    I have been working at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    CMH is great for letting you build your skills as well as producing new skills. The work environment as a whole is pretty good. Working for a children's hospital is pretty satisfying. If you use Healthcare a lot it is a good benefit, otherwise you're paying a lot for not much in return. Flexible work hours, decent pto, sick leave, etc.

    Cons

    There are some old management styles that need updating and it lacks the umph to want to improve processes. Things move very slowly and are hard to get things changed. You cannot work from home. You must take Pto to do anything and on holidays

    Advice to Management

    Update your styles. New generations are coming into the work place. Allow IT to work from home on days they aren't feeling well but don't need to take a sick day.

    Pros

    Good work culture. Fast paced. I enjoyed the work I was doing.

    The amount of call was much higher than expected. I was called in every shift and completed several screens each night.

    The downtown location needs a fulltime second shift mental health screener since it is so busy.
