    It was an honor to work for an institution that honors its mission statement daily, "Exceptional Care without exception"

    Pros

    It is a place to learn and grow like no other due to its patient population, cultural diversity in all aspects, teaching facility and premier research, studies and programs.

    Cons

    Parking is extremely limited and prime, hence a bit costly if you drive to work or must take public transportation in order not to spend so much in either parking fees or parking tickets.

    Amazing place to work

    Pros

    This facility has the best combination of the most challenging patient population and the most brilliant and dedicated staff. Before I came here I was feeling burnt out with the medical industry, but now I leave everyday knowing that I made a difference. (Sounds corny, but it's true)

    Cons

    Parking is expensive and far from campus.

    Pros

    Wonderfully diverse patient population, passionate and talented coworkers

    Cons

    Work can be stressful and population is highly traumatized, significant pressure on faculty to meet productivity requirements while dedicating less and less time to teaching/program development, administration disconnected from what the work actually is

    A first job that stuck!

    Apr 6, 2021 - Registered Nurse in Boston, MA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I completed the Critical Care New Grad RN residency in 2019 and I would highly recommend! 5-6 months orientation, extensive classroom and hands on training, and most importantly I felt supported and welcomed on my unit (Surgical/Neuro ICU). Coming up on my 3 year work anniversary in October and I'm not going anywhere!

    Cons

    You don't get the big name recognition like MGH/BI if you're into that sort of thing. Patient population can be a challenge, but being the safety net hospital, if we don't take care of them who will?

    Brilliant but somewhat dysfunctional

    Business Outlook

    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

    Pros

    Wonderful team of healthcare professional and support staff that truly care for the diverse patient population they treat.

    Cons

    Documentation is unnecessarily time consuming and there is too much focus on non-clinical performance metrics.
