    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

    I worked at Ohio State University Medical Center as an intern (more than an year)

    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.

    Pros

    Can choose from all shifts, competitive pay, and great resume builder for any major or career hopes.

    Pros

    "You would be working for the state of Ohio, so that means you would have great benefits. There is also room for growth and development. You make good money working for the state. Going back to school is always an option with tuition assistance. And your apart of the union."

    Cons

    " You have to pay for parking, and you still may have to walk a pretty far. There is also no set time for lunch and or 15 min breaks, so you just have to take a break whenever a patient doesn't need you."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a shuttle for employees who have to walk to the pit late at night.

    Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Columbus, OH

    I worked at Ohio State University Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are excellent. Research resources are outstanding, especially in oncology.
    Many opportunities to contribute to positive patient outcomes and to achieve measurable improvements.

    Cons

    Such a large system that change can be cumbersome. Very challenging to be fully accepted if not educated at OSU. New ideas not readily accepted. Defensive attitude when outcomes indicate need for improvement. Too much time spent on personal communication devices during work time at the expense of direct patient or family care. This was disappointing. Work-life balance was verbally encouraged but realistically difficult to achieve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize positive contributors. Support "grass roots efforts" to weed out those who ignore their job responsibilities. The shameless slackers demoralize and/or aggravate those who truly love patient care and are proud of what we can achieve as caregivers working together as one team.
