Registered Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 18, 2018
can be a great place to work when working with those who have the same work ethic. Cell phones taken over in the work place. Everyone carries there phone which make them lacking in there work. Not in all departments I am glad to say
Pediatric Intensive Care Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 14, 2018
Great co-workers. Some of the smartest and nicest people you'll find. Management is very money driven, to the point that it's frustrating and limits patient care. Great resources available. I learned a lot and am forever grateful. I just wish they treated us a little better and made improvements based on what we asked for.

We strive to make certain every part of a childs experience is memorable. Great doctors and nurses who go the extra mile. I've meet some families that have made a difference in my life. I have more patience.
Nurse (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 26, 2018
The families and the kids are why we stay despite the pay being so low. You have to fight for every dollar there but its hard knowing hup next door makes 10.00 dollars more an hour. Huge turnover with new grads every few years. Also management heavy with lots of meetings about meetings and emails about everything. We do the best we can but things have changed. We used to be number one for a reason. Some of those values have been lost in the focus on expansion. Be prepared for chop not only to underpay you but to also ask for you to donate money back from your salary in automatic deductions.
vacation time earned
too many chiefs, not enough money, horrible parking, gray boring nursing uniforms
The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is amazing.
Clinical Nurse II, Progressive Care Unit (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 24, 2018
Working at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia was an amazing experience for a few reasons.
CHOP is mission driven and CHOPs mission is multifaceted; CHOP was the first place I worked for that really incorporated involving families in their mission to be the safest hospital as well as the most advanced in the evidenced based practices and interventions implemented.
CHOP really focused on learning- patient and family education as well as employee education. The opportunity to learn was endless.
Blood Bank Technologist (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 23, 2018
I was there for an internship. the technologists were wonderful and loved teaching and their job. They treated me as an equal. I learned so much from them and I have the same work ethic that each and every technologist has. I would highly recommend working for Thomas Jefferson Hospital
OT (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 22, 2018
Your experience all depends on the department and management. My manager was degrading in front of patients and other staff members. Unnecessary stress was created and I had to work after hours every work day to perform job duties. No creativity or room for difference of thoughts was permitted.
Senior Research Associate (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 15, 2018
Research environment is fickle and investigators are routinely demeaning and over demanding. I tried for over a year to get a new position after working there as an exemplary employee and was passed over for many external candidates who were less qualified.
Lead Medical Technologist (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 12, 2018
This was a great place to build my resume however the environment of the employees was very catty. Management didn’t like to involve itself in the bullying and high school nature of the long term staff. Also there was not a large work life balance if you are a parent.
Awesome work experience and learning opportunities however left me quite unhappy in balancing home and the nuances at work.
