    Pros

    All the staff here are very nice and helpful. I've worked at different hospitals before and this is by far the less stressed staff I've seen so far.

    Cons

    The organization started taking away some benefits from their employees. This caused some drama and unnecessary stress.

    Pros

    The only positive was quitting...

    Cons

    This was the worst place, I have ever worked. They do not respect their employees and bullying is encouraged. The worst management, I have ever had. Shame on you Children's. I will never speak good about you and HR plays the same nepotism card......

    Advice to Management

    I work now for awesome company where RN's are respected. That should be your example...please respect your employees.....

    Pros

    Fortunately, in the end we're all here for the children.

    Cons

    Complete lack of communication between senior leadership and everyone else. An utterly ridiculous amount of disorganization for an organization of this size, which is actually on the smaller side; 5500 + or - employees.

    Advice to Management

    Refine the practices and processes currently in-place. COMMUNICATE!

    Pros

    Excellent facility
    Provides great care to children and their families

    Cons

    Department specific:
    Poor work-life balance
    Low morale of employees

    Advice to Management

    Looking after current employees will save significant costs of constant recruitment and training. It will also assist with workload and morale.

    Pros

    Hi level of trust with their employees. My department seemed to be particularly collaborative, but in general there seemed to be good inter-departmental communication and healthy competition.
    The executive team does a great job of growing potential leaders.
    In general, this is a great company to work for. I would work there again.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any downsides to working for this company. If anything, I saw people leave (as did I) for other opportunities.

    Pros

    Children's offers very competitive salaries and good benefits. The mission is excellent. I can't think of an employer with a better cause. Children's offers the opportunity to work with current technologies and enterprise equipment.

    Cons

    Culture has been declining over the last few years. Leadership seems a bit rudderless. A long string of poor judgment and bad decisions has led to overspending and low moral. Wages are very good and in fact a little higher than market in most cases, but in spite of that people are still leaving. The evolving culture seems to include fear and intimidation. Dissenting opinions are a big no no. There has been a pretty significant talent drain in IT and it seems to be accelerating. A growing lack of trust between staff and leadership has developed. Just recently devices were installed under every desk to monitor when employees are at their desk. The initial message from leadership was that the devices were for tracking air flow. It wasn't until later that the true purpose of the devices was disclosed. It is a real shame that this once great organization with a terrific mission has lost its way. Hopefully the new CEO can get things back on track and make the organization a great place once again for the most talented and creative minds to call home.
