Charlestown location is an unstable place to work

Associate II (Former Employee) Charlestown, MA

ProsGreat benefits vacations and really high starting salaries. Lots of perks like reduced insurance and cell phone plans and flexible work schedules.

ConsThis place operates on emotions and whether or not you are in the in crowd; Its worst than high school. There will be no career path or chance for advancement if they don't like you. The directors/managers are a tight knit group; they block you from moving to other departments by sharing their jaded opinions of staff with each other and basically blacklist you from other positions. This means if you are fed up with the way they treat you, your only recourse is the door. For this reason the turnover rate is high. I would not recommend anyone leave a stable position to work at UMMS. It is an extremely difficult place to navigate.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe Director’s have too much power and autonomy; they are a self governing community devoid of any consequences or repercussions for the actions they take against their staff. Together they pressure and intimidate the Executive Director and he does what they want. The powers that be in Worcester need to take a hard look at what goes on in Charlestown.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
