    I worked at Cincinnati Children's Hospital

    Pros

    Very stable job, on-site cafeteria, well-respected hospital, consistent cost of living increases.

    Cons

    Focus on patient care sometimes made researchers seem like second-class citizens, parking was a hassle, labs in old research building could use updates.

    I have been working at Cincinnati Children's Hospital full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Job stability
    Initial Salary
    Flexible work hours
    Technical learning opportunities abound

    Cons

    Constant cutting of benefits:
    *403b matching gone
    *pension plan hacked to 25% of what it used to be--if that
    *punitive salary ceilings/caps (from what I have seen, if you stay here a while and your salary may stay the same--forever)

    Too many tiers of I/S management. After talking with a few employees who'd been here a while, we agree that we're actually doing less work now than we did when we started--and it's not for trying. In quite a few cases, managers aren't actually managing. They're busy grabbing the work that their employees could be doing. Employees are kept more and more isolated from areas that would normally provide feedback from adding positive value to the company.

    Questionable health of work environment/building. I can't imagine accepting working conditions that could be too much worse that what we're working in now--but I'm sure it's out there.

    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.
