Incredible top-notch doctors and extremely smart nurses that deserve the best. Truly non-toxic staff on the business side as well, including the departmental nurses. Doctors are eager to help and have good intentions - they are not motivated by money. Beautiful hospital. The kids are treated amazing and the hospital has so many benefits for families, and always prioritizes unique needs and extenuating circumstances for children/family. For every issue, such as helping sick children's siblings assimilate to frequent visits and less attention, they have thought of everything and have went above and beyond in the services they offer. It really is the best clinically speaking. Departmental physician leaders are also wonderful, including the supervisors.
Supervisors are not often promoted to department management instead of outside hires who have business degrees yet have never worked a day in a hospital or medical group. This puts the workload on supervisors, as they are the only ones who understand how to navigate first-hand scheduling challenges, clinic challenges, staff challenges etc. The hospital rewards and also promotes managers that have poor retention rates and are not good at managing people, but pretend they are or make the department a lot of money. Just because someone is good with spreadsheets and reaching KPIs does not mean they should be managing PEOPLE. Only pays the APPs and physicians well. They never pay enough to the employees which are severely underpaid compared to the surrounding hospitals, including northwestern. Bonuses are terrible. They also don't recognize some departments having much harder job duties/more demanding work/and higher work-loads, and expect you to perform 3x more work than someone in the same role, in a different department, who has nowhere near the volume, patient load, or case load as the other departments, and to be happy and not complain. They also pay those people the same. You are expected to maintain that impossible workload, and to not complain, ask for help too many times, or even ask to arrive earlier, stay later, or work through lunch to not get behind - setting you up for failure from the beginning. If you clock in more than 3 min early and clock out more than 3 min late, you are reprimanded.They treat PTO, FMLA, and bereavement similarly. There are no passes or extenuating circumstances, and managers will look down on you for taking time off or falling behind, even when you ask for help or propose ways to combat it. They do not respect mental health whatsoever here either, although they preach it for the children and provide therapy DURING the working day for the physicians that are struggling with social issues etc. It's a very greedy, money-hungry and money-focused place for those that are non-clinical.

I have been fortunate enough to work alongside some of the hardest-working and kind people I've ever met.
The compensation isn't reflective of the average for similar job titles within my field.

Super personable, caring, friendly environment where you are cared for as an individual and not just a number. Excellent pay and benefits. Excellent work life balance. Great management and coworkers.
Not always opportunities to rise up

Outstanding organization mission, and commitment to clinical care and community health. Strong research programs, great individuals and clinical teams dedicated to pediatric healthcare.
Inconsistent quality in leaders, job equity, and job structure across teams and locations. Top down management styles can impede team development.
