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

Pros

tuition reimbursement, opportunities to advance in certain titles, cater to many cultural families, flex schedule

Cons

lack of diversity among professional staff (nurses) but cater to a variety of diverse cultures, inconsistency among management and staff, if you are not kissing up or have courage to voice your concerns without hesistation then you are a threat or trouble maker and these factors will stop you from advancing forward
 currently is interchanging people positions such as RNs, PCA's, HUCS and using them outside their job they are hired for (RNS should not to used as sitters at a RN rate and at the discretion of management, HUCs should not used as sitters because they are not direct care providers and lack the required skills, and PCAs should not be used as HUCs when they are paid on higher pay scales and have different responsibilities),
you can be floated to other units that are consistently understaffed,
management in my dept doesn't listen to your concerns and basically makes decisions based on arrogance rather than seeking staff opinon,
 doesn't address discrimination at hand but offers diversity training to the whole instead ( this is a big issue in my dept, its becoming overbearing),
RNs who have many years of experience as an ASN can not advance if they don't have BSN.
Value initiative to save money is not effective

Advice to ManagementAdvice

many of your employees are losing faith in this company. its being treated like big business. provide incentives for your employess and enourage support among the management. Also, please recognize your ancillary staff such as PCA's and HUCs more. It's insulting to see that PCA's don't get recognition throughout the house when they are direct patient care but see housekeeping & patient escort getting all honor reception event from others. Learn to respect the soldiers who keeps your business floating

    I worked at Cincinnati Children's Hospital full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Working with children and their family.

    Cons

    The back stabing, brown nose culture is hard to deal with and management encourages this type of behavior. Management does not listen to concerns. Encouraged to get a higher degree but no reward only to help with magnet status. The company waste money on meeting after meeting that never amounts to anything happening. Spent a lot of money to have a company come in to save them money only to cut raises, benefits, and replace RN positions with Medical Assistants. Way to many Chiefs and not enough Indians.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice they won't listen anyway!!!

    I worked at Cincinnati Children's Hospital full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    shuttle available for parking
    shifts available
    many areas around city for positions
    centerlink available for information about the institution

    Cons

    poor upper management of research labs
    no advancement
    pay raises low if at all
    no match for retirement
    salaried positions work long hours and not noted in yearly review

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One should actually work 10% in the area that they are managing, not just be in the office with the door closed, to know who is actually working. 90% of the time, the individuals who state they are working are doing personnal business: facebook and e-mail.
