    Pros

    It feels good to know you're making a difference, even in non-clinical positions. All employees, from physicians to custodians, seem to enjoy their work. Benefits are excellent compared to most hospitals in the region. While fraught with beauracracy, Children's seems to have their heart in the right place.

    Cons

    It's not located near the center of the city, and there's always construction going on, making navigating the campus a chore. Due to several shake-ups in upper administration, it seems like Children's mission and vision statements also need a revision to point out their haphazard expansion and growth plans. Also, smells like bleach everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Despite improvements to annual review processes and rounding, more is needed to incentivise employees and make them engaged in their work.

    Pros

    Great place to work! It has a wonderful atmosphere and the people are hardworking, ethical, and genuine.

    Cons

    Good works can sometimes go unrecognized, and compensation compared to regional standards doesn't quite add up, but the benefits are amazing, so it evens out in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    We need better ways to assess an employees value to the company. A cost of living raise once a year is not enough to even keep up with the cost of living, let alone reward the employee for hard wokrk, dedication and growth.
