    I have been working at Children's Hospital Boston full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Culture and values
    Patient care
    Comfortable facilities

    Cons

    I can only speak about the department I worked for.
    Chaotic environment
    Lack of Leadership
    Lack of Management
    Lack of communication
    Management by fear
    Employees penalized after reporting incidents
    Low salaries
    No career opportunities
    Department is unable to quickly adapt to a changing environment
    Management does not accept suggestions to improve performance, resources, budget, and utilization, even if it only requires a simple procedural change.

    A week after announcing the hospital is going through serious budget cuts and laid offs, "Boston Children’s Hospital paid chief Dr. James Mandell a total pay package of about $2 million, including a $725,000 bonus. That marked a 10 percent increase in his total 2009 compensation of $1.8 million." From Boston Globe, Boston-area hospital bosses earn up to $3 million August 16, 2012, by Liz Kowalczyk

    I worked at Children's Hospital Boston full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good Mission. Good benefits. Location.

    Cons

    My nightmare of a boss was not held accountable for unprofessional behavior..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much back-biting and internal competition. People generally seem afraid to put their necks out.
