    I worked at Ohio State University Medical Center

    Pros

    Good pay for a student job, short shifts two days a week, and every other weekend. Always opportunities to switch schedule with people and to get more hours.

    Cons

    Hospitals must serve food 365 days a year, so holidays get a little tight with people wanting to go home. Also, fast turn over. Almost entirely new staff from when I started to when I finished almost a year later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer longer training. When I began working, I shadowed other employees for a few weeks before having my own floor(s). By the time I left, new employees seemed to have only a few days of shadowing before going at it alone (although students and managers would still help them if they needed it).

    I worked at Ohio State University Medical Center

    Pros

    There were very flexible when it came to scheduling with the students. We were able to work around our class schedules with ease.

    Cons

    Parking was not easy, so many of the students had to take a bus to get there. Also, there were no good food options, so we had to pack a lunch

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that you should work to keep the students engaged, and not just have them there to sort mail.

    Pros

    Great benefits, location, and hours. Very stimulating, challenging environment which also offered tuition reimbursement or free classes through the university

    Cons

    A bit of a cutthroat environment at times - coworkers can be competitive, but that can be the case with any place of employment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My manager was fantastic so none comes to mind

    Pros

    Good health insurance.
    There is no other pros for this place but since I have to write a 20 word minimum I will just say..You are better off going to Ohio Health.

    Cons

    They don't pay their staff enough but yet hire people that have no experience and pay them more.
    Politics and more politics
    No communication at all within department
    Management unfair and unknowledgeable, she never follows through with any requests.
    Employees should not have to pay such high parking fees or high health premiums.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use to be a really good place to work, a place that really cared for their employees. Hopefully one day it will get back to that but I am sure not in my lifetime.

    I worked at Ohio State University Medical Center (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There's always something to work on, no shortage interesting people to interact with

    Cons

    The medical center is undergoing a major budget crunch, and as such, every possible penny gets pinched and dollar spent has to be justified. It took more time and energy in meetings than it would have cost to simply buy some software that would have made my life easier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your employees the freedom to make good decisions on their own. Stop chasing dollars just because they help your bottom line - really ask yourself if the new project relates to your core competencies and strengths.

    Current Employee - Surgical Student Assistant in Columbus, OH

    I have been working at Ohio State University Medical Center

    Pros

    Flexibility in hours and opportunities for undergraduate research. I could come in and leave whenever I want, as long as the work got done, and the doctors wanted me to do research for them. I also got paid for my research because "Analyzing Data" was in my job description.

    Cons

    Same work over and over again for very little pay. There was also a significant lack of leadership from the division administrator to the Division Chief, people were let go or quit, and no attempt was made to hire that position. There were also significant budget cuts to the division which led to our shredder being removed due to "budgetary constraints."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First of all, get the shredder back. I left because I didn't want to put my career and reputation on the line because we couldn't shred confidential medical information as we needed. Also just to watch the culture of the division -- the people dictate the culture, and the culture of being entitled and victimized is toxic to the workplace.
