Pros

The pay at Children's Mercy Hospital is pretty decent. Working to promote the health and wellness of children is very satisfying. There are ways to advance in the organization, if you play to the right people.

Cons

Management doesn't care about staff. I had a human resources employee tell me that everyone is expendable. The politics of the hospital is complex and gets in the way of doing a good job in some departments. Nurses and Doctors are treated well, but everyone else not so much. Nurses rule this hospital, so if you go against them, it doesn't go well. Management is in competition with eachother, so sometimes things don't get done, that should. If you believe in the "Mercy Way", things will go well for you at this hospital.

Advice to Management

Communicate with your staff!

    Pros

    CChildren's Mercy, for the most part, is highly committed to providing top-notch care to children. As a physician you have access to the best in diagnostic and laboratory testing and specialists available for consultation for your patients. Most everyone that works here takes great pride in what they do, and therefore, everyone works with a great sense of teamwork and purpose. It is a beautiful campus that is always expanding to meet new needs. The hospital takes good care of its employees with great benefits and programs. The salaries are also very competitive and physicians have a nice educational stipend.

    Cons

    I often feel like I have no control over the day-to -day operations of how our clinic is run. I feel like the administration does not listen, or does not care what the people in "the trenches" have to say about what might make thinks run more smoothly. Also, like with any corporation, you have to deal with the BS things like the yearly anti-harrasement training, "diversity training", HIPPA training, ect.

    Advice to Management

    Help us to run our clinic more smoothly and help us help our patients have better access.

    Pros

    I personally love working with the kids. I truly look forward to coming to work to see what cute kiddos I am going to meet and take care of for that shift. In addition, I am very proud to work at this hospital. It was just recently rated one of the Top 10 Places to Work in Kansas City, which I think speaks for itself. This hospital works very hard to encourage their employees to move up into a more senior leadership role. They also makes you feel appreciated and proud to be a part of an organization that is so well respected in Kansas City. If anyone has had a child come to Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics, I have never heard a negative comment. Almost everyone has had a positive experience regarding their treatment at this hospital. I am proud to say I work at Children's Mercy.

    Cons

    I honestly do not believe their are any downsides. I can not imagine myself working in any other hospital or clinic than my current location. All of the staff members work together in order to give these children the best possible care. I have several friends who work at other nearby hospitals, who are unsatisfied with their New Nurse Orientation process, scheduling, and hospital policies; however, I have not had a single complaint to give with my hospital. If I were to pinpoint the hardest downside to working at Children's Mercy Hospital, I would have to say that to see some children in pain, or terrible situations, that would be the biggest downside. I just have to keep in mind that I am taking care of these children to make them better to get through the hard shifts.

    Advice to Management

    I would have to say that the New Graduate Nurse Orientation is fantastic. I truly felt very prepared coming off orientation to be working by myself. The classes and instructors were very helpful and made the learning fun and easy to remember. I really feel as though I am a part of a great team at this hospital, that I am truly making a difference in the lives of these children.
