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

    Pros

    Amazing staff, a jobsite that gives a sense of purpose. Physicians, nursing, NPs/PAs, and technicians are some of the finest in the field.

    Cons

    Administration issues, though not significant enough to deter productivity. Seems difficult to move up the ladder unless you know people.

    Advice to Management

    Consider hiring more physician assistants for non-surgical specialties. Otherwise, keep up the good work.
