    I have been working at Children's Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere and pay.

    Cons

    Heavy on paperwork, meetings and excessive management. Sometimes forgets that care should come first.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pushing increased education and management on all employees and recognize employees for their ability to perform and care for patients instead of what their college resume looks like. Accept that you need great nurses that want to take care of patients. Not every nurse wants to sit behind a desk.

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

    Pros

    Great teamwork across departments, from the doctors to the nurses, the emergency dept to the ORs and ICUs. Everyone is on the same page when it comes to the hospital mission.

    It’s connection to UTSW makes it a great teaching hospital as well.

    Cons

    Politics easily affected morale, a lot of staff felt overworked, under appreciated. Benefits aren’t what they used to be. Currently have Cigna, which is only a slight step above Atena.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t forget to thank your staff.

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

    Pros

    I like the happy environment

    Cons

    Reached my 6 months and it’s really hard to transfer. I thought that since I was internal the process would be easier. When you reach out to an recruiter some respond and others don’t. I was told that even though the job that I’m applying to is the same thing I do in another clinic managers want bilingual people.

    Advice to Management

    Re-examine leader roles
