    I have been working at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    This hospital has so much potential and you can tell that the staff truly believe patient care comes first. I have worked within this facility, but in different positions, for more than 8 years. Everyone you run into is friendly and always willing to help you.

    Cons

    Management can be on or off. I have had some amazing supervisors and I have had some novice management that could use some management education, but overall I do not see a lot of cons working here.

    I have been working at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin full-time

    Pros

    Love working for a place that helps so many children. Love the staff (co-workers) and the actual work. Benefits and pay are comparable.

    Cons

    Leadership is horrible. There is no respect for staff. Most don't even take the time to understand what staff are capable of. We are hired as experts in our field, but not involved in any of the decisions. Many poor choices are made without input from the experts and the experts then pay the price for those poor choices. Most leadership is highly unavailable which only leads to more frustration. In the past year there have been a large number of firings. Morale is at an all time low and turnover is increasing. Leadership does not seem to mind the turnover, just less staff to deal with. Work life balance is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to value your employees. Making all the decisions without your team does not promote ownership or value. Leading by fear is not leading.

    I worked at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CHW uses some of the best analytics platforms in the healthcare industry and they pay to train their employees on these platforms.

    Cons

    Analytics Management doesn't trust their employees, they have limited experience in the field, and they make poor decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, support them, and continue to improve in your own leadership training.
