Pros

The care given to the children is top notch. The opportunity to be part of the care is such a delight.

Cons

Working with sick kids can make some people mean. The overall atmosphere is eat or be eaten.

Advice to Management

Be willing to clean house and get rid of the trouble makers, especially those who do not recognize the benefit of being a teaching hospital.

    Pros

    Mostly friendly. Decisions are consensus driven and respectful. Pay is pretty good. Recent management replacement may be sign that organization is moving in right direction if not there yet. Easy to be proud of job that (indirectly) helps sick children. Communication about changes in organization and general news is pretty good.

    Cons

    Overall, management is friendly and respectful, but very lacking in basic management and project management training (feedback, delegation, purpose of goals, time management, etc.). Some managers are even toxic. Fear of change stands in the way of progress. Consensus driven decisions can sometimes slow things down. Organization is not always honest with itself about how to improve. Lack of real offices means knowledge work suffers. Parking is bad but may improve soon.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time learning management and project management skills. Be honest about how the organization works, or improvement isn't possible.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    To help children! The ability to learn from coworkers. Working with people who care about others. Active, never boring place!
    Pride in the community

    Cons

    Somewhat "corporate" environment, chain of command is super long, There are too many different committees which often leads to a breakdown in communication and responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the "little people" who are truly what keeps us going and who actually have much more contact with patients and families than executives do.
