Former EmployeeWorked at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, OH.

What I like

I love being able to work on collaborative teams. I was able to publish and present with a team at a national conference. I also love pediatrics

What I dislike

At the end of my employment I felt the hours required outside work were overwhelming and I was not getting support from my supervisor or management to cut back.

Suggestions for improvement

I am not sure . I think they are doing a great job overall. Sometimes in very large companies the bottom staff seem left out

EmployeeWorked at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, OH at the time of review.

What I like

My coworkers are wonderful. We have also been very lucky that we have received 100% of our pay for most of the COVID pandemic when being called off, they had to decrease to 80% due to the pandemic lasting longer than expected. Minimal furloughs were made and they have been very supportive in many other ways. My management has encouraged me to earn another degree and certifications. They work well with you to ensure that you are able to meet your career goals.

What I dislike

There can sometimes be a breakdown in communication from upper management. There can be a lack of support of policy when it comes to appropriate admissions for certain units.

Suggestions for improvement

I feel as if this company is always working to improve in the areas it needs. They are very receptive to constructive criticism

Work-Life Balance

Gives you opportunity to pick up shifts if you want and works with you on your preferred schedule

Environmental Friendliness

Recycling bins are used more as trash bins

Challenging Work

It depends on the day. And my unit’s patient population can be very heavy and overwhelming sometimes

Freedom to work independently

Management on my unit can micromanage a lot.

I work in the Health Information Management Department with charts. It’s rather boring, needs done. It’s a good temp job

Temp / ContractorWorked at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, OH at the time of review.

What I like

Good job, just not for me. It’s extremely strict in my department, but I hear it’s not so I’m other departments. There’s only a 5 minute leeway before you get dinged if you are late - even if you get stuck behind a car accident or something like a good excuse. This among other far too strict rules - in my opinion.

What I dislike

Already provided in the last explanation.

Suggestions for improvement

I would give more leeway for people with good excuses as to why they are late. I would also allow the temps to have time off occasionally - I’m on a strict no time off, paid or unpaid, and I’ve been here since July. It’s been 6 months since I took a day off that wasn’t because I was sick. I need a break.
