    I worked at Children's Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Obviously working for a system like Children's is an honor, and a privilege. The people are great, the facility is beautiful and you are making life better for children! Just thinking about my time there makes me proud. The benefits are great, and the PTO is plentiful.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of flexibility (ie working from home) for a lot of administrative departments - even though many of the other big systems in the area allow their employees to so. There is A LOT of work to be done, and sometimes employees get overwhelmed but overall, it's not bad. Employees have to park a little far away too.

    Advice to Management

    Start finding ways to give a little more autonomy with the flexibility (they'll go to other systems to get it!) otherwise - keep doing what you're soinf!

    I have been working at Children's Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Generally some great people to work with.

    Cons

    Administration is highly egotistical and unappreciative of real working conditions throughout company and are astoundingly out of touch with how unsatisfied the general employee population really is. They are unwilling to make necessary changes within themselves and instead place blame on employees for their unhappiness.

    Advice to Management

    This is a non-profit organization...Stop spending money on the latest gadgets for yourself to make yourself feel good and instead ensure employees have adequate technology. Also, stop making agreements which prevent current employees from pursuing careers with local competition ....that is blackballing, plain ridiculous and should be illegal. If you paid and treated your employees better they wouldn't want to leave.

    I have been working at Children's Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone in Leadership is invested in your personal and professional growth. I got to pick the best 8 hour shift that worked best for me and my family From Orientaion to Trainning To Getting on the Floor There was always someone resourceful around to lend a helping hand, answer question ect. Free Covered Parking for employees( NOT MANY HOSPITALS DO THAT) Meal Deductions with your badge (Comes in handy on a rainy day or a dry day lol)

    Cons

    Dont reallly have to many cons, besides not being able to get overtime. and im not to happy about having a designated time i have to take lunch. but other than that very happy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.... but a little OT would be nice (wink Wink)

    I worked at Children's Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for, as long as you agree with anything management says.

    Cons

    Reporting problems to HR or Medical Affairs only makes life worse for you. Filing an EEOC won't help either.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they tell you they are being mistreated by management, even in Medical Affairs.

    NARCISSIST SLT AND CEO - VERY SAD FOR EMPLOYEES

    Pros

    Medical staff still believes in original mission and vision.

    Cons

    Too many Narcissistic SLT members. CEO hires his SLT members from a long list of executives that have been fired more than once from other executive positions. What's up with that. Look alive, there is a reason they were fired. Check them out. They are running a great hospital into the ground and it seems like they are trying very hard to do that and seem happy about it. SHAME ON THE BOARD FOR HIRING DUROVICH.

    Advice to Management

    They would never take advice because they are all perfect and know it all. And they are just there for the millions of dollars they are making and they are spending all they can.
