I worked at Children's Hospital Of The King's Daughters full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The children.
The impact you can make on the family of a sick child is all the gratitude I need.
The doctor I worked under was amazing & we kept in touch long after I left the practice.

Cons

Besides being completely underpaid, management was very cruel and played favorites; enjoyed pitting colleagues against one another.
Got to the point where I hated coming to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A new manager altogether would be a wise idea.

    Pros

    Only pediatric hospital in the immediate area, great staff physicians, amazing patients, strong community support

    Cons

    Poor pay, poor benefits, employees are very condescending towards each other creating a negative work environment, managers play favorites, difficult to get time off, hospital offers tuition assistance however makes it difficult to claim, raises are few and far between, raises are small when given, hospital does not recognize employees for excellent work, "guilty until proven innocent" frame of mind

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your employees; all the good employees are leaving for hospitals that treat them better, and it's beginning to show in the quality of care.

    I worked at Children's Hospital Of The King's Daughters

    Pros

    If you like working with children and you enjoy children then that will be the main reason you will like it. Noting else in order for you to even be remotely appreciated you need to be a nurse, thats it hands down. if you do any other job in the office its not recognized.

    Cons

    There are too many to name, a few environment, the doctors, no increase, no promotions etc... Management's not good. It does not matter how many times you contact human resource they do not seem to help you and even when they do management will put a bulls eye on your back and will pick on you until you decide to leave. The office is run in the manner of "Do As I Say, But Not As I Do". They do not practice what they preach and the Doctors, are very uptight and they do not appreciate anything that the staff does. They yell a lot and do not have any sense of decency and management will put non-certified individuals in positions that they are not certified to be in and are not educated to be in. On a whole this company will make you loose your religion. This company is not worth you loosing your sanity over neither yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Head office needs to do a clean sweep of management all around. Management is not helpful and will not assist you if you have medical issues that need to be taken care of.
