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

    Pros

    A ~3% raise is typical each year (even during the 2008 recession). There is a pension. Job security through internal transfers (though not always in the perfect position).

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are not as high as other institutions. Employer no longer matches retirement contributions.

    I have been working at Cincinnati Children's Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Helping kids. Helping families.
    New facilities.
    Dedicated hard working staff. Staff go above and beyond daily.
    Lots of breakthroughs.
    You may end up in a good team with enough staff and resources. You can have a good experience.
    Good mission.

    Cons

    Many people leave for better paid jobs. Cuts mean people leaving aren't replaced. Remaining staff have to take on two or three times as much work for no extra pay or even thanks. Constantly on call even when off the clock.
    Climate of stress, cutbacks, no help, no support.
    Toxic, clicky, bullying atmosphere.
    Seen several managers treat people badly to the point of tears.
     Lots of unprofessional gossip which leads to lack of trust.
    New buildings taking over local community housing now demolition site.
    I have never felt so undervalued for so much effort. Manager takes the credit and is quick to pass the blame if anything goes wrong. Worst place I ever worked.

    Advice to Management

    The cost saving may be necessary. Ask the staff how to do this better. Communicate better. Give the staff the resources needed to complete the job properly.
    Don't ask for safety improvements to be reported but then say nothing can be done to improve the situation.
    Hard working people who would work above and beyond are treated badly. There is a complete imbalance in work load. It may be you are trying to increase the pressure until a diamond is formed but in the meantime you will lose a lot of dedicated people who used to be proud to work here.

    If you only highlight the outstanding work of the same few people it seems like the other 15000-16000 people aren't doing anything or valued.

    There is a disconnect between when information is shared to faculty on topics that should be for all. We are all meant to be in this together.

    Having listening sessions seemed to be a formality rather than an opportunity to speak about these issues without the fear of having an already hard environment made even more unpleasant.

    People that leave are happier, what can you do to get good people to stay?

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

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, and a sense of belonging and making a difference to patients and families.

    Cons

    Management doesn’t care how lower level employees feel or take new ideas well. Unarmed officers are sitting ducks for a disaster to happen. Most officers possess extensive Military and or Law Enforcement experience but the CEO and the Board are worried the sight of firearms will “send the wrong message” although there’s a full time CPD Officer that sits in the ED lobby 24/7. At least issue Stun Guns to give us a fighting chance.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the ideas of your employees.
    Don’t be afraid of change.
    Redo the rank structure to give others the chance to advance and get the shift differential that every other department in the Hospital offers its employees.
    Pay your 1st shift striped Officers a premium for all of the extra work and responsibility they have.

    Pros

    Great Mission, Dedicated and Talented Coworkers

    Cons

    Sr leadership has no vision aside from cost cutting and can't get aligned to save their lives. The overall academic culture creates a very hierarchical structure where only doctors' opinions matter, and there is little to no career development for non-faculty members

    Advice to Management

    Look for true leaders - the current sr management are petty, short-sighted and disrespectful to each other and to the many employees who work so hard to care for kids. Michael, you are the CEO - make the tough decisions and get everyone on board.
