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

    Pros

    Assessable accessible to all public transportation, some of the staff are really great people to work with. Some of the management are really difficult and hard to get along with.

    Cons

    The work environment is kind of thick. Not all the staff is happy to work there however they need a job so they work there. Some of the management want you to go out of above and beyond without paying you for all your duties they talk down to you sometimes you have to be able to have thick skin

    Advice to Management

    You have to be other people before you can be over the people
