    I worked at Nationwide Children's Hospital

    Pros

    Set hours and no weekends

    Cons

    Very underpaid for the work and amount of stress and pay lower then most places for same position and raises are very little . You have to constantly watch your back working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't know how to differ from being someones manager then being a friend then don't take a management position. Make sure your employees are trained properly so incidents like entire clinic using unsterile instruments all morning doesn't happen

    I have been working at Nationwide Children's Hospital

    Pros

    I feel pride in my work place, and benefits are decent. There are accommodations for nursing mothers. I got FMLA for a pregnancy.

    Cons

    My boss never cared about her people. HR was very slow, and the benefits keep changing to make things harder for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no substitute for good morale.

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

    Pros

    Overall, it's a great hospital and they really, truly care about the patients and their families

    Cons

    Some departments make it really hard for their employees to transfer out to other departments within the hospital. HR does not nothing to help these employees. And the pay is very low compared to the industry standards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to take a good hard look at managers who stifle employee growth

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

    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.

    Pros

    Great learning experience, able to use your medical skills..
    Being able to see the smiles on those you help.....

    Cons

    Not equal judgment for all employees, a lot of diversity based off your "title and were you work!"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone the same no matter their title!
    Believe in giving people 2nd chances, there are a lot who need it.
