    I have been working at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital full-time

    Pros

    good to get "your foot in the door"

    Cons

    Racist staff, would not recommend if you are not white nor black; there was a non-black/non-white nurse with a heavy accent and everybody made fun of her... there are black nurses with heavy accent but other nurses don't pick on them. The nurses only pick on the non-white, non-black minorities. Some nurses also lash out on externs for no reason, but only to non-white, non-black minority externs. The nurses also complain about things that externs aren't allowed to do (i.e. one nurse complained about externs not drawing blood, when we are not allowed to draw blood). Personally, I have never felt this discriminated at a workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Make your staff take some racism seminar, please. They really need it.

    I have been working at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital full-time

    Pros

    The health benefits are good.

    Cons

    Management is always disorganized and doesn't take their employees opinions seriously. we are often short staffed and expected to do the work of multiple people. If you show proficiency in getting your work done you are expected to do the work of lazy coworkers. Management rewards the lazy and punishes the hard working. The atmosphere is fend for yourself with coworkers willing to push you under the bus to make themselves look better. If you show any dissatisfaction the response is "you are replaceable" which doesn't inspire loyalty.

    Advice to Management

    Be more welcoming to fresh ideas and inspire loyalty by providing promotions and better pay. Get rid of the less productive employees and find better hiring practices when interviewing potential new employees. A better standard of employee equals happy patients which equals higher revenue.
