    Great Colleagues, Bad Management, Impossible Workloads

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    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.

    Pros

    Lots of micromanagement at the inpatient pharmacy which leads to people leaving left and right. Very fast turn over. Managers have no management qualifications or skills.

    Cons

    Parking is expensive and far. Lot of micromanagement.

    Wonderful people and flexibility

    May 12, 2016 - Clinical Research Assistant 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I work with the most amazing team, all of whom care a great deal about helping the patients and each other as much as possible. I got pneumonia a couple months ago and still haven't fully recovered. My boss has been amazing letting me work some half days (half at the office, half remote) while I continue to recover.

    Cons

    People keep leaving and the workload for the people remaining grows exponentially each time another person leaves. I'm at capacity, but will soon be expected to take on a lot more when 2 people leave.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    A great team to work for, especially when you are first starting out in the industry. People who research here really do have a love of scientific advances and enjoy their work.

    Cons

    Not in a great neighborhood, no real communication between departments. HR can be a nightmare to deal with especially during the hiring process.
