    Pros

    The culture and the people at BMC are what makes it so great. I never have felt so welcomed or at home as I did here. The staffing ratios are amazing. You get lots of interesting patient populations.

    Cons

    Honestly this is a great place to work and if Boston wasn’t so cold in the winter, I’d still be working here

    Pros

    BMC offers a supportive working environment that fosters individual growth. BMC has a diverse culture and a core set of values I can get behind.

    Cons

    A few employees who do the bare minimum, but you’ll find that at any hospital.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO really needs to take a look at PFS, RI and Finance........where do you get the people who are in charge, Interim Sr. Directors who know jack about RI, PFS and Finance. You allow consultants to stay for years and you lose all your good workers......sure am glad I am no longer employed by this place, a TOXIC environment!

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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits package is offered

    Cons

    As an experienced PA, felt marginalized due to several layers of interns/ residents/ fellows in our department. Did not have a role which allowed for me to perform the challenging, autonomous work I am accustomed to. This is likely the same at any teaching hospital, however, with rare exceptions.

    Advice to Management

    Due to tough working conditions/ patient populations, salaries should be a bit higher compared with other area hospitals. Allow PAs to work with more autonomy if qualified/ experienced.

    I have been working at Boston Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    This is my first full time job after graduating from college. The process was smooth and everybody seems nice to help me with the onboard process.

    Cons

    There is really no cons in my case except for the area which is pretty shady but I guess there is nothing we can do about it

    I worked at Boston Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The employees are the hardest working people you will find. They are dedicated to a mostly needy patient population.
    The benefits are good.

    Cons

    BMC used to treat staff like family. Now if you don't use your AIDET skills you're disciplined or terminated. They let people go that know the history of BMC/University/BCH and are loyal and dedicated so they can hire employees that will just do the job and don't question them.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to treating employees with respect, get to know them, find out about their lives. People work there for the patients, treat them better, instead of criticising constantly put yourselves in their shoes. Be humble and kind again.
