    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.

    Pros

    An open and inviting community, with people ready to help you learn and develop your skill.

    Cons

    They won't listen to your suggestions regardless of merit, nor do they consider logic a valid reason for understanding a situation. Either you have the degree or you're incompetent

    Advice to Management

    None. There is no fixing a system that believes it self to be correct, if it is inherently destructive.

    Pros

    Busy med/surg floor,so learned a great deal. My co workers appreciated my work ethic,great team.

    Cons

    Pay. If you're not a nurse,you're definitely not valued by management. It's not fair wage for the work I do. Raises do not reflect real life. I work full time and still needed OT.

    Advice to Management

    Merit based bonuses for employees that work above and beyond. Make people want to stay,instead of looking for better paying opportunities.

    I worked at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Linearly - great employees and colleagues.

    Cons

    Management tolerates clinician bullying of admins. Double standard for clinicians and admins; some docs and nurses engage in inappropriate comments or failure to bill and are still there years later. Admins make errors and are dismissed immediately.

    Advice to Management

    I left on great terms and had no problems with my managers or colleagues. However, I do have eyes and was uncomfortable with some of the cruel words and behaviors exhibited by clinicians towards admins. H.R. needs to ramp up its role and should be empowered to deal not just with poor quality admin staff but remove doctors and nurses who are not team players. There are so many excellent people out there who could jump in and make the medical center more efficient and a better place to work. There is no need to preserve and protect hierarchical dinosaurs.

    Pros

    Great social work team and supportive management. Lots of opportunity for job movement internally

    Cons

    Emotionally draining and could use more staff to meet the urgent needs of all patients throughout the hospital. Hierarchy amongst medical staff continues to exist.
