    In center of Philadelphia, transportation is convenient.

    There is no scientist in Thomas Jefferson at all.

    Pros

    Great Benefits
     Good Work -Life balance
    Flexible working hours

    Cons

    No growth
    very low pay structure
    no encouragement for internal career transfers

    Advice to Management

    Please encourage deserving employees to apply within the organization and help them grow in their career.

    I have been working in TJU for 6 years now and have tried numerous times to switch to other departments and there has been NO help or encouragement from the management. HR department is useless. HR is made of bunch of concomitant people who love to get paid well,dress well,sit around and talk about their life. WAKE UP and make policies that benefit your employees.

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

    Pros

    Convenient location, great benefits, supportive leadership, and great teammates. Any opportunities to experiment with new technologies and innovate. Also great to see the fruits of my labor benefit patient care.

    Cons

    Pay increases are set. Although there is a great quality-of-life, the pay is not as competitive as other places. Certainly not bad but it could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Please bring back merit-based increases. There are many people that give all to the company and should be paid more in order to retain talent.

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

    Pros

    Friendly people are found in most departments, except some nurses. Research being performed is interesting to partake in. Very flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for career growth in research unless you switch between departments. Floor nurses are lazy and don't want to assist with research activities, even though it is their attending running the research and part of their job description. Nurses have a condescending attitude to anyone who is not a nurse.

    Advice to Management

    Increased organization, especially with electronic charting. Many of the orientation classes in general were a waste of time.
