    I worked at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Consistently higher salaries than Penn. Lots of talented faculty. Many projects are quite cutting edge and could have an impact on children's health.

    Cons

    Highly fractured research informatics community - there were at least 8 groups doing the same thing as us with no sharing of code. Research is compromised by the hospital IT infrastructure. Managers are not given control over budgets. Turf wars are common - usually the most cutthroat player wins. Poor communication is endemic.

    Advice to Management

    Hospital and research computing has different needs - treat them differently. Replace directors when they leave or be prepared for a dogfight. Root out sociopaths.
