    I have been working at Cincinnati Children's Hospital part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay seems to be average, above average. The skills you learn are without a doubt what makes it a great place to work. You get to see everything come through those doors.

    Cons

    The insurance seems to be going up every year but is still awesome coverage.

    I worked at Cincinnati Children's Hospital full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Dedicated staff. Great benefits. Flexible scheduling. Facility is dedicated to patient and staff safety. Learning environment caters to multidisciplinary teams and mutual respect.

    Cons

    As an employee of CCHMC, you will always be encouraed to put the patient and their families first. Its difficult to maintain good work life balance. Not enought sick days, lack of directors/managers who are willing to actually USE the performance based pay increases....instead employees are lumped together as department and individual compensation is reflective of entire team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent. Be fair. Pay attention to teh employees who go above and beyond consistently. Give them a break when they need it...use "discretion"

    I worked at Cincinnati Children's Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly staff and clean environment. Food service is top notch for a hospital. They have a Starbucks on-site.

    Cons

    Promotions are slow to achieve. That is ultimately why I left. It is a very serious work environment, despite their facade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider training your employees to promote more from within. Alternatively, offer more pay raises.

    Pros

    Good People, Good Benefits, easy going environment

    Cons

    Hit or miss leadership at all levels. No opportunity for advancement!
    If you are looking for a job ( paycheck, benefits) it is a good place,but if you are looking for a career you may want to think twice if you have options.

    Pros

    very rewarding when at events interacting directly with kids. healthcare and wellness incentive program are very good. also plenty of opportunities to network with other young professionals.

    Cons

    being a non-profit, the pay could be a little better. also, my specific job description is very broad, leaving lots of room for interpretation and maybe too much flexibility.
