    I would really recommend

    Project Consultant (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsOne of the famous Harvard hospital affiliates, so very good for your resume and career. Very friendly environment, nice working environment, good payment

    ConsPhysicians are taking the upper hand in management, sensitivity among the physicians, they are very non flexible and need everything by their way

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more strict regarding the non flexibility of the physicians for the sack of the general interest

    Comprehensive medical center.

    Clinical Fellow (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsInteresting cases, collaborative working environment, good interdisciplinary interaction/communication

    ConsSenior staff seem disengaged with the day-to-day activities. A lot of scut work is put on the fellows/residents, but it's all part and parcel of working in a busy cancer center.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    great opportunity for research at your own pace

    Research Fellow/Research Fellow (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    Prosyour PI will always be available to speak and help you out. your coworkers are extremely knowledgable and will help you through most of the roadblocks that you may hit in research

    Conssome complications with getting access to specific parts of the building without hours of shuffling through people, low salary even for research

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevote more money to employees, keep the flexible hour schedule as it's very useful for motivation

    Bad Manager

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsThe hospital itself is renowned for a reason - the doctors are great!

    ConsThe manager in the department in which I worked was so quick to blame the employees for things beyond our control, and overall created a hostile work environment. Other departments are likely better, but several people left this department because of the management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not a great place for an engineer

    Research Assistant II - Software Engineer (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsInteresting research topics, stimulating environment, smart co-workers

    ConsIt is an academic institution, where a non-PhD engineer has almost no future

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open about their needs and why they hire people

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I have been associated with the Medical Center off and on for 20 years.

    Social Worker (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsHigh quality of professional staff.
    Pride in the good care given patients.
    Management in my professional department is excellent.

    ConsLack of leadership in the specific clinic in which I work.
    Poor communication among management staff in the clinic.
    Not as friendly and team oriented as I like.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease team work and improve communication. Improve appreciation of staff and acknowledgment of the value added by staff.

    Great environment for research

    Research Assistant III (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsThe research and clinical community collaborate pretty well. There are lots of perks; discounted red sox and movie tickets to name two. People seem very friendly generally.

    ConsAs an employee in research, one gets the impression that research support is not a primary concern. Some aspects of the research infrastructure can be troublesome to navigate (IT in particular).

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe recruitment process for research positions is really terrible. HR seems to have no understanding of the positions they're posting, and the PI seems to get very little input as to the wording of the postings.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
