    I worked at Children's of Alabama full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Positive work culture, focus is on the patients, hospital is growing at a rapid rate, CEO is friendly and accessible

    Cons

    Hospital is averse to change, provide a lot of support and attention to nurses and doctors but not support staff

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage current culture, but look at ways to support your other staff (especially the ones that aren't on the "front line" with patients) as they may not feel as appreciated (which hurts morale).
