    Pros

    Children's Health is a very educational environment--you learn something new every day!

    Cons

    The schedule (rotating 12 hour shifts) and administration making changes to patient care without consulting providers and nurses.

    Advice to Management

    Please discuss practice changes with staff that interact directly without patients prior to enacting the changes.

    Pros

    Taking care of the patients. This will always be what Children's is. The best Children's hospital in town

    Cons

    Taking away the Children's parade is just wrong. I have participated in the parade for 28 years. It is sad to take a Dallas tradition out of downtown. It will never be the same!

    Advice to Management

    too may chiefs, unfortunately

    I worked at Children's Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will learn a lot here. You see everything in the Pedi population. Very fast paced. Lots of different areas to work in.

    Cons

    Management has changed lately and what used to be a fun place to work is no longer. Be ready for heavy assignments.

    Advice to Management

    Add more staff and not be a punitive environment. Support your new therapists instead of eating them alive. make assignments equal.

    I worked at Children's Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic teams and coworkers. Love my floors and people I work with. EPIC system.

    Cons

    "Budget Recovery" take from staff to pay for "name change" and other upper level decisions.
    "Have the Nurse's do it" mentality. Cut PCT and HUC positions because nurses can make the coffee, answer phones, prepare pt paperwork, all while doing our standard jobs such as: watching IVs with hourly rounding, and make sure patient satisfaction is up with education AND of course, chart EVERYTHING (don't forget) but don't stay late to do it!
    Oh AND now breathing treatments, so the RT department isn't spread so "thin."
    Sorry, but I'd rather take the time to make sure my families understand their plan of care, medications, and take time at discharge to ensure they understand the delivery of care to avoid readmissions!

    Advice to Management

    Look for other places to cut your budget. We need our support staff.

    I have been working at Children's Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally okay place if you don't mind being a cog but if you really want to make a difference this is not the best place, too stuck on "this is how we have always done it" mentality. Decent pto accrual, does count as public service so student loan payoff opportunities if you can last that long. Decent 401k & 403b.

    Cons

    Not many career advancement opportunities, pay & benefits aren't great, rigid hospital schedule so not a great work/life balance, poor goal based raises, overall really stressful environment with little incentive. Will lose your position if out for medical reasons longer than FMLA allows. Too corporate, busy work annual goals on top of regular duties, nothing comes out of daily stand ups or quarterly rounding & rarely anything improving comes of them mostly a gripe fest. Overly praising for doing regular job duties and too much brown nose worshipping. Above & beyond is always expected but only for a pat on the back then it is expected. Basically a hen house; things might be better in 5-10 years once older generation has retired or full automation takes over.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting employee benefits because it looks good on paper. Decreased shift differential & poor health insurance is not made up for with periodic free t-shirts, food and knowing we are making a difference in a child's life. Great talent requires more incentive than this to stick around for the long haul. Show your employees you appreciate them with something more substantial i.e. Better salaries, shift diff, raises & bonuses or better schedules and more PTO.

    I have been working at Children's Health part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay as a patient care technician is great (I'm a nursing student). Also, it's a huge blessing getting experience on the floors as a tech, while being able to work prn, since nursing school requires a very minimal and flexible job. I can work as little as 1 shift every pay period, but also as much as 3-4 shifts a week and make overtime pay. I work with the clinical resource team, so I float to many different units. Most of the nurses I work with are fantastic, the patients and families are great, and my days are productive and usually fast-paced. My team leads are great, and I love my coworkers.

    Cons

    Clinical care is hard work. That's just part of the job. Occasionally I work with nurses or other techs who aren't helpful and create more work rather than less, but you would find that anywhere and that is not the norm.
