I have been working at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children part-time (more than an year)

Pros

MY and I stress MY unit is VERY fair and professional. Im not sure If I can say the same about every unit or department. My manager and director are flexible, personable and fair. Most of my coworkers are friendly and caring. I feel very blessed to work here.

Cons

They dont pay enough for the quality of work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

PAY EMPLOYEES WHAT THEY ARE DUE...I really wished St. CHRIS paid a little bit more. If they did they would be the perfect 5 star job!

    I worked at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Unlike most places they hire by qualifications. I have seen a lot of jobs that want you to work temp with no benefits for a year or more with not encouragement that you will work for them full time.

    Cons

    Like the tears of the clown with St Christopher you see and are instructed one thing (caring, honesty, and friendliness) and you get another (back stabbing, uncaring management, and even false accusations to get you out of there.) I have never seen so many leaders with hidden agendas. Quitting my last job to come to St. Christopher was by far the worst decision of my life.

    The sad thing is St. Christopher's will continue to become more successful because the money, is more important than the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp, there is nothing I like about how management works. They talk a good game but their actions causes everyone not in the medical field to spend your time their walking on egg shells

    I have been working at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I like my co workers. They are the ones I can count on for help and support.

    Cons

    The healthcare benefits are the worst part about working here. I cannot afford to get exams and tests that I need because the deductible is so high. I also put off going to the doctor or filling prescriptions I need because of the high cost. I have been with the company 12 years and if things don't improve with the benefits I will look for other employment. Management is also a joke. Nurses are hired as interim managers and without any interviewing of other candidates they are hired as manages. It's not a fair hiring process

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff during the employee survey. How can a manager that has awful reviews stay in that position year after year?
