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

    Pros

    Amazing team of helpful employees. Everyone going above and beyond to assist.

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

    Pros

    Great flexibility in this startup stone fabrication organization - looking forward to the future

    Cons

    As a startup things are rapidly changing and you will not last long if you can not go with the flow and adjust on the fly

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hone systems and processes, but listen to all departments as you work towards further success

    I have been working at Brigham and Women's Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    World-class environment for biomedical research. Offers the opportunity to work with really smart physicians/scientists. Gives plenty of reasons to be proud of the institution you work at -- even when you are a postdoc that is grossly underpaid for his/her qualifications. But that's being a postdoc in general for you.

    Cons

    Academic advancement (promotion to faculty) involves a lot of red tape (mostly due to Harvard's bureaucracy) and the related administrative process is slow, even if you have all the "institutional criteria" down.
    Overall, the environment is *very* hierarchical, i.e. it's a hospital where naturally MD is king, and as a biomedical investigator (whether junior or senior faculty), people have to work with (read: work for) physicians, which means there is less academic freedom compared to what you would get at a research university. But along with that restriction comes access to the unique resources of a nationwide acclaimed hospital and the affiliation with Harvard (see Pros above). That's the main tradeoff.
