    I have been working at Fox Chase Cancer Center part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at Fox Chase has been a pleasure, the environment is welcoming, I really enjoy helping the people. Its close to where I live so I don't have to worry abut transportation. Overall its a great experience.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the hours I work are at night and I am not able to be with my children. Other then the hours everything else is fine.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is for them to be more open minded and understand everyone has a different method of learning and understanding. There are different people from different cultures that work there and some need more time to adapt more then others. Being a leader means working with everyone and making sure they are comfortable in their workplace.
