I have been working at Cincinnati Children's Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)
Cincinnati Children's has an environment of excellence, but there are also very kind, compassionate and fun people here. I have built amazing relationships here, feel like my work has an impact, and have been supported by my superiors. I have a strong professional background and because of the size of the institution my skills have been truly utilized. I'm very proud to work here.
Because it is such a large institution, there is a huge learning curve and for my position, it has taken a long time for me to truly understand all the politics and personalities behind how the hospital is lead. I've learned how to manage navigating such an extensive place, but at times having to work through the many layers of leadership can be frustrating. Still - I would pick that as a con any day given the many pros.
Although many divisions offer a good amount of part time and flexible work schedules, our department does not. I think for us it comes down to leadership, but I am disappointed by this. I work in a smaller area of the hospital so this is not reflective of Cincinnati Children's overall, but it is something to consider if work/life balance is an issue.
Advice to Management
Continue to support employees and make them feel that all positions are vital to OUR important mission. Continue to expect excellence, while rewarding it at the same time. I am very impressed with the positive culture here, and hiring has a lot to do with the continuation of that culture.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cincinnati Children's Hospital (Cincinnati, OH).
Neutral, was asked basic interview questions, asked questions multiple times like they were looking for a certain answer that I was not giving them. Was interviewed by one person in a small room, pretty laid back.
