    overall my employment at CCHMC was very positive.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

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

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    They care about their employees

    Research Associate (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider training your employees to promote more from within. Alternatively, offer more pay raises.

    population health "researcher"

    Clinical Research Coordinator II (Current Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    Prosvery 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.

    Consbeing 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.

    Great job and skills obtained but hard getting promoted within the organization.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe benefits and salary are excellent. Skills obtain while on the job were excellent, care about all patients.

    ConsThe challenges I faced seemed to be structural opposition to hire or promote a diverse pool of qualified candidates for executive level positions. There are really a few minorities in senior executive roles.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper Management really need to promote or higher a diverse pool of qualified minority candidates for senior level positions.

    OK

    Financial Service Representative (Current Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsGood People, Good Benefits, easy going environment

    ConsHit 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.

    Dysfunctional research teams.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGet to help kids. Get to work independently. That about cover's it. I am looking for a new job now.

    ConsHell is other people. Crappy pay for this position. Terrible promotion schedule. 7-layer bean dip of bureaucratic hell. They won't let me hire students for my lab because they don't have the space. How the hell am I supposed to run a lab without employees?
