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".

Prestige of working for the hospital
Benefits are not great, you have to predict the future of holidays. Meaning you accrue PTO and sick leave all together. You are forced to use your hours when sick, but also for holidays like Labor Day, they don’t keep them separate so if you get sick before Labor Day and have 0 hours you get reprimanded for not having saved enough hours when you had no choice but to use them. Also you don’t get annual pay raises they use a really out dated scale to determine pay.3

Great leadership and job stability.
Extremely low wages verses other healthcare organizations, overworked and underpaid is an understatement. Low employee morale in all depts. No employee appreciation whatsoever. Radys requires you to temp for nearly a year before transitioning to core employee. Hugh employee turnover rate due to overwork and under pay/ under appreciated staff. Dead end job no options for growth.2

Being able to care for children and their families. Ability to gain experience and learn new skills.
Awful management = Low morale Team leaders and managers contribute to toxic work environment among co-workers. Non-competitive pay when compared with other organizations. Pay is not commensurate with work demands and (toxic) work environment.

Mission is great. Pleasant co-workers.
No career growth opportunities within organization. They'll give you more responsibilities to make you feel there is 'growth' but no pay raise to compensate the added duties. Manager will give you a 'promotion' but tell you its a lateral move so there's no pay raise. Major micromanaging and pointless weekly, daily huddles.2
