    I have been working at Massachusetts General Hospital full-time

    Pros

    I suppose like any research job, it depends on your lab and mentor. I have a wonderful PI and have learned so much from them about imaging analysis

    Cons

    My lab is small, so it can feel sort of isolating at times this doesn't affect me though

    Pros

    Good location. Tons of culture.

    Cons

    I would never go there to get a cancer screening. Majority of histology department don't even have a college degree.

    Advice to Management

    Not good for being considered the top hospital. Nothing but politics. Its all about who you know And being favored.

    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 work life balance. A relaxed work environment. A lot of smart people. A lot of interesting projects. A lot of meaningful projects.

    Cons

    A lot of meaningless projects. Not much upward mobility unless you plan to get an MD or PhD. The pay is much less than in a typical job in the tech industry. The barrier to having a positive systemic impact is very high. The goal is to publish, not make a difference.

    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.
