians and support staff do everything in their power to provided excellent care to the children of San Diego county. This is an excellent place to receive care.

    Cons

    The management across the board is completely out of touch with the realities of patient care, patient scheduling, and management. They purposefully understaff and overwork support staff which causes burn out and heavy turnover. This in turn results in clinicians who are not well supported and also over worked and burned out.

    Advice to Management

    Spend the money upfront in supporting your employees in training and retention instead of wasting it on high turnover and employee dissatisfaction.

    There is always a means to make somethings better and to understand something multiple aspects of what happens in the hospital is always encouraged.

    May be short staffed at times, but there are plenty of resources and knowledge of how things should be done in order to complete the work assigned.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Management is very knowledgeable about the hospital and its practices. They are willing to help you as long as you are willing to grow yourself.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility and continuously learning experience. Allows room to grow and apply creative thinking in nonprofit organization. Pleasant work environment. Hospital really tried to focus in the area in which an employee is trying to strive on and make sure everyone is content where they are currently at.

    Cons

    No job stability. Grant funded positions are a hit-miss scenario. You can start off with a job for a year and be struggling to maintain or renew the position due to budget/insufficient funds due to grants.
