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

    Pros

    CHOP has an amazing culture and invests in the people that work here.

    Cons

    Internal workings of some labs seem far more "clique-ish" than I would have imagined..... ever. Our lab has lost 4 people in the past 6 months- due to favoritism. Many techs are moving on because their career advancement was halted while others bloom.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid losing qualified employees to other labs by investing in more than one STAR person.
