Best Places to Work: 2015 (#28)
I worked at Massachusetts General Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)
This review is from the perspective of a Radiologic Technologist:
People from all over the world go to MGH for a reason and its name truly speaks for itself. One has a lot of pride being a part of Mass general. As someone in the allied health field there is a clear difference from working in a community hospital and at a top-tier academic and research institution. MGH is the benchmark. If you are starting your career at MGH, the name alone will simply turn heads and perk ears.
The mid / end portion of one's career may show a different perspective. It is very flashy, cool and fun to work in Boston; not so much to commute and get into Boston. If you live in the city it is perfect. Living elsewhere can be a hassle. Additionally, some people eventually want to coast and have a low stress job. If you are looking for low stress and "auto pilot mode", I would advise to look elsewhere.
Advice to Management
Although difficult, try to emphasize that there can be a future beyond the technologist for everyone and not just select people.
I applied online. I interviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital.
tell me about yourself? tell me about customer service? how is your team work ?They asked me if I knew anyone who worked for the company. I told them I did. They asked me if I knew the rates for home health visits. The manager then quoted me incorrect lower rates. I actually did know what they were paying before my interview. I lost respect for the company after that. The rates per visit were lower than I would have accepted...AND THEY TRIED TO OFFER ME A LOWER RATE THAN THEY PREVIOUSLY PAID NURSES!!
