    I have been working at Children's Health full-time

    Pros

    Children's has a great mission to make life better for children. It has great people who want to make a difference.

    Cons

    Leadership is very disconnected. Very top heavy and leaders have lost touch with the mission. It's all business and many leaders lack integrity especially at the Irving health plan location. It's do as I say not as I do. Use fear tactics to deal with employees.

    Advice to Management

    Reassess your mission and reconnect to why you do what you do.

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

    Pros

    Reasonably good pay, decent benefits, vacation time etc.. Pension plan killed now only a 403K. I can only address the IT department.

    Cons

    LOTS of IT staff coming & going. Generally a good company that totally fails to police its managers! HR is a toothless tiger does zero for reports of hostile work environment, unfair treatment, abuse. HR told me they "sometimes" do exit interviews with departing employees. Only given option with manager problems was to appeal AFTER being fired! Saw many 5-10 or more year employees depart. Seems like no one cares or notices the turnover. LOTS of "re-orgs" usually shifting same core of poor managers around. Good work is not appreciated or rewarded. Annual employee opinion surveys are a joke. No matter how bad the survey the same managers remain year after year. No real career paths. Work/Life balance is unimportant to your management. "GOOD" Managers/ Directors don't hang around for long... If you are a young & sharp IT person go elsewhere...you won't want to stay at Childrens.

    Advice to Management

    You NEED 100% exit interviews, You NEED to know WHY are employees leaving? Why are long time employees leaving? You NEED to police/control your managers. Multiple complaints to HR should elicit some investigation & action from the company. You are losing GOOD employees! You are losing LOTS of money finding/hiring/losing new employees. Does ANYBODY care?

    Plano Campus is a great, friendly, and peaceful campus.
