    Smaller hospital with more interaction between departments, and more focused mission.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsClose proximity of various departments made meetings easy to plan and to attend. Staff is always friendly, and the location in downtown Boston is convenient.

    ConsSmaller hospital than MGH, so there are not as many resources (ie: not as much room to grow career-wise).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLots of good people to work with across the organization. The combined healthcare and teaching mission is excellent and provides great motivation. They offer a generous amount of time off. They also offer a pension and reasonable benefits.

    ConsA lot of politics, which is to be expected in an academic medical center. This gets especially difficult the higher up the leadership chain you are.

    Great place and people, but poor interdepartmental communication and management structure

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsThis hospital is able to recruit the best and brightest physicians and researchers, making it an inspiring place to work.

    ConsDepartments do not communicate, leading to a lot of wasted time, energy, and morale. Was also pretty concerned about the training of middle/senior management. It was pretty clear (from several examples during my time there) that promotions were generally a result of longevity and "playing politics" with the right people, rather than demonstrating excellence in leadership and/or managing a team.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo Upper Management/HR:

    Managers who consistently "micro-manage" will eventually smother the productivity, confidence, morale, and spirit of their staff...and this is bad for all of us.

    Working there as an RN for six years, zero advancement, crap pay

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    Prosnice employees, close knit departments, caring to new nurses

    ConsThe money is horrible, administration is top heavy, very political advancement only, HR has no grip on middle management (probably because they are all buddies), cheap cheap cheap company both for patients and new employees. NEEDS A UNION. Building huge per diem pools instead of creating benefited jobs,75% department turnover-what does that tell you?

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake better care of your 'lower' employees by hearing their concerns and protecting them from middle management. Please, spend some money on the place, certain floors are so run down they are a total disgrace and embarrassment!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Unfair Employment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCo-workers are great, friendly environment if you work in the right department

    ConsSalary is not what it should be. Politics run wild here, not a fair place to grow a career. Good luck getting a promotion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink in the minds of your employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A special place ... if you're lucky

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFriendly colleagues, many of whom have spent most of their career here. Great working atmosphere, if you have a good manager. Nurses really help each other out and are very dedicated. OR is really well organized. Outstanding cafeteria with delicious food.

    ConsCurrently restructuring, long term future uncertain. Top management says everything's okay, but there have been some layoffs. Main computer system not designed for this type of setting, so it can be frustrating to use. It feels like there is a disconnect between people who have worked here for many years and newer people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider combining with Mass General Hospital.
