Pros

This is a great hospital to work for. I feel they really take care of their employees. I like the friendly atmosphere. The patient is of highest priority here at CHOP. We truly care about these children as if they are our own. Ability to advance your career. I have worked other places and they don't compare to CHOP

Cons

Wish our salaries were equal to the other salaries in the city.

    Pros

    Rewarding mission, excellent clinical care, groundbreaking research

    Cons

    Very little accountability with non-clinical employees, multiple processes with little training or rationale, no infrastructure - every department acts as its institution, no hierarchy, lack of parking

    Advice to Management

    Invest in IT, encourage testing phases of new systems/processes before rollout

    Pros

    The pay is good compared to other hospitals outside of the city. The work is interesting.

    Cons

    CHOP doesn't seem to want to invest in current employees. There is a wealth of talent in the department, but whenever there is an opening, there is more emphasis on outside candidates. There is a "career ladder", but the same standards are not applied to everyone. It seems that if you threaten to quit or complain, you don't have to work as hard for your promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the same standards for everyone when considering promotions. If someone threatens to quit, rethink that employee's value (especially if it's not the first time).

    Look within for future talent. People get disgruntled when they are being passed over for openings that they qualify for. Invest in your current employees. There is a reason you hired these people in the first place.
