    My research was based at MIT, rather that at Children's Hospital. I was more familiar with people at MIT then

    Research Assistant (Current Employee) Cambridge, MA

    ProsGreat people to work, friendly environment. Awesome research opportunities

    ConsNo opportunities for advancement, and over time is not paid

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to have more opportunities for research assistants who want to stay and pursue longer career in research. Not that much learning opportunities either

    Incredible learning environment

    Mental Health Intern (Current Employee) Boston, MA

There are also lectures and presentations available to employees to attend, which gives an amazing insight into the current field of practice.

    Excellent research environment but low compensation

    Research Fellow (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    Pros1) You get to work with some of the most talented scientists in the country
    2) Being affiliated with Harvard Medical School allows for good research exposure (i.e., ability to work on high impact projects, ability to ascertain funding and materials, and access to career fairs from employers only looking to hire from the HMS community)
    3) Good opportunities available to transition to alternative careers. E.g., access to consulting and scientific writing clubs.

    Cons1) Salary should be reflective of the fact that we are living in Boston and being affiliated with Harvard.
    2) Hypercompetitve research environment (this could be a good or bad thing depending on your viewpoint).
    3) Colleagues within the same institution may steal your projects/ideas .... keep a TIGHT lip.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink about how much your research fellows contribute to your success. Treat us better. Reward us accordingly and set an example for other top-notch academic institutions.

    Great company to work for as nursing staff, but the inpatient staffing needs improvement.

    Clinical Assistant II (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsExcellent place to co-op at as a nursing student, or to grow your skills as a Registered Nurse.

    ConsIt seems like there's always nursing and nursing assistant staffing issues for the inpatient units. Sister units will horde resources at times.
