    I worked at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Doctors, nurses and support staff are outstanding!!

    Cons

    Worked at Jefferson for 25 years and saw quite a few different Senior administrations come and go. Tom Lewis was the best President this hospital ever had. This new establishment is running this hospital like a corporation. I have never seen the moral level so low as I did when I resigned my position. They are too busy buying up all the real estate around the campus and not supporting the employees needs. I truly thought that I would retire from here but I could not stay any longer to see where this hospital is heading to. This used to be a true Jefferson family but now it seems to be about greed. Nurses are over worked and truly understaffed. I am not a disgruntled employee as I stated that i resigned from my position. All other Hospitals in the area pay much better than Jefferson and this is always the way its been the case.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be the next Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania by purchasing all the buildings you can and put more of your resources into your employees. Stop outsourcing to outside companies that have no clue how to run a hospital correctly!!. Stop choosing quantity over quality!!........

    I have been working at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always over-the-top busy. Most of the time there is too much to do but it is interesting work and a learning experience.

    Cons

    Management is a rude, exclusive club.
    NOT a positive work environment.
    NOT respectful of employees AT ALL.
    NO appreciation for extra efforts made trying to keep up with their ever changing whims.
    Too much effort is NEVER enough.
    The place is crawling with entitled, know-it-all interns (who they pay nothing).

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves.
    Walk a mile in someone else's shoes - and NOT your senior management colleague's latest Berlutis.
    Stop being so disrespectful and rude to people. You don't walk on water.

    I worked at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital as an intern (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Paid internship, great exposure to various nursing skills, formed good professional relationships with supervising nurses and techs, competent staff, good teamwork, transportation benefits, provided networking opportunities with nurses and nurse managers

    As a nurse extern, they helped develop my skills and confidence in clinical practice. Nurses were competent and I highly recommend the program to nursing students. Jefferson is transitioning to Epic and I think that this system is more superior than the one we had.

    Cons

    I do not really have any cons for this company. Perhaps, increasing the hourly rates for externs would be beneficial.

    Advice to Management

    I have no cons for this company. Perhaps, increasing the rates for externs would be beneficial.

    Pros

    I is not far from where I live in North Philadelphia, PA.
