    Pros

    It is an amazing place to work! I absolutely love my job functions. I wish they allowed good employees more chances to advance within the hospital.

    Cons

    When you are in one department, you don't have the ability to move around and learn the others. You become narrow minded and it's hard to get out of a department if it's not for you.

    Advice to Management

    More leadership classes and have an internal job listing for internal applications first. More people are interested in positions they don't know are out there.

    I worked at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    pay, benefits were ok. Some of my peers were kind, hardworking people. Others were some of the cruelest I have ever met.

    Cons

    Senior management is rude and cruel. They are like a mafia. If you are in, you are great. If not, you're black balled. The Human Resources team is also nasty and are not helpful. When trying to help an employee, they were unhelpful and only focused on what I and the employee were doing wrong in their opinion. Employee relations is basically senior management relations. If you are referred to them, you're toast. Most of the nurses that are high up have been there for 20+ years, don't do their work and are extremely unpleasant to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Get some new blood. When the CEO is the highest paid in a hospital in the country, that's a problem because this is Kansas City!
