    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.

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

    Pros

    My specific floor manager is amazing and accommodating. She fully supports us. We are able to self schedule, but with the requirement we work every other weekend

    Cons

    Very poor continuing education for nurses - $300 every 2 years. Laughable amount considering a conference fee itself is $600-800. Upper management make huge bonuses each year - while the nurses have to unionize and fight hard for a 2% raise..

    Advice to Management

    Increase continuing education money
    Increase raises for your nurses to be more than 2% annually
    Have a more realistic view of what is really going on in the hospital

    Pros

    Serving the children. All children get top notch care. Makes you feel good about being a part of that.

    Cons

    Compensation stinks. You only hear the negative, never the positive. You learn quickly to keep your mouth shut and not question anything or you get in trouble!

    Advice to Management

    Show us we are valued and listen!!
