Pros

The care provided to the patients is beyond compare. Children's lives are saved on a daily basis.

Cons

People are promoted to management who have no skills for it. Gossip is tolerated and even encouraged. Toxic managers and directors are common.

Advice to Management

Policies are created with no plans or resources to implement or enforce. Good intentions will not save the company from poor internal practices with research.

    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.
