    Pros

    I really like the work (research) environment. CHOP is really a good place to work for. Benefits are wonderful!

    They expect a lot out of you and give low salaries. The benefits make up for it though.

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

    Pros

    Pride in work and a good stepping stone to someplace else.

    Cons

    No sick leave; if you have to take "unapproved" leave you quickly fall into downward spiral which will affect your raise and promotion. managements cares little for your needs. Many people are ready to retire and care little about making changes. Not a good place to work if you have kids or a young family. Terrible commute in, parking lots are getting more and more limited.

    I have been working at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Autonomy, high acuity, travel perks

    Cons

    Horrible work life balance. Forced to work 8 hour shifts without our permission. Used to be 3/ 12 hour shifts. Now because everyone is quitting we have to work 4 shifts a week. Toxic and destructive coworkers. New leadership that is dictatorship and disruptive to unit. Mandatory overtime. Disrespect for your personal time. Late dispatches for low acuity patients means you're out late every night. Write ups galore. Very high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen to your staff. Do not fix burnout by forcing us to work more days. Stop treating us like children. We are grown professionals.

    Pros

    Not bad benefits. Your experience will really depend where you are working. Definitely does put some reseources into research.

    Cons

    Cannot take classes at Penn as they are no longer affiliated. Hard to get promoted if you do not change your qualifications (earn a degree, etc. )
