    I have been working at Penn Medicine full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The hospital of the University of Pennsylvania truly values nurses, as evidenced by a nurse being hired as CEO of the hospital, whom was our Chief Nursing Executive prior to being promoted. Educational opportunities, work with amazing colleagues, and it is part of an Ivy League institution with the best nursing school in the country.

    Cons

    Nothing specifically about this institution, but rather nursing in general so use your imagination. However, I will say that through the shared governance structure and nursing administration and clinical nurse specialists opportunities to turn cons into pros is possible

    Advice to Management

    Continue to cultivate the pride and passion for Penn Nursing, and reflect that through listening and backing it up, as you have and hope you continue to do.

    I worked at Penn Medicine full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very good benefits, SOME nice coworkers in department. Nice nurses and residents and other staff. Tuition assistance would’ve been nice to use.

    Cons

    My department had some extremely rude coworkers. Co workers should not be allowed to treat each other this way! Extremely high workloads to the point of being unsafe and then told I had poor time management. Was told this in the beginning even when I was still on orientation and learning. Was criticized from day one and never given a chance to adjust to new hospital. I was at my previous employer for 10 years and have never had this problem before in my career!

    Advice to Management

    Sensitivity training to rude employees, lower workloads/ better staffing, to allow more SAFER quality time with patients. Give your new employees a chance to learn before beating them down and threatening termination!
