I worked at Boston Children's Hospital full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

One of the best hospital for children's around the world.
Good employees trying to do a good job.
Patients and families are great.

Cons

Stress levels out the roof.
Management ignoring employee issues that in the end affect patients services.
Do not treat employees well.
Employees trying to do too much with few resources and lack of support.
People go on leave for weeks, and management do not take the steps to replace them.
High turnover, not because we want to leave, but because there is not hope for improvement.
Too much money spend on business analysis and consultants, and in the end nothing happens.
Too much of "we are #1 Hospital" mentality that does not leave room for improvement.
Lack of upper management leadership.

Advice to Management

No need to spend the money in more business analysis or consultants, just make sure managers, at all levels listen to the employees.
Hire more employees, do not leave positions without a well train replacement.
Motivate and recognize the good employees, do not let them go.
Change the obsolete #1 mentality

    Pros

    A teaching hospital is a great place to learn and teach others. A very positive experience. The benefits are fantastic. Here you can make a difference in many children's lives. The surrounding town is fun and beautiful to be in. Children's will teach you necessary skills to move up for free.

    Cons

    It can be far to drive and traffic troublesome. If you are not use to strangers, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    As human beings, we learn from our mistakes. When those mistakes are not corrected for every department, suspicion arises. When suitable replacements can not be found in a reasonable amount of time then those covering should not be held responsible. Team work is the key.
