      Pros

      Team-based work culture with coworkers who genuinely care about the kiddos and one another. Great place to learn new things! Physicians are also great and work together well with RN staff. Hospital has no tolerance for abuse to staff (although most of the time families are great and a pleasure to work with!) Lots of opportunities to get involved on the units like joining committees.

      Cons

      Pay isn't bad if you're a 12 hour worker because of differentials. Base pay is below average for the area though. My main complaint is the abysmal amount of PTO which can lead to burnout quickly. Lately, we have had a major nursing assistant shortage as well as they leave and are not being replaced. Not a union hospital which has pros and cons in and of itself

      Feels great to work just for the patients

      Pros

      Able to serve the most vulnerable population which are the kids and babies. Staff have so much passion for the patients. Amazing co-workers.

      Cons

      Organization only values certain sections of the organization. Where I currently work, existing positions are not being replaced so staff are stressed out due to shortage and are stretched out to the max. Upper leadership only cares about how much cost they can cut so that it will look good to the organization's senior leadership not realizing that people at workforce and bench people are being sacrificed. i understand it is COVID but these positions were already existing pre-pandemic, they are not new positions.
