    Pros

    They care about their employees, patients, and visitors. They honestly do live up to their cliche slogan of ' Everything Matters!' Vacation and benefits couldn't be matched if there was a union. Simply put, GREAT EMPLOYER.

    Cons

    Management is typically promoted from within based on tenure rather than job performance. The shift times are a little skewed for anybody who works in a supportive department. (Cashiers, Security, Engineering, Custodial, Clerks, etc.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being an outstanding worker does not always mean that you possess leadership skills. Remember that you are directing a team. Use military philosophy to ensure the greatest outcomes. Don't be afraid to address poor performing employees or to praise a successful bout either.

    I worked at Nationwide Children's Hospital full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Staff and management very friendly on a personal level, good place to gain knowledge and experience in your field. They do have genuine concern for their patient's well-being.

    Cons

    Poor benefits; few holidays (must use PTO time), high health insurance costs, and poor raises that are below the cost of living. You are constantly told that the hospital doesn't have money for raises yet spends enormous amounts of money remodeling hospital or for new flashy signs and logos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Telling your employees how they're doing good work because they're helping sick children but not paying them competitive wages or benefits only breeds cynicism amongst your work force. Also, your employees know what the other hospitals in the area are paying for similar positions.

    Pros

    Good benefits, okay pay, working with the kids was a blast! This is an award winning, world class hospital and most departments act like they are.

    Cons

    Management can be out of touch and make it difficult to have a voice/see results. Pay scale could be better, but the benefits are decent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff, they do the work and have ideas on how to improve the quality of the work.
