    I have been working at Cincinnati Children's Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have worked here for almost twenty years and up until the past two have had a great experience. Excellent nurses who are motivated and passionate about what they do helped to achieve magnet status.

    Cons

    The culture is changing. Nurses are encouraged to get advanced degrees with very little opportunity for advancement and increase in pay. Therefore, many long-time nurses with these advanced degrees are leaving and going to other industries where they can make more money. Seems like Children's cares more about status than their nurses.

    Advice to Management

    Do everything you can to retain your good nurses. They are not easily replaced. You have to pay for the higher level nurses if you expect them to stay. Seems like you are trying to get rid of them.

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

    Pros

    The company as a whole is great. Our mission reflects wonderful values, and we do incredible work for the Cincinnati community and communities across the world. The research is top-notch, and so is the health care provided.

    Cons

    The benefits are okay, but not as competitive as other places in terms of paid time off, salary, or child-related benefits. There also isn't a ton of flexibility in jobs or room for creativity/exploring your own passions; you're essentially at the mercy of your supervisor/PI when in the research field.

    Advice to Management

    We're a children's hospital.. please try to help employees with children rather than apologizing and stonewalling them when they express difficulties. Paid parental leave, etc. for employees with children would be great.

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

    Pros

    As Scientist it is a dream to work their. You can be train really easily on a lot of different technologies! You have several cores which will take care of your samples making you saving time. You can built collaboration easily and make a really good science. In a multicultural team that makes you think about thing differently etc. In other words, I recommand.
    Nonetheless, I spend a lot of time in the lab. Lot more that it is specified on my contrat but, it is worthy!

    Cons

    It is a really big complex so it is easy to be lost between the different location/service
