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

    Pros

    Wonderful Clientele
    Some wonderful members of leadership
    Great place to learn
    supportive management

    Cons

    Orientation is not organized.
    Orientation staff really do make your life miserable, they will focus on everything you do incorrectly, or not their way. They even tell you, I like it written this way, and this other therapist does it this way. And you have to follow/
    Now that I am at another place, the OTs need to learn what OT is, they are practicing PT--just adding an adl to the end of the sentence.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for your team members. Some of them are very cruel, both inpatient and outpatient. I went through this experience a year ago---I hear it continues--and it is too bad because you are a wonderful hospital. Would not step in there again.
    Also look at what the OTs really know-- they are not practicing OT.

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

    Pros

    Can definitely make money with overtime, great benefits, decent bonuses but the children and company integrity is the biggest bonus of all. Can easily travel within the company to many departments, industries, specialties with training and support.

    Cons

    Humans are petty, management can be very egotistical and pessimistic but politics are wherever you go. For the majority, everyone is very nice almost to a fault so there is also a lot of passive aggressiveness but you can survive that.

    Advice to Management

    Take in to consideration everyone involved, not just your favorites. Do what's right, period.
