    I worked at Cincinnati Children's Hospital part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Top-notch staff recruited from all over the world, particularly in the research and medical divisions
    Deep commitment from top down to doing the best for children and their families
    Well-respected in the local community and also around the world

    Cons

    The only con for me was the commute. It's just a couple of miles north of downtown, so if you live in the suburbs, the traffic is a pain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on your core values. Don't compromise quality for profit.

    I have been working at Cincinnati Children's Hospital full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everything is top of the line, and it's exciting to be around the level of innovation that exists here. The work is always geared towards changing the outcome for children around the world with no regard for profit. For the most part, people are happy to be here, from the janitorial staff to the attendings.

    Cons

    It's a huge organization with a corporate mentality. They are stingy with the nursing salary. A lot of the time, departments are understaffed, and when people step up to help out, there is no reward. HR is very black and white when it comes to years experience, not taking education or certifications into account, or outside experience - even when very applicable! It seems had to move up unless you are very self-motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you claim to be the best and want to hire the best, you need to PAY the best. Be more flexible with upper level positions by looking at the person as a whole, including any other work experiences besides healthcare alone.
