    I have been working at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The nursing staff in this unit are truly wonderful to each other, as you often don't have to ask for help, others volunteer it. The nurse practitioners, residents/fellows, and attending physician are a pleasure to work with and encourage nursing staff input. The pay is better than other areas due to the critical care differential (10%). Great tuition assistance program for continuing education.

    Cons

    This unit is currently in a staffing crisis, with many changes being made to employee schedules. Management is currently blocking transfers out of unit, so you must be able to endure until the crisis ends, or leave the hospital. A lot of jumping through hoops is done with little to no recognition. Very much a continuation of the college sorority experience with the usual cliques and unfortunate gossip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge and reward staff achievement. Spend time in the unit to "walk in our shoes". Resolve staffing crisis.

    Pros

    Nice group of people, everyone respects you. Probably the best benefits around town.

    Cons

    Bad policies during extreme weather. A really far and annoying parking shuttle since employee count is too large for parking capacities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay extra attention to anybody you grant leadership roles to. They don't always deserve it.

    Former Employee - Media Relations Intern in Kansas City, MO (US)

    I worked at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company culture was fantastic. We had lunch catered frequently, lots of bonding activities and easy accessibility to senior management. I really felt like my opinions mattered and, in fact, several of my ideas were put into action.

    Cons

    The only downside I can think of is that CMH requires an excess amount of training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! Working at CMH was an amazing experience.
