I worked at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

I met many different doctors and patients from all different walks of life. I enjoyed seeing how a Hospital is maintained and run, instead of just seeing it as a place for treatment. I met many great coworkers that inspired me to look beyond medicine as just helping a patient, but rather healing and keeping up with a patients health even beyond a patient's discharge.

Cons

I think scheduling and acquiring information to and from HR took too long and caused more problems than it should have. If papers and the entire outlook on what we were doing were stated in the very beginning, their would be less applicants and more applicants that actually enjoyed and wanted to learn the business and or patient care of this hospital system.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would hope that HR would be more efficient and timely when dealing with our applications. I understand they have many things to get done as do the students themselves. I would also suggest taking more time to see if this internship is important and relevant to a student's academic major and or career path.

    Pros

    Great benefits from a well respected organization.

    Cons

    Very political.
    Middle management seems unable to cope with the rapid growth of the organization. You work with very poor systems and any issues are seen as complaints and not as valid concerns.
    Very limited growth opportunities with management that views any desire to move to other areas seen as disloyalty. Job assignments/opportunities based on who is liked and not offered to all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check to ensure that middle management is actually following the rules you set forth.
