I have been working at Children's Hospital Of The King's Daughters full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

There are a lot of friendly people to work with, great intern program, good surgeons, patient's can be adorable.

Cons

It doesn't have a merit based pay initiative, it only gives out a cost of living wage, and even that is taken away when finances are difficult. No clinical ladder. Advancement opportunities are not really earned but given to friends as perks. There is no retention program, there is no retention.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You shouldn't be afraid of what is the right thing to do.

    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.
