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

    Pros

    Great fellow employees and some good supervisors. Benefits are pretty good especially if you use Jefferson medical staff.

    Cons

    Union pay rate is low company to alot of other hospitals. Equipment is outdated

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead weight in public safety management and invest in security. You're a modern medical center and university. Look at places like Hershey Medical Center and other medical center's with a security and police staff. Start hiring police officers with actual police training and redesign the process for security officers to gain promotions. Allow officers to transfer to some of the hospitals near their homes

    Pros

    I've gotten to build a solid network of people with whom I enjoy working and can rely on.

    Management plays heavy favorites, and inconsistently micromanages, coming down harder on the workers and not as hard on those who don't work.

    Be present. They're missing the things they should be paying attention to and focusing on things that don't matter.
