    Amazing providers, Patients, Families. Most certainly one of the most humbling experiences I have ever had the privilege to experience. Pay is fair, benefits are decent and PTO is generous. Loved my job.

    Cons

    lack communication, truthfulness, no room for growth and managers that are lose lipped about everyone and everything. No appreciation for those who are truly committed to children’s.

    Advice to Management

    Communication, Appreciation and respect for all employees. Support and value all employees that Perform consistly and represent your “mission statement” always putting children and their families first. Review, educate and retrain your managers.

    Pros

    Fantastic doctors and PNPs.

    Cons

    Ambulatory Clinics poorly managed. Clinics are run by staff lacking the education to do the job effectively. Consistently staffed at unsafe levels to provide adequate patient care. High employee turnover and no appreciation for longtime staff. Break structure is in violation of labor laws.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in hiring and training appropriate management for clinic sites. Reward loyalty. Address lack of appropriate breaks.

    I worked at Children's Minnesota full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Children's has a great mission and does a lot of good things for the community and children

    Cons

    Leadership at this organization is lacking integrity, experience and general knowledge of business growth and development of employees. Lots of preference toward leaders who have been at the organization for a long time, not a lot of interest in new ideas or different opinions. Bias based on diversity of ideas that do not 'fit' with Children's way.

    Advice to Management

    Replace those in upper management, who have too much power (ie Human Resource reporting) and lacks the general experience to lead an organization.

    I worked at Children's Minnesota part-time

    Pros

    Competitive pay, variety of shifts, fairly easy to swap/exchange

    Cons

    Poor management. Older employees get away with poor attitude and being rude and management gives the excuse of “that’s just how they are”. Many employees believe in a “hierarchy” that gives them an excuse to treat people who they think are “lower” than them poorly even though education wise they certainly are not. No urge from management to actually change things or take suggestions into consideration

    Pros

    A great cause - helping sick children

    Cons

    Total lack of communication in upper level management, lack of sensitivity to those in administrative roles.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue - concentrate on healing kids instead of trying to monopolize the children's healthcare industry. Act like it's a vocation and not just a business.

    I worked at Children's Minnesota full-time

    Pros

    It's wonderful to work with kids. Great surgeons and great anesthesiologists

    Cons

    Horribly short staffed. In equitable case assignments. A lot of "favoritism" within the department. A small group of favorites do very few cases while the rest of the staff are always in busy rooms. Feels like Junior High.

    Advice to Management

    Create an equitable environment.
