    I worked at BioMed Realty full-time

    Pros

    Incredible benefits, which most other companies couldn't compete with, but the base salary was low for the amount of work. Overall, friendly people and casual environment.

    Cons

    Most departments didn't have much of a work/life balance and not all departments were the same as far as corporate culture. Management wouldn't discuss pay range for the position, which made it hard to know how far you could go within your current job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have transparency - make it clear of where you stand for your role and how to work your way up in the company. Use the semi-annual self review to listen to your employees to make constructive changes.

    I worked at BioMed Realty full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, casual business attire, good pay, lots of drinking parties if you like to drink

    Cons

    Accounts payable does not operate well. After working there for a year I found the employees in that department are disengaged in their work, unmotivated and spend the majority of their time on the instant messenger rather than working. There is no desire to do a "great job" in that department. The group is very "clicky" and focuses more on their social activities rather than work. There is no passion for their work in that group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the performance of your department. What are they working on? Seeing how they communicate with others is a reflection of their motivation and desire to do a good job. While I was there I saw unethical business behavior. Too much gossiping and not enough work gong on there. Management is not paying attention and these girls know it. They get away with poor conduct and treat coworkers poorly. Executives do not want to work with the AP department because they are so disengaged in their work down there. It is a mess in AP. Get them to love their jobs again, motivate them. Since when is doing your homework on the job instead of your work allowed? Is this the right behavior?
