    I have been working at Children's National Health System full-time

    Pros

    Has a few select providers in the organization that are innovators at patient care.

    Cons

    This entire organization has a systemic problem for being stuck in the now and is resistant to positive change. Leadership (clinical and administrative) prevent innovation and don't' work to see the large picture or really work to drive success. Directors and above do not trust their employees to make decisions. Projects are never completed on time and are rarely successful when they are completed. There are many other pediatric hospitals that are on the cutting edge with better medical and financial practices.

    I worked at Children's National Health System full-time

    Pros

    Knowing that your work contributes to the service of ailing children and families and those seeking medical care.

    Cons

    It is an unorganized company. Many departments have a revolving door because of the poor employee satisfaction. There is a lack of accountability for seeing that employees are treated well. It seems there's a focus on the hospitals accolades and rewards perhaps because that's what contributes to the bottom line. Yet, the inner organization and functions of the departments, employees, and how work gets done seems to be an afterthought.
