What people are saying about Rady Children's Hospital
4 months ago
Saint Peter's University Hospital
Recently resigned from a job at Rady Children's Hospital, working on the PICU as a registered nurse with my BSN and CCRN. Appalled at the exit meeting & unprofessionalism of the manager & HR department who has yet to return my calls. Misled and redirected from goals I advocated for after numerous meetings with manager & supervisor. I was told "you abused the hospital, were a waste of the department's funding, and you should have thought about your career goals before coming to this hospital".

Great people to work with. Job satisfaction in regards to population.
Poor salary. Bad raise when going from intern to licensed clinician.

Rady Children's has a great mission and also great people. It's grown over the years I've been here and so have the career opportunities. I've been supported over that time and the organization has invested in my development. I would recommend Rady Children's to anyone who wants to make a difference and be in a positive place to work.
It is a non-profit organization so we always have to be on a conservative spending policy.

The medical staff is awesome.
The company stresses the CARES model when you're first hired, (Collaborative, Accountable, Respectful, Excellent, Safe) but in my former department they did little to implement such procedures. Innovation is not only shunned, but if you do try to improve functionality, savings to the company, and most importantly patient and caregiver service, you get a target on your back. My boss was an arrogant expletive who put his pride before the best interests of the company. Any fresh ideas to benefit patients and the company was met with scorn, and roadblocks were quickly thrown in front of you. Ideas would be mocked and turned around on you with anger and intimidation tactics and you'd essentially be told you’re stupid. This certain manager should be grateful for an employee's positive attitude and contributions, and want to show off to coworkers what a great pick they made in hiring them, but they instead act the complete opposite; they feel threatened like they are being outed for the idiots they are. I could see why others in my department would do the least amount of work possible and act like drones that just show up for a paycheck. The people who do show a great work ethic will have up to four people's work and their mistakes piled upon them and then get blamed if things don't go perfectly well. Even if things did go extremely well, you'd receive zero kudos. I would often shake my head in disbelief on how some of my coworkers were hired. Some of them should have been fired or dumped off on another department, but instead they’re promoted! The managers should be fired for being so incredibly stupid for throwing these burdens upon the company and the coworkers. Instead you’re told to suck it up and take up the slack. Unbelievable. Don't count on the department's director to do anything; they'll just side with the manager while putting a black mark against your name. In fact both of them were hired into their positions simply because of longevity, and definitely not competence and personality. Our director was nothing but impervious and ignorant toward departmental functions, yet in their defense, they were rarely present to oversee our learn the operation. Glad I could finally get out of that department!4

Great people who all support each other. Good pay, many benefit options, and generous time off.
Money is always tight so systems are sometimes lacking and the furniture and office equipment is older. Note this is a non-profit hospital however, who never turns away a child.13Rady Children's Hospital Response4y
