    Pros

    Working with the best and brightest of all disciplines. Educational support. Cutting edge medicine.

    Cons

    Staffing going downhill. Pay less than other Boston facilities for those in the middle payscale experience range.

    Advice to Management

    Look into cost of living adjustment. The 2% raises barely cover the jacked up health ins rates.
