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

    Pros

    Many benefits that begin from day one.

    Cons

    Many of the employees are not familiar with the procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your employees to learn how to do their jobs rather then degelating their work to other employees. No should have to do the work that they are getting paid to do.

    I have been working at Nicklaus Children's Health System full-time

    Pros

    You can accumulate up to 400 PTO hours, amazing coworkers and great work atmosphere

    Cons

    Below market pay, corporate and administration moves at a snails pace while the company grows too fast for it to handle it

    Advice to Management

    Implement new changes and procedures slowly, don’t start huge new revamps in processes till the previous ones have been properly adopted.

    I worked at Nicklaus Children's Health System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement: $2000 for associates degree and $4000 bachelors a year.

    Cons

    Some departments still work with paper records. You can accumulate vacation hours but if there is a hurricane and your outpatient center closes they don’t pay you if you don’t have hours saved. Or they go into negative PTO.

    Pros

    Nice environment, good benefits, flexible hours.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with its employees, and it has been so for roughly a decade now. HR is a joke and puts up facades to maintain the illusion of change, much like politicians do. The entire organization is full of glass ceilings and unspoken politics. If you enter the service desk/desktop support department, abandon all hope of advancement into their network support team. No advancement and a clueless and egotistical leadership are killing this organization, leaving staff wide open to job offers/temptations from competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting money on the purchase of derelict medical centers and 100K circus show robots, and use it for bonus and merit raises instead. Your staff are the lifeblood of your organization and they are rapidly bleeding away elsewhere. Don’t forget to replace yourselves with new management.
