    I have been working at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute full-time (more than a year)


    The other team members were great - young, fun environment, and the work was interesting. Lots of exposure to high power doctors, but little mobility in terms of job opportunities.


    The management was not there - there was a lot of gossip and lack of management from the upper tiers. However, overall, this didn't impede much on the work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who are competent in their managerial skills, make sure there is more accountability to management, focus less on small issues and on the big picture

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

    Interview Details

    I got the interview through my staffing agency and went in right away. I was interviewed by two people at the same time. They asked mostly simple questions about why I was interested in the job, my prior experience, and how I would respond to working directly with cancer patients.They talked to me just as much as I talked to them during the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me to describe a situation where I made an angry customer happy (something along the lines of that).   Answer Question
