    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

    I have been working at Partners HealthCare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for Partners HealthCare (and before that, Newton-Wellesley Hospital- one if its affiliates) for over 30 years. It is a great, innovative employer, offering excellent career growth and a flexible, work-life balance environment. The organization has a strong commitment to research, its patients and the communities that it serves.

    Cons

    The organization, like and health care employer is facing unprecendented financial challenges due to health care reform, but understands the mission to provide affordable health care and will strike a good balance for employees as well as those for which it provides excellent health care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great company; continue to see career advancement potential in employees and retain and grow your workforce from within; while offering external candidates opportunity to also join a great company.

    I have been working at Partners HealthCare as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The vision of the people who have built this organization is very futuristic. The design is to make health care cost stabilize and give the public a reliable top-notch organization for their health care. In addition the new possibilities for health care advancement and research are being explored across many of the hospitals. The company reaches for new and better way of doing anything in health care that saves lives and money.

    Cons

    The processes are sometimes arduous internally and it takes an extended period of time to accomplish some things in policy, procedures and system designs.

    Current Employee - Information Systems Analyst in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Partners HealthCare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    In my section--because this is a hospital network. Was that every day was dynamic and different it's a large organization with many many people to interact with. The company cares about it's employees in that they give bonuses, allow lateral movement (promotion from within), offer good benefits, and just have perks and employee morale boosters. I really sometimes wish I wouldnt have left but I was not a fan of the wider city.

    Cons

    Sometimes there can be a little bit of politics or people from other departments (aka The Suits) throwing their weight around but I suppose this is inevitable of any multifaceted organization with so many elements. Direct hire seems tricky to obtain for my department. Generally it's good to know of somebody and an opening if you are working your way in from the bottom. My department was 24hr operation which cuts into life in the city. Parking likely sucks if you can not take public transportation to most of the dense hospitals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the way. At times you need to listen to the subordinate elements that are actually boots on ground.
