CARE ANALYST AND CAREGIVER (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 14, 2019
An excellent place to work. You will not only be helping kids, but you will learn and grow in the profession. Well run IT, sometimes one supplements funding with hard work and innovation. Great, dedicated people. This is not so much a job as a mission.
Working with the best in the world helping kids be well
Clinical Research Associate I (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 3, 2019
I loved working for Seattle Children's Hospital. Management was a reason for my happiness. The management team listened to my ideas and pushed me to become better. Everybody that worked there on my team were all hard workers that are a big believer in the company and what it does. We all have the same goal to help the children and at the end of the day, you feel proud of what you do and what company you work for.
Non profit organization tend to pay on the lower scale.
Senior Business Analyst, Project Management Office (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 4, 2019
The mission and providers of Seattle Childrens are deeply compelling and inspiring. There were several providers I looked forward to every meeting because they were comitted, brilliant and an inspiration. They inspired me every day. At the time of this writing there is a great deal of change and reorganizatin occurring that will upend the culture so I can't speak to any of that at this time.
Laboratory Assistant lll (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – December 21, 2018
Rewarding place to work especially with the children. The only downfall is that they were not very good in handling workplace harassment. I as well as other co workers were harassed and took the appropriate measures to seek help, but it continued and the harasser was not dealt with appropriately.
Utilization Review Coordinator (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – November 27, 2018
SCH is a great place to work. Employees' ideas are listened to and taken into consideration when department changes are being discussed/made. The management style is "bottom up," meaning, the managers work for the employees, to make sure their needs/concerns are addressed.
UTLIZATION REVIEW COORDINATOR (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 19, 2018
This organization has allowed me to grow so much within my medical reimbursement career. If I didn't have to move our of state to support my husbands career, I would be a life long employee at Seattle Children's. They offer ongoing education throughout the entire year which is wonderful; this also includes personal safety classes.
Great care for children and families but difficult workplace.
Program Manager, Sustainability (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – November 18, 2018
Seattle Children's is a great place for healthcare workers and those that thrive in a collaborative team orientated environment. However, the leadership is more concerned with its image to the outside than what is happening on inside.
Medical Records Assistant (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 23, 2018
Typical day at work included performing duties in a cycle. Metrics were set that needed to be met during each cycle. Working at Children's included a lot of busy work and did not have a lot of time for interaction with others unless. Overall, job was easy.
Sleep Technologist (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – November 26, 2018
I love seattle children’s hospital. I am looking for other opportunities because I feel I can do more. I also am a shift worker and it’s becoming too hard on my body. The staff I work with and the my management team are wonderful and caring.
Exciting and challenging work environment with a highly supportive and collaborative team
Pediatric physical therapist (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – August 14, 2018
Acute care team consisting of consults, cancer care, and inpatient rehab. They are a teaching hospital and take students frequently, which makes it a welcoming and thought-provoking environment. Management is incredibly selfless and always looking out for the best interests of the therapists. The team consisting of PT, OT, SLP are friendly, knowledgeable, selfless, and passionate about their job.
Program Administrator (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – August 7, 2018
SCH and SCRI are both great places to work in many ways, but unless you are an MD it is very difficult to carve out a career path.
MDs at the hospital can be very aggressive toward support and administrative staff.
PIs at the research institute are very much at adds with administration, due to not wanting to spend their grant money on anything (like compliance), other than research. The CRAs are thrown in with no training, leading to a higher than average turnover rate.
Social Worker (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – November 28, 2018
This place is racist. Families of color will get picked on more than whites families. Pay is not good. Parking is awful, often taking hours to get home. Employees of color picked on worse than white counterparts. No job training or support
Audiology Program Assistant (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – July 22, 2018
Children's is a wonderful company that is true to its mission. It is a teaching hospital to many academic students, and is firmly committed to helping students build confidence in their practice. In addition, it has competitive research department, and influential foundation.
However the company is growing much faster than it can sustain. As a result, many departments are feeling overworked, as they try to support the company vision to do more with less.
Good benefits, ORCA pass, community discounts, (some) job coaching/oppurtunity for advancement, fulfilling work
Pay to park, limited pay negotiation, constant pressure to take on process improvement projects
Laboratory Technician III (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 19, 2018
I enjoyed my time here because of the staff, management, and workplace environment. I felt like we were really helping the lives of the patients. I was a phlebotomist in this company at the main hospital of Seattle Children's.
Pediatric Mental Health Specialist (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – July 24, 2018
Very challenging work within a fast paced environment. The position does give the opportunity to acquire and refine new skills. Underpaid for the difficulty and burn-out rate of this position. The department is understaffed which can lead to employees working mandatory hours.
Director of Regional Operations and Maintenance (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 23, 2018
Does great things for children. The staff and organization truly believe in their mission. I will say, certain members of senior leadership needs to learn how to encourage and support the efforts of their directors and managers.
Nurse Practitioner (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 18, 2018
Workplace culture is quite toxic. There is no autonomy and in general people are very unhappy in their jobs. It is a culture of micromanagement, leaving most employees feeling non-essential, which is very demoralizing.
Facilities Lead/Electrician (Current Employee) – Bellevue, WA – September 13, 2018
Working for Seattle Childrens Hospital was an awesome experience. I learned many things regarding the Health Care processes and special criteria that needs to be met. Every day was a learning experience.
Pediatric Mental Health Specialist II (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – August 20, 2018
I wore many hats from Emergency Room to Inpatient Psychiatric Unit. They co-workers were amazing! You're dealing with ill patients and families and under those circumstances it's a great place to work.
