    I worked at Texas Children's Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Benefits the health of children!

    Cons

    Upper level management does not listen to lower level employees concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to employees concerns, especially Human Resources! IF there is a manager that has a number of complaints about they need to review the manager for more in depth reason for the issues and do something about it and not just say you are going to do something.

    I worked at Texas Children's Hospital as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked as a Help Desk Intern with the Genesys Works program, and had an amazing experience. The employees were extremely nice and helpful. I had a very valuable work experience there.

    Cons

    My manager was quite tough, but I believe it was because I was a high school student and he wanted to ensure that I contributed fully at all times. Other than that, I don´t have any complaints.

    I worked at Texas Children's Hospital

    Pros

    salary is good. the location is good. and the company does things to hlep low skilled workers achieve more that just being bousekeepers.

    Cons

    if you are not in leadership then do not expect to advance. the compnay likes to hire from within so expect to come in and start at the bottom.

    A great idea poorly executed. The hospital has an abysmal safety and patient satisfaction record, but great marketing

    I have been working at Texas Children's Hospital

    Pros

    The mission of healing children is unquestionable

    Cons

    The culture is:
    * What makes the CEO look good? All else is forbidden
    * No bad news!
    * bad benefits
    * executives who grew up there and know nothing else - NOTHING else!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire and let the adults take over. Hospitals aren't the charity-playgrounds of the wealthy anymore. Philanthropy will give way to transparency, and you can't handle that! It'll belie all your pretty billboards!

    Pros

    1 Great coworkers!
    2. Decent benefits

    Cons

    Horrible management (they call themselves leadership) in Information Services
    Long hours working on equipment that should have been upgraded or replace long ago.
    Management does not allow down time on anything vital, causing the network and security equipment to be largely out of date. Including bad patch management.
    Employees are treated with no respect.
    A lot of the managers and director are bullies that constantly threaten the employees.
    Employees are not allowed to attend training.
    HR treats employees like chattel.
    Very poor adherence to federal and state regulatory requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the current crop of VP's, Directors and about half of the managers as they are running the place into the ground. Go back to the core values of Texas Childrens Hospital that seems to have been lost at some point.
    After seeing how they operate, I would never take my child to that hospital again.

    I have been working at Texas Children's Hospital full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay
    Flexible schedules available
    Nice buildings

    Cons

    Lack of communication between leadership and staff
    Managers seldom see or speak to their employees
    Little opportunity for advancement
    Hiring of more very highly paid consultants who 'build and run' leaving staff to clean up their messes
    Loss of key staff due to poor management
    Remote workers in other cities (and on campus) who aren' t pulling their weight
    Parking nearby is expensive and off-campus parking option adds 20 minutes to your commute each way
    TCH isn't sending staff to Wisconsin for certification

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees. Cut down on the number of meetings you schedule to speak to each other and schedule some with your staff. Stop canceling staff meetings to attend more leadership meetings. Ask your employees for their suggestions and opinions before you hire more consultants or change key vendors.

    Figure out why you can't hire anyone local and fix it. Follow up on job offers made to local people who refuse them and find out where we're going wrong. Do surveys of the local job pool asking why they aren't considering TCH.

    Get people out of the closets you've stuffed them into and put teams together. It's hard to act as a team when you never see any team members.

    Allow employees time at work to study for certification
    Support study groups for certification and proficiencies
