    I have been working at Ohio State University Medical Center full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    good benefits, learning opportunities, online medical library

    Cons

    poor management, small chance for advancement, no discipline for workplace bullying, raises do not go along with rising costs of economy, have to pay to park your car in order to work and it isn't cheap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't believe that just because someone is a manager that he/she tells the truth. I have watched my manager lie and HR believes her over the employees resulting in bullying and a few innocent employees being terminated because they stood up to her. It makes it very difficult to work in an atmosphere where an employee has no voice regardless of whatever the company says about not tolerating retaliation. Retaliation is all my current manager knows about and you guys let her do it all the time. When someone complains about workplace bullying you should take that very seriously. Instead, you blame the bully and the victim when the victim has done nothing wrong. You need to start reprimanding bullies and put a stop to it! It leads to poor job quality, dissatisfied staff, and hostile working environments.

    Awful. HR needs immediate overhaul, bloated workforce, no career trajectory, no accountability, unprofessional staff.

    Pros

    Great for those in a holding pattern in their careers and no desire for continuous advancement. Its like being in retirement while getting paid to do so.

    Cons

    Powerless managers, specially in my division. Nepotism rampant. No accountability for non-performance. Frustrating back room politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold yourself accountable for your team's performance.

    I worked at Ohio State University Medical Center

    Pros

    Great training and education benefits. Competitive salary, health, and retirement package. Worked under union contract which allowed for guaranteed raises and benefit protection.

    Cons

    Too big! The medical center is one of, if not the largest employers in Ohio. So, when it comes to issues related to HR you are certainly just a replaceable number. Parking availability and cost is also an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    good people but at times questionable priorities in building projects

    I have been working at Ohio State University Medical Center

    Pros

    supportive educational environment for medical residents, lots of medical resources in every specialty including cardiology and cancer. experienced nurses with wealth of experience and good patient care.

    Cons

    large hospital, lots of bureaucracy. Recent opening of cancer hospital which looks great but concerns that it went significantly over budget. New ED opened with doubled capacity without increasing the overall number of beds in the hospital. Questionable decision making to save money by increasing nursing ratios.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Patient care has very little with having a hotel

    Pros

    I have worked at two different medical facilities and this one was top notch! As a student at Ohio State, it was a privilege to work for such an amazing hospital. Everyone was very friendly and I got along very well with all of my coworkers - students, nurses, residents, attendings, etc!

    Cons

    The hospital is very large and it takes a long time to feel comfortable navigating.
