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

    Pros

    The patient population is diverse, and if you enjoy a challenging work environment you'll never be bored. Your colleagues are probably going to be great people who genuinely care about the hospital and the people it serves.

    If you work an office job at BMC it seems like the stresses are way, way less than when you actually are involved in care.

    Cons

    The hospital runs like a for-profit business, is top-heavy, and is completely disconnected from the realities of patient care with the kinds of patients it serves.

    Management on all levels in many departments seems like it's staffed by people who were hired for prestige reasons or people who were promoted because they've just been around the longest. Nobody in power seems to have any experience managing themselves, let alone entire teams of people. Initiatives and big hospital changes come down on direct-care staff who get punished when ridiculous quotas aren't met, and everyone fears further repercussions if they speak out about their worries or feeling overwhelmed.

    Advice to Management

    Have less managers. Have the management you DO keep, in every department, go to multiple yearly trainings about interpersonal comunnication, diversity, and how to use basic computer software. Come down from your offices and shadow your actual doctors, PAs, RNs, CNAs, CMs, SWs, and everyone else for a few hours to see what the work is really like.
