I worked at Children's Hospital Boston full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Cutting edge research and educational environment with world class faculty members and leaders in her/his field; An opportunity to make the most out of it.; good life/work balance.

Cons

Too competitive to survive. Not all the lab head is world class. Need to be careful when choosing your potential mentor. Check, first, if funded federally etc. (e.g. by NIH).

    I have been working at Children's Hospital Boston full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good hospital for children. Other than that, horrible place to work.

    Cons

    Mid-level department managers are uneducated, bullying, and lazy. One week vacation only even though earned time is over the limit! Was denied vacation 2 consecutive years because manager never trained a backup for my job. After 2 years, asked for 2 weeks and again was denied, put on probation because complaint was issued and finally given one week. Lousy place to work unless you are a doctor or nurse. Will be leaving in 3 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smarten up and hire people who care about their staff.
