    I have been working at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The training is really good, you get a lot of freebies working in the ED, the scheduling is okay if you're not in school. Some of the nurses will "bully" you in a way or get you to do things they don't necessarily want to do themselves, so stick up for yourself ! tell them no if you don't want to do it.

    Cons

    Some of the nurses can be really egocentric and mean, work-life balance is NOT good for a student in college, very very very long shifts. 10 hours at the least.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to appreciate employees. Stop putting so many coworkers in management, Micro managing never works. Provide better parking or shuttle service. Hire competent employees. Stop being cheap, equal pay as Scottish Rite. Always criticizing all the time.

    Parking sucks! Management does not deal with issues effectively. Turnover rate is abnormally high.

    Management in place does not hold everyone accountable for their actions. Certain employees receive passes for horrible and disrespectful behavior and continue to make their workplace a hostile environment.
