I learned and fine tuned my skills and became very confident in my ability as a nurse
Nurse (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – September 12, 2017
My days were always busy and very productive. I give credit to this hospital and the staff that I worked with for giving me the knowledge and skills that I have achieved. I was on the ground floor to learn about heart transplant and the treatment and medication for those patient. I will be forever thankful for what they taught me even the pressure that was part of the job. The hardest part of the job was leaving.
Benfits and the expience in the different areas of the hospital
short lunch breaks and not enough time to chart within schedule hours
Good company to work for, but poor management Management should take some courses on how to lead with compassion and patience. The manager treated its employees with disrespect and lack of attention to lead
very busy day, the patient make my day, they be so happy to see me, and I be happy to see them, management help when im busy, mulit cuture their, the hardest part of the day is saying by to my resident, the most enjoyable part of the day is putting a smile on a patient face, when they are not feeling well.
Construction Technician (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – August 8, 2017
Working for OSU is great, in most instances. The bad: parking and sub-standard wages are generally the biggest gripe here.
Being bused a mile and a half to work makes emergency situations harder to deal with, a huge negative if you have young children. Although it seems as though the parking contractor is finally giving us a break from the $500/ year rates, the general concern is that we will end up paying just as much next year with even less convenience.
Across the board, pay scales are way below market averages. The benefits are decent with a total of 24% of your income being invested to a retirement account, but that doesn't really help when you're trying to pay rent/mortgage, childcare, all your household bills and the outrageous parking fees. You can't eat benefits.
Good place to work with multiple opportunities if you are patient.
Scheduler (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – July 22, 2017
Definitely would recommend OSU Wexner Medical Center. They offer a good pay scale, and there are always positions open so the opportunity for advancement or change is always there. However, though it is advised at hiring that you only have to work 6 mos in one position before moving up/on, that is not true. You have to put in at least a year, if not more, so patience is virtue here.
Good pay, good opportunities
Management is not involved, not supportive, of issues
Year 1 was great, working in PCU/step down unit with 3:1 patient to nurse ratio. Since moving to the new unit in the brain and spine hospital with 4:1 nurse to patient ratios the workload has been unmanageable.
A typical day at work is when we give each shift change report and smile to each with "have a nice day". The shift report gives me clues on whether the day has gone well or what is expected of the coming shift. When I worked before shift report, I like to know if it was all well when I call my colleagues, I usually ask them if there is any thing that need to be done or could have done differently. My ideal work culture will the one that guarantees dependability of co-workers. The hardest part of the work, is lack of communication that led to delay or unintended consequences. The most enjoyment part of the job is when a client is satisfied, happy, healthier and quality of care is recognizably high.
This hospital provide a great workplace culture for student looking to get hand on experience in the hospital. However, getting hire by the hospital hold some challenges as people remain in the same position till retirement.
Taylor Ave - Unit Clerical Associate (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – July 7, 2017
I've learned a numerous of skills at Ohio State Medical Center where I have been employed for 9 years. I've learned how different patient units operate, cashiering, I've been able to explain to patient units(I use to work in nutrition Department) how the nutrition department operates so they can have a better understanding of why some food deliveries may not be a easy transition at all times. Management have always been willing to accommodate school schedules for employee, very diverse working environment. If I had to chose something hard about my job is trying to accommodate every single patient even when you've felt like you've done everything possible to make the situation better. I enjoy my coworkers and the team work.
What makes this so funny, is, I am a huge Michigan fan. This is the best place I have ever been employed. Can you say "retire?" The money is not the "greatest", it is not bad either though, but it is comparable for the field I am in.
Advancement, free/cheap education as long as you are an employee and 50% discount for family.
Great place to work. Privides an excellent benefits package including a traditional state retirement pension.
Medical Records Coding Specialist (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – June 21, 2017
I worked at this hospital for over 20 years. I was pleased to have been a part of this wonderful hospital that is known not only in the US but also internationally. This hospital is of the highest ratings that other hospitals with the same level of care that OSU brings to the population.
Great salary and the opportunity to work from home.
The job is stressful, the job requires knowledge of codes and regulations, these codes and regulations change constantly
