Certified Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Elkins Park, PA – February 5, 2018
Always have something to do. Neverending job. Lunches are never on time, not stable hours, have to get up early, and sometimes go home very late, because of the schedule, patients are rude, even if you are trying to be nice and stay calm and polite with them.
Ambulatory Care Clinical APPE Pharmacy Intern (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 11, 2018
Working with the underserved of the greater Philadelphia area was rewarding to say the least. As a teaching hospital the residents (house-staff) are exposed to urban medicine and take or rather assumer a lot of responsibility and it is wonderful working with them and teaching them
Events & Stewardship Intern (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – March 19, 2018
I interned at the Temple Health System for two semesters and loved it. Everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful. It's a real team. Even when the actual work wasn't the most fun, it was great because I knew how much the work I was doing would be helping other people. From money raised for scholarships to teaching the surrounding community about healthcare, it was really rewarding.
Sr Application Coordinator (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – February 4, 2018
Managers like to gossip about past employees and their faults or how new ones could never replace the past employees. I felt I never was given a fair chance to prove myself. No training or mentoring, you're on your own to keep up with their idea of how things work. Manager had no idea how to implement new people at the office, still doesn't.
Transplant Coordinator (Former Employee) – TUH – December 20, 2017
Worked in transplant, loved my job, co-workers, physicians, great work, good team. Extremely poor management in transplant. No communication, no feedback, no engagement with staff, no appreciation of hard work, good outcomes. When they do get involved, micro-managers in punitive environment. Toxic! Unbelievably high turnover in transplant. Most nurses there an average of two years. People with experience leave due to poor management. No one there to educate or train new staff. Revolving door. Despite notification of concerns to HR, no involvement or improvement. Administrator does not acknowledge your existence. No staff meetings, no formal communication. You find things out on the fly. Very frustrating to work there! Discouraging and sad. So much potential there and not tapped in to! Managers not supportive of internal education. Managers state that people leave because "they don't like change". Trust me....we begged for change!!
Radiographer (Former Employee) – 3401 N Broad St. – October 11, 2017
I was an agency pool technologist covering Interventional Radiology and Diagnostic Radiology. i enjoyed the time I worked there. I was not need anymore when Children's Temple Hospital closed. I would consider working here again.
Secretary to Director (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 12, 2017
Days were pretty much the same. Some time fun, sometimes hectic but tolerable. Learned a lot from faculty who I had the opportunity to work with. Personally I didn't find to much that was hard to do. I like the job I had.
Hr/Admins are a nightmare, benefits/vacation take many months to kick in
Research Technician (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 12, 2017
The pay is decent and the research/equipment is cutting edge but the administrative side of the job is a nightmare. Benefits take multiple months to kick in, you may have very little vacation time your first year, and parking is extremely expensive. Bad neighborhood, feel unsafe walking from the parking garage to work.
HR is widely complained about as are many of the admins. I feel like the HR/admins are doing the absolute minimum amount of work and act belligerent when you come to them because they know they won't get fired.
The atmosphere is overall unfriendly and competitive, I see little to no collaboration.
There are far better places to work.
Cutting edge research, new equipment, updated facilities
Terrible HR/admins, benefits take a long time to kick in, competitive/unfriendly atmosphere, bad neighborhood
Gme program administrator (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 28, 2017
Really hostile environment Everyone tried to steer clear of management They lack soft skills Managers talk about you to other admins No Presence of HR No real training with the expectation that thou know the work. Really hate it Horrible Manage ment
Network Analyst, Systems and Technology (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 16, 2017
As the health system grew, so to did Temple University Health System's reputation. The business culture supported the overarching needs of the patients and mission to become known as a center of excellence in the region.
Patient Access Representative (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 11, 2017
I work in the Emergency Department Patient Access Rep. I verify patient information. date of birth get patients Insurance cards. Verify there doctors. Check Insurances with Passport or Navinet. Also help the nurses if they need anything.
They do Ice Cream day, Free Hoagies
breaks are not bad. But Insurances are very expensive.
Manager (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 28, 2017
Senor management is clueless. After 25 years of employment I could not in good conscience continue to work there. The only focus for senor management is to destroy the current PASNAP union and oust it. Treatment of employees is unprofessional and childish to say the least. Also, the neighborhood is like a war zone. Do not stay past dark and venture outside.
Bad management, many unprofessional employess and low pay.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – March 6, 2017
I worked with an excellent team of doctors and gained a lot of valuable experience. I left to return to school to become a licensed practical nurse.The doctors i worked with were very nice and patient.
Nurse (Former Employee) – Main Hospital – January 2, 2017
When a director that you look up to says, "The only way to get promoted is if people like you". Not that you're doing a great job, not that you work hard, volunteer to help others. It's all about popularity. Ask them to see the Employee engagement serves, or the new Cultural engagement surveys. The detachment from senior management and the working bees, is so great, unless that changes it will never be a great place to work, just a good place to work. The health benefits are some of the best, but only because of the Union, oh yes and the fact that they have a Union is an indication that you need one.
Productive, fun place with kitchen, bedrooms, and lounge.
EMT-B (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – December 1, 2016
Fantastic facility. Management goes above and beyond to assist even the most tiny details in everyone's life, and they are completely competent at their jobs, and exceeding all expectations. Great facility tools, such as a kitchen and supplies, an extra medications room, state-of-the-art trucks, and even bedrooms for people to rest in. They make everyone feel like family.
