    I have been working at CHOC Children's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I love the mission, it's very rewarding working for a pediatric health system. There have been a lot of positive changes and organizational growth over the past few years, a lot more expansion coming. Career development is encouraged, usually easy to move up. Pay and benefits are competitive, free parking. I'm grateful they paid for a large portion of my advanced degree. Lots of autonomy and options to sit on committees/work on special projects. Challenging work, co-workers can rely on each other for help. Innovative organization that promotes growth and development.

    Cons

    Growing rapidly, additional resources provided but hard for them to keep up with all required to support growth. Space capacity is an issue in a few areas but they have been working on acquiring more space.

    Good exposure to pediatrics, coworkers are awesome, they really care about your career advancement (mainly for the hospitals gain)

    Cons

    Pay is below avg, 2/6 supervisors know how to actually lead, can be boring at times (even for overachievers who've already done everything there is to do plus more)

    I worked at CHOC Children's full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent nursing care. The people closest to the patients truly embody the mission/vision/values. Other pediatric services are fantastic, especially child life.

    Cons

    Executive Management bred leaders who have completely lost their way. They focused on ratings without ever noticing what was happening at the level of patient care. These poorly envisioned leaders bought into expensive consultant "gimmicks" and unnatural slogans, without a deeper understanding that staff was already providing amazing family centered care. Dollar and illusory accolade driven, rather than interested in how their patients, families and employees "associates" truly feel about CHOC.

    Pros

    Many great HR individuals working on the front line to support managers and candidates Focus is on hiring new associates who truly understand how to deliver exceptional care and supporting families Hospital is well respected as a pediatric hospital

    I worked at CHOC Children's

    Pros

    The staff is amazing. The volunteers are incredibly helpful. The new building is so beautiful. The care is competent. It's a great place to work or volunteer. If pediatrics is your thing, then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Can get confused with St. Joseph Hospital. They are known for only hiring the best of the best because they are magnet. It is very competitive.
