    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Cambridge Health Alliance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    locations are convenient to get to

    Cons

    Management doesn’t care about employees, severely understaffed at all times, 70% of the patient population doesn’t speak English so you’re constantly using third party translation services just to do the simplest transactions. Always busy, you leave feeling over worked and underpaid every day. Worst locations are the main hospital in Cambridge and Malden...both are basically drowning in work daily. Training is basically non existent and you constantly feel like you don’t know anything because they’re too busy too actually show you how to do your job which in turn frustrates you and your coworkers. No room for growth your pay is minuscule compared to what you put up with on a day to day basis.
