Member Internal Review Board (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – April 5, 2016
The variety of work was wonderful, from data entry to preliminary data analysis. I learned so much every day. Management above my immediate manger evolved over the time I have worked here into micromanaging nightmares. My co-workers have all be wonderful people, hard working and willing to help out. The hardest part of the job will be leaving. The most enjoyable part of the job is the contribution to the research.

Equipment Technician (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – November 8, 2015
This job was a good job when I first started there, but after all the changes and the politics it became a stressful job. This job was a great job and I had a great boss. The job itself was very interesting and not to demanding and seeing the look on the kids faces when you can do something to help them makes it very worth it.

Pediatric Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – August 2, 2015
After working as a clinical pediatric nurse with very little previous hospital experience, I was in for a rude awakening when starting in an inpatient unit. The nursing staff were generally nice. Management was amazing. All but one of the preceptors were great. I did learn, however, that working in a step-down unit was not a good fit for me. Call it "controlled chaos" where you had to multitask constantly with frequently changing orders and patient issues. I learned that I needed some place that was more structured and somewhat more routine even if it's fast-paced, such as in an ambulatory setting. This is one of the reasons I love nursing. I had the opportunity to see if the grass was greener on the other side of the fence but it wasn't, for me.
