    I have been working at Boston Medical Center part-time

    Pros

    Much of working at BMC is amazing. The staff are all engaged and excited about their work. The patient population is one that needs a lot of help, and it's an honor to be in an organization that cares about providing it. The benefits are good.

    Cons

    Time off and sick time are in the same pool, which is great if you're healthy and horrible if you have health problems.

    Management is often dysfunctional. This varies from department to department, but some departments have had enormous turnover in the past few years due to management concerns

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to employee exit interviews.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the mission and diversity of the organization.

    Cons

    The Hospital is a Unionized environment. Most of the time the Union is great to work with, but sometimes there are challenges related to process. I had a colleague who refused to follow the union policy. As we moved through the progressive action process, one of the steps was that the employee was given a 3-day leave, with pay, so that she could "decide" whether to comply with union policy. Other employees had to pick up the slack until the employee decided to follow the rules.
