    Pros

    Career path/advancement
    Caring professionals that truly care about their patients and families
    Amazing place to learn and grow
    The people are so wonderful to work with and understand work and family balance
    Benefits

    Cons

    Administrative salaries not the highest but ok
    Administrative titles do not truly express what the job is we provide, they still have a "Department Head Secretary" title for a Administrative Coordinator that supports Director level stakeholders, and often managers as well
    If HR does not like you your manager has no say

    Advice to Management

    Change the administrative structure and see us for what we truly bring to the table!

    Pros

    Outstanding patient care, great colleagues, unparalleled wealth of knowledge

    Cons

    Rigorous work, driven to see many patients plus many other expectations that are not paid for or given protected time for, publish or perish mentality for research physicians

    Advice to Management

    Pay your physicians what they are worth. They are the reason you are so great.

    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

    Work location close to some amazing restaurants.

    Cons

    Management was clueless, no organization, the right hand didn't know what the left hand was doing, coworkers were evil and stabbed fellow co-workers in the back in order to rise the corporate ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone in HR and start over!
