Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals, Inc. experience report

  • 28.May 2019
  • Employee

It used to be a great place to work. They have made it less personable. I feel it is all about money now.

1.94

Company Culture

I like the people I work with. I just don't think my manager has any clue about how hard as work.

Support from management

I frequently as out educator questions, rarely hear back answers.

Teamwork

I don't see that they care about my interactions.

Freedom to work independently

I am not sure if is trust it is just the field. But an educator checks out documentation so maybe no trust.

Internal Communication

I rarely hear communication about what is happening. It is usually my h later. Very poor feedback to start unless you don't do something.

Gender Equality

Nursing is primarily a female population.

Overall compensation for your work

They just took away my 20% shift differential. So not no competitive.

Office / Work Environment

Either too hot or cold. The lighting in supply listed is awful. The rolling computers frequently break. IT is not available to fix them regularly.

Environmental Friendliness

There is one re cycle can for the whole department, but it is the ONLY trash can do we are u able to recycle.

Work-Life Balance

I can never seem to get time off.

Handicapped Accessibility

For patients yes, staff no.

Workplace Safety

A nurse was recently stabbed. No not safe. But it has gotten better since the stabbing. Not proactive.

Challenging Work

It has become very challenging working under the budget constraints. Also the patients are older, sicker or younger drug addicts. These are very difficult populations to work with

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would allow people to indentured earned time off. I personally know several people who are not accruing time off because they have maxed out as I have. I am working but cannot get time off because we don't have the staff for people to get off.

What I like about the company

I have to say the people I have worked with for the last 15 plus years have made this job doable! We care for each other. I have lost my parents as have many of the others I work with. We support each other through lost children, divorces, surgeries, and so much more. While I feel not heard from my manager up the people I work with are great.

What I dislike about the company

The way they continue to take perks away. I just don't think they care. We used to have nurses week now we have hospital week.
