At Partners HealthCare, we know it takes a surprising range of talented professionals to advance our mission—from brilliant business people and tech experts to dedicated researcher administrators and systems analysts. We’re taking on health care’s toughest challenges by integrating patient information with electronic medical records systems, analyzing big data to streamline the delivery of care, reaching out to medically complex patients to better serve their needs, and managing grants that support critical research for specific conditions. Together, we’re connecting premier hospitals and health professionals to help serve their patients and communities with more accessible and higher quality care.
We’re focused on a people-first culture for our system's patients and our professional family. That’s why we provide our employees with more ways to achieve their potential. Partners HealthCare is committed to aligning our employees’ personal aspirations with projects that match their capabilities and creating a culture that empowers our managers to become trusted mentors. We support each member of our team to own their personal development—and we recognize success at every step.
At Partners HealthCare, we welcome diverse perspectives and innovative thinking. Our systems for leveraging data and digitizing patient records to advance patient care are just the start. We’re advancing the use of mobile technologies, too, like supporting patients with devices that allow them to share their vital signs with their doctors in real time, right from the comfort of home.

I have been working at Partners HealthCare full-time (More than 10 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
I first heard about Partners in 2000 from two directors who were taking a professional development course. During a converation, they raced about Partners Healthcare and expressed their expectation to spend their careers here. So far, 14 years later, one is still here. One great thing about Partners is that it's so big so there are many opportunities to move and try different roles. I know this can vary tremendously, but I've been able to work for some of the most competent managers who have given me freedom to be creative in my roles supporting training and taught me a lot about how to be more effective. I've also had access to leadership and have been impressed by their knowledge of employees, their decision-making, and their inspirational messages. The healthcare benefits and other are really good.
Because it is so large, there is little flexibility negotiating benefits, PTO, and salary. It is pretty market driven and fair, but I wish managers had more influence. My last promotion took a couple years to be approved based on how roles are structured.
Advice to Management
Though times are leaner now, the various tokens of appreciation that used to occur - annual Partners gifts, dinner with execs at the Pru, and holiday parties were a great way to stay connected and feel appreciated. I'll always remember John Glaser dancing in his socks to the IS band at the holiday party!
