      You have to self-manage your experience

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Experience as a hospital technician Pharmacists are approachable

      Cons

      You are more like a less paid technician. You have to find your own true pharmacy preceptor to help substantiate the experience. if you find a pharmacy mentor, discuss your interest and you'll be able to get shadowing o\opertunities Intern management is nonexistent.

      My exp.: Patients are cared for & Jefferson is a healthcare questionable organization

      May 2, 2021 - Telehealth Coordinator 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Many opportunities to use your healthcare experience. - New Jersey portion of the health system is the best thing about Jefferson Health.

      Cons

      - Too much work is performed because 1 Provider says so. It does not matter if the work has no long-term vision and cripples other departments. - When you see something that other health systems would consider questionable and you bring it up then you will be told... ---- That has already been decided by others and we have to do what they say. ---- Do not talk to Doctors, or other Managers, about other organization's solutions to the issue you are having. ---- We do as the Doctors, Marketing, and the Legal Department tell us. - You will feel like Jefferson Health looks to circumvent every health care, health system, and corporate responsibility norm that you know. - Be aware of your own HR and Payroll rights. - If you have experience then you will go insane seeing things that other organizations would not do, or what other organizations had already discovered is bad for patients, and bad for employees, so they no longer do. - Old Aria portion of the health system is good for patients and continues to carry a justified grudge about the consolidation. - Center City bullies everyone to fall in line versus bringing all to the table for ongoing operational decisions. - Frequently make patient and health system mistakes because they do not reach out to the other health systems in the area who made the same mistakes in the past. - Organization had no Mass Casualty plan or processes which all health systems should have had after 09/11/2001. Instead, multiple manual processes were permitted and encouraged to be created in order to boost the success of projects, which then boost personal promotions and bonuses. And all of the manual processes crashed to the ground when Covid-19 hit the Philadephia area. Leadership, who knew there should be Mass Casualty plans, had none for their department.
