Pros

Of course the #1 reason to work for Children's is knowing that everything you do is for the benefit of the children that the institution serves everyday. Even if you don't work on the clinical side, you are aware that your job, in some way, impacts the lives of the children and their families. I worked with some very good people who are passionate about there work. All in all, it is a respected institution and will look great on your resume if you decide to pursue other career opportunities.

Cons

All departments are not located in the hospital, which can lead to individuals doing their "own thing" because of lack of supervision. Several essential, yet non-clinical departments are spread throughout the city and suburbs, which makes it difficult to coordinate projects and meet benchmarks in a timely manner.

Advice to Management

Find a location that can house each non-clinical department. It doesn't make financial sense to lease several spaces in and around the city. You will accomplish more and lessen employee frustration.
