    Pros

    profit sharing for employees, matching retirement

    Cons

    Not enough African American nurses

    Advice to Management

    Consider recruiting more African American nurses. African American nurses in the community complaining that they were not given the opportunity to care for pediatric patients and have to move out of the area if they want to have a career as a pediatric nurse

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people, happy place. I enjoy being at work everyday. Management shows concerns about staff. It's been a good experience.

    Cons

    Location. Corpus Christi is a small city. It has everything but if you like big cities, then you may not like it. Austin and Houston are close by though.

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

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits and a great cause.

    Cons

    Marketing Department is very restrictive -- no one-on-one involvement with community organizations allowed. Not allowed more than 1 hour for lunch -- regardless. Management insisted on knowing your location at every minute. No privacy -- walls are very thin and all conversations could be heard by your neighbor.

    Advice to Management

    Please see above.

    Pros

    Knowing your making a difference in helping the medical staff with their daily assessments.

    Cons

    Supervisor and management show lack of recognition for everything you do and never show gratitude for doing more than your job title is only allowed.

    Advice to Management

    You can really make a difference if you would just make a stand and suggest that pay is too low for some techs that provide more then others
