    Pros

    You will be surrounded by amazingly smart people. There are always great talks (sometimes with free lunch!) all throughout the hospital, so if you're interested in learning more about a medical specialty or science area, I am sure there is at least one talk going on in the hospital a month where you would be welcomed to attend (even if you're not an MD, or medical care provider).

    Cons

    Although some benefits are great, some could be better.

    I worked at Massachusetts General Hospital

    Pros

    I spend five years working at The General. I found the place engaging and stimulating. I was given a broad scope of responsibility and felt as they I really added value to the enterprise. It was a great experience.

    Cons

    None that come to mind. Excellent benefits, positive work life balance. I was not a part of the medical staff and that had some limitations, but I knew that going in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Decent benefits - 20 days paid vacation plus 9 holidays. Not bad medical insurance. There is a room to grow professionally

    Office culture depends on where you work and what kind of people are you dealing with - can be totally different experience. Compensation is decent.
