    Pros

    The mission of the hospital is unbeatable--helping the most critical children heal and thrive is amazing!

    Cons

    I can't speak for all positions, but my benefits do not "include" holidays. If I am not scheduled on a holiday it comes out of my vacation time. Also, if I am sick, I must use two days' vacation time until my sick time can be used. It is a very disappointing policy that makes our time-off benefits appear greater than they are and can be detrimental during flu season. If we happen to catch the "CMH crud" several times over during the extremely contagious flu season, our vacation time is decreased by many days, causing imbalance in the work-life balance that CMH endorses.

    Advice to Management

    Revise your time-off policy to separate minor illness and "vacation". No one considers a minor illness a "vacation" day.

    A company that pays well with fair management that will let you do your job and not ride you on the small stuff.

    Cons

    Although there are many pros, management wise as well as departmental, communication can be a major problem.

    Management does a fantastic job keeping the main objective of helping others always the top priority.

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

    Pros

    Felt great about doing what we could to help the children in our facility to recover and return to a normal life.

    Cons

    Micro managed, managers did not come to the working staff for input on changes being made in order to be sure that what was being changed was actually a practical answer

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people when they try to advise possible issues changes might cause and when those changes started and caused the issues that were discussed requesting staff to clean up the mess they tried to avoid be understanding at their frustration

    Pros

    Excellent place to work. Really want to do the best for kids. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot. Can be a little bit more academic in focus but not such a huge downside.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Don't lose focus of what's important.

    Pros

    Your experience will vary depending on your area however I would recommend CMH due to the benefits, culture, and PTO that they provide.

    Cons

    Like anywhere else this size, many projects end up lost in various silos

    Advice to Management

    Do more to help foster the development of the next upper management group(s)

    Pros

    - the people. they love their jobs and have a heart for the patients and mission of children's mercy. very kind and caring people

    Cons

    - a little corporate, and as always, the red tape of working in hospitals can become annoying, but they help you navigate
    - work can be repetitive and not that creative

    Pros

    Great coworkers and teamwork, generally a happy place to work, getting to work with kids, doctors respect the nurses

    Cons

    Immediate supervisors don't seem to really care if you succeed at your job or not unless it affects their bottom line. I don't feel I can approach them about anything and if I need their help with something, I don't expect anything to be done for a couple weeks. Frustrating not being able to trust your boss.
