    I have been working at Boston Children's Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Children's is a wonderful company to work for. There is a great focus on employee development and overall collegiate atmosphere. The health benefits offered to employees are reasonably priced and a wide variety of services are also electable.

    Cons

    Annual reviews are frustrating because department heads have to end with a balanced team rating. The system is set up such that one cannot get an exceedingly excellent numerical review without another member of the team getting a bad review.

    Advice to Management

    It would be excellent to have an annual review system that allows for ratings to reflect the overall performance of the individual without having to take away from the performance rating of the team as a whole.

    Research fellowship at Boston Children's Hospital has the benefit of being able to connect to a large research community with top researchers from every field.

    Boston Children's Hospital is located in a very busy area with many different clinics which cause the long commute to be one of the few disadvantages of working here
