    I have been working at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are really good. Once you are hired, it is hard to get fired from here, So I've heard.
    Corporate discounts.

    Cons

    None that are a deal breaker

    Advice to Management

    give discounts on food in cafeteria for employees would be nice. It really adds up even if only buy once or twice a week. And bring back the fun employee appreciation week and things like that that I always her about.

    Pros

    great people to work with, plenty of room to shadow different departments, interesting work, always busy and not sitting at desk

    Cons

    It seemed that the entire department had issues working cohesively. This was an issue that was continued to being worked on. The other interns really did not apply themselves to the job. The intern positions were also cut down

    Pros

    Having worked in the main hospital, the Wood Center, and the Abrasion Research buildings, I can say that every area of CHOP exudes positivity in the workplace. Everyone truly wants to be there because it's the #1 children's hospital in the nation. It is also the #1 children's hospital because everyone truly want to work there.

    Cons

    It is often difficult to get information updated, such as a new phone number or address, through HR. My checks were mailed to my old residence for almost 2 months before the error was finally corrected.

    Advice to Management

    The process to apply for any job is long and laborious, but CHOP definitely take special precautions given that the work involved pertains to the well-being of children. Even so, I might be better to improve HR response time when hiring new recruits and dealing with all of that paperwork.

    Pros

    Everything we do at CHOP supports families and patients when they are at their most vulnerable. It really is a very special type of work and takes caring individuals to help meet the need of the patients .Employees can also take pride in the fact that “hospitals are the backbones of communities."

    Cons

    Working with co-workers who do not like their job and constantly complains. Having a bad attitude and gossiping can make your job difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the concerns of your employee.
    Provide additional training for managers to handle employee conflict and get HR involved before the problem gets out of hand.

    Pros

    The organization is willing to work with employees on career growth. I have received several certification classes already and I have been given approval for several others.

    Cons

    Decisions are made by consensus so sometimes it is hard to get things done when you need large number of people to agree to a particular change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
