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

    Pros

    - great benefits
    - access to LMA shuttle
    - 50% off commuter rail

    Cons

    - pay is insanely low, sometimes as low as $13/hour
    - staff is generally rude and miserable- no one holds doors, people will walk into you in the halls, if there is a problem expect your coworkers to know before you do
    - Common practice of "throwing into the fire" technique of training with little input taken from the new hires
    - No room to move up
    - you will be working weekends and after hours- whether it be in the office or through email and phone

    Advice to Management

    Train staff thoroughly throughout their first few months and listen to their advice and thoughts. Make sure to check in with your staff individually an try to stay professional. Don't make your "favorites" as noticeable. Don't compare employees to make a point.
