Clinical Research Coordinator (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – January 17, 2019
Little chance for upward movement and overworked. They cover tuition costs, which is nice. Management isn't the best. Management are usually people that have been there for a while, not always the best workers. Overall it is a decent place to work at.
Medical Tech Processor (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – October 7, 2018
2nd shift was always busy so from the moment I clocked in it was fast paced until end of shift. we were in charge of processing all microbiology specimens for testing . We received and processed all specimens, verifying they were collected and transported properly. We then had to prep them for further testing. A large part of my job was plating the specimens to the correct media and storing them in the proper incubators for growth and analysis. While here I learned how to work in a fast paced in environment while maintaining attention to detail.
Lead Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – August 22, 2018
Working at OSU has been an interesting change in my career. The salary is mediocre compared to private pharmacy chains, but the benefits are above average. Health benefits kick in at day1 and are very competitive, plus tuition is 100% covered for full-time employees. The flip side to that is you are expected to be an employee first, and a student second. I enjoy working with a team of pharmacists who are happy with their work. The down side is all the red tape associated with working for the state. Getting anything changed takes a very long time. Overall, I would recommend the position, as growth is possible.
Supportive team environment, good work life balance, but the compensation is poor and there isn't much opportunity for growth.
MAP Coordinator for Transplant (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – October 14, 2018
There is a good work life balance, but not much opportunity for advancement. The team I currently work with is very supportive, but the compensation for my current position is poor. For the job that I am doing I should be paid much more. I'm a licensed independent social worker and I do not get paid for this license in my current position.
Medical Transcriptionist (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – December 19, 2018
Okay place to work but parking is a battle daily and you have to pay way too much for parking. They need to bring the price down for parking especially when it is so hard to find a parking space. The benefits are quite good especially if you are full-time. Good work culture and for the most part it is a pretty good place to work.
Staff is generally good to work with however being a large facility management can easily loose focus on your specific area/department and spend more time and money developing other areas. Great benefits and PTO.
I learned and achieved more than I ever thought I would with OSU. While working underneath Management that pushed me to go for all I could and learn more than I needed as a daily job function inspired me even more so to learn several departmental functions, as well as leadership and Management/Director one on one reporting.
Patient Access Coordinator (Former Employee) – OSU Wexner Medical Center Central Scheduling – March 8, 2018
Scheduling in the call center is all about the numbers and how many calls you take and how fast you can get through the calls. Patient access is very bad therefore making it a rather embarassing position for a "Patient Access Coordinator" position. If management could adequately keep staff and provide a much better system for training new people this could be better. The management is not empathatic towards their employees. The Director of the depatment is non-existent ever in person or via email.....so not sure what this title is about.
Everyone is so hung up on working here, well if you’re not a doctor or nurse, you’re NOTHING! these people treat you like dirt, rude work environment. My department keeps hiring lazy person after lazy person and it’s absolutely no teamwork. The management sucks, they spend more time trying to catch you doing something wrong instead of training us on the right thing we need to do. It’s a mess. We spend more time doing nothing then actually doing something. A lot of the management don’t know what they’re doing/or has let the title get to their heads, they can’t make the right calls for the department. It’s sad
You have a job!
Pay for parking, your bonus is taxed, hard to advance
Program Coordinator/Manager - Nursing (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – December 18, 2017
There is definitely a culture of collaboration and advancement of knowledge that exists here. Very qualified staff, they value advancement and improvement of each individual. High accountability of all employees, with training and advancement opportunities abounding. Having the CEO's wife insist that the hospital be designed like an expensive boutique hotel was a mistake, it is so easy to get lost and not understand where you are or where you are going. They need to erect signs and be clearer rather than trying to be something they are not, which is a hospital.
Great management, great benefits, many opportunities.
Extremely expensive parking, require high level degrees yet do not pay to match.
Educational Medical Institution setting high standards for excellence.
Staff Nurse II - Transplant Unit (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – April 9, 2018
A great hospital for Nurses!! The OSU Transplant Unit has the reputation for urgent, collaborative, compassionate high standards care that is reflected in every care member of the unit from nursing to housekeeping.We have had the fortune to have Nursing managers who continue to love and participate in hands on Nursing care, and are fierce nurse and patient advocates. OSU hospital offers Nurses many opportunities to advance in education and experience; certification in a specialty area is strongly encouraged once the nurse is oriented to a unit, and all nurses are strongly encouraged to seek higher staff levels (with compensation!) through a special program. Tuition reimbursement for nurses and family members is available. Nurses are expected to round with physicians on their patients, and are considered valuable members of the care team. All nurses are encouraged to participate in Unit and hospital committees--and their suggestions do make a difference and drive improvements in patient care!
A nursing Union, which is actually the Ohio States Nursing Association, that protects the interest of the patient by protecting the Nurses safety
The ever present tug of war between finances and staffing.
