    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Penn Medicine full-time

    Pros

    Great for entry-level position to gain a wide variety of experience.

    Cons

    Management doesn't utilize or even recognize experienced technologists according to their strengths. Favorites are chosen, groomed, and promoted regardless of their lack of experience or poor work ethic. NO incentive or acknowledgement for good work performance, only criticism and oppressive micromanagement. Unhealthy work environment and very low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to inspire employees to grow and contribute by using their strengths and experience. Use positive reinforcement methods instead of only negative criticisms. Managing people means identifying problem areas and coaching employees to overcome them, not just writing them up for everything. Open your minds and value suggestions from more experienced employees, especially if their experience comes from outside the system. Learn how to value all types of diversity including personality differences and age differences.
