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

    Pros

    Wonderfulhospital mission and dedicated frontline staff. Financially secure. Research driven. Support for quality improvement.

    Cons

    Politics! Unhealthy attitudes and acceptance towards outsiders. Culture is driven by people who have never worked outside of CCHMC. Close minded middle management that promotes or reassigns people rather than address the issues of bullying, undermining & incompetence!

    Advice to Management

    Carrfully evaluate mid management personnels' performance against their job descriptions, especially in allied health. Senior leadership in patient srrvices needs to be much more visible and available to frontline staff. Be more strategic in initiatives because your staff is getting initiative fatigued. Never loose site ( which is close to happening) of WHY CCHMC exists - it's for the patients & their families! That is the bottom line, not money or egos!

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

    Pros

    CCHMC has a great work environment. There are so many educational and cultural events for faculty and staff as well as access to work out classes at UC.

    The CRC II position allows you to gain great experience coordinating a variety of different hospital research projects and gaining exposure to all components of the process (IRB proposal, protocol development, consenting patients, data collection, data analysis, writing components of the manuscript, literature reviews etc). Your tasks depend on the research project, your PI, and most importantly your department. Overall, it's an excellent position, especially for someone straight from undergrad!

    Cons

    The CRC II position seems like it is often a stepping stone for people who want to gain experience in health care research for a few years then move on (other jobs, grad school, med school etc). Every department has a different structure, and some aren't the best at planning the upward mobility process for their clinical research professionals.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more concrete, well-described process in every department for how clinical research professionals can grow their career.

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

    Pros

    Chance to truly make a difference in patients' lives. My supervisor was amazingly supportive of CRCs and led by example.

    Cons

    Low pay, lack of upward mobility, inept and obstructionist middle-management. Lots of employees with entitlement attitude which sometimes led to toxic work environment.

    All clinical research PI's and staff should have been moved to T bldg when it opened. A lot of my work day was spent walking from my desk to the research clinic and back again, which was extremely counterproductive.

    Advice to Management

    For middle-management: Pay closer attention to changing the outcome, rather than focusing so much on the bottom line. I worked in multiple divisions at CCHMC and the business managers/administrators were by far the biggest roadblock to progress.
