I have been working at Massachusetts General Hospital as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

+Smart, helpful co-workers
+Great physical environment
+Great brand-name in healthcare arena

Cons

-Things take a lot of time (ordering lab supplies, getting on payroll, etc.)
-Lots of administrative annoyance for the lawyers and government

Advice to Management

Stop implementing inefficient bureaucratic nonsense. It's not a good thing that your profit margins are a lot lower than Cleveland Clinic and peer hospitals, US News rankings notwithstanding.
