    The vacation and sick package benefits is the worst I have had in my career. You have to stay with the organization for 5 year or more to start accumulating decent vacation days.

    Excellent PTO accrual! Within 3 months of working with the company I have already accrued 30 hours of PTO

    When my child was out of school sick for a week, my manager told me to take PTO. She is in HR! For a place dedicated to taking care of sick kids, I expected some compassion and a lot better treatment!

    Employees in roles below manager-level don't get sick days. They have to take PTO.

    Best - personal days allowed Worst - somewhat slow accrual

    No sick leave, no personal days, no paid maternity leave..... Everything is rolled into one PTO lump sum, which if you're just starting out is only 5 hours per pay period. People have doctors appointments, sick children, business errands, etc to do. People have lives outside of this stressful job. Yet for being the "number one children's hospital in the nation", they surely don't take proper care of their employees' physical and mental healthcare.

    I wish there was a sick leave plan. I get very little PTO hours per pay period. I became very ill this year and was hospitalized for a week and put on bed rest for 3 weeks. I missed a month total of work. I had to use every single hour of PTO I had slaved for plus go on short term leave (which is a great part of the benefits--zero complaints there), then when I came back, I couldn't go on the vacation I had worked, planned for over a year and paid for. We all work incredibly hard and should be able to use our PTO for something besides being sick. I can't help being sick, and working in a hospital it's practically inevitable. I've only been able to take 2 real vacation in 2 years; I have worked Code Whites, and every major holiday multiple times. I'm a hard worker and time off should not be so stressful or anxiety producing.
