    Faculty are genuinely nice and collegial.

    Cons

    Administration in the past two years have undermined the wonderful work environment but deception. self-serving agendas, and refusing to acknowledge the stresses that our rapid growth has produced. Admin is being driven by lust for profit, regardless of what happens to the people.

    Faculty Perspectives on MGH Institute of Health Professions

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Professor in Boston, MA
    Current Employee - Professor in Boston, MA

    I have been working at MGH Institute of Health Professions

    Pros

    Strong collegial support
    Robust commitment to, and value placed on, teaching
    Meritocracy
    Openness to new ideas & solutions
    Vibrant and growing
    High standards and expectations for achievement
    Commitment to technology-savvy education
    Extraordinarily strong physical therapy and speech-language pathology programs given that the MGH Institute of Health Professions does not yet support a PhD program.

    Cons

    Small endowment results in over-dependence on tuition, larger class sizes, more work for instructors

    Small endowment also results in small number of scholarships to draw under-represented minorites, which are greatly needed in the health professions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase size of endowment to allow for more scholarships to attract historically under-represented minorities
    Increase faculty salaries so that they reflect our national and international status

    MGH Institute of Health Professions -- Low Pay, but Otherwise Great Place to Work and Teach.

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Associate Professor in Boston, MA
    Current Employee - Associate Professor in Boston, MA

    I have been working at MGH Institute of Health Professions

    Pros

    The environment is stimulating intellectually
    Across the board there is appreciation for our teaching and for our role in mentoring students.
    The relationship with Mass General Hospital allows for research and clinical contacts.
    The Institute employs and makes available advanced uses of teaching technologies (simulations, distance learning platform, et cetera).
    The social environment is supportive and upbeat.
    The benefits package is strong.

    Cons

    The pay is low -- I have worked there 16 years, brought in the largest federal grant that has flowed through the Institute, and my pay, after deductions for taxes and benefits is $55K.
    Historically management has not received 360 degree evaluations, just top-down from the President, but the new president has listened to the faculty and has announced that bottom-up evaluations will be incorporated moving forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay for faculty who are highly productive.
