    1. 5.0
      Current Employee, more than 5 years

      Cares about patients and employees but hard to progress

      Pros

      I am not in patient care and this may depend on the managers but I feel like Lurie offers great work life balance. And it is amazing to see so many people come together to help take care of very sick kids.

      Cons

      There are not many opportunities for promotion within departments and people usually have to jump to different departments or leave. Also, it is probably not any worse than other hospitals or healthcare in general but projects move so slow and can sometimes be boring.

      Pros

      Lurie Children's does amazing things for sick kids and families.

      Cons

      No room for growth. I personally went to HR a few times because I wanted my career to advance here and they all told me no or that I wasn't a fit. I always had amazing reviews and was recognized by peers so I found this odd. THere are many people in management positions who SHOULD NOT BE! Unprofessional practices, personal attacks and basically left to manage yourself. No leadership, high turnover and just a hostile work environment.

      Pros

      Not everyday is the same, great people work there. Good benefits.

      Cons

      Horrible PTO policy, they combine sick time with regular pto. You don't have the choice whether or not you want to use your personal time off they automatically use it.
