    Pros

    great environment people are great, innovative and exciting, lots of extra programs to help with retention and moral

    Cons

    gossip can get bad on some units, turnover of leadership leaves a lot of managers unfamiliar with staff's strengths and weaknesses, The absentee policy is ridiculous!

    Advice to Management

    ADN's with 20 years of experience are better charge nurses than little girls fresh out of school with 2 extra years of theory and paper writing. The leadership structure should have been grandfathered in. The new CNO was supposed to put things back together but the same inexperienced nurses who didn't know how to delegate for their staff where still charging and the senior nurses who could run circles around them were starting to quite when I left.
    Require a contractual obligation to TCH to recieve tuition reimbursement. (Hermann does two years after the last check is cut).

    Nearly every coworker I saw finish grad school quite in less than a year and found a job outside TCH (usually because they couldn't transfer)

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

    Pros

    Not sure who wrote that burn book OT review...but I worked here in acute care OT for almost 2 years before recently moving and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about TCH and their rehab team. I now work at another peds hospital, and it really doesn't compare. The amount of help, support, and compassion the OTs have for their patients at Texas Children's is amazing. Everyone at work cares so much about helping you be the best therapist you can be, and giving you ample opportunities for growth. You get to work with an incredibly diverse patient population in a hospital that really values teamwork in all disciplines (not just OT/PT). I feel like I left a family there of supportive, dedicated individuals who really try to be there for one another. Once you gain the trust of your team and your patients, the amount of insanely cool things you get to see and do there as a therapist is unprecedented.

    Cons

    The only thing I can think of is that you really put in a lot of hours. You need to be mentally sharp and be able to rise to the challenge when you work there. It is a fast-paced environment. Some people really struggle with not being able to meet the demands of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Rehab management at TCH was very supportive, easy to talk to, and always made themselves available to help if there is something you had an issue with . I really liked our manager a lot. My advice would be to try to take on a more active role when employees are telling you what they need, rather than being empathetic but listening passively.
