supportive, opened and engaged, interdisciplinary cooperation, teamwork
Chaplain Resident (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OH – August 14, 2013
Pros: free lunches, support for education
Generally the day started with report from on-call chaplain and referrals. On CPE days we started with interfaith devotion. The relationship to management of the department was friendly and professional. I had a good relationship with my co-workers. We communicated unclear situations and remained in relationship. The hardest part was not to be judgmental – more... in cases of abuse. To experience God's presence in the middle of suffering. The most enjoyable part was to follow a family over a longer time and see them deepen their spirituality. – less
Very good place to work forthe work and research that they do for the kids, however as an employees you are not treated as an indivdual
Customer Service Representive (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OH – June 6, 2013
I register incominng patients into a outpatient clinic. With the registeration, scheduling and answering phone lines are also a major part of the responsiblities. Management is in a totally seperate location, so their ablitiy to really recognize and evaluate job performance lacks knowledge. There are two other ASR's in the area, we all share the same – more... duties daily. The most rewarding part of my job is that some days I am a mother for those who lack that parental involvement and being ablr to give my honest opinion of family values the hospital tries to commit to upholding. – less
Employee (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OH – May 23, 2013
Pros: you have a job
Cons: management, not able to transfer unless you know somebody in another dpt., hr is unfair and unprofessional
Been stuck in the same job on a sucky shift for a decade. Management does not listen, too many chiefs. If you're not an RN they do NOT care about you and even then if you don't know people and aren't a favorite you can forget about being happy here. Good luck
Sr Scheduling Agent/ Complex Scheduling Specialist (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OH – May 15, 2013
Pros: job security
Customer Service Scheduling appointments for families all over the world. You learn so much about Families and how to better assist them everyday. I learned alot of Medical terminology and Schedule over 29 Different Departments in the 3 yrs I've been employed here. The Hardest part is dealing with the emotion from the families and trying to balance – more... the schedules we have to offer – less
Manager (Current Employee), Cincinnati – April 9, 2013
Pros: caring for children
Children's Hospital is well known for incredible research and the wonderful care that is given to the children in the community, that is why I was so excited to receive an offer to work there. The excitement faded fast even for someone that goes to work with a positive attitude and works hard to help others. Trying to be a professional, but this organization – more... does not operate as if it truly cares for employees, starting with the HR Department.They are not there to be a "resource" for employees. It could be so much better! – less
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OH – January 30, 2013
Cons: facility is so big that its easy to get lost
A typical day at CCHMC is non stop and busy. You definitely have to be prepared for anything because things can change and a matter of seconds. There is never a dull moment and I'm a witness to say you learn something new each day. This can be anywhere from a new way to do a procedure, a new way to prep, using new medical devices to how to take care – more... of yourself. There is a lot of teamwork, including management, which ensure patient safety and good outcomes. The hardest part of the job is trying to find down time to get everything done within a small time frame so its all about time mangement. The most enjoyable part of the job for me is seeing the smiles on children faces even when times are tough for them. – less
Travel Nurse (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OH – January 28, 2013
Cons: drive back and forth
I was privilaged to work here has a travel nurse for a little over two years. I was as happy with them as they were with me and kept renewing my contract. I was a staff RN in the oncology/ BMT unit. I was responsible for patient care and administration of chemo and blood products. This is a truly remarkable facility. The hardest part was driving back – more... and forth every day to work there. The mose enjoyable was making a difference and being there for so many individuals. Most of my nurisng career was spent floating as part of a resource pool. I usually did not spend much time in any one area. Working here for two years I was able to get very close to several children that I lost. So dealing with that was very difficult at times. – less
Buyer (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OH – January 22, 2013
Pros: benefits start immediately
Cons: everything, poor management no direction, no flexability
The company may have placed 3rd in the country, but it is the worst place to work for. Micro-management, unfair treatment. It's not a true Buyer's postion. Nothing enjoyable about this place, you have to race to the time clock before and after work, NO flexability. DEAD END job, no advancement. Very stressful work enviornment due to poor mangement.
Management awful, Supervisors just as awful, some co-workers in Protective Services were alright to work with, others were downright lazy, complaining about having to do anything. A few were playing the FMLA game and taking 12 weeks off per year in conjunction with off days/vacations. Unqualified people being promoted happened all too often at the expense – more... of others who were more educated and qualified. Others had the attitude that they were "owed" something, I wont elaborate but use your common sense and you will know what I am referring to. Just glad I had the sense to get the hell out of there on my terms. Worst position I have ever held. – less
I am living this nightmare now with my Manager. Lazy, sorry and worthless. I am giving up many years of service because of someone that has not been there long at all. What a shame!
Cincinnati Children's Hospital
Job Work/Life Balance
Preventive Cardiology was a fantastic team with two great bosses.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OH – November 15, 2012
Pros: the experience i learned will stay with me and priceless.
Cons: the personality conflicts were not appropriately managed by upper management.
The Director and Assistant Director made the group successful; despite having an office of very diverse personnel we were always able to work together; my favorite aspect was the challenge which was a daily occurrence whether it be budgets or payroll or assisting with writing grants.
