    I have been working at Boston Children's Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Culture and values
    Patient care
    Comfortable facilities

    Cons

    I can only speak about the department I worked for.
    Chaotic environment
    Lack of Leadership
    Lack of Management
    Lack of communication
    Management by fear
    Employees penalized after reporting incidents
    Low salaries
    No career opportunities
    Department is unable to quickly adapt to a changing environment
    Management does not accept suggestions to improve performance, resources, budget, and utilization, even if it only requires a simple procedural change.

    A week after announcing the hospital is going through serious budget cuts and laid offs, "Boston Children’s Hospital paid chief Dr. James Mandell a total pay package of about $2 million, including a $725,000 bonus. That marked a 10 percent increase in his total 2009 compensation of $1.8 million." From Boston Globe, Boston-area hospital bosses earn up to $3 million August 16, 2012, by Liz Kowalczyk

    I worked at Boston Children's Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone I interacted with at Children's Hospital was motivating, professional, very helpful, and sincere. I felt that their energy truly motivated me to perform my best in the workplace. Whenever I had questions or wanted to arrange meetings, several of my colleagues were willing to help me.

    Cons

    Since it was a research based position, the hours were just a little bit longer than anticipated; however, I didn't realize I sometimes worked overtime because I enjoyed what I did.

    Advice to Management

    The management is truly outstanding at Children's Hospital Boston. I understand that the upper management is very busy with several other projects, but I would like to see more meetings or lecture talks given by them to the entire lab. I feel like they can be very motivational and help guide the projects that we work on.
