    Pros

    Great work environment, strong mission.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Benefits are pretty good - retirement, etc.

    Cons

    As in all large corporations, there are the 'usual' big machine hoops to jump through, especially If/when trying to order something (at least on the IT side of the house). Clinical side may be different.
