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

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers that have your back/are very helpful
    Great patient population, a well-rounded experience and education on a variety of diseases (also get overflow from just about every unit in the hospital)
    Self-scheduling (could be both pro and con)
    Alternate holidays (again could be both pro and con)
    Opportunity to join committees throughout the hospital
    Pediatrics, only hospital in the Cincinnati area you can be in Peds unless you are in the NICU at the area hospitals

    Cons

    Company is working towards a Lean structure - cutting benefits previously offered that used to make them competitive but now are just mediocre.
    -Cutting costs to save up for another building when they can't fill the last one they expanded on (Liberty campus).
    -Increasing patient to nurse ratios to again cut budgets to save up for new building.
    -Reducing pensions previously offered.
    -Pay to park in the garages on-site from your paycheck
    -Hospital boasts about offering support for furthering education, but they're selective on what they will do tuition reimbursement for (will not help pay for certain NP programs for the last couple years). Also tries to say they're competitive pay but still under-par for most area hospitals.
    -If you work third shift don't expect any of the extra perks that the hospital offers day shift - pizza days for high census? all ordered same time of day so night shift's has been sitting out all day and no longer edible. Free 15 minute neck massages during nurse's week? only offered noon-3pm.

    Advice to Management

    A lean business structure is not intended for the healthcare field where lives are at stake. Pay the extra dollar to take care of your staffing needs and keep them happy since they're the ones at the front lines, saving lives and the face of the organization that the families see.

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

    Pros

    I loved everything about my job. The little kids had cancer and they still smiled and made us smile. Even when kids are on their death bed they are so special

    Cons

    I don't really have anything bad to say about working there. It's a great place to work and they treat their employees very good.

    Advice to Management

    I was in management but I would say for the upper management to not push your weight around so much.

    I have been working at Cincinnati Children's Hospital part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is very good for a part-time job needing no previous experience, very flexible hours for the position. Work expected of you is manageable, with peaks and throughs.

    Cons

    My particular lab has a very bad team dynamic- we have even had meetings addressing this.

    Advice to Management

    Make expectations of each employee very clear, delegate responsibility more fairly, provide frequent feedback and offer constructive criticism and help.

    Pros

    Productive work
    Friendly environment
    Cutting edge projects
    Seminars were held regularly going over the latest innovations in relevant fields which provided valuable insight

    Occasional limited direction
    Autonomy was useful but occasionally burdensome. As a student it was sometimes necessary to have more directive when progressing in work

    Pros

    The pay and hours are good. The managers seem understanding.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    Great mission, great vision, lots of ambition and drive to provide top notch care to children across the world. Frontline clinicians are world class!

    Cons

    Lots and lots of layers. Too many leaders with their individual styles, priorities and projects causing lots of work and rework... very inefficient and schizophrenic. The volume of change and demands placed on mid-level leaders is too much- very difficult to find harmony between personal and professional life. Every one in the organization has initiative fatigue.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce layers. Get sr leaders to the sites of care to see where the real work happens. Encourage frontline leaders to maintain clinical competence by working at the bedside from time to time.
