    I worked at Penn Medicine full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for PENN Health System for over 10 years. I started in a file clerk role making $11 and through hard work was promoted twice over the 10 year period. I left making $20 an hour. Great benefits, great work environment, understanding of personal life, and they help pay for college tuition

    Cons

    They paid for a part of my college then couldn't get job in that field. I tried for 18 months applying for openings and never received as much as a phone call or email.

    I have been working at Penn Medicine full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. Great Benefits.
    2. Up to $8000 school reimbursement.
    3. Great salary! Better than other hospitals I've worked at.
    4. Excellent department management.
    5. Organized hierarchy.
    6. Great working environment.
    7. Cultural differences are highly respected.

    Cons

    The only con is that there is very little room for advancement. From my experience at Penn is a highly organized facility as such there's not room for advancement as everyone I've encounter likes working here. However, no one is looking to leave. As a medical assistant there are opportunities to move from clinical to administrative positions and back.
