    Great organization; poorly organized.

    I worked at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, great values/ vision, and everyone is working for a great cause. Orientation process was very efficient.

    Cons

    Working at the Broadway location seemed very disjointed from the main campus. There is far too little administrative support for the doctors/ nurses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider restructuring the administrative support at Broadway for the clinics there. Consider ways to include the Broadway Clinics in organizational development.

    Former Employee - Registered Nurse, Clinic in Kansas City, MO (US)

    I worked at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics

    Pros

    The opportunity to build or expand your pediatric nursing knowledge is high. You will get to work with a variety of patient populations and diagnoses. There are some truly passionate nurses, nurse practitioners and physicians which are inspiring. If you are returning to school or working towards a nursing degree, management will support and accommodate your schedule as much as possible.

    Cons

    Management at certain clinics is very poor. There is favoritism and a substantial lack of communication from management to staff. Changes are often in the works, for months at a time, but staff is rarely informed. Employee reviews lack objectivity and professionalism.
    The pay is also inconsistent with the amount of work that is required.
    The nurse practitioners are not treated as well as the physicians. For example, at one location the NPs have to share an office but the physicians each get their own yet they both see/treat the same amount of patients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication. Make all managers, regardless of experience attend workshops on communicating effectively and objectively. In addition, perform regular assessments of each manager that include interviewing of at least 5 staff members.

    Pay staff competitive rates that match their job duties.

    Provide NPs with their own office and treat them with the same respect and dignity as the physicians.

    Pros

    This is a very nurse friendly organization!! Loved working here! Would recommend to anyone interested in pediatrics. Company values nursing judgement and physicians are great to work with.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, for advancing degrees, they do not give much "incentive" to stay (in other words, they really do not pay Nurse Practitioners that well) However, the other benefits such as great work environments and work culture could potentially outweigh this in the future?...
    Medical Benefits are way too expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    May need to become more competitive in the NP market in the future

    Pros

    Cons

    Low salary.

    Upper and even middle-management does not care about their employees....but employees are supposed to be thrilled to work for them!
