    I have been working at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They bring in top physicians and have wonderful nursing care. The atmosphere in clinic is high energy, organized and everyone's top priority is patient care.

    Cons

    Lots of CRCs, who are intelligent and hard working leave the hospital to work in CROs. This leaves patients who participate and could benefit from research, at a loss. I knew a lot of CRCs and some of their PIs were wonderful (PIs: Rheumatology, Oncology, Pulmonary are awesome!) but other division's PIs were downright mean and unfair to their CRCs. Also, your manager will know little about research processes.

    Pros

    Overall a very good place to good place to work and get research experience.

    Cons

    Dealing with HR at the beginning of the hiring process was unpleasant. It is a lengthy process and it was difficult to get a hold of the head woman in charge to make the necessary appointments. Also the mandatory orientation is only offered a few times a month on the same day at the same times so there is not much flexibility.
