    ConsAt times nurse staffing is an issue

    Pretty good so far

    Desktop Services (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsYou're always out in the field experiencing new things. You meet plenty of people and learn about new things at a rapid pace. The people are friendly and the ones who aren't always make for a great story. In addition, your 8 hour day goes by fast about 80 percent of the time. If you want to get your foot in the door it is the perfect place for it. Little to no micro managing(gift and a curse).

    ConsSometimes it seems like you are never going to get a permanent job. Management is very down to earth and friendly/approachable, but i would like for them to be more serious when its time to be. Full- Time pay is a huge gap from intern pay, and you are doing the same work if not more work, leaning towards the latter. Co workers are great, but sometimes they can never answer questions they should know, everybody isn't a genius, but when you are at a job for 10+ years you should know better. It also seems like a lot of people are scared to lose their job, so they withhold information from you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more serious with your employees when the time calls
    Make full-time employees do more work to join the select few that work very hard everyday.
    Talk to your superiors about hiring more inside and more frequently, there is more than enough work to go around.
    Start assigning projects to keep the lazy workers busy so they wont be bored.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not so positive

    Desktop Services Intern (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    Pros-Nurses and Executives are very friendly and willing to help when able
    -Getting out in the field and being hands on
    -If you're looking for a fun group to hang with, you found it.

    Cons-They refuse to get rid of/or discipline lazy employees
    -There is no room to grow and advance
    -The interns are training the other interns
    -While you get a lot of hands on, few are willing to teach
    -Interns do the vast majority of the work at $10/hour
    -Management does not have your back
    -Very few take blame for their mistakes, quick to deflect it onto interns.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour interns are the majority of your work, you treat us so poorly, we get no chance of advancement, just moving around into another department as an intern. Get rid of the lazy workers, stop laying so much on us interns, we're not full timers. Just have our backs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Over 5 years with flexibility great co-workers and ok administration

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsMy co-workers are great, they are the main reason why I've been there for so long. Management is a whole other story, however they are flexible with your schedule if it deals with school, benefits ok and transportation is close by.

    Consvery administrative driven, salary not very competitive compared to others around the area. Little consideration on loyalty and quality on nursing, more on the "rules".

    The poor treatment of the staff in my department was unbelievable!

    Security Officer (Former Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsThe pay is okay for starting out in the field.

    ConsThe overall treatment of employees in the security department is the worse I have seen in my many years of security experience. The job is not only unsafe but the hospital wont properly outfit the officers with self defense tools.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to protect staff, patients and visitors the first person you have to protect is the security officers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
