    Pros

    Helping children and the community

    Cons

    They have openings, but won't fill them with qualified people, because they play favorites. You have to know somebody who knows somebody to get certain jobs there.

    Advice to Management

    Hire diverse staff and don't allow hiring managers the opportunity to ignore excellent candidates, because they are diiferent.

    Pros

    Department managers are caring and understanding

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement even after finishing degree, applied for different positions and application wasn't even considered by HR, does not value current employees, way under-payed compared to the daily verbal assault from parents who want to get their way all the time

    Advice to Management

    Reward hard workers and provide paths for advancement within the organization.

    Pros

    Loved working with children as patients and helping little ones heal.

    Cons

    Orthopedic surgery is sometimes challenging as it's hard to see abuse cases come through the department. Who would ever want to hurt a child. But I was happy to be a part of the healing process and getting little ones back to themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Need to pay more attention to department issues and why there was a huge turnover at one point. The work environment under certain management was poorly executed.

    Pros

    The hospital is truly made for the kids unlike VCU

    Cons

    Money was not very good but the best Pediatric Hospital in all of Virginia.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the lateral violence that takes place

  11. Corp. identity heavy on Foundation history, light on innovative healthcare delivery

    Pros

    Office culture here is very relaxed, flexible and welcoming. Health system is growing in fits and starts, So will likely need more skilled personnel in the next 2-5 years. Middle-management generally very open to change.

    Cons

    Little HR turnover encourages staleness. Leadership biography reflects generally narrow backgrounds, many locals. Information technology probably 5 years behind industry leaders / 3 years behind Industry standards. Conservation and environmental impact would not seem to be on the radar.

    Advice to Management

    The recycle bins in the employee parking lot has not been emptied for at least 2 years. This is just a small but visible example. Recent efforts at improving safety and directly addressing cultural barriers was very refreshing.
