    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Brigham and Women's Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with some amazing people day to day who really care about our patients.

    Cons

    The senior administration and management seem more focused on meeting quotas rather than the doctors and staff who work tirelessly.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes I think there is a disconnect between management and staff which could be improved upon. More specifically, I think there there is a lack of understanding from management about how certain jobs are executed, what is required, and the amount of time it takes to accomplish them.

    I have been working at Brigham and Women's Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Solid company, solid benefits, relative high pay.

    Cons

    I work in the central pharmacy, and it is infested with trolls. Of course, not everyone is nasty, in fact some are great co-workers. And friction in the workplace is common. But I never worked at a place like that, without culture of mutual respect and not even commitment to clean language. It is very stressful and eroding.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize improving this aspect.
