Hectic
INFORMATION SECURITY ANALYST (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCOctober 31, 2017
Working at Children's Hospital is crazy. The management do not respect employees. They want you to do all the work, while they watch. They will schedule individuals to work long hours without stepping in to check on them. Machines and resources needed to work are usually unavailable which makes working difficult.

Proceed with caution
Senior Grants and Contracts Specialist (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCMay 17, 2017
This organization does not seem to value their greatest resource which is the human resource. Employees are treated as replaceable and of no value. The only way I would advise anyone to apply to this organization is if you need to build up your resume quickly. Working over 40 hours is expected on a consistent basis.
Pros
A great resume booster. Decent pay.
Cons
Terrible leadership, terrible training and orientation.

Clinical Operations Representative II (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCDecember 30, 2016
A typical day at Children's National is warm and loving the happiness and smiles that you put on the children''s face and parents too, is very warm. The most enjoyable part of working here is that you helped a family in a small or big way but they were at the end happy.

Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Washington City, DCOctober 29, 2016
A typical day at work is fast and steady. What I have learned at the company is that management will never admit when they are wrong. the co workers are OK. The hardest part of the job is dealing with rude customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing sick patients smile.
Pros
Long Breaks
Cons
No Free Food

Great People, but not well managed
Child Psychiatric Specialist (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 15, 2016
Shift work, working with a variety of emotionally and mentally disturbed children. The workplace environment forges bonds with the people you work with similar to that of family. Life long friendships are a common occurrence. People who have worked here have moved on to bigger and better things (graduate school in Ph.D./Psy.D., more lucrative jobs, etc).

The bad: Poorly managed, they do not have your best interests in mind. Little or no advancement. As a psych specialist, there is no additional promotion. Either go back to school and come back as a nurse, doctor, social worker, etc. There is no formal promotional ladder.
Pros
Great people and (sometimes) kids
Cons
Poorly managed

Unit Clerk (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCMarch 10, 2016
A typical day at work is medium paced. You are not only assisting the patients you are also assisting the parents. The joy that I see on the kids faces when they are feeling better after surgery is wonderful.

Camp Counselor (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCFebruary 25, 2016
Everyone is a family and the support and encouragement that the kids receive is incredible. Being there opens your eyes to how others live with their illnesses. Everyone that leaves the camp site is eager to return. Being at Brainy Camps is such a humbling experience.

low pay and hard to balance life and work
Research Associate (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 31, 2016
It takes long time in traffic every day. Leaving home at 7:00am, 1.5 hours in the road, and backing home after 7:00pm. It's also very hard to balance work and life. Job maybe secured and pay is low.

Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 5, 2015
A typical day at work was typing memorandums and sending letters to patients regarding their lab results. I learned a lot of new skills, medical terminology and how to use a lot of hardware. My co-workers were very supportive. The hardest part of the job was trying to grasp all of the information. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and finally starting a career.
Pros
Enjoyed the skills I was learning
Cons
Wasn't too keen on how the doctor's treated staff
