    I worked at Texas Children's Hospital full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The hospital seemed to work as a very good team when it comes to patient care. Every employee seemed to be important in the eyes of the hospital from the housekeeping staff , lab, pharmacy , nurses and doctors. Working in an allied health profession, this is often ignored at hospitals.

    Cons

    Driving to the Texas medical center. The hospital does provide bus passes for free though.

    A great place to work for

    I have been working at Texas Children's Hospital

    Pros

    Friendly environment at work, with great benefits and facilities for employees. Provides parking. Easy to commute to and from work.

    Cons

    Nothing major. I work in research and have to deal with a lot of purchasing, and it is much more difficult to deal with TCH purchasing than with Baylor's. It is harder to get things approved and it takes much longer for orders to be fulfilled by the vendors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing.

    I have been working at Texas Children's Hospital as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is the ability to help others and make a difference in someone's life.

    Cons

    I didn't experience anything negative while here, but if I had to say it would be the parking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide additional training in the many areas of the hospital will benefit everyone involved.

    Pros

    The culture. The opportunities. Profound responsibility to care for employees so we can deliver best possible care to our patients. There is no mission more inspiring that Texas Children's.

    Cons

    Commute time is rough depending on where you live.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the visionary leadership!

    I worked at Texas Children's Hospital full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hands down the best reasons are the patients! Benefits are pretty good. Opportunity to work in many different areas but you have to convince 'leadership' of your talents as they can be very narrow minded.

    Cons

    You can be the worst and most unproductive employee and you will never be counseled or fired which ultimately poorly affects those that word very hard. I guess that's a pro for someone not looking to do much. Work life balance is ignored. HR is not supportive and there is a harassing/threatening environment in some departments. Favoritism, nepotism...things you should never have to see run rampant at TCH. It is too admin top heavy with those taking credit for the accomplishments when it's really those hands on employees at the 'lower' levels that deserve the credit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop rewarding the wrong people. And quite frankly the people receiving this tip are likely those wrong people which is why the culture won't be changing for a long time to come.
    I've seen first hand the development of the women's center and administration completely ignoring feasible resolutions to many issues from those that experienced the work flow first hand! It will literally take an adverse event before someone will see what a mess this place has become...so sad

    Pros

    Starting salaries are better than other employers. Employee benefits and discounts are awesome.

    Cons

    Of course, the commute is horrible, and parking is expensive. Not so easy to climb the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not always who you know, but what you know. Experience should count.
