    I have been working at Nationwide Children's Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Attracts top talent, plenty of resources available, prestige, looks good on a resume

    Cons

    Everyone is treated as replaceable. You're a small part in a huge company and you aren't made to feel like you matter. The company talks a big game about caring about their employees and work-life balance, but when something actually comes up, they are rigid and completely uncaring. There is a policy that you can't say anything that might negatively effect their "brand" so if you don't like it, you can't actually express it. Their handle on integrity is questionable and they invest in and protect management, even when that management is terrible. Employee turnover is astronomical. It's all about numbers and money, even though they constantly talk about how patient care is most important, it's not.

    Cliques are still prominent even though they say there isn't any, but that's everywhere. Parking when you start is terrible.
