I have been working at Boston Children's Hospital as an intern

Pros

flexible work hours. intelligent work staff

Cons

Most of the organization is in silos which leads to a lot of inefficiencies. The Information Services Department is somewhat of a trainwreck.

Advice to Management

Developing a process improvement department for the hospital could be extremely beneficial. There is quality improvement work going on in each department with its own unique flavor, but if it was all consolidated under one unified 'children's' banner it could be much more effective. CHB needs to cut out a huge amount of waste in its systems and this would be a great step in accomplishing that.

    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
