Pros

Boss (PI) extremely encouraging, skilled and motivated. Culture and atmosphere of the hospital and staff very supportive, warm and welcoming. Felt like a community. Longwood Medical Area is also a great place to work and be involved with on a daily basis.

Cons

Would have liked to been paid more, but that is an across the board complaint for any institution. Training modules were somewhat annoying, but super minor complaint (kind of fishing for things to say here)

    Pros

    The overall mission of Children's Hospital Boston is to ultimately cure child illness. I am proud to be a small part of the hospital because of that. The employee benefits are also amazing. I really like the people I work with within my lab.

    Cons

    I feel like the inter-lab community is lacking. Rarely do I have conversations with people in other labs. The administrative staff is wonderful and knowledgeable though.

    Advice to Management

    I would definitely make more of an effort to increase the sense of community, at least within the laboratories.

    Pros

    Hospital's mission and care are top notch.
    Truly groundbreaking research.

    Cons

    Senior Management seems to refuse to work fixing departments that are broken. HR is one of them. It seems that 75% of people in that department don't like what they're doing. Morale is low and turnover is high.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize where change needs to be made and act upon it. Follow up with exit interviews more often to discover why people are unhappy with their workplace.
