    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!

    Top heavy organization, not enough front line staff. At times felt on "an island" when I needed the most support.

    Pros

    The kids really do come first.

    Cons

    Although I was relieved of my duties from Children's after 13yrs, there is not another hospital I would take my grandson to if he was seriously injured or sick,

    Advice to Management

    I feel that your current budget recovery and restructuring of management should start at the VP level on up. I think the outrages bonuses on a job you are paid to do is a little out there. I also feel CMCD is very top heavy in the VP area.

    Pros

    high salaries, flexible hours, great benefits, positive working environment.

    Cons

    very highly regulated, very demanding work which often interferes with personal endeavors and work / life balance, excessive amounts of paperwork required.

    Advice to Management

    Minimize the amounts of paperwork if at all possible and allow your health care providers to focus more of their attention on actually providing high quality care.
