    I have been working at Partners HealthCare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work life balance. The company is very flexible to suit employees' schedules. Options to work from home when we need to. The best health benefits I could have asked for. Nice environment and people. The opportunities to transfer somewhere else within the organization are endless if you are qualified for the positions.

    Cons

    Not a lot of potential for upward movement where I am currently. The new boss in my department does not like to listen to anyone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am not familiar with the CEO.

    I have been working at Partners HealthCare full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1) The people you work with are always willing to help if you need it. This is not a company that frowns upon someone who is willing to learn

    2) Hours are usually 40 hours a week and is does not deviate from that

    3) There is a good mix of people. There are plenty of young people and more seasoned individuals in the latter part of their careers.

    Cons

    1) Pay is not great and promotions are based on tenure not achievement.

    2) Management is not particularly helpful in everyday work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more screening on who can become a manger. It seems as though managers are not experts in their specific roles. Also there needs to be a merit system in place. Often times there are high expectations placed on individuals but they're underpaid and will not receive any accolades or monetary gain for going the extra mile.

    I have been working at Partners HealthCare

    Pros

    great benefits, convenient location, people are for the most part easy to work with. Prestige of working in a large notable health care system

    Cons

    There is little opportunity for advancement and there is no privacy when you want to make a move to another job.
    Salary is low as compared with the surrounding market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Micromanagement is prevalent, the workload is lopsided and the corporate culture is about 10 years behind the rest of the country in strategic management.

  6. Great Work/Life Balance BUT Compensation is lacking

    Current Employee - Project Management in Boston, MA
    Current Employee - Project Management in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Partners HealthCare

    Pros

    As I mentioned in the title, there is a great work/life balance-which makes up for sub-par pay. Benefits here are excellent. There is paternity leave as well (up to three months). If you work in the corporate office you can work from home.

    Cons

    There isn't a standard path to getting promotions. You have to leave one department and then go to another in order to be promoted. Lack of training courses for business (i.e. Visio and Access). Compensation has a lot left to be desired. Standard 2% "merit" raise is essentially an inflationary raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your "worker bees" for their dedication and commitment in carrying out Partners mission.

    Pros

    Partners has great people and very team oriented. Great benefits.

    Cons

    All in who you know for advancement. Not the best person for the job. Managers who have no staff and others who can have forty something be realistic. Upper management who have been in the job for years feel entitled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at the staff doing the work and the loyal employees. Not just the staff that you like . Favoritism is relentless .

    Pros

    A large organization that encourages employee growth and personal development.

    Cons

    Size of the organization often makes simple tasks difficult to accomplish. Tuition reimbursement is not competitive with other organizations in the market so if you are considering continuing education do not expect generous reimbursement. Average annual 2% merit increase is below the annual increase in cost of living.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    consider re-evaluating tuition reimbursement and yearly merit increase limits.

    Pros

    Benefits are top notch
    Installing Epic Health Systems
    Work/Life Balance is very good, but depends on your manager

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for growth or innovation on the IS side
    Heading into Operational Mode when Epic install is complete, therefore current roles will change and there is potential for downsizing in the future
