    I have been working at East Tennessee Children's Hospital full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nothing that is worth working there

    Cons

    Pay is absolutely TERRIBLE. Management does not control ANYTHING. Literally days after putting in my notice, there was a death in my immediate family. My boss told me that I could change my schedule as much as I needed to accommodate this. Then, I tried calling her for two days straight to try and figure out my schedule. She never called me back, even though I called over 5 times and left a message every time. I came into the office, and HR refused to answer my questions. And my boss basically told me that they were not going to be flexible or hospitable with my situation AT ALL. I have never been so poorly treated or so disappointed in a company in my life!

    I worked at East Tennessee Children's Hospital

    Pros

    The only good thing about the hospital is the patients.

    Cons

    The pt units are usually so understaffed nurses and support staff have an obscene pt load that can be a safety issue. the nurse managers shouldn't be in management let alone nursing. And as far as pay goes the more u do the less u get paid and without any appreciation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk in every positions shoes for a shift. Fight for better raises. Fight for your employees. Don't just blow them off or ignore their needs.

    Patients get excellent service, but employee satisfaction with workplace leaves a lot of room for improvement.

    I have been working at East Tennessee Children's Hospital

    Pros

    convenient and what Im trained to do. I like my field of work.

    Cons

    Too many managers. Too much statistic gathering and not enough problem solving.
    Changes are frequently made without employee input that results in poor results and confusion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some education on how to manage. Quit hiring your relatives in your units.

    I worked at East Tennessee Children's Hospital

    Pros

    Easy to feel connected to ETCH's mission. Great people there that are committed to their work. You get to be part of the healthcare of children!

    Cons

    Not a fan of the location. Even though the people I worked with were intelligent, dedicated, and committed; there was still a lack of morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wouldn't pretend to understand what the leadership of an organization of this scope should do to improve their business.
