Application Analyst (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, Pa – August 11, 2016
The pay was at or below industry standards and the benefits are not great. The organization is becoming top heavy through the merging process. If it weren't for the people at the organization, it would not be a worthwhile place of employment.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 30, 2016
The department of medical laboratory sciences and biotechnology at Thomas Jefferson University provided me with a great location for my rotations where I gained valuable laboratory experience. I ended up with my own project, which ended with a poster presentation at faculty research day, that I was able to add to my resume. They also provided me with a work study as a teaching assistant and a four-week-long summer job following my graduation.
Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 18, 2016
I had 24 hour accountability with a small staff and no opportunity to increase staff which was very difficult and I often worked as staff. I learned many different aspects of management. I had support from the top management on down. The hardest part of the job was no flexibility of staff. The most enjoyable part was seeing patients before, during and after surgery.
Field Security Supervisor (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 8, 2016
Working for this company is very interesting everyday. Like any work place its going have its ups and downs. By me a worker and worked my way up the ladder I know when a job you should work and do not let the job work you.
Research Technician (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 5, 2016
Over the years It was difficult to watch the commitment to scientific research decline. I was an amazing experience to be surrounded so many people dedicated to finding the answer to treat debilitating diseases with decreasing support and funding from the institution.
The best part of the job was knowing that everyone had the same goal and when long days in the lab became trying you could look around and see you weren't alone and that they, too, were committed to achieving that goal.
Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 3, 2016
Jefferson Hospital is a secure place to work as well as advance with the right connections. Some of the policies and procedures can seem stringent if your new to healthcare like I was. Overall I feel that it was a good place to be employed.
Patient Transporter (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 28, 2016
after nine years at this establishment with it helping me grow as a person, and being the place i meet my wife, its time i say goodbye. The pay is no longer seeming competitive. However the most crucial reason for this desired change is the change in its culture.
Certified Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 26, 2016
poor micro management, great staff but doesn't feel appreciated by management! NO lunch break till work is done which is usually 6 or 7 hours into 8 hour shift . NO 15 minute breaks. administrators would just walk by you and speak.
Referral Specialist Coordinator (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 19, 2016

Registered Nurse (Medical Surgical - Pool) (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 17, 2016
As a pool nurse, you do not belong to a specific unit. You go to wherever there is a staffing need for that day and shift. You have to be a proficient and efficient nurse to be able to work at any unit at any given time when required. You must be skilled and diverse in patient management in a variety of complications. This is what makes this job exciting and rewarding. You go to work not knowing what nursing unit and patient population you will be caring for. You also do not know the nursing staff you will be working with. There is a lot of mystery before the start of your shift. This uncertainty is the hardest part of the job; not know who you will be working with and where you will be working. However, the most enjoyable part of the job is being able to work through the hospital. It provides a great learning experience.
Flexibility in scheduling, able to work throughout the hospital, opportunity to learn
Instructional Design Specialist (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 16, 2016
Working with students and staff of TJU was demanding because they expect excellent service with 0 errors. Complaints and problems have to be solved quickly and satisfactorily. It is hard to initiate change in the institution, change and new ways of doing things has to start bottom up with one or two initial clients (professors) willing to spend the time and effort to try new things. Change is also risky as student complaints are taken seriously. The hardest part of the job is to bring about change. The most enjoyable part of the job is when change takes place with good results and student feedback.I learned how to work with perfectionists, people who excel in what they do, who never make mistakes and who expect the same from others working for or with them.
Learn a lot about Health Science education and the medical profession in general.
Organizational structure is complex. The curriculum map is too complex.
Registered Nurse/Registered Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 6, 2016
Patients are very sick and require much care. However, most of the nurses pitch in and help each other. The nurse manager in the unit ensures that everyone is treated with respect and in a fair manner.
Salary satisfactory. Paid time off is generous.
Rarely given a lunch break. Difficult to get time off
