    Pros

    A teaching hospital is a great place to learn and teach others. A very positive experience. The benefits are fantastic. Here you can make a difference in many children's lives. The surrounding town is fun and beautiful to be in. Children's will teach you necessary skills to move up for free.

    Cons

    It can be far to drive and traffic troublesome. If you are not use to strangers, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As human beings, we learn from our mistakes. When those mistakes are not corrected for every department, suspicion arises. When suitable replacements can not be found in a reasonable amount of time then those covering should not be held responsible. Team work is the key.

    I worked at Children's Hospital Boston

    Pros

    Boss (PI) extremely encouraging, skilled and motivated. Culture and atmosphere of the hospital and staff very supportive, warm and welcoming. Felt like a community. Longwood Medical Area is also a great place to work and be involved with on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Would have liked to been paid more, but that is an across the board complaint for any institution. Training modules were somewhat annoying, but super minor complaint (kind of fishing for things to say here)

    Pros

    The whole environment is so friendly. The benefit is good. You have opportunity to learn from your great colleagues having various background.

    Cons

    The competition make you have to work hard, which is good in one hand but you will feel tired sometime as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no commend on his leadership. The Children's Hospital Boston ranks first in six out of 10 specialties in nation according to the 2011-12 edition of Best Children's Hospitals by U.S.News & World Report. This fact itself means something.

    Pros

    Every employee across the board seem to be satisfied working in Children's Hospital than in any other hospital.
    Management makes an effort to recognize the value of its employees.
    The proximity with other well known hospitals and research facilities allows for an enriching environment to peform research.

    Cons

    No good parking for employees, however, there are plenty of choices for public transportation.

    Wish cafeteria was open late night.
