I have been working at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The sense of community is great. I really appreciate their efforts to hire from within and provide free job training and citizenship counseling to their employees. Everyone seems cheerful and people say hello in the hallways. These things are what keep me wanting to work at BIDMC.

Cons

Research seems to provide very little career advancement opportunities, and it seems like we are underpaid compared to neighboring institutions. Benefits could be improved. I like that sick time, vacation, and holidays are all rolled into one pot of earned time, but I know that this can be tough for some people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a good look at what's fair compensation for the area.

    I have been working at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great clinicians and staff who care deeply about the patients they serve and who work extremely hard despite cutbacks on staffing, supplies and equipment

    Cons

    (New) Senior team disengaged from front line issues; CEO externally focused, delegated all decisions to COO who is culturally insensitive to the needs of staff. Seems there is a lot of senior management strife which is new and has appeared in the last year or so

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention and really listen vs asking staff and managers but implementing your predetermined solution anyway. Staff appreciate the words of appreciation but would appreciate more action toward improving the working environment. Please give us much needed resources to allow us to do our jobs the way they should be done. We are very stressed. Thank you.
