    I have been working at Children's Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Helping families with sick children is why I stay

    Cons

    Too much gossip. Lack of respect among peers. Toxic and stressful. Management soft and do not follow policy or make ridiculous policy. Senior leaders oblivious to floor level happenings. Turnover very high. I've seen a lot in my years there and the quality of employment is at it's worst. Morale is low. No one feels appreciated. Internal transfers not easy or impossible. Loyal employees with longevity are not well taken care of or appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Get a backbone. Hire quality people, not warm bodies. Third party, professional management consulting. Need help.

    Pros

    Good pay, great co-workers, average benefits

    Cons

    Management is bad, Upper management worse, poor performance is tolerated if you are favorited, bullying prevails as does gossip. it is toxic. Horrible management, they don't care about the team, very high turnover. Morale is waning.

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul the entire management team, bring in consultants to manage from the outside. The department is adversely affecting the mission statement. I feel bad for the people left behind.
