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".

The mission to serve children in the community is special. It permeates everything about the place and makes it a wonderful place to work. -People are nice, lots of great physician engagement and leadership. -Applications teams were really good, with lots of high performers who were enabled to do things.
-Little bit disorganized -Not tons of room for growth/advancement -Deadweight folks tend to hang around until they retireRady Children's Hospital Response2y

Excellent coworkers, very dedicated to helping children and their families
Management, if you are not “homegrown “ Rady, your career opportunities are limited. It definitely not what you know but who you know.1

Great feeling to know that your hard work is going to helping children.
Was only a contractor employee, the management needs to teach contractor employees protocol so that they are better equipped with the understanding of the company and the proper steps.

The mission of Rady Children's Hospital is near and dear to my heart. 'To restore, sustain and enhance the health and developmental potential of children through excellence in care, education, research and advocacy.' The organization lives and breathes this mission. The leadership team knows that people are the key to fulfilling this commitment to the community and are highly committed to ensuring that employee are engaged. Competitive salaries, regular market equity reviews, success sharing bonuses, longevity increases, annual reviews, regular gifts, employee feedback surveys, competitive benefits, anniversary gifts and paid leave to name a few!
There is so much work to be done to serve the children of Southern California and with low, single digit profit margins, Rady Children's Hospital like many healthcare providers is challenged to have sufficient funds to offer all of the much needed programs. We must often make tough choices about which of the many high priority initiatives we able to pursue.

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.
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.1

To help the children & to work at the best SD pediatric hospital.
Staff are afraid to come out of nursing station, pt's assaulting staff, Dr's not returning staff calls/pages in timely manner...the list goes on...5

It is nice to be working to help improve the lives of sick children.
The list is so long the managers are very unprofessional. I have never worked in a place where management has been allowed to verbally abuse the staff in such an extensive manner and HR does nothing to stop it even when they witness it. Management has elevated their status and worth so much higher than their employees that they care nothing about the feedback given to them about lack of communication coming from the top down. It was by far the worse place I have ever worked. It was like being in High School and if you weren’t in with the popular kids bulling the other employees than you didn’t receive fair reviews, fair work assignments. Mr. Rady donated so much money to this children’s hospital they really had the opportunity to do great things instead they spend hand over fist on redoing things because they didn’t manage a project or goal correctly because they refuse to listen to the people who know their jobs because the general consensus is that if you’re not in management your opinions are not valued.13

Benefits are good (generous PTO, good health care coverage, 401k and pension). Everyone really cares about helping the children of San Diego and I am proud to say I work here.
Very limited opportunity for advancement. Executives are not very engaged in good communicaton with the staff. They are a bit out of touch at times.2
