    Pros

    Great Management! No call or weekends! Annual raises. Free CMEs every week! Good teamwork. Staff is all friendly. Opportunity to advance or move to local clinics when a position becomes available.

    Cons

    Parking is costly to park close to the facility. Or you can take the free shuttle to the free parking garage.

    Pros

    It's a very flexible job. Most ppl love their jobs and leadership. The company is growing at a very past pace and positions are open for those who qualify.

    Cons

    Some nepotism and favoritism in the work place. Sometimes you have management that does not communicate well to their staff and other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Hire staff within and promote within

    Pros

    Good benefits, great mission, great CEO, good overall culture, and beautifully diverse.

    Cons

    Horrible leadership within departments, extremely slow to operate, technology is extremely behind, no focus on innovation or desire to change for the future, and very slow pace.

    Advice to Management

    This is good place to settle down and take care of your family, but it is a horrible place if you're used to fast pace and progress.

    I have been working at Texas Children's Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with the kids is the best part!!!!

    Cons

    The pay practically stays the same each year. People who have been there for 6 years + makes the same as someone who has just been hired. Once you've learned everything in the department there isn't any growth afterwards. You'll have to move to another department to advance further.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making things about yourself. Be fair to everyone. Take notice of a+ workers. Those are the ones that truly want to be there. Also have respect for everyone. Leadership has it bad treating employees like children. They talk to employees like kids depending on their mood. And they tend to micromanage depending on their mood. Management could use communication work.. ASAP.

    Pros

    There are genuinely good people in non leadership positions to work with & knowing that you work for an organization that does so much for families in need is a great feeling.

    Cons

    The culture & leadership from the CIO through the executive chain is the worse than I've ever experienced within an IS organization at any level. Low quality of life, poor communication, inconsistent direction & turning teams against one another are just a few of the low class leadership qualities nurtured throughout; this is evident in their high turnover of FTEs.

    Advice to Management

    The entire leadership tree needs to be replaced in order to replace the toxic environment that currently exists. Anonymity doesn't exist within HR when trying to voice concerns & next level visionaries aren't welcome.
