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

    Pros

    Sound good on resume but most of the older workers are complaining that the management has destroyed their love for their job. Some department patients are treated like product. it very sad for those that really care.

    Cons

    Non medical management sucks, not much worthy to say, a lot of water cooler gossip, and backstabbing even within management. really can make you feel uncomfortable.
    These are the worst benefits I have ever seen with a hospital. you might as well not have medical insurance at all! it stinks!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of meetings are a facade to the real problem, management disconnect.

    Pros

    great clinical experience. diverse patient population. physicians are caring and compassionate.

    Cons

    upper management often seems more concerned with the bottom line than with actual quality improvement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus more on actual quality improvement and listen more to the needs of employees, house staff, and physicians

    I have been working at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children

    Pros

    small feel, MDs within group easy to approach and collaborate with for the most part. Loved my patient population

    Cons

    poor leadership, benefits, and management would "disappear." We would received emails multiple times a month stating " …was not longer an employee". strange.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    appreciate your nursing staff, specifically NPs. Give them representation in leadership

    I worked at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Easily accessed location. facility is not too large or overwhelming. Has the potential to be a great workplace.

    Cons

    Not as friendly oriented work environment as it used to be. No team cohesiveness. Workers tend to be in it for themselves and not with the patients well being at the forefront.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to employees concerns without retributions for speaking up. Promote more teambuilding instead of favoritism in the workplace.

    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!
