    I have been working at Children's Medical Center of Dallas

    Pros

    The mission statement of “Making lives better for children.” is a great mission statement and I believe the organization as a whole lives up to that goal. I cannot tell you how many people come up to me if they see my badge and let me know, that in spite of the reason for having to be there, their experience has been a positive one. The leadership team is navigating an uncertain future and is developing a strategy to continue to grow and adapt to a changing environment.

    I have read some of the negative posts regarding the organization…and in particular the IS team. The organization is going through tremendous amounts of change to be successful in its mission and its strategy. Change is always difficult, especially when coupled with a higher level of expectation in job performance. To be sure, expectations in this organization are high. But the results are there. Under the direction of its leadership, the IS team has successfully achieved several milestones including HI TRUST certification, the Davies award, HIMSS Level 7, and consistent Most Wired recognition year over year just to name a few. As a result, Childrens is nationally recognized from both a clinical and al technological perspective.

     I certainly feel challenged working in this organization and would recommend it to anyone who is ready to work on a dynamic team. Results, while not everything, are extremely important and the IS team certainly delivers.

    Cons

    The demand for IS services is high. A more robust protocol for the prioritization of that demand would help smooth out some of the spikes in expectations.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Children's Medical Center of Dallas.

    Interview Details

    Lots of behavioral type of questions. Be very prepared. They like to ask you about past experiences, past mistakes, "what if" type of questions. The HR department is VERY slow with returning phone calls and emails. Just be patient and keep tracking down your application status. If you know someone who already works there, talk with them to get phone numbers and email addresses.
