Great place to work but mismatch between perception and reality in some areas
Employee (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – November 7, 2013
A + for marketing itself as a world renowned cancer center for children that is compassionate and caring.
C - For actually carrying out its patient focused mission. With an exception of a few physicians, most leave too much patient care and contact to supporting nursing staff.
A for research although at the expense of delivering better quality patient care.
A - F for Senior Management. Most very engaged, supportive, and informed. But a few who are disconnected, uninformed, and lack ability to manage their areas. Result - unable to adequately evaluate those who report to them, indecisive, and manage by consensus.
A for culture and compensation. Overall, very employee friendly and supportive, perhaps too much so. HR continually strives to make it a better place to work, although too many employees complain no matter how well they have it.
