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

    Pros

    Great company culture, simply the best place to work in pediatrics in the region. The atmosphere really makes it great, because everyone that's there has a common goal of being the best pediatric healthcare provider around. The upper management are visible to everyone, even if they aren't approachable. Great opportunity for education reimbursement when you want to further your career.

    Cons

    Poor mid-level management in the nursing departments. Big corporate attitude about sticking with personnel policies by some management, then others allow some wiggle room. You never know what you will get with your manager. Pay scale is well known to be below the market for the area, but staff put up with it just to be able to work in the premier pediatric organization in the area.

    Advice to Management

    The big company attitude when it comes to understanding your employee's work-life balance doesn't help your employees feel valued. Neither does the poor pay for nursing staff, and I'm sure other departments. Bring your pay up, increase options for work-life balance, then you will have an employer of choice and a top-notch healthcare organization. Research is overwhelming when it shows that great patient care starts with nursing job satisfaction.

    Pros

    Employees matter at Children's Mercy. They take very good care of those who choose to work for them. Benefits are top notch and they also offer education reimbursement. Overall, a great place to work--no matter which department you choose. Very low drama--overly dramatic people are either "coached up or coached out"--

    Cons

    There are no cons. Sometimes it's hard to get your foot in the door--but just keep applying. It's worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Kindness, respect, fairness--all qualities that matter. I've always had this no matter which department I've worked for.

    Pros

    Highly qualified people most of the time. The work environment and room to advance your learning is very favorable. A family atmosphere exists most places.

    Cons

    Organization has grown too big, too fast. Accountability has taken a hit and too many people are comfortable in their spots.

    Advice to Management

    It is beginning to look like our actions do not fit the mission. Holding up positions that care for patients while hiring more managers is not a good business move.
