    I worked at Temple University Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Incredible hospital mission and history. Many lovely coworkers. Excellent pay, benefits and PTO.

    Cons

    Politically motivated to the extreme. If you're not the type of person who follows closely at the feet of a senior exec, you won't fit in. It takes months to get anything done here, and it's absurd. Also, forget any work/life balance. It's expected that you stay later into the night, and god forbid you didn't see an email right away because you were sleeping.

    Advice to Management

    Quit the hierarchical system of operating.

    I worked at Temple University Health System full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers to get you through the day to day operations. They are the only ones to rely on and to have your back. The compensation is excellent, but you pay dearly.

    Cons

    A department head bully makes your life a living hell and Administration knowingly allows it. There is a very fine line between her business practices and abuse. They are aware of it, but allow this person to to constantly berate and belittle those that are really trying to be successful. To come into work each day and not know it is going to be your last is beyond stressful. It is definitely no way to live your live daily. This person thrives on making people feel small and even making grown men cry. The intimidator is just bad for business and HR plays along.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the corrupt people and don't allow a department head to treat people so poorly. It does not do much for your reputation and will chase really good people away. Release the beast!

    Pros

    Very flexible workplace, schedule, and very laid back to counteract the high stress situations we sometimes have to handle.

    Cons

    As a part timer, which I am now since I go to school, sometimes difficult to pick up hours that match my schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You rock!! Thank you for being so flexible with my whacky schedule and school requirements.
