    I worked at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very bright co-workers, hard working and dedicated staff, truly care for visitors, patients, and each other. A place of caring and empathy. Everyone working hard together to provide patients with the best care in the most comfortable environment. Good location, easy access to public transportation.

    Cons

    Can be slow to change and adopt new processes. Feels like there was always some fad passing through...new way to analyze work processes and change them. Those fads didn't stick but many employees started to become wary of them and disengage before a project even began.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to engage low-level employees from all departments (clinical and non-clinical).

    The culture of the hospital is one of the best in Philadelphia. The nurses really do care about their patients and it seems more than just a paycheck.

    Nurse/Doctor relationship is good.

    They do not hire many support staff for RN. Majority of the time RNs have a patient assignment up to 7 patients without a CNA/Tech assisting them.
