Social, productive workplace. Workplace culture is very positive, and FCCC routinely gets employees and volunteers involved in various attempts. IT is somewhat stingy, difficult to get things approved and they don't cooperate with Temple well.
Full Time Travel RN (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 16, 2017
the patients and staff are amazing at fox case. I learned so much while I worked there. working with cancer patients is not for everyone but what you learn as a person and what you learn about yourself is far beyond any paycheck that you could dream of
Initiative...? Just do your job and do not think...
Director (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 7, 2017
Just do your job and do not ask why... Report after report without consequences. I enjoy teamwork with an individualistic touch, but initiative is not valued - I became an instrument. Not what I thought it would be.
Fox Chase Cancer Center over work their good staff to compensate for the unproductive, lazy, rude staffs.
Secretary (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 12, 2017
Fox Chase Cancer center needs to get rid of all the bad staffs before they lose all their good ones. I have been working at Fox Chase for 2 years and never worked with so many unproductive people in my life. There is no such thing as team work. I am one of the few staffs that is willing to put my all into my work and management doesn't even appreciate it. I'm the go to person for everything and everyone- from staff in my department to all over the hospital. I have to do my work and others without any addition compensation. How about a bonus once in a while? How about a higher rise than they give to their unproductive staffs? Instead, I get more work tossed my way just because management knows I'm capable. If you are lazy, unproductive, negative, and disrespectful? Fox Chase Cancer center is the right workplace for you. It is probably the only place that would tolerate since a thing.
Assistant Director, Accounts Receivable (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 24, 2017
The environment was extremely stressful and the Director had no clue what she was doing. There were others that worked here that would stop at nothing to stab you in the back. I would not recommend working here.
Director (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 20, 2017
You really feel as though you are doing good things when you work there. It is, however, very easy to get burnt out as there is very little opportunity and no focus on growing staff organically. Also, as a Temple organization it is impossible for the organization to invest in the kind of technology it needs to continue to be cutting edge.
Recruiter (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 4, 2017
Fox Chase Cancer Center is a fulfilling place to work at. The integration of healthcare, research, and education creates opportunities for networking within the community and allows for cross training and across these realms. There are excellent benefits offered through this employer, but the pay is lacking when compared to it's contemporaries and ability to move up within the system isn't all that great.
Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – 3333 Cottman Ave.Philadelphia PA – May 26, 2017
Small community, everyone know each other there, good team play, not much room for growth unless one went back to school, a slow pace environment. some what underdeveloped. under new management and development. Patients' care and hospitality is excellent, great customer service. I can see Fox Chase Cancer Center rising, already has a magnet status.
Years of service appreciation
Annual Thanks Giving dinner and Christmas to look forward to
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 6, 2017
The overall institution is well reconginized for nursing satisfation and emphasis on safe and competent patient care, the nursing floors and outpatient department seem to have a cohesive and well-balanced environment. However, the operating room lacks the "forces of magnetism." There is a lack of nursing leadership,extreme favortism and a highly stressful environment, with little advocacy for the nursing staff on the frontline.
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 5, 2017
I am a longtime employee and enjoy working at Fox Chase Cancer Center. I have learned so much and met so many nice people over the years. I feel a sense of accomplishment working at Fox Chase Cancer Center and what we do!
