    I have been working at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    LOVE working with kids. Children's Mercy once was a wonderful place to work, but over the last few years things have changed drastically and for the worst.

    Cons

    Horrible management who do not understand medicine and require staff to take on unsafe workloads and do unsafe things despite evidence based practice. Bullying from doctor to nurse and nurse to nurse is tolerated, and it is an all around very unhealthy work environment.

    Pros

    Co-workers. Probably because you know you're all in the leaking boat together.

    Cons

    Everything else. The pay is well below even the lowest of market rates (unless you're in a speciality field with a lot of grant funding) - to the point, employees with small children regularly use Medicaid in lieu of the cost of CMH's insurance. The benefits are average, at best. Working anywhere but at the Main hospital immediately makes you "inferior" and last, but certainly not least, their management practices are straight out of Mad Men! From the CEO down, the only thing CMH is good for is if you kid gets really, really, really sick.

    Advice to Management

    Not to management - to the Board. Fire all leadership and start over!

    I worked at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    NONE. There are 0 pros to working for this Hospital's Laboratory.

    Cons

    In terms of the Laboratory at Children's Mercy, add 1 hour on to your day to ride a shuttle bus to and from your car, take 15 minutes out of your break time just to walk to the cafeteria, and every time you need to use a restroom wait at 30 minutes and fight off at least 5 co workers for a place to have a waz. This facility has the worst laboratory I have ever seen, because of its design and because of the monstrous people working in it. On top of poor design, there are too many PHDs MDs and Managers at this lab and not enough people actually doing productive work, especially in "core lab" hematology and chemistry departments. I have never seen such an intense concentration of workplace sharks in my life. There are too many foreign born people working for this laboratory and many of them have not assimilated to US culture and/or they are the type of people who view their cultural heritage as superior to that of natural born American citizens. This is an extremely hard place to make friends and approach management about anything for fear of offending someone of a particular "demographic." I would not work for this lab if they paid me a million dollars an hour, I would not recommend my worst enemy work for this lab, and I would certainly not recommend anybody have any business transactions with this lab or any other lab which perpetuates workplace misery on such an inconceivable level.

    Advice to Management

    CLOSE THIS LAB NOW! And outsource all your lab work to Labcorp or Quest or any other accredited reference lab, these corporate businesses do it better andmore professionally than all of the staff at CMH labs COMBINED, and for a cheaper price too.
