I worked at Women & Infants Hospital

Pros

Comfortable work environment
Good benefits
Mostly pleasant co-workers who are easy to work with
Good amount of autonomy (depending on position)
Part of a larger organization, with ability to move around

Cons

Bureaucratic
Little to no career development
Some are more equal than others
Unforgiving HR dept.
Low pay relative to other industries
Career progress/raises/promotions based solely on a black and white job description developed by HR dept, often outdated or inaccurate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop written guidelines for navigating the bureaucracy, provide career development and goals for receiving promotions, allow advancement based on merit rather than letters after a person's name.

    I worked at Women & Infants Hospital full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Women and Infants is a very wonderful company, which I think is very committed to providing the best possible service to their patients and the scientific community. I really liked my coworkers there, everyone was very friendly, committed, and positive. The work was stimulating and I felt like I was contributing. Also, the benefits are outstanding, good insurance and a huge amount of paid time off right from the start!

    Cons

    I sometimes felt like there was a lot of pressure to go "above and beyond" the job description, and even what the patients wanted (calling on weekends and evenings to follow-up). Also the pay is manageable, but not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do wish their were less pressure, as described in the cons.
