Largest department in the world. Research and growth oriented. Opportunity for specialization. Difficult work life balance as FTE. Staff works together as a family. Very supportive co-workers. Entry level pay.
Cincinnati Children's was my work family for a couple of years from 2006-2008. Typical days included being productive in a collaborative team environment where management governed democratically and the culture was nimble, relaxed, and welcoming to all walks of life. The hardest part of the job was managing the high turn over with entry level positions and scheduling paid time off as we were critical personnel. The most enjoyable part of Children's was the culture and the people. The hardest part of the job was taking a non-profit salary that wasn't fully competitive. If I knew then what I know now though, I'd keep that lower salary and be grateful for the opportunity to work in such a culturally robust organization. I'd recommend working in Cincinnati Children's Hospital in a heartbeat.
Cincinnati Children's provides an outstanding environment for children facing complex medical issues. The facility is highly supportive of families and encourages parental involvement. Staff are also supported to a great extent and their concerns are addressed in a thorough and timely fashion.
Great benefits backage/discounts/healthcare/HSA
High turnover rate, pay not commensurate for experience, not much room for professional advancement unless a degree is earned, management could improve on resolving employee concerns
Registered Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – April 3, 2017
Clinic starts at 8am; along with the nurses we prepare clinic. Multidisciplinary team so there are a lot of bodies in one area. Help with time managements, getting providers in rooms in a timely manner. Appoints last up to 3 hours clinic in only in the morning and we see average 12 patients.

This is an ok place to work. the pay is very low compared to what other places pay for the same type of work. unless you are in the healthcare field I would recommend working someplace that will pay you what you deserve
Manager (Current Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – March 27, 2017
I have always loved working for such a reputable employer and will remain a dedicated employee. World class physicians and a great research department will continue to bolster this as a top hospital nationally.

It sounds good to say, "yes I work at CCHMC" but working there was a nightmare. I dreaded getting up for work everyday. I worked as a MA in the Endo/Diabetes department and it was the worst MA position that I've ever held. The RNs in that department treat MAs as if we don't know anything despite the fact that we had went to school and had to become certified to qualify for this position. The manager has her favorites so there is no open-door policy.
