    I worked at Temple University Health System full-time

    Pros

    Some amazingly talented and dedicated staff that truly care about the patients and the community they serve.

    Cons

    Poor workplace culture and a general lack of accountability, coupled with widespread laziness among many staff. The hardworking dedicated staff eventually get tired of this and move on to seek a better working environment.

    Pros

    Mission-driven organization-the work that you do every day has an impact on the lives of some of the most disadvantaged populations in the country. The people that you work with are driven and motivated to change the lives of the patients that the health system serves, and have generally be very friendly to work with.

    Cons

    There are none at this time.

    I have been working at Temple University Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly People. Management listens.

    Cons

    Salary is not that great. Technology is lagging. There is push back when trying to introduce new coding tools and ideas. Not flexible with work from home like other companies. No career path. Hardly and promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to work from home a couple of days a week. Other companies do this.

    I worked at Temple University Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to Park but they charge employees $12/day

    Cons

    Don't work here unless you are black and christian/catholic. Anyone else is looked down upon or given a hard time. Unfriendly Employees and Patients, Bad Handoff Communication. Doctors and Nurses not willing to work with each other. Unsafe to walk around at night. Have been told "You don't belong here" because Im not black by a staff member. Security is USELESS. No support from management. They are just looking for a bed and someone warm to care for the patient- very unsafe.

    Advice to Management

    Be welcoming to peoples races and religions. Support your staff more so they don't run the first chance they get.
