    I worked at Children's Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Still has good benefits as far as 401(k) and PTO. Nurse pay better than any other hospital in DFW! Lot's of great people to work with!

    Cons

    Horrid health insurance, female dominated culture with massive "girl" cronyism. A CEO that takes in excess of 5 million out a not-for-profit and despite the media departments claims, doesn't have any "vision" which is displayed in the organizations complete lack of presence in the highly profitable standalone ER market, and a now closed specialty center out in the boonies of Southlake, TX. Favoritism typically overrules qualifications when promotions are considered. The rebranding to "Children's Health" left a lot of people in the community wondering what "Children's Health" is...

    Advice to Management

    Bring in the consultants or read the news. You're glacial pace to compete with the Medical City and Cook Children's brand will not net a positive result. Try hiring clinical managers from the outside to "clean house" on the units.

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

    Pros

    I loved working in the ICU. It was stressful but it was very rewarding to help families and staff on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Management seem to care more about numbers than patient care. Also letting you go without proof of something you where accused if doing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees majority are parents as well and have experience Children's from a employee and parent level. Also if you let someone go from there job don't block them from getting employment elsewhere because we still have to provide for our family. I was let go and because Children's out 3 WORDS on my group one has stopped me from getting other positions and to be hones it was unfair to be let go over hearsay.
