I worked at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Pros

- Great place to work if you have children.
- Co-workers and colleagues were fantastic.
- Benefits package was pretty outstanding for the region.
- Knowing the work contributed to a much larger and positive picture made it easy to go in and get the job done.

Cons

- In the time that I was there, I watched the department degenerate into a heavily political environment.
- Good people with double-digit years of service left the organization as a result of the political environment; major red flag.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Offer better training and the time for team members to focus on it.
- Change the focus from politics back to the staff helping the children.
- Continue to support the culture which has existed there for so long; family, teamwork, and striving for the greater good.
