    It was rewarding to be serving patients in need at the front desk, but some coworkers saw it as just another 9-5

    I worked at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Therapists and physicians in the ambulatory clinics are very pleasant to work with. Adequate training for use of scheduling and registration software. Beautiful new building since April 2013.

    Cons

    Some of my peers were inconsiderate and/or deliberately not helpful to patients, which was frustrating to see especially considering the patients have disabilities for which they are coming to Spaulding to get help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More cohesive team atmosphere, maybe via encouragement of more two-way communication

    I worked at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good mission driven organization that really cares about the patients.

    Cons

    Mentoring and management training could use some help as you work up through the ranks. Sometimes managers forget that helping their subordinates is part of their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help supervisors and managers focus not just on department bottom lines and patients but also personal and co-worker growth. Improve mentoring opportunities both inside and outside of the organization.

    I worked at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The facility has a great reputation

    Cons

    Constantly felt like I was being looked down upon by nurses and other staff members. Very disorganized. The head nurse of the facility was incredibly rude to me once because she apparently had no idea I was coming or who I was (it was my first night working there). I never really felt comfortable working there, which is why I didn't work very often.
    It's not the most exciting job by nature, but sometimes I felt like me and the patient were forgotten by the nurse (I realize they're busy, but you need to at least come in and talk to the patient, let them know when you'll be in to give them their morning meds, etc. Otherwise they often become much more agitated).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to treat sitters like their idiots. I have 2 degrees, and was working here to get patient care experience while going to school full time and working another job.

    The department is not included in special announcents from the current location or the new location. Feel left out.
