    I have been working at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was at Beth Israel as an intern and now as an employee. I've experienced a wonderfully collaborative culture, a commitment to employee growth and education, and a place where it feels safe to ask questions and receive support. It's very supportive, challenging, and interesting! Great people.

    Cons

    As with any hospital, collaboration can vary floor to floor. Some areas of the hospital feel better to me than others. Also, I'd like to see a greater commitment to having POC in upper level positions and in the social work department.

    Advice to Management

    Please work very hard to hire POC, especially to upper-level positions

    I have been working at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Patient-focused hospital, with generally helpful and friendly staff. I have enough time to connect with the patient and don't feel rushed to complete the exam - that means that the patient gets a better scan and I get to leave at the end of the day not burnt out but feeling that my job is meaningful.
    The benefits are good.

    Cons

    Often times it feels that the 'bosses' (on various levels of management) don't have much interest in hearing from the staff and looking at their suggestions. There's an effort to improve on the basis of the patients' feedback - rightly so - but people who come to work every day have other kind of insights that should be addressed as well.
    Professional development is virtually non-existent.
    Specific to the department, it can be difficult to take time off.

    Advice to Management

    See the first point of Cons.

    I have been working at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Teamwork. I have always been supported in this environment. From my coworkers on the floor to my managers I’ve been given the upmost support and moving towards my career goals and meeting them.

    Cons

    Childcare benefits for employees is nearly nonexistent. I do not have children myself but as an advocate to change the future of the workplace benefits. I would hope to see a change in the future that would benefit each employee who works in a position of long hours from 7 to 7 in meeting the demands for childcare for these long hours.

    Pros

    Upper management are very personable. They will smile and speak. Though it's a large organization, you do not just feel like a number here. They also have many multicultural celebrations as well as Employee appreciation events throughout the year.

    Cons

    The price of parking is absolutely ridiculous and it continues to rise each fiscal year. I understand the medical center is in a congested location but I honestly think they could help us out some with the parking rates! If you're in an administrative/clerical position, be prepared to not get paid your worth. I have 20 years of experience and I'm being paid what someone fresh out of college would get paid.

    Advice to Management

    The fact that many of your employees (myself included) have to take on a second job to make ends meet should tell you something. Being nice only gets you so far. We need money to live as well. And the 2% raise each year is laughable.
