    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.

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers, schedule flexibility, health insurance perks by seeing in-network providers.

    Cons

    The elimination of some employees and very slow re-hire of staff causes excess stress to employees and delayed patient care. Employees are not compensated for increased workload.

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

    Pros

    Magnet certification, up to date on latest research/nursing policies & procedures.

    Cons

    I don't think nurses are paid nearly enough. I can't speak for other departments as far as salary but nurses are the backbone of the entire institution and I don't feel appreciated as a nurse at jefferson. I think the new president is spending way too much money on trying to monopolize Jefferson and buying up every hospital in the area rather than focusing on it's employees. Happy employees lead to happy patients. It's a simple concept. Also I think the health insurance is lousy and I pay for the highest/most premium package.

    Advice to Management

    Increase wages for nurses. Jefferson receives very acutely ill patients and the nurses are the ones who carry that burden. The unit I work on probably has the highest nurse turnover in the hospital. I am considering leaving myself. If I were paid more, I would likely consider staying.
