    I have been working at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia full-time

    Pros

    Resource-rich children's hospital in an urban setting with access to experts in the field and an environment of medical advancement. Outpatient PTs have a good amount of autonomy. There is also ongoing growth in inpatient, outpatient, and satellite areas of practice.

    Cons

    Big ships make slow turns. While autonomy in practice is present and professional growth is encouraged, there seems to limited fertility for creative types. The staff is large which can be a pro to young professions, but more challenging to navigate for midlevels.

    Advice to Management

    Find more opportunities to feed creativity and help low/mid level practitioners connect with the hospital resources that support their passions.
