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

    Pros

    Great company mission and excellent benefits

    Cons

    High Stress, Nepotism and bullying, lack of structure and process, leadership constantly throwing staff under the bus (no respect for the people working for them), Continuously push out strong employees (very high turnover)

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example, do not penalize good employees for "mistakes" caused by outdated processes, lack of support and training, and unrealistic workloads.

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

    Pros

    Customers and you coworkers recognize and acknowledge your hard work even though management doesn’t.

    Cons

    No growth for black minorities within this pharmacy. No growth for those not sucking up to current management. Work flow could be a lot smoother if the scheduling was done better. Management seems to have no care to improve their work flow due to suggestions and ideas are not fairly welcomed from Techs and Pharmacists. Once you express a concern you become a target.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on making sure your current staff is supported in all areas and stop retaliating on employees who which out to higher management/HR with issues and concerns. Not a bad pharmacy but definitely needs new management that care.

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

    Pros

    Free health insurance (IF you live in Boston and can stay within BMC afflilated care facilities)

    Cons

    -Management doesn’t care about the grunts in the trenches

    -Completely micromanages problems focusing on tiny, unimportant things when the dutiful employees are trying to put out a forest fire with a squirt gun.

    -Workloads are absolutely ridiculous; one shift seems to carry the weight of three, yet gets blamed for all the problems left behind by the other two shifts. Other shifts have more staff, but less work seems to get done

    -If employees cannot pull their weight, they should be let go. It makes no sense in keeping on an employee who does half the work as their coworkers but gets paid much, much more than they do.

    -If you have a problem, there is no one you can go to to have it solved. Middle and upper management will tell you they’re “working to make the problem better” but then nothing will be done about it, even after multiple requests and multiple assurances that the problem is “being worked on”.

    -No respect between departments

    Advice to Management

    Clean house in the basements. Listen to your employees. All the good ones are going to leave, and the problems will just continue to get worse, not better.
