I worked at Baystate Health part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The company was really interested in my having a variety of experiences. I was focused in research doing some basic data analysis but I was also given time to shadow others in various positions from different techs in the radiology department to different procedures in the operating room. I was given leeway to pursue some fo the things I demonstrated I did well in which helped me to get more experience and hone my skills.

Cons

Some of the basic job function was a bit slow. I think more than anything else it just wasn't the right fit for me in terms of data analysis, but there were times when management simply didn't have anything for me to do. They'd give me something that was supposed to take a week and it took at day, and then they'd be at a loss as to what to do with me. In those cases I talked with co-workers or read a book for a bit.

Advice to Management

I think the main thing is to just make sure everyone is being utilized efficiently. I definitely felt like there were people around who spent half of their time not doing work.

    Pros

    Good pay compared to other places, senior leadership has a good vision for the future. Most people were friendly and helpful to others.

    Cons

    Management plays favorites. Very little advancement opportunities. They generally hire people at higher salaries from the outside as opposed to advancement from within.
