  2. "Good for clinical, not office admin"

    I have been working at Children's Hospital Los Angeles

    Pros

    Mission and doing work that matters.

    Cons

    First time managers who are new to leadership roles always play favorites. Most have worked here for eons so you get what you get. Managers even routinely cancel/skip team meetings so communication intentionally suffers and impacts those on the outside. Again, lots of favoritism and questionable actions eg allowing specific employees to get overtime or work from home. See other reviewers, it’s not just one observation.

    I worked at Children's Hospital Los Angeles full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly and down to earth, easy access to managers and directors. Great compensation and health benefits.

    Cons

    A bit mismanaged, disorganized, no clear set expectations. Poor communication. A bit antiquated in terms of working remotely/flexibly (even if job allows it, managers do not).

    I have been working at Children's Hospital Los Angeles part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The teamwork, collaboration, and culture of this hospital is something that is so positive, it can immediately be felt to anyone who steps foot in the hospital. People work in hospitals all over LA county who may pay higher salaries, but then they come to CHLA and don't leave which says a lot about the culture.

    Cons

    CHLA is constantly changing and adapting to improve itself, so keeping up with all of the changes can prove to be difficult at times.

    I worked at Children's Hospital Los Angeles full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    CHLA was a wonderfully supportive place to work. Everyone, from housekeeping to administration, fosters an environment of equality and teamwork. As a RN I always felt supported in any of my endeavors, questions, or concerns. Any issues were immediately addressed. Families were encouraged to be as actively involved in their child's care as possible, and were invited daily on rounds with the physicians, RNs, pharmacists, and other specialty teams. It truly was a fantastic place to work!

    Cons

    Pay is not as competitive as it should be, hopefully administration will work on this!
