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

    Pros

    Great place to work - challenged but rewarding culture; good benefits and pay; role allows for a great work life balance; potential merger could lead to awesome career growth. There are several long term employees here that show the great longevity the hospital can provide. Highly recommend!

    Cons

    Parking/commuting can expensive in the area; however this is subsidized by the hospital to help alleviate these costs. Some areas of the hospital need improvement from a facilities standpoint; however this has been an area of focus and improve mrs have been made.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all staff - no matter what level to learn how to improve processes.

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

    Pros

    I have honestly no pleasant memories.

    Cons

    There are almost no benefits for postdocs. It's as though they don't exist. Interestingly, they are listed as "essential employees" when it comes to a snow storm etc, so technically they need to come in to work. Terrible bureaucracy.
