Medical Assistant/Counselor (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAJanuary 24, 2015
Pros: services available to employees
Cons: stability
I learned a lot in my 6 years of employment. They do take care of their employees. I have made many friends at Penn. The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to help so many people.

I love working for Penn, at each location my coworkers felt like family. The only down side is that Management does not allow for professional or personal growth.

A Significant Disappointment
Services Assistant (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PADecember 8, 2014
Pros: a generous benefits package
I have heard for years how great a place UPenn is to work. Unfortunately, my experience with them did not live up to the hype of all those who find this organization to be so grand. My experience with working for the Annenberg School for Communication found a work environment of people who were elitist, privileged, and unconcerned for anyone but their own images. I quickly learned that improvements on existing systems weren't welcomed from comments of "we aren't interested in doing anything differently", "this is how we always do things", and "you should only do what you're told to do."

The pinnacle of my experience came in the form of a conversation with the Director of Special Events who insisted in blaming others for her miscommunicated needs for her planned events. I endured a significant portion of the blame for not knowing the history of events prior to my on-boarding and in the end endured personal insults, including a comment stating in email: "I hope eventually your learning curve becomes a straight line."

There are many areas to work in Penn, and I'm certain this in not indicative of every work-group. Unfortunately, it was my experience, and likely my last desired encounter with Penn.

Enjoy working as a lecturer
Lecturer (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PADecember 3, 2014
I have provided content, written lectures, and created slides for a new course titled “Art, Design + Digital Culture.” I have bi-monthly meetings with intelligent and interesting faculty members to continually develop, manage, and gauge the success of the course. I enjoy working in education because I feel like it keeps me current on how culture is adapting to and being influenced by print and digital media in our image inundated world. Working with a variety of students not only keeps me sharp conceptually but it's gratifying to help students manage their expectations and to know that everyone feels heard as we move from project to project.

An enjoyable palce to work
Medical Receptionist (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PANovember 19, 2014
Pros: nothing substantial comes to mind
Cons: no full time position for me right now
Working for this facility has truly been an eye opener for me. Being able to interact with the students and cater to their medical needs is very enjoyable for me. At times, us as employees are molding them in certain ways. Learning does not only take place in a classroom and at SHS, we are proof of that! Most students have had their parents making scheduling appointments, making sure that they get to the correct location, holding on to their insurance cards, etc. Here, at SHS, we educate them on certain processes to enable them to get active in their own care. Explain to them the process of submitting a claim to an insurance company for possible reimbursement. I truly enjoy working here.
