    I worked at Temple University Health System

    Pros

    The health benefits are excellent for unionised workers, with a small copay and deduction . The retirement benefits as far as employer contributions improved and it now takes 3 years to be vested, down from 5. The pay for my position was high compared to other hospitals in the region, but that also included overtime which was drastically cut eventually. Tuition is reimbursed 100% and that includes if you take classes outside of Temple University although this is only reimbursed at the end of the semester and not over what Temple University costs per credit hour but eligibility is from the first day of work

    Cons

    How about this most employees surveyed about 3 years ago would not have picked Temple as their healtthcare provider. There was alot of hope in the hospital when the new CEO took over, but the only changes were a facelift for the hospital, entraces and lobbies and brand new corporate offices but not much else done to improve the overall work areas. There was alot of management bias in my department, Evaluations were skewed and not at all reflective of performance. It was a problem getting the department to pay for any continuing education classes or for conferences or memberships to professional societies

    Pros

    Temple Univeristy Healht Sytem is a challenging environement which poses an opportunity for young and up and coming people. You are exposed to challenging problems that many at the same level will never see until they are managers. This comes with a cost of sometimes heavy workload. The management tean, including Executive Leadership, is very inviting and approachable in both the office and casual setting like lunch. TUHS also has educational benefits that allow reimbursement both at the Temple University and other accredited universities. Management makes a sinsere effort to support professional development. Executive Management is very strong and work together as a team.

    Cons

    Wtih the opportunites comes heavy workload (at times). It can also fluctuate with changing priorities that can look to be without reason. Also, the skillset of peers is inconsistent so you may be working with a brilliant star one moment and someone that may just be doing what they need to make it thorugh the day. It can be frustrating if you are the star. But stars will shine brighteer and find more opportunities to build up their career. While some may be concerned about locations, it is very safe at all hours and is v ery convenient to center city and the outer suburbs. In that sense TUHS is a jewel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee evalautions are not set up to measure performance and most always are rated high regardless of their true ability. The evaluation score directly determines the annual increase so the top ten percent will get about the same as thee middle and maybe even the bottom ten percent. Management will provide direct and constructive feedback but there is no weeding out of staff and nothing to distinguish the top performers. Other than that the CEO and his team are strong and have made tremendous progress.
