    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

    I have been working at Driscoll Children's Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good teamwork, a medical-surgical hospital with different cases that will help you learn more, individual performance-based salary increase, more of patient safety, skilled nurses, doctors and other allied health workers, very accommodating to parents with sick child, nurse-patient ratio is acceptable at most part, no contract when hired.

    Cons

    getting floated to other areas

    Advice to Management

    to ask the bedside nurses regarding review of charge nurses performance in the unit

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

    Pros

    Employees genuinely seemed more positive than anywhere else I'd worked. Additionally, the pay was better for my position than for similar positions at other hospitals.

    Cons

    The pharmacy leadership dynamic has been in flux for some time, leading to a shaky internship program.

    the people are what make it fun

    they try to be nice but they will talk behind your back

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't matter what we say they are not going to fix it

    Pros

    The patient's are awesome. The benefits package is good. The nursing staff is like a second family.

    Cons

    It is a teaching facility, one is constantly dealing with new resident physicians. The CEO has designated himself the CNO, and placed a radiology technician with a Masters in business over the entire operations, so the nursing has very little protection or advocacy. There is no holiday pay. Equipment is outdated.

    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.
