    They have a great culture and it is the best place I have ever worked. They go above and beyond for their employees.

    Pros

    Generous benefits and PTO, work-life balance, opportunity for growth, genuinely cares for the community they serve and their employees

    I worked at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a great organization, but...

    Cons

    Working in HR at Children’s is like trying to fit in with the mean girls in high school. A certain "look" is required. If you are a young, attractive runner who wears designer clothes, you will be fine. Large gals need not apply.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people based on their merits, not looks and then treat them fairly.

    I have been working at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta full-time

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and benefits; great atmosphere to work in every day, talented coworkers and supportive management

    Cons

    If you get promoted, your new salary will be based on a moderate increase from your previous salary, not on the market rate for the job you are promoted to.

    Advice to Management

    Pay internal promotions as much as external hires. You will save on training costs and eliminate acclamation periods since they already work for you.
