ProsThe parts that I enjoyed about working for Children's Mercy Hospital and Clinics were its Mission, goals, workplace culture, helping people, compensation, the people I worked with.

ConsThe parts that I did not enjoy about working for Children's Mercy Hospital and Clinics were Some days there is a lot to do and others there is not, there has to be offsite parking (but the shuttles are typically very quick and efficient).

Excellent

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

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

ProsThe 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing! Working at CMH was an amazing experience.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

The staff working here believe in the Children's Mercy Mission, upper management, the board of directors and CEO do not.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat coworkers. PTO program is pretty good.

ConsThe CEO of this hospital made 6million dollars in 2011. He is the top paid CEO of any children's hospital. The staff working here do it for less pay than other hospitals in the region because if you want to work with kids, it's the place to be. We are told there is not room in the budget for more FTEs and not room in the budget for a cost of living adjustment. Upper management does not care about the employees. You will just be a number. It wasn't always this way. They will tell you to just be thankful that you have a job and that you can easily be replaced with a new grad. I would like to see what their patient satisfaction surveys would say if they only had inexperienced nurses.

Advice to Senior ManagementRe-evaluate your beliefs. Remember why you started working here in the first place. Think of what Dr. Alice Berry Graham and Dr. Katharine Berry Richardson would think of Children's Mercy today.

Dissatisfied with my mangement

I have been working at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics full-time for more than 3 years

ProsMy co-workers and the experience I learned here

ConsCertain Management. They don't always listen to the employee. They just assume and go off what they here

Advice to Senior ManagementThings aren't always what they seem, You need to listen to your employees more before you assume things and resort to writing them up for things that aren't their fault!!
