    I have been working at University of Pennsylvania Health System full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great exposure to hospital environment if you’re a student of nursing or pharmacy. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Rarely ever get trained on anything but med deliveries, cliques all around from “vet” techs, also known as techs who have been around a long time. If someone who has been there for a while decides they don’t like you and tells management that you’re not a good employee, they don’t question it. They only do peer evaluations not manager or pharmacist evaluations so don’t make any enemies.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized because everything is a mess. Take time to train employees who want to learn instead of overworking others because no one else is trained. Start doing manager reviews based on cameras or seeing workers with your own eyes instead of going off of peer evaluations.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at University of Pennsylvania Health System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You can develop close relationships with your patients and communities.

    Cons

    Scheduling is a mess. Training is a mess. Documentation is a mess. No accountability. Productivity measures are unreasonable. Poor communication all around. New processes implemented with little training and poor execution. Micromanagement is the norm; Directors want control over everything and it affects staff. Major diversity issues in leadership and unsupportive [though, fully aware] HR dept.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring former sorority girls who use "baby-talk" in a professional setting as a hedge. Recognize toxic narcissism in your leadership and act against it. Stop perpetuating workplace bullying by doing nothing when employees speak up.
