    Pros

    There are some really great clinicians at BCH who are doing exciting, innovative research.

    Cons

    The clinicians/Principal Investigators are often very busy, with little time for research.

    Pros

    It's all about the Children. Dedicated staff and rewarding work.

    Cons

    HR doesn't return calls. I recommended a friend for a job, they interviewed, and never heard anything. He called HR to inquire about the status of the job, and they never gave him the courtesy of a call back. I was embarrassed to work for a company that was so thoughtless. What does that say to people??

    Advice to Management

    Need to follow up with candidates.

    Pros

    Helping the Children. It's job until you find another one. Working with some of the staff and doctors.

    Cons

    It depends on the department. My was awful, micromanagement, the managers had no respect for the staff. VERY VERY high turnover. The pay was too low, not livable in the Boston and surrounding areas. I even saw some of the staff fired / not hired back if they were out on Medical leave even though they wanted to come back to work. Managers could bring in someone else at a cheaper pay rate. Some of the parents. Half the departments are "Foundations", which rents the Children's name.

    Advice to Management

    I rated the CEO poorly, because she allows her managers to treat staff with no respect.

    Pros

    I have loved working for Children's for the past year. Everyone is very kind and the job has been sufficiently rewarding.

    Cons

    Given it is a hospital, storm weather does not eliminate the need for your position!

    Pros

    Joint-appointement with Harvard Instructorship, salary starts from 5+ years NIH post-doc level but totally up to the lab you're working in.

    Cons

    By appointed as staff scientist, you lose parking-subsidy as fellows.

    Pros

    clean work environment. World reknowed. Lots of international patients. Lots of managers. Will hire new grads and train them. Good benefits package. Free CPR classes. Has self scheduling but bosses often change what you put in.

    Cons

    no transport so nurses have to bring their patients to all their tests. Peer review and eval. process is lengthy and repetitive. Units don't talk with each other so often times ideas don't travel that could be helpful. Nurses are so busy there is no time for lunch/diner break (maybe 10 min). Have to fight for when you want to take vacation even though they give you hours to have it. No rewards for seniority. Getting rid of 1946 Prouty Garden despite petitions of thousands of staff and families( there are pt's ashes there!).

    Advice to Management

    listen!!!!! Management has their own ideas about everything and never listens to front line care before they make a policy. They care more about their image then employees and patients. Hir nurses and rely less on travelers

    Pros

    It is great being in a hospital and getting advice from physicians about the future. You get first hand experience in the clinical research process which is helpful later in life.

    Cons

    This job can sometimes be depressing, as oftentimes you will be around sick children or hear that a child unfortunately passed away.
