    I worked at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital

    Pros

    Some people actually care. Doctors are saving grace! People who care aren't nurtured.

    Cons

    Benefits are poor. Deductible are high. Lots of brown noses that will walk over their peers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to be Penn.... You're NOT!

    I have been working at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits are awesome, independence in your position, talented and knowledgeable professionals providing top notch care

    Cons

    Disorganized and inefficient systems - for example, the orientation I had to my specific position was pretty much non-existent. I figured it all out by myself through questions asked. Plus, the answers I got to my questions were different from each person I asked. Everyone is doing there own thing even when it comes to something that is concrete such as billing - poor multidisciplinary teamwork, billing people are incompetent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go through each department and thoroughly review how their systems are working in order to more efficiently utilize resources and provide optimal care.

    It was a great career opportunity at one time, but no more.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA

    I worked at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Almost everyone tried to be professional and show respect, but they had to mimic their immediate superior. The ones that were good, were very good, but the others; terrible.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership. So much money, effort and time was sent trying to make any decision (or a viable CYA's) that by the time a decision was made, the opportunity had passed and the decision was more detrimental than having done nothing at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop real relationships with subordinates. Take off the ties and pearls and work along side the troops once and a while. You would be surprised what you can learn. Your job title section on this survey stinks.
