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

    Pros

    The people are generally wonderful to work for, or with. Benefits are solid, and the job is very often rewarding.

    Cons

    Some processes are old and slow. There is not a lot of time spent on internal process improvement (at least not when I was there). Change is slow.

    Advice to Management

    Push the envelope on innovation before it is too late.

    I have been working at Brigham and Women's Hospital full-time

    Pros

    good environment to work, good projects to work on, good people to work with, do not know what else to say.

    Cons

    Salary is significantly less than the average in the market! very hard to get a pay raise and promotion, and capped 2 percent annual raise does not even beat the inflation rates!

    Advice to Management

    pay grades has to be recalculated to reflect the market value to retain the valued employee, I mean staff here, not MDs.
