    I worked at Kennedy Krieger Institute part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    1.Experience is good for resume.
    2.Builds skills for hardworking and multitasking capabilities.

    Cons

    1. Upper Management has a lot of attitude for no reason, specially the scheduling lady; shows you a rude attitude for no reason.
    2. Unfair system, don't care about anything except there company
    3. Schedule flexibility is horrible
    4. Not understanding, write you up for dumb stuff; like being sick even with a doctors note
    5. Very very very unreasonable at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to favoriting, just because someone had been there a year versus 7 months doesn't mean automatically you should be nice to the person who was there longer yet a terrible employee versus the 7 month employee. Learn to be understanding, and actually think your employees are humans. Were not trash for you to use and throw away whenever you want. All the employees work really hard in the NBU. We work harder then you supervisors who sit there in the room the whole time. Also learn to assign patients to the proper size CA's. It is the dumbest thing to assign the biggest patient to a small person who will head butt them a kill them at the spot. You guys have no common sense; and sometimes knowing you have your favorite employees and give them the patients they want. JUst out of favoritism but then the ones who are not your favorite are stuck with the ridiculous huge patients.

    I have been working at Kennedy Krieger Institute

    Pros

    Very lenient with PTO
    Not very many people you won't get along with
    A lot of locations so depending on where you're at is where you'll most likely be

    Cons

    Certain jobs don't have very much room to move up, more lateral moving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If theres not much room to move up then allow for better increases. This can be hard though until the economy improves.
