    Pros

    Reasonable benefits, small community feel and mission of the hospital

    Reactive leadership and pressure on staff, lack of clinical resources

    Top down approach and reactive leadership in creating vision should change. Excellence comes from staff being engaged and feeling as part of the institution...

    I worked at Boston Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free medical insurance and accessible locations.

    Cons

    Working at Boston Medical was not one of my favorite work experiences. I constantly felt micromanage and I address that issue with the union and never did anything to address the issue with management. There isn't a culture overall at the hospital and most clinics are always busy, which is great! but when you depend on management to complete your work is a disaster and you leave work stress and overworked. I constantly saw my coworkers stress levels very high and management did nothing about it. Also, we always were very short staff because people will quit within months leaving everyone with more extra work and constant covering. Management once told us that we needed to get out of minds that we were short staff and that we could do it all. Another thing that disappointed me was that management expected perfection and zero room for mistake, but never did properly train us because they never seemed to have time. If you were doing mistakes management will never let you know but instead will arrange meeting with the union to put pressure and give you warnings about losing your job. There are many more other things about BMC that were beyond disappointment. During my one year of employment at BMC I saw about seven people quit our clinic and I also had to quit because the stress was getting to much.

    Advice to Management

    Train people properly and develop a teamwork culture among your employees. Thank your employees for their hard work and help them succeed and grow. Don't micromanage and push people out to the point they burst in tears.
