Overall, good organization with great mission

Manager (Former Employee)

ProsThe mission of working for an organization whose purpose is to care for sick children (esp. those who cannot pay) and find cures for disease and illness is hard to beat. Overall the organization values work life balance. For a non profit, pediatric organization, it's compensation is ok, benefits are great.

ConsIt can be surprisingly bureaucratic as it is a very consensus driven culture. That can be a con and can really slow down the pace of innovation in some areas. If you are in a non direct patient care related role (like marketing/IT, etc.) don't expect to find an organization where you will be able to truly innovate. If you con't care so much about that, it can be a very solid place to work.

If you are in tech/IT our salary here will be under Seattle market value by a good 20% at least. But it's stability and mission can offset that.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Wonderful Colleagues but ALL Management is ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE!

    Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Seattle Children's full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: The people that work here truly love working with and taking care of children. The employees take pride in helping these sick kids. … Cons: The pay could be better, but management is all about the bottom dollar. Healthcare at Seattle Children's has become more of a business, rather… Advice to Senior Management: I think it has already been said that your employees are the ones that make you (the management) look good.
