I have been working at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics

Pros

I love working for Children's Mercy. The management is fair and high-level leadership is very competent and makes good choices for the employees. My immediate supervisors have worked with my through struggles in my personal life. They will adapt and make changes to accommodate their employees needs. I would recommend a job at the hospital to anyone seeking to work with good quality health professionals. Staffing ratios are suburb, they have to be the best in the metro.

Cons

The worst thing I can think of is that we must ride a shuttle bus from the off-site parking location. At most, this is a slight annoyance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep fighting the good fight for your employees. We appreciate you!

    Pros

    Everything. This is a place where the kids REALLY DO COME FIRST! From management to staffers, everyone understands this and works together.

    Cons

    Sometimes upper management have different ideas about how to achieve the same goal. Occassionally it takes too long to come to concensus and it leaves middle managers scrambling to implement their decisions.

    Other than that...this place is wonderful!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Make decisions together.

    Employees are undervalued. Part of your compensation is supposed to be feeling good about where you work.

    I have been working at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics

    Pros

    Well respected institution in the community.
    Working for the good of children.
    Tuition pre-payment for school, Avila Advantage on campus program.

    Cons

    You're expected to consider yourself lucky to work at such a well-respected institution.
    Absolutely no chance of moving up from within. You must leave and then return in order to get a promotion of any type despite any education you gain.
    I've worked here for 10 years and am finishing up my MBA. Members of my class have said they were actually told by HR that the education we gained while employed here is worthless in our application for promoted positions. They would consider someone from outside the institution before someone from within.
    Major difference in viewpoints of people who have been here less than 5 years and those who've been here over 5 years. 5 years seems to be the point at which you are exposed to the rotten, ugly underbelly that is the good ol' boys political network of CMH. The happy, glossy facade hides an ugly, horrible, political minefield. Welcome to hell my friends.
    Advice to those who want to work here: get in, get your education, get out within 5 years...period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create plans for people to grow professionally and to be promoted or keep watching good, talented people who share your vision and culture walk out the door to better opportunities.
