    I worked at Texas Children's Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, CEO very involved and it is obvious he has a positive vision for TCH. I would recommend working in areas outside of the Pavillion.

    Cons

    Too much of a "highschool, clickish" environment in the Pavillion. Management not easy to talk to about concerns, unit training not well organized. ALOT of lost breaks and extra time including coming in for meetings that are "unpaid"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a more organized orientation, make sure all employees feel welcome and part of a team, keep the doors of communication open and accept feedback without being verbally hostile. Employees also have a life outside of work, there needs to be more of an effort from management to recognize and honor this within reason.

    I have been working at Texas Children's Hospital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You'll have a job.This is a great place for nurses who manage to get hired on

    Cons

    Nepotism, cronyism. No career track for employees, no advancement through hard work, only if select people like you enough to give you an opportunity. HR does not advocate very well for employees. A good trustworthy leader is hard to find.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you want, you have been for years.

    I worked at Texas Children's Hospital full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flex time is great. Awarded time off if goals met on month to month basis of up to four hours maximum

    Cons

    Management treats you as if you don't matter. They have Team Leads trained to watch others and bully staff to keep them under control. Very demeaning to work here. Be prepared to tuck your tail and not think independently. Must be able to handle degrading comments to keep this job. No growth opportunities. Once you are in you are not able to transfer within unless you know someone. Lots of family here not good they advance. Directors allow mistreatment as long as money is made. They have lost lots of good people employed for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be replaced with a human with a heart. Demeaning employees is not in any organization necessary and needs to stop.
