    Pros

    This is a great hospital, providing excellent healthcare to children.

    Cons

    The new nursing administration (at the top) began making changes in 2011 that greatly impacted the overall morale and satisfaction of the nursing staff; and also hindered their ability to provide the excellent nursing care that Children's Hospital has always been known for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate the goals and focus of the hospital moving forward. Bring back the positive morale of the nurses, who are the engine that can make or break the facility.

    I worked at Children's of Alabama full-time

    Pros

    Children's has great benefits for the area and competitive salaries. Time off is generous. It is easy to support the mission, vision and values of the organization. Patients and their families are grateful for the work you do. Staff are often long term.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement are hard to come by. Many of the senior leadership have been with the organization 20+ years and are not expected to retire for another 10-15 years. The close working relationship with UAB can be a political minefield.

    I worked at Children's of Alabama full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Lot of wonderful employees working together to improve the health of those kids we serve. The atmosphere is very good and a very happy one. Overall, the staffing in each of the departments seems to be reasonable. We are now in the brand new state of the art hospital that is beautiful and gives employees a great place to work every day.

    Cons

    The top leadership at the hospital are not a cohesive group and they often times pulling in different directions. Some lack the skills to lead the departments they are responsible for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously evaluate your top leadership on the 6th floor and get rid of those who are no longer capable of leading their areas effectively. Don't keep poor leaders just because they have a long tenure.
