    I have been working at New England Organ Bank full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are great and one of the many reasons I can't find a reason to leave. The people that you get to work with every day are incredibly smart, talented, and have a lot to offer to the organization's mission. They offer a competitive salary, the current CEO has been an incredible leader; I don't see that changing with the new CEO who should also offer fresh ideas and an exciting future.

    Cons

    The hours are demanding and the work/life balance is difficult to manage at times, but the benefit time can help balance this out. Metrics are used to measure performance and help work towards a goal, but they can be micromanaged and daunting. They offer the ability to submit ideas, but very few get any traction to get off the ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't use metrics as a primary tool for measuring success and performance. There are regular training sessions regarding communication, but little to do with clinical information that could be beneficial and exciting to the people that work in operations.

    I worked at New England Organ Bank full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    New England Organ Bank employs highly motivated, professional people and carries out a really important mission - literally saving lives across New England every day. My coworkers were some of the kindest, most dedicated, and most knowledgeable people I've ever worked with. NEOB offers a decent salary and an excellent benefits package, and the HR department there is accessible and helpful.

    Cons

    At times, they tend to emphasize quantity over quality. If you are an altruistic person, motivated to help others and make a difference in your community, this can be a great place to work, but constantly feeling torn between "meeting metrics for the sake of meeting metrics" and actually doing your job to the best of your ability can be frustrating. Maintaining work/life balance was tough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your people - they are amazing. More importantly, SHOW them that you value them.

    I have been working at New England Organ Bank

    Pros

    There is great flexability with scheduling at NEOB. Also, responding onsite to many different hospitals big and small, neat to see how different places run. There is a lot of independance in this job but there is a big support system in place if you ever need anything - even in the middle of the night. Coworkers are great to work with and offer support in many different ways. Great team effort!

    Cons

    Sometimes the amount of hours that you are on site
