Very busy, staff friendly but hourly wage was too low
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJune 12, 2015
Pros: I worked 3 days (12 hour shifts) per week
Cons: Low pay, costly benefits
I liked the fact that I was always busy taking care of children, it made my day rewarding. My co-workers were helpful and resourceful. The most difficult part of my job is that I was consistently on my feet for most of my 12 hour shift. The only downfall for me was that the pay was low and from that pay I had to pay a good portion of my medical benefits. I stayed there because I enjoyed making a difference in lives of children who were overcoming serious medical conditions and/or surgeries.

Working with babies and kids is a joy on its own, helping making them feel better is an honor.
Patient Access Representative & Medical Assistant (Former Employee), San Diego, CASeptember 10, 2014
Pros: lots of chances for learning and growing
Cons: short breaks can sometimes get to you, but the kids are worth it.
Excellent place to work, staff and physicians all work together for the best of the patient, egos are rarely an issue. Hardest part is when no matter what is done for a patient we still lose. Best part is seeing a little one smile and feel better.

Amazing medical staff and nurses! Upper administration needs some improvement.
Staff RN (Current Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 30, 2014
Pros: highly skilled medical team, good team work
Cons: minimal support for advancing your education or skills/research
One of the best hospitals I've worked at in terms of the care given to the children and the skill level of staff.

The downside is that there's not much opportunity for advancement, little to no support or infrastructure for nursing research or advancing your education, and a big disconnect between the frontline staff and upper level administration and HR. I highly recommend working here for a few years to get some great experience, then move on if you want to advance professionally.

Clinic for Pediatric Cardiac patients
RN Clinical Care Coordinator (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJune 18, 2014
Pros: benefits are excellent
Cons: short lunch time due to patient schedule
Rady Childrens Pediatric Clinic is one of the busiest places I have worked. The wide range of culture and race that visits this clinic is evidence they need to expand their clinic. There are several providers and staff members that are seeing patients on a continual schedule. The providers and staff are fabulous. The director is genuinely caring and wants to promote closeness among the staff. She has a long history of working at Rady Childrens Hospital and therefore is an enormous advocate on their hospital philosophy. The physicians at the Cardiac Clinic are dedicated to improving the welfare of children and the families these children go home with. The education given to the families is phenomenal. This clinic is exceptionally efficient in treating their outpatient cardiac pediatric population.
