    Current Employee - Coordinator  in  Philadelphia, PA
    Current Employee - Coordinator in Philadelphia, PA

    I have been working at Temple University Health System full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits and 4 weeks of vacation

    Cons

    No training, No advancement. Temple's motto: "Reward for good work is MORE work!".
    There are hardly any room to jump into another role, basically stuck in the same role you got hired. No communication amongst departments and no processes in place. Mom and POP shop. Totally disorganized and no one cares.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell your good workers to get out as soon as possible before they are tasked at doing 2-3 full-time jobs in 1.

    I worked at Temple University Health System full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It was always a pleasure for me to help patients and family members with questions regarding their appointments or direction.

    Cons

    To me, the downside was working with lazy people who wasted their time complaining instead of using that energy to do their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat your employees equally.

    Current Employee - Management  in  Philadelphia, PA
    Current Employee - Management in Philadelphia, PA

    I have been working at Temple University Health System full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The only PRO is the health benefits and the education benefit. The education benefit is not always a benefit if your director or department does not approve of you taking a required class, that is only available during the day, and something you need to complete your education

    Cons

    Do not expect to move up in this place. Discrimination is an open/closed situation and is hidden very well. This place is beyond networking with who you know. There are so many cliques, no senior management support, and they do not provide any serious training or education toward your career growth. Like I said, "A JOKE"!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop discriminating (PERIOD)!

    I have been working at Temple University Health System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Helping a underserved community where it is difficult to find qualified dedicated healthcare personnel.

    Cons

    Salaried employees work long hours. Hours could be minimized if more time was spent on value added work and less time was spent on value-less meetings. They talk Lean, but always know what that means.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to HR and their advice on retaining good employees. Listen to HR and allow employees to have a life outside of work. These employees want to stay employed there, but because they value family they must make a hard decision and most of the time they end up leaving.

    Temple Health is a great company

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Temple University Health System part-time

    Pros

    I worked on a research project for one of the doctors in the health system and it was a great time. Coworkers were nice and friendly.

    Cons

    I really can't think of many cons. The cafeteria I used was part of the hospital so I had to eat besides patient families and doctors, but it wasn't that bad. The food was sort of bland too, but there are worse things in the world.
