  5. The culture really depends on the service line you are within. The clinical segment runs everything.

    Great benefits, good time off and great tuition reimbursement.

    Lack of clear direction, location is in west Philly, culture can be annoying.

    Pros

    Time off is very generous, medical benefits are good. Friendly management, decent understanding of work/life balance.

    Cons

    Every single day is stressful, too much work on too few employees. No bonuses, no real raises other than annual "cost of living." Only get a real raise with a promotion, which takes forever and is never guaranteed.

    Pros

    It was a friendly work environment where the management was always available for assistance. My coworkers were welcoming and everyone worked well as a team.

    Cons

    I felt it was difficult to obtain advancements within the company. Penn Medicine seniority often trumped education and experience on employment applications.

    Advice to Management

    New regulations and changes to the company should be discussed with the affected offices. Some implementations that the higher-ups may have believed would improve employee efficiency resulted in problems.

    Pros

    The people I had the privilege of working for at Penn Medicine were first class. The professional work environment was met by friendly management and strong leaders who were willing to coach me to succeed at my job. There were also many opportunities for advancement within the company.

    Cons

    The main con of working for any company so large are that it can be difficult to navigate professional channels. There are, however, many paths available if looking to move around the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Loved working for Penn so much. Some constructive criticism for upper management would be to make sure to keep downward structure strong and to be open with employees about their personal goals.

    Pros

    Executive leadership has the right ideals and visions and are really looking to build a collaborative, innovative, and engaging work environment.

    Cons

    Many director level or manager level leaders have been in the institution for a long time and have egos due to Penn's status as Top 10 Hospital in the Nation and other awards. It is difficult to bring in new ideas and new approaches.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that hiring practices truly reflect what kind of culture the organization is hoping to build. There are so many brilliant people at this hospital but few are working synergistically to build something amazing. In general there is an over-reliance on individual abilities so there are many individualized programs and processes. The organization needs to build better structures and processes for cohesive work that improves the system as a whole, or else we are all spinning our wheels needlessly.

  10. I really enjoyed the personal experience of working on a small research team

    Pros

    The people and the resources were great. It was also nice how diverse the group of people I was surrounded by were. Furthermore, Penn Medicine has numerous events for personal growth and development and to learn about other current projects.

    Cons

    The facilities hindered our ability to conduct work on occasion. I was working in a laboratory that does animal testing and they would stress the animals by moving them.

    To do over would be to never have accepted this job

    Pros

    Flexibility. .relaxed dress...work from opportunities given to some not all

    Cons

    Racist environment no advancement opportunities for minorities. Job opportunities given to whites while minorities with experience and a educational background are overlooked

    Horrible coworkers

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring management family members.
    Create promotion opportunities for employees at a professional level
     Stop labeling all black employees clerical staff members. Clean house starting with upper management.
