    I have been working at Children's Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and availability for growth.

    Cons

    CHPG clinics have started to make too many changes that are "good for the patient" but they over working doctors, NPs, MAs and front desk. The work load is too much and they don't want to compensate for all the work we do. I feel like CHPG is losing many great employees due to these changes.

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

    Pros

    Great kids, great pay. Lots of valuable experience and I'm proud to say I work for Children's. Decent benefits and overall a pretty good job. Excellent care for the kiddos.

    Cons

    Not the most comfortable job I've ever had. Big learning curve working with only kids (not much guidance). Lots and lots and lots of red tape. Some issues between staff members that can make it a little hard to feel like you belong. Some problems with mid mgmt being out of touch.

    Advice to Management

    Reexamine those in leadership.

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

    Pros

    Getting to work with children and seeing their face is what I worked for.

    Cons

    Management has their favorites it is very segregated on some floors. No communication at all. The people that has their position shouldn't have it when you are miserable everyday.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't like your job or your employees LEAVE stop coming in everyday angry. Hire RN that knows what they are doing not someone who doesn't have compassion.

    Pros

    Fellow employees are great to work with. Work environment is great. Lots of talented and dedicated people. The work is meaningful and rewarding.

    Cons

    Leadership doesn’t support employee development or develop their internal talent and high achievers. Lots of layoffs in 2016-2017 led to employee demoralization. Poor communication from leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication with your employees
    Show that you care about your employees!
