    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Penn State Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -large academic medical center (you learn a lot!) -nice location (safe)

    Cons

    -if you are a person of color you will not get hired on more "prestigious" floors. The children's hospital nurses are all rich white sorority girls, and unless you fit this criteria you will not be hired...no diversity at all no matter what they tell you through their slogans (besides the doctors and med students which the managers cannot control). This also depends on the floor you're on. I've seen floors fully staffed with blacks, asians, whites (everyone basically and usually med-surg floors) and then you go to the children's hospital and it's the opposite. Sad that this is a reality for people of color here... -turnover!! when I was a nurse extern my preceptor was the nurse there the longest (she was a new nurse with 2 years of experience) and even she ended up leaving shortly... -the pay is absolute garbage. I took my first RN position somewhere else bc i was getting paid 5 dollars more there than what i would have if i stayed in hershey...
