    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.

    Pros

    Love working with all of the departments. Nursing culture is amazing. Executive leaders are available and supportive. Support Services like Patient Transport, EVS, Security, SRC and Engineering are awesome. Social Work and Family Advocacy are great too. Everyone is focused on taking care of the patients' needs.

    Cons

    Sometimes it takes a while for a decision to be made. Almost too collaborative.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.
