    Excellent community dedicated to health of patients

    Research Intern (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsIncredible opportunity to work with physicians, researcher, and scholars at the tops of their fields on new ideas and innovative treatments. Some of the best care in the world.

    ConsBecause it is such a leader in care and research, you must be on your toes. Be ready to accept demanding challenges, but they are so rewarding.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe hospital does a good job of seeming like a family rather than a bureaucracy, but that feel of an institution still creeps in at points.

    great at times, frustrating at times

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsExcellent care, always striving to be the best and improve health care and access to health care for all children. Their heart is definitely in the right place.

    Consthe push to be the best sometimes interferes with day to day workings of the hospital. at time i feel like those making major decisions don't have a grasp on how it will effect us "worker bees". also feel as though pay is less than other major Boston hospitals with the excuse of "it's a privlege to work at BCH".

    Managers who do not manage

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWorld Class hospital for pediatrics.

    ConsLong probationary period leaves one feeling like an outsider and does not help with team building.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees are expensive to replace. Managers need to invest in their employees, not simply rehire.

    ConsAdministrative management is bordering on imcompetent. Pay is low compared to hospitals in the area. Not much opportunity for advancement.
