    I have been working at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

    Pros

    I've enjoyed my time working here part time. It's nice to be surrounded by people who are working in a place they really want to be.

    Cons

    This, like other hospitals, can feel like a slow moving, bureaucratic place. Everything is pretty protected and shuttered.
