    Pros

    Faculty did a great job in the selection process of future nurses coming from diverse academic backgrounds that they can foresee will excel in their academic and in their clinical rotations in the best hospitals in Boston.

    Cons

    Faculties exposes us to lots of online discussion on health policy, nursing research, case analysis but wish there were more clinical practical training hours so that we can put immediate value in the our first nursing job position. In this competitive world, hospitals shun upon new grads because of the time involve in training so wish we had more clinical training.

    Pros

    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.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    Increase pay for faculty who are highly productive.
