    Really focus on diversity and inclusion, making sure all patients and employees feel welcome. Pay is decent for a public sector job.

    They have changed their benefits in the last few years and compared to what we use to get our new benefits aren't that great. Short staffed in a lot of areas so could be working long hours.

    I worked at Nationwide Children's Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Exciting work and the opportunity to see some state of the art procedures and facilities. Nice holiday events. Good mission. Parking is affordable, if you make it into a garage.

    Cons

    Wage was lower than comparable positions at surrounding hospitals. Nature of the work can be stressful, so be prepared for that.

    Advice to Management

    Growth isn't necessarily the most important thing. Rankings won't keep a hospital functional; retaining quality employees will.

    Pros

    Steady work always hours to pick up

    Cons

    Most employees are 21-25 years old. Childrens loves to hire new grads, so they can mold them into the nurse the want. Scares the heck out of parents that seemly have children caring for you NICU baby

    Advice to Management

    Concern your self with the employee that has experience and help them fit in. If you are over 30 you are not going to fit in

    Benefits, dedication to diversity, hours.

    Extremely cliqued up. Review process is based solely on your manager's opinion of you. Lack of upward mobility, no accountability in "supply department" managment. Absentee managers.

    If a workcenter or deparment has high attrition rates start looking at the manager for issues with their techniques/attitude/ability.

    I worked at Nationwide Children's Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many children who are treated at Nationwide Children's Hospital are being treated for debilitating illnesses or injuries. I felt honored that through my work I was able to help the children and families in a small way.

    Cons

    The growth is so incredibly fast that employees cannot keep up with the changes due to lack of communication.

    Advice to Management

    It is imperative that employees are kept in the loop of all the changes to ensure the work gets done efficiently and the families/patients needs continue to b e met.

    Pros

    Amazing environment, top of the line equipment and research teams. Amazing and innovative physicians, nurses, and employees. Children are a privilege to care for.

    Cons

    Feeling confused about choosing an insurance plan, HR not offering much support with this and I am new to this stuff. Young single mother, wanting to make the best decision. Doing a lot of reading and googling.

    Advice to Management

    HR should be more helpful with choosing insurance, clearly explaining the pros and cons and answering questions.
