    Pros

    A sick children are afraid when they are so sick, the parents are stressed at the same time. In my position I am able to give a little comfort to both. CHOA is known to be the best for children.
    I will use all my skills acquired to be an asset to the unit.

    Cons

    I am only sorry I have not became a part of this service sooner.

    Pros

    I love CHOA!! CHOA understands work/home life balance. CHOA really does care about the patients and puts there everything into caring for the children. CHOA has spirit weeks for each department in the hospital to celebrate their hard work.

    Cons

    CHOA doctors/clinical staff can be very prejudice and disrespectful to those who are non-clinical staff. The doctors/clincal staff can treat other staff very rude and look down on them just because they are not doing actual patient care.

    Pros

    Many of the negative reviews are from team members who were let go because they were not pulling their weight and contributing. This is a company that values employees - but we are here for a mission and a purpose. Management is working hard and has improved pay and the working environment. The new working location is the best I've ever seen for an IT department.

    CHOA has a great mission. I love coming to work and feeling like I am really making a difference! Turnover is well under 10% and that is good for IT. People stay for a reason. Mission and value.

    Cons

    When project deadlines hit, hours can be long sometimes - but this is the same in ANY IT department. At least we are doing this for a meaningful purpose.. Not to make someone rich.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to mentor and grow staff. Support growth and opportunity.

    Pros

    Great place to learn about pediatric Radiology. Benefits are better that some other companies in Healthcare.

    Cons

    Lot of changed happened..., benefits were taken away without involving the employees. Shift differentials, yearly salary are not increasing. less than 1%. I heard employees getting 17 cents / hour increase. Very stressful environment and lot of radiation exposure for employees.
    In Radiology, management is not fair, cross training is not based on merits neither promotion. It is based on who you know. Radiologists are very hard to work with too.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair, offer opportunities to employees who deserve it. Compensate employees for the risk they are taking because of radiation exposure.

    Pros

    Awesome company to work for. They are ranked as top children's hospital.

    Cons

    Salary ranges are low related to other hospitals in the atlanta area. They can do that because they have a monopoly on the children's hospitals.
