  • 27.Dec 2019
  • Employee

Company Culture

competitive more than team building

Support from management

The clients are number one and I receive the support I need to do my job.

Teamwork

Team building was encouraged

Freedom to work independently

Employees were encouraged and trusted to work independently

Internal Communication

Great communication

Gender Equality

The women were always respected and treated fairly to my knowleadge

Attitude towards older colleagues

I saw that younger staff even if a recent hire were given advances over older staff. Be watchful when you turn 45.

Career Development

Only for a select few.

Overall compensation for your work

It is what it should be for the area.

Office / Work Environment

No problems with this

Environmental Friendliness

Very environmental conscience

Work-Life Balance

Encouraged to work over-time. Treated cold after having called in for sickness. I had FMLA for migraines but, told to take an aspirin and come in by supervisor.

Company Image

I enjoy the clients I work with and the medical center does great research. The currently rank 3rd in the nation.

Handicapped Accessibility

No problem at all

Workplace Safety

Safety is encouraged and maintained

Challenging Work

about what is expected in a medical center.

Inclusive / Diverse

There was a clear culture line and very few minorities in leadership positions. There is few to none nurses of color working in certain areas.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Managers and supervisors need to be evaluated anonymously by the staff they supervise.

What I like about the company

The most positive personal experience is being a part of helping children and families during one of the most stressful events of their life. The pride I feel when I tell a person that I work for the medical center and they smile and often tell their personal experience with the medical center. They always give praise and thanks for doing the work I do.

What I dislike about the company

Children's Hospital Medical Center need to revamp their diversity training.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management should be more on their employees side rather than encouraging submissiveness of employees

What I like about the company

Coworkers are very passionate about caring for the patients.

What I dislike about the company

Attendance policies. Charging for parking. Unorganized shuttle for off-site parking. Poor work-life balance (expect a lot of work due to high employee turnover).
