    Pros

    Great hospital, we have the best doctors in the world. Hospital is always under construction constantly improving it. Awesome cafeteria.

    Cons

    Not treated with respect, long hours, micromanaged, under paid, expected to do more than what you are compensated for, no room for growth, no chance of getting raises.

    Advice to Management

    Either pay more or hire more people for the job. The department is understaffed. What happened to the holiday bonuses?

    I have been working at Boston Children's Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great work is done here. I now work behind the scenes but when I started my career with BCH I worked on an inpatient floor which was a very humbling experience. It helped me a lot when I had to deal with my own family crisis.

    Cons

    I work alone and in a very demanding position. Getting time off can sometimes be a struggle. Egos run high and doctors are not very friendly. The pay is average and very little room for advancement unless you want to move to a different department.

    Advice to Management

    None. My manager is very hands off- which I like. When I have a question , it gets answered.

    I have been working at Boston Children's Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great science
    amazing colleagues
    closely associated with Harvard in regards of research

    Cons

    Scientists here feel somewhat as second class employees since we're not part of the main focus of Boston Children's (providing medical care).
    Being a postdoc with second-class benefits amplifies that view.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make scientists regret joining you instead of Harvard Medical School departments.

    I worked at Boston Children's Hospital full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Tons to learn, multitasking learn how to communicate with your fellow coworkers and patients and upper management. Great experience especially for new nurses who just graduated.

    Cons

    Very very very busy and sometimes emotionally taxing, not much of a lunch break or bathroom break and sometimes work 1 to 2 hours after shift is over

    Advice to Management

    Hire more nurses new and experienced and staffing ratio should improve!

    I worked at Boston Children's Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Your experience completely depends on the department. Some have lots of opportunities for growth while others don't get past administrative work. Your coworkers make all the difference!

    Cons

    Salary is not even close to competitive. QI leadership is dysfunctional at best. No clear philosophy or mission. Way too much emphasis on creating measures that aren't useful. Lots of turn over and low morale in PPSQ.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together already.

    Advice to Management

    Walk a mile
