    Pros

    Providers are passionate about their work, excellent security, lots of learning opportunities (teaching hospital), constantly updating facilities

    Cons

    High no-show rate, surrounding environment feels unsafe, high levels of administration make getting started difficult (setting up a schedule, orientation)

    Advice to Management

    Something needs to be done about the high no show rate. It's taking up time and resources and patients are not being held accountable. It's a big big problem

  9. Good environment, not so great pay

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Boston Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I was with a small research team without patient contact, so my experience may be different from most employees. I was working with, for the most part, a friendly, talented, hard-working, interesting, diverse team. The benefits were good, which partly made up for the low salary. Besides the usual types of benefits, there were a few little perks, discounted Charlie cards, movie-passes, and health clubs, a farmer's market, a few free classes, such as yoga and meditation (although I think neither still exists, however) etc.

    Cons

    The salary was low, even for research. At the time I left, salaries were frozen and they were continuing to cut back on perks. Some of the people were easier to work with than others, although that can happen anywhere. The management, although not too bad for a large organization, occasionally put up bureaucratic hurdles to doing what needed to be done.

  11. If you like public health, BMC is a great place to work

    I have been working at Boston Medical Center

    Pros

    I feel very confident about the competency of my colleagues. They are a talented team of providers who are supportive and easily approachable. The directors also do a good job at advocating for their staff. If you like public health, BMC is a great place to work.

    Cons

    The on-boarding and mentoring process for new hires is sub-par. The EMR system is also cumbersome but they are transitioning to EPIC in the spring. The support staff are unionized which can make it difficult to get rid of some of the less qualified staff.
