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

Pros

They tend to grab people with little to no experience. So this can be great for someone getting out of college or starting a new career path. There is also a general sense of community where everyone knows it's all about helping the children.

Cons

The pay is horrible and you don't get any raises or promotions. there is virtually no room for advancement. A lot of the employees including management have been there for 10+ years and have strong bias towards new comers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

After 2 years management tends to treat you like your as new as the employee they just hired. there is a tendency for them to only trust employees there for 10 years or more.

    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.
