    I worked at Children's Hospital Boston part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The patients make you want to do the best job you possibly can for them. It is the most upbeat hospital I have ever worked at. The good managers there encourage you to do your best and better.

    Cons

    Despite having a stellar performance rating from the VP of Nursing, my manager laid me off from my position after being with the hospital and doing a terrific job with the program I was hired for. HR could do better at handling a lay off due to "department reorganization". They give you 5 minutes to pack your things before offering to escort you off the premises. Kind of harsh for an employee who has loved her job and has diligently done it for many years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If there are concerns with employees then supervisors should address any issues directly and not hide behind HR and have them do their "dirty work". Longstanding employees who have done excellent work for many years deserve much better treatment.

    Long hours, underpaid, average research experience.

    Pros

    Good tuition reimbursement benefit. It's a little bit more than you get at the BI, but significantly less than HMS.

    MBTA discount, standard at competing institutions.

    Cons

    As with most research positions, you are expected to stay over time, but not get paid for over time. The base salary is average, but non-competitive compared to industry or Harvard Medical School. The wages are disproportionate to the experience required for many positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the base salary of non-tenured research positions.
