    I worked at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for the Scottish Rite location at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. I really did love my job. They offer benefits, discounts, and there is a great concierge service where you can receive discounted tickets for special events, museums, and other attractions. Very flexible with your schedule. Company culture is fantastic. Coworkers become like family over time. Get to work with patients and their families. Babies!!

    Cons

    Can be short staffed, which leads to you feeling possibly overworked. Usually gets busy around flu season. Prone to get sick easily.

    Advice to Management

    Pay higher wages to those that work in the non clinical areas as well, this will definitely help with the high turnover rate.(I.e. Food service workers, EVS workers, etc.) Listen to the concerns of your employees more attentively.

    Pros

    Great benefits, hours, the work is not too hard, some nice people there.

    Cons

    Sensitive crowd–lot of unnecessary drama. Not diverse enough. Non-profit salary, so you're not there for the money.

    Pros

    Great company to work for overall. Great benefits, incentives, and work life balance

    Cons

    Management is terrible! management should never be able to hire on friends or people they've worked with in previous departments/companies. Cliques and gossip shouldn't take over professionalism. Needs some diversity. Pay isn't all that.

    Advice to Management

    Have an open door policy without repercussions.

    Pros

    The great things they do for kids

    Cons

    Employee favoritism is rampant in the organization and ideas that don't fit their mold aren't tolerated. This is made more difficult by the fact CHOA is the only pediatric outfit in town.

    Advice to Management

    Get control of your middle management. Hiring friends into positions of leadership should never be allowed. Embrace new ideas instead of driving out employees who refuse to blindly agree with the organization.
