    I have been working at Cincinnati Children's Hospital part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Room for growth
    Very interesting studies
    Every day is different
    Networking is huge at Children's
    Lots of patient and family interaction

    Cons

    I did the work of a CRC even though I was technically a student.
    Extremely slow in the hiring process, even when hiring from within the company
    I was never offered the job when a CRC position opened up in my lab even though I've been doing the job for 18 months

    Advice to Management

    Offer student workers positions before looking outside, we know a lot and we require a lot less training.

    I worked at Cincinnati Children's Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    CCHMC is a wonderful place to work overall. This is an amazing employer that is avidly involved in the Cincinnati areas and the community. There are so may wonderful opportunities for their employees to invest in their own professional growth and they're given the opportunity to really make a difference in the patients lives.

    Cons

    With all the good there are some down falls. It just depends on who your manager is; in my almost 4 years there I had a new manager about every 9 months. So it grew increasingly hard to develop as a employee and person when you have to start from the beginning with a new supervisor and learn their mgmt styles.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to your front line employees, that is who the patients deal with and see; if they are unhappy it will show and the patients and families will notice.

    Pros

    Fun place to work, everyone strives to give the best care, & it's rewarding to work at one of the best children's hospitals in the US.

    Cons

    Management is really a hit or miss, tuition reimbursement only covers certain degrees (Nursing, of course, but it's difficult for someone who wants to stay in the medical field, however not pursue nursing.)

    I have been working at Cincinnati Children's Hospital full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Working for a Top #3 Nationally Rated Pediatric Hospital has been a very rewarding experience
    -by far the best place I have ever worked, if I could stay forever I would
    -Various opportunities to promote & transfer
    -Educational opportunities with tuition reimbursement
    -Good benefits and competitive pay

    Cons

    -Everyone is striving to be the best at CCHMC which is great for the patients, but a competitive atmosphere can sometimes feel a bit "cut-throat" between co-workers
    -huge expansion coming soon which puts a bit of "budget" stress on some in finance, not much of a con for those of us who are still employed full-time because the hospital is obviously doing well

    Advice to Management

    -management seems to be under a lot of stress, which leads to poor morale in some areas.
    -some managers have little concept of work/life balance
    -don't lose sight of why this institution exists & the valuable employees who have brought you this far

    I worked at Cincinnati Children's Hospital full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I was fortunate to work with good people ( but that is determined by division and its leadership). Tuition assistance is a good program everyone should take advantage of.

    Cons

    I never felt that there was much opportunity for advancement and looking at my peers and mentors that had the same position and no advancement for more than a decade is disheartening when considering my own chances of opportunity within the frame work of my specific role.

    Advice to Management

    When you are not the best opportunity for salary increases due to funding being grant driven, be more creative with title positions and advancement, and roles so that resumes with you listed as a former employer provides more chances for future opportunity. HR should provide better opportunity for employees other than lateral transfers or minimal salary increase when the market is more competitive and they are more competitive with new employees that come to the hospital rather than retaining current employees.
