Good company to work for, although dealing with the doctors is sometimes rough.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

ProsI worked in the Service Response Center, which is located in the maintenance building. Away from patients, quiet office. Busy office with a good vibe, good co-workers and non- micromanaging supervisors.

ConsHaving to deal with angry callers who think their issues are the most important thing and should come first.

Has become an uncomfortable place to work

Management (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

I have been working at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center full-time

ProsGreat clinicians who are dedicated to their patients

ConsSenior management changes has resulted in an aloof, exclusive inner circle with poor communication. Most staff are anxious and morale has tanked

Advice to Senior ManagementEntire senior management team needs to be aligned and work together. Appears to be split into factions with some SVPs not aware or included so if you report to those, you are out of luck. COO makes backhanded remarks to senior leaders publicly which is counter to our historical culture of respect.

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

BIDMC is a great work environment and is full of loyal veteran employees

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

I have been working at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center full-time for more than a year

ProsBIDMC has a strong sense of community. The new COO definitely cares about what employees think and wants to implement the reasonable changes that are being requested. Also, the hospital offers great insurance and decent benefits.

Consthe hierarchal structure is a bit intimidating. sometimes you feel like you can't say hello to senior management. also, because it is a nonprofit, the salaries are a bit low. i think it would boost employee morale if salaries were raised by a certain percentage

Advice to Senior Management-higher salaries would be greatly appreciate
-hierarchy needs to be a bit disbanned to let employees feel like they can say hi to anyone in the halls

Don't forget Research

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

I have been working at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center full-time for more than a year

ProsAccess to experienced people who are willing to share their time.

ConsThe benefits, location, facilities and location (yes, I meant to repeat that)

Advice to Senior ManagementI work in the research arm of this hospital. My experience has been that the research arm is treated with mild neglect. Because this is a teaching hospital, shouldn't research be a focus at this hospital?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
