    I have been working at Children's National Health System full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to care for interesting and underserved patients; smart and caring nurses and doctors who really try to do the best they can; full range of pediatric subspecialties

    Cons

    The organization does not care about its employees. Salary and benefits are terrible, especially for a high-cost area like Washington. The IT systems are antiquated, often break down and don't communicate with each other. HR is non-responsive; it's hard even to get an email or phone call returned. Leadership is uninspired. They believe their own PR and confuse it with having a vision. The hospital also is patient-unfriendly; families have difficulty making appointments and even getting their doctors on the phone. These problems have existed for years, but the people who make the decisions don't care about improving them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the leadership. Replace HR and the IT infrastructure. Value employees and patients and treat us as you'd want yourselves and your families to be treated. Stop spending so many millions of dollars on the latest trendy consultants who bring no lasting value to the organization.

    I worked at Children's National Health System

    Pros

    CNMC has friendly staff who are passionate about their work

    Cons

    Admin and management do not provide a lot of assitance or guidence for smaller departments that do not conduct dirct service to admitted patients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better support to non patient serving entities within the CNMC health system.

  8. Overall, great place, but there's room for improvement.

    I have been working at Children's National Health System part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employees within departments work as teams.

    Cons

    Employees across different departments don't necessarily work as a team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue pushing employees to be proactive with each other, in addition to with patients. For example, if you know a co-worker is about to make a mistake, be proactive and say something to them.

    Pros

    Overall friendly culture, smart staff, nice facilities

    Cons

    Unnecessarily combative manager who excels at negative feedback and neglects positive feedback for hard workers, all the expected stresses that come with this field, HR is currently understaffed and mistake-prone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the hard work done, use mistakes as opportunities to learn and not opportunities to keep people down, insecure, and subservient (which doesn't work)

    Pros

    Good RN pay, fun, friendly environment.

    Cons

    No appreciation by executive leadership. VERY high turnover. Cuts on resources and leadership positions. Seemed as if they had no concern for nurses. Our comments and suggestions seemed disregarded.
