Health Unit Coordinator (Former Employee) – Hartford, CT – November 16, 2017
I was very fortunate to have been given an opportunity to work at CT children's, I have worked for Hartford Hospital my entire young Life but the experience that I had at the children's hospital was like none other. I have children of my own so to have been able to have been around children all day was a blessing.
Administrative Assistant II (Current Employee) – Hartford – November 15, 2017
Some managers are good, some are poor examples of leadership based on availability to their staff and management styles. It can be a supportive work environment based on direct leadership each role answers to.
The typical workday involved lots of very intense patient care. You won't last long here if you're a slacker. The management has very high standards and expects your best every day. That wasn't the part which bothered me though. Some of the management here wasn't very sensitive or professional. Others were professional but it was kind of a mixed bag of good management as well as bad. The best part of working here was obviously that it's purpose driven work which is very meaningful. Plus the benefits were pretty good. One area of improvement though is more training for management. Some of them aren't very professional and fail to bring out their employees' best potential.
Competitive benefits and really good medical coverage
Lack of training and professionalism from management
Fun place to work, stressful and face-paced at times. Very rewarding and you truly learn a lot working with children. I have learned and grown professionally a lot in the past year, and I couldn't ask for a better entry level position in my field.
Undergraduate Research Associate (Former Employee) – Hartford, CT – September 21, 2017
It is important to note that I was a student and not paid by CCMC. I had a good deal of autonomy and the staff always treated me well. My supervisor/professor was amazing and worked hard to ensure we left the program with great experience and opportunity.
I have worked at CCMC since it opened in 1996. We grew from a tiny new hospital to a nationally renowned medical center. And yet it feels like home and family. The staff are very close and supportive of each other
N/A (Former Employee) – Rocky Hill, CT – July 21, 2017
CCMC is intent on building a results-oriented, data-driven, respectful and collegial culture. The success of this varies by unit: some employees love their jobs and the organization, others can't wait to bail. Overall, it seems to be a place in transition.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Hartford, CT – July 6, 2017
Management wasn't the best. it got so out of hand that it just made me uncomfortable being at work. I learned not to trust often and never let your guard down because everyone tries to get each other fired. at first it was a good environment to be. i loved it and then the bosses and supervisor started falling employee. would wait outside the bathroom till you were done to make sure you don't over stay in the bathroom. if they catch you talking to another employee they will write you up. it just got ridiculous
Practice Manager II (Current Employee) – Hartford, CT – June 21, 2017
One of a handful of small pediatric hospitals struggling to survive and unable to compete with neighboring hospitals. If you are invested in your professional growth, it is difficult to achieve at this employer.
Emergency Department Technician (Former Employee) – Hartford, CT – June 12, 2017
The Emergency Department at Connecticut Children's Medical Center was an amazing place to be employed at. Their unique approach to treating children taught me a lot that I continue to use in my career.
The company has a philosophy of making the residents a priority. This ideal starts at the the top with the executive staff. They talk the talk and walk the walk. Very motivating environment to work in.
