    I worked at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Children’s is a great place to work. The benefits,flexibility in schedule and the education they provide are excellent. They also really appreciate their nurses. Best of all are the patients.

    Cons

    The requirements for your yearly CAN review to maintain your RN level are the same for part time as full time makes I’d difficult to participate in meetings if you are not already working that day. To commute in for a meeting on a day off takes a large portion of your day for a one hour meeting when you have a long commute.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to appreciate your employees and the work life balance.

    I have been working at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love working for this company. They do really seem to care about their employees and have many benefits that make them stellar including a good retirement plan, insurance, and activities to promote health and wellness. They do hire from within and focus on professional development. As a nurse they have safe staffing levels and competitive hourly rates compared to other hospitals in the area given my experience. Plus the bonus of working with children helps!

    Cons

    Some of the cases can be sad- especially when a child has a terrible illness. Other downsides are those associated with normal hospital problems- having stock available, personality clashes, difference of opinion. Mostly though if you are honest you get honest feedback and they are supportive as much as they can be.

    Pros

    CHOA invests a lot of time and resources on Professional Development of its employees. I constantly feel like I am growing and being molded to succeed in a higher role. I look forward to growing further within this company, as I have already had the opportunity to do so in just 2 years.

    Cons

    With 2 large campuses, a central support park, and many satellite locations, it can sometimes be difficult to develop strong professional relationships with your peers.
