Project Coordinator, Pop Health/Virtual Health (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 22, 2017
It felt good to work for a good cause and company even though my position did not work in the hospital or with kids. There were a lot of perks and good benefits; I got to make my own hours and had the opportunity to work from home some days.
North Texas - CPhT (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – September 12, 2017
Performed the full range of hospital pharmacy duties including a formula lab position since the hospital is a children's hospital.
A typical day is primarily filling cart-fill and first-doses for new admits, both sterile and non-sterile doses. Other necessary duties per shift involved re-stocking remote omnicells, making necessary formula for feeding patients, and restocking inventory for next shift. Secondary duties involve compounding and repackaging as business needs.
The work culture encourages growth. I began working in central fill and quickly progressed through three different departments, learning more with each successive move.
The most difficult part of the job came from the high-paced growth of the area which out-paced the labor on my shift. During the highest peak, in winter, there were times where we were stretched a bit too thin for our volume. As the same season approaches, the company is reviewing how it can better handle this higher volume through adding more positions.
The best part of the job has been the high satisfaction for helping sick children. Combine that with the ability to use a wide range of skills to accomplish this and an independence to use those skills as needed- what better job could you find.
IT Support (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 6, 2017
Senior leadership should be more involved in the departments and day to day activities. Workplace culture in certain departments are terrible and some mangers are allowed to be completely unprofessional even if HR is asked to intervene.
HEALTH UNIT COORDINATOR/CONCIERGE (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – July 16, 2017
I learned a lot working at the hospital. I enjoyed helping the families and patients. the hardest part was we did not have anyone speaking up for us. If the parent or patient say something that is it we could not defend ourselves. I loved my coworkers. I got along with everyone, but some of my coworkers had a hard time.
Great mission, passionate employees, terrible leadership.
Marketing (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – July 11, 2017
Children's Health is as important an organization as there is in the DFW area, changing the lives of thousands of children every year. It is packed with passionate employees, clinical and otherwise.
However, the closer you get tot the top, the more politics and a misplaced sense of self-importance come into play. As a result, a lot of work (particularly in the non-clinical areas) is aimed at making an impression on those above rather than actually meeting the mission.
Smart, passionate people in clinical areas
petulant, self-centered, image driven activity from the middle to the top.
Developer (Current Employee) – Irving, TX – June 27, 2017
If you work in IT your are the most unhappy person.No time for family no work life balance.Business works from home and enjoys all the pleasures but IT sad faces hired all Indian immigrants to work in for IT.Too many directors who don't even know how to filter columns in excel they are there because of favoritism.
Worst place to work.....Slavery still exists

Milieu Therapist (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 1, 2017
Love working for this organization to advance their mission to make life better for children. Life changing experience, many opportunities for advancement, management very supportive of its employees advancing their education.
Ambulatory Service Representative (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – May 23, 2017
Answered incoming calls in a professional manner and assisted patients parents by providing them adequate information and transferring them to the desired clinic. Made outgoing calls to patients' families to confirm the patients' appointment.
great environment, flexible and understanding management
not enough hours, only part time position available
I have worked with Epic for over 12 years, both full-time and as a consultant. Children's Health, by far, has the worst configuration that I have ever seen. This comes from having a CMIO who involves himself in every aspect of operations and a management staff who coddle to upper leadership. I would never recommend anyone to this employer.
