RN (Current Employee) – Aurora, CO – March 22, 2017
I really enjoyed working at Children's Hospital Colorado but its only a temporary/contracted assignment. I worked twelve hour shifts which I loved. I got to see many different types of surgeries and got to experience many different types of specialties including neuro, plastics, ENT, orthopedics, opthmology, burn case etc. Teamwork was superb here, everyone was always willing to lend a helping hand. Overall it was an amazing first experience.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Aurora, CO – March 17, 2017
Most people who stay at CHCO are there for the kids and the fantastic doctors. The doctors are some the most amazing and supportive doctors you could hope to meet and work with. It's a privilege to support their work. The management at all levels needs work. There is a constant reassigning of managerial tasks to non managers without the increase in pay or promotion to support the change in responsibilities. Middle managers tend to be poor leaders and have minimal knowledge of CHCO policies and procedures.

This employer hired me from an outside job and trusted me to enter into this unit as a Charge Nurse. I worked with them as a travel nurse in 2015 and have had the most positive experience.

I learn something on a daily basis. Very supportive staff.
Fun place to work, excellent focus on children's wellbeing
Radiologic Technologist (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – April 4, 2016
This is a big company with multiple smaller clinics throughout the southern Colorado area. At times, it seemed like communication was lost between the main hospital and the other sites. Staffing was an issue, which made for busy days and tired employees. The most enjoyable part of this job is seeing the children's smiling faces when you have made their day a little bit better.
staffing problems, bad communication between higher management and the clinic
Loved working with the kids! but management was poor
Internal Patient Transport (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – March 22, 2016

Control Center Specialist (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – January 20, 2016
Staff is considered guilty before facts are gathered. Facts are not gathered effectively. No accountability. Work ethic by some staff are poor. to much blame game. Very little respect of staff by management and supervisors.
Research Assistant II (Current Employee) – Aurora, CO – December 22, 2015
Children's Hospital Colorado (CHCO) is one of the best places I've ever had the privilege of working. The people are incredibly friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere is one of acceptance and professionalism.
Working at CHCO has helped me cultivate my interpersonal skills and honed in my attention to detail. It has made me much more adept in problem solving and professional communication.
The hardest part of working here - for me - is determining what exactly is expected in every day operations. Due to the dynamic nature of the job, new situations can arise where the correct course of action is expected implicitly, but - at the same time - is not always intuitive.
This particular aspect of the job has contributed to developing functional independence and really emphasized the importance of becoming familiar with standard operating procedures and protocol ops.
I would recommend this job to anyone who is looking for a friendly atmosphere that is both challenging and stimulating. It is a great opportunity to learn about practical execution of research start-up, management, and operations.
