    Pros

    It gives a great deal of satisfaction to attend to the kind of population that BMC serves.

    Cons

    The team atmosphere totally depends on the department and lab that you work in, so your different people may have completely different experiences when it comes to work culture.

    I have been working at Boston Medical Center part-time

    Pros

    BMC is such an amazing hospital, and really cares about its community. Of all the hospitals in Boston, it is definitely the most undervalued. From Kate Walsh, the CEO on down, they really care about providing the best care possible to the people they serve. I have worked in many Emergency Departments across the country, from city based Level 1 trauma centers to community hospitals and BMC has some of the best wait times overall, especially considering it is the largest and busiest trauma centers in New England! Amazing programs: Grayken Center for addiction, Rooftop garden, donating millions to provide housing in the community...

    Cons

    Parking... But of all the hospitals in the city, it's probably one of the best

    I have been working at Boston Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Cheap parking
    - Accessible; right off the highway
    - Salary is decent

    Cons

    - Unprofessional; employees bringing in their pets (dogs and cats) each day, walking around the office without shoes etc.
    - Dramatic; employees yelling at each other in the hallways; cliques conspiring to get others fired/quit
    - Meetings are pointless; each meeting stakeholders yell at each other and nothing gets resolved/accomplished
    - Managers don't manage. Instead of dealing with the social issues they tend to hide in their offices
    - Job description, job duties and mangers expectations are all different
    - Stressful and anxiety provoking each day

    Advice to Management

    - Manage the staff
    -Try to acknowledge and fix the toxic culture
