    I have been working at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing and inspiring staff. Definitely the best and brightest in the country and I am honored to work with them. You will see amazing thing, but also heartbreaking things; be prepared! My co workers are like my second family!

    Cons

    There is not as much interdisciplinary communication as I am used to. Not sure if medical people value nursing staff. Docs are not very independent and seem to need a lot of support from nursing staff to function; they don't seem to be able to "do" anything for themselves an it appears they want to be waited on by nursing staff and they do not really act thankful for the assistance. Pay for nursing is poor...much more money is being offered in Wilmington De (the "other" children's hospital) and they have free parking!

    Advice to Management

    Please increase nursing salaries across the board, you are not keeping up with your competition!

    I have been working at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Diverse patient population, difference you make in patient lives, wealth of knowledge available on array of diagnosis

    Cons

    Many advocate that employees further education but make it impossible to advance in the organization. One's title is the driving force to get things done. Some employees are very disrespectful to one another. In certain departments money is the ultimate focus.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others like you would want to be treated. Do not assign task that have nothing to do with a employees position. Stand firm in each policy don't bend or make exceptions for certain patients as it is not fair. Be kind to everyone no matter what your title is

    I worked at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My experience working at CHOP was nothing less than positive. Everyone was professional, friendly, and welcoming, and my boss was unwaveringly supportive and encouraging. Every person and every department works together to make CHOP what it is: the best children's hospital in the country. I feel proud and lucky to have been able to work there.

    Cons

    I did not have any negative experience working at CHOP.

    Pros

    There is potential for growth, job security, and great benefits. It's a fast growing organization with multiple jobs available to apply

    Cons

    Slow on-boarding process and not flexible about alternative work arrangements, low availability of part time positions, management is rather conservative

    Advice to Management

    Please look outside of the box and try to capture internal talent

    I worked at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are solid; obviously the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia reputation that is helpful to have if you ever leave; most facilities are state-of-the-art

    Cons

    Red tape bureaucracy of a large company; one of hundreds of employees without an investment in personal wellbeing all of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Meet with staff individually and truly listen to their concerns, even if you cannot address all of them. We want to feel fully heard.

    Pros

    Access to some of the best researchers in the country. Ability to work on complex projects with minimal work experience if you work hard and prove to be competent.

    Cons

    There are not many cons to working at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Sometimes, due to the fact that it is a large institution, there are delays in response from certain departments, but that is to be expected at a large hospital.

    Advice to Management

    I have had a wonderful experience so far at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia- not much advice to give!


  11. "Excellent institution to work for."

    Pros

    The world's greatest doctors, nurses, sraff and researchers make up the best pediatric health network in the Philadelphia area. CHOP is everywhere. They've managed to be their own health network without being taken over by any other health system.

    Cons

    Having a reputation for being the best pediatric health network in the Philadelphia area, you can't get too comfortable thinking that reputation alone will continue without hard work.
