    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!

    Pros

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

    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.
