Pros

CNMC encourages team-based work and provides opportunity to advance your career. Employees are friendly, encouraging and willing to assist new nurses.

Cons

Management was not available on the unit I worked. There were issues and conflicts within management and leadership. Counseling services for health care employees was minimal to none.

Advice to Management

CNMC should provide and offer more available counseling and support services for their employees and encourage their employees to seek assistance if necessary.

    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.

    I have been working at Children's National Health System part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The network is great, you make so many connections. The people are kind, there is a real spirit of collaboration. There are many funding opportunities, with seasoned investigators offering to help junior investigators with proposals. There are research lectures nearly every week to attend.

    Cons

    The location is difficult to get to, there is no metro station nearby and limited onsite parking. The pay is low, even with gaining two advanced degrees (Ma, Phd) I didn't receive adequate pay which is ultimately why I left. There were also limited opportunities for training, I had to pay most trainings out of pocket which was frustrating, especially if the training was required by the company to gain increased salary.

    Advice to Management

    If a training is required by the hospital for career advancement, the employee should not be responsible for paying. That limits the career advancement opportunity for employees without financial means.
