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

    Pros

    The work they do in pediatric medicine and research is amazing

    Cons

    Department is overwhelmed with technology and too many silos that isolate and prohibit effective communication.

    I have been working at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to learn and gain experience. Great place to learn quality nursing care and patient safety. Front lines of medicine so a lot of rare cases can be seen and treated that may not be seen in other hospitals.

    Cons

    The pay is just not enough. Even after a pay raise for the entire nursing staff the bump in pay was miniscule.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to pay the nurse equally or more to nurses in the area because the amount of work that CHOP nurses do is immense and important and they are passionate!

    Pros

    Pay, and benefits are good. As well as work from home capabilities.

    Cons

    Lots of work to be done and different silo's that exist preventing some things from being done without going through multiple otherwise unnecessary levels.

    Advice to Management

    Break down silo's and allow for more cross organizational work to be done.

    Pros

    One of the best work environment, supportive and intelligent co-workers

    Cons

    Hire a lot of new nurses and therefore will go through many preceptors. Having up to 5 or more is not unusual. I had more than 10 in an 8 week period.

    Pros

    If you are interested in being a clinician, MD or PhD I think CHOP is a great place to work and you will grow here. Offers competitive benefits and friendly work environment.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities to learn skills outside of your day-day tasks.

    If you do not plan to get a graduate degree (MD/PhD) limited opportunities.

    Commute is a bit annoying due to lack of public transit directly to office.

  8. "Chop job"

    I worked at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great patient population - large variety of diagnosis. Decent benefits. Excellent continuing education opportunities.

    Cons

    No incentive or perks for long term employees - appear to rather hire new nurses than retain experienced nurses. Very stressful time for parents/family/patients - often their frustration and fear are expressed as anger towards staff. Poor tuition reimbursement.

    Advice to Management

    Improve treatment of experienced nurses!!!

    The organization is too big.
