    Pros

    Working with amazing Doctors and Nurses
    Great exposure to the healthcare field
    Great part time college job

    Cons

    Sometimes people don't respect the position and nurses don't understand you're just the messenger of patients calling in.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have much to say on this but maybe more training opportunities for operations associates. Lots of training for everyone else.

    Pros

    Great connections and resources. Benefits package is good and there is a work-play balance. Good task distribution among employees, huge focus on teamwork.

    Cons

    Very little room for advancement and middle management is a little incompetent at times. Definitely low pay for the area and for amount of workload.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay more attention to your research assistants, I know we are low-level employees but we do most of the grunt work and the necessary work...we need incentives to stay given that this job is low-pay

    Pros

    Everyone who works here is highly professional and skilled; all clinical staff are incredibly motivated and dedicated to their patients as well as to their research efforts. Many "in house" educational opportunities.

    Cons

    MGH doesn't have generous benefits-- namely, few holidays and essentially zero tuition assistance for employees and their families (even within the MGH Institute of Health Professionals), which is a problem if you'd like to enhance your professional efforts with higher education.

    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.
