    I have been working at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great staff to work with and lots of opportunities to learn and get certifications.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive. Not union. Parking is expensive. Have to rotate shifts into you are senior staff.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t ask nurses what you can do to make their work environment better and increase nursing satisfaction and then never implement a single thing. Offer us pay comparable to Penn and Temple, we earned it.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Some nice perks such as tuition assistance

    Cons

    With Jefferson's numerous hospital acquisitions, the enterprise runs like a clunky disjointed mess. The morale is toxic as department redundancy is multiplied across the ever-growing conglomerate and threat of layoffs is looming. Unfortunately, most the competent leadership and talent has jumped ship. Office politics are king; common sense and business acumen are lacking in the management that remains.
