    I worked at Temple University Health System full-time

    Pros

    Temple health system and hospital is a very good place to work, it’s a great teaching and learning facility, with very good benefits, and opportunities for career advancement.

    I honestly don’t have any downsides, I enjoyed the 12 years I worked there.

    Advice to Management

    They are doing a great job, keep up the good work.

    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.

    Pros

    Many of the hourly workers are truly nice people who go above and beyond

    Many of the senior managers shouldn't be working with the public much less a hospital

    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.

    Pros

    Working with the under served people of North Philadelphia

    Cons

    Constant financial struggles despite recent changes. The CEO is not transparent, egotistical and self-centered. Also ruthless- fired many people without reason

    Advice to Management

    I would steer people away- the hospital is in dire straights financially and Moody's again down graded their bond rating
