    I have been working at Partners HealthCare full-time

    Pros

    The mission of the company, patient care, is not beaten into the staff's heads. Management and staff are all dedicated to supporting the mission, however minor or removed from patient care we may be. Healthcare benefits are excellent and cost-frienndly, and are not contingent on using the company's hospitals or providers.

    Cons

    IS management culture is all over the place. Some very focused, others appear to fly by the seat of their pants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reevaluate the prescription plan implemented in 2015. Effectively cutting out independent neighborhood pharmacies for all maintenance drugs was unwarranted. CVS Caremark is not at the top of its class as a provider.

    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.

    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 .

    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.
