    Like all good things....

    I worked at Shriners Hospitals For Children

    Pros

    Great place to learn a career; excluding the highly trained and experienced medical staff, they know theirs. Just about anyone can rise to positions of importance - taking advantage of the last two rounds of layoffs and retirement of the higher paid and most experienced staff. Experience is a plus. You get to choose from two or three health insurance benefits. Choose the PPO medical insurance, it covers therapy.

    Cons

    Plan to do the job of multiple employees. Any voluntary event in which the Imperial Potentate will make an appearance is mandatory; the headquarters building will be shut down for business to the public and hospitals. Learn not to take yourself too seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! The marketing plan is brilliant! Can't wait to see it in action! The penultimate non-profit!

    Pros

    Just work one day a week as a research assistant. People there are very nice and helpful.

    The computer system hospital provides is not as sufficient for data analyze.

    I worked at Shriners Hospitals For Children full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working to improve the lives of children who have orthopedic problems free of charge to the families. And I guess even though it required working for an incompetent buffoon, the fact that I gained some experience here would be a pro. I guess.

    Cons

    Daily micromanagement and demeaning treatment. Incompetence on the part of management. HR staff that shouldn't even be allowed to work at McDonalds much less a hospital.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current management should just stop even trying. Just stop. Let someone qualified run the show. The children will thank you.

    Employees really care about the kids. Flexible schedule available. Good balance between work and home.

    Management can be lacking at times. The hospital seems to be a little top heavy. Limited opportunities to move up within the organization.
