I worked at Texas Children's Hospital full-time (More than a year)

Pros

1 Great coworkers!
2. Decent benefits

Cons

Horrible management (they call themselves leadership) in Information Services
Long hours working on equipment that should have been upgraded or replace long ago.
Management does not allow down time on anything vital, causing the network and security equipment to be largely out of date. Including bad patch management.
Employees are treated with no respect.
A lot of the managers and director are bullies that constantly threaten the employees.
Employees are not allowed to attend training.
HR treats employees like chattel.
Very poor adherence to federal and state regulatory requirements.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the current crop of VP's, Directors and about half of the managers as they are running the place into the ground. Go back to the core values of Texas Childrens Hospital that seems to have been lost at some point.
After seeing how they operate, I would never take my child to that hospital again.

    I have been working at Texas Children's Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, Flex hours, training (for new nursing grad). Most of the nurses I encountered really seemed to enjoy their job.

    Cons

    Parking, in my unit at times we would be assigned to many patients (not the ratio I was told when I interviewed). Not enough PCA's to help nurses at times.

    I worked at Texas Children's Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pros to working at TCH for researchers include prime real estate in the med center. You have access to multiple vivariums, cores for everything, experts in almost any field nearby (MD anderson, Rice, BCM, Methodist, UT, etc.).

    Cons

    No 401k matching for research. Parking is expensive. Pay is average. Human resource department is average. Huge variability in lab quality. Some new lab space and alot of old, run down lab space.
