        I have been working at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Good work environment with flexibility (work from home available 2 days/week), a team who really does care about each other, and job security.

        Cons

        Many "lifers" are set in their old way of doing things. It's difficult to realize efficiencies or get buy in to new ideas. Very political, and often those who are promoted have tenure /seniority, but not the skills for the job. Not truly a technology driven company; often chasing our tails and it comes back to bite us.

        Advice to Management

        Start embracing change and new ideas that will drive us towards a more innovative future. Stop promoting people who push papers around and don't truly add value; consider promoting folks who are truly passionate about their work and help make a difference on a daily basis. Start telling the clinicians no, and don't be afraid to do so when it's in the best interest of the organization and our system's integrity / standardization.

        Cons

        - HR is inefficient and does not try to retain current employees - Some departments have a big divide between the administrative sides and the clinical side - high turnover in certain areas - poor integration with Emory; it is mostly in paper but implementation is subpar - Cannot match other Children's hospital because of the lack of research - depends on Emory to do the research and they fail to understand that all other...

        Advice to Management

        - If you want to run the hospital like a private business, please pay the employees like the private sector. - Administration in each department should have both management and clinical experience. Some clinicians don't understand that you cannot manage a hospital like a small private clinic; and some managers don't understand that you cannot operate a hospital like management consulting firm. - run the hospital for the...
