    Pros

    competitive pay; variety in daily work; projects

    Cons

    workload - there is so much work and it's one project after another; staffing - when people leave the job is not always filled again; budget - every year there is a big push to manage to what is budgeted

    Advice to Management

    New professionals entering workforce think and work differently. Need to be managed differently as well.

    Pros

    Friendly environment at work, with great benefits and facilities for employees. Provides parking. Easy to commute to and from work.

    Cons

    Nothing major. I work in research and have to deal with a lot of purchasing, and it is much more difficult to deal with TCH purchasing than with Baylor's. It is harder to get things approved and it takes much longer for orders to be fulfilled by the vendors.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing.

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

    Pros

    The hospital seemed to work as a very good team when it comes to patient care. Every employee seemed to be important in the eyes of the hospital from the housekeeping staff , lab, pharmacy , nurses and doctors. Working in an allied health profession, this is often ignored at hospitals.

    Cons

    Driving to the Texas medical center. The hospital does provide bus passes for free though.
