Former Employee - Client Services Analyst in Boston, MA
Former Employee - Client Services Analyst in Boston, MA

I worked at Boston Medical Center full-time (less than an year)

Pros

-Free health insurance if you choose BMC Preferred Plan
-Paid Weekly
-Lots of vacation time

Vacation time was great, so amazing that when I left this place, I didn't use any of it and got a nice vacation check to my next employer.

Cons

-Horrible Work/Life Balance
-Disconnect between employees and managers in ITS
-Average for Pay
-ITS follows by BU and Doctors guidelines
-No Shared Responsibility in ITS

I left due to limited growth opportunities, I was unhappy within the dept because of lack of communication and proved myself via my education, work ethic, communication skills. 3 of the same jobs I applied for, a contractor got each over me, a full time permanent employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate with the people that the people below you manage, you will be surprised.

    great debt - no leadership

    I worked at Boston Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful hard working medical staff
    Generally respected employer
    Plenty of possibilities for growth (at least on paper)
    Academic feel for some BMC positions
    There will be a SubWay (sandwiches) soon!

    Cons

    Major financial debts may be too much for BMC to handle

    Major (long time) senior executives have departed

    Far too many "managers"

    Very little Attending (physician) executive leadership and ineffective outside MDs as Vice Presidents

    Confusion persists about basic day to day operations - "Surges" result that exhaust staff

    Horrible IT management and systems

    Very entrenched Union mentality (especially SEIU) in HR's operations

    BMC conflicts with Boston University too common - need to work together

    Physical Plant Infrastructure is in poor shape due to excessive square footage of real estate

    Turnover high lately and moral not very high overall compared to other local medical centers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take drastic action now

    Shutdown services that other local hospitals can handle. Rebuild when profits allow
    IE: outsource the money loosing pharmacy before it takes down BMC and separate the BMCHP so it can make money and get more patients to BMC (but not surges)

    Have BU or other professional organization take over IT as soon as possible

    City Hospital is dead and NOTHING will bring it back - BU will not help BMC with its debt load - it will just wait and buy the land at auction.

    Fix that debt... fast

    Impersonal, uninspiring atmosphere for non-clinicians

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Boston Medical Center full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities for clinicians...to see a vast array of patients

    Cons

    Feels very impersonal, institutional and somehow anti-intellectual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too early to say much.
