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

    Pros

    To serve my community and to help children. Decent pay for my position and what I do. Sometimes a flexible schedule. Good PTO.

    Cons

    No work from home opportunities at this time, when it is definitely possible. Pay could be better. Favoritism and office gossip. Direct manager could be more empathetic and compassionate. Can be hard to take off since its a small team. Only otj training for a few days and then thrown right into it. Upper level management has been fired and some quit. Job security is in question for the department.

    Advice to Management

    Make more flexible schedules and work from home an option.
