    I have been working at Boston Medical Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I begin as a medical assistant in "02" I've been promoted several times and work as a team coordinator. If you're union they'll pay for your college education; however you only can take 6 credits per semester. If you work for B.U. hospital side you can attend BU for free

    Cons

    Since it is union based, as management, I've dealt with them a lot. I finally was able to get rid of 2 employees after 5 years of supervising them. Parking is a killer I pay $50 per week pre-tax. Maybe because the facility is located in the inner city the patients we serve are tough, but they need the help. Upper management is not that helpful; we are so short staff in the clinic my director decides to go to Mexico for a month.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to why there is such a high turn over rate in a particular department. Also, supervisors, team coordinators need more support with out of control staff.

    Pros

    The Unions are in place so the Employees have a voice. The hospital takes care of the patients that have no other place to go. They support the community with food pantries and other community out reach programs. Good medical care at almost half the cost of the other area hospitals.

    Cons

    The hospital needs to advertise their services. They need to push quality doctors and services at low costs for low overhead. They need to follow up with the patients. They need something new, like visiting doctors program or something that the other hospitals are not doing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the their employees, ask the average Joe their opinion. Make the hospital more like the hospital for the Boston community. Set up some type of satellites so they can reach out to the patients that don't want to come into Boston.
