I have been working at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

There are a lot of "intangibles" and you feel very rewarded at the end of the day. Great benefits, supportive teams, and family support

Cons

The pay is not the best. You often work long hours for no excess pay and there aren't really any bonuses at the end of the year.

    I worked at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interning with Dana-Farber was an extremely rewarding experience. Not only are you working an environment that's helping patients and their families in extremely difficult times, but you're also working with some of the nicest people in Boston. The staff at Dana-Farber across all departments were some of the friendliest people I've every met.

    As an intern, I was given great responsibility in contributing articles for the internal staff newsletter, intranet, and other external publications. The editorial team was wonderful and really made interns feel like valuable members of the department.

    Cons

    Sometimes the tasks as an intern could get repetitive, but usually asking my manager for more work helped alleviate that.

    The internship was for course credit, so I cannot speak to compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make your interns feel like part of the team! I think you all did a wonderful job with that while I was there.
