    I have been working at Seattle Children's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Children's has a well thought out culture and set of values. They actively strive to build a sense of community that naturally spills over into respective departments. This is reflected in the laboratory, where the team works extremely well together in a positive environment. The hospital and laboratory promotes career growth and continuing education, and there is always room to add your voice to promote improvements. The benefits and salary are excellent, an the work is fulfilling.

    Cons

    Career advancement within the hospital seems like it would take some time from a lab tech perspective; although there are plenty of lateral opportunities or ways to take on additional responsibility to advance yourself professionally.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Seattle Children's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Commute bonus/bus pass is paid for; insurance benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Incompetent leadership spanning from middle management to upper management; fear-based work culture; promoted organizational "values" are not modeled; retaliation is common and ignored by HR. Organization does not place enough focus on employee retainment and frequently loses staff. Working from home is allowed among some employees but not others, and staff among the same team are held to different standards.
