    Pros

    Children's is a great place to work. The team work is great. Management really listen to staff. They understand that everyone has a family and work around that.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that the insurance is not very good. Many are not happy with it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    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.
