I worked at Partners HealthCare full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

You get a lot of exposure to all kinds of technologies, whether you are trained in them or not.

Cons

This is a company that goes Top down and everything they do is to make management look good, there is very little consideration for the workers.

Advice to Management

Learn to support your staff, leadership by intimidation only goes so far.

    I have been working at Partners HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are good, great work/life balance because everyone runs out at 5

    Cons

    Overall culture - boring, lifeless, no creativity or out of the box thinking encouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Look around and embrace change; get people excited about working for you, try out new things regarding social media and technologies, train your hospital staff to stop being so entitled.

    I worked at Partners HealthCare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with latest technology; co-workers willing to help out; never lacking for things to do. Ostensibly it's a good thing to work for an amalgamation of research hospitals, but the realities of the work far outweigh the touchy-feeliness of the *idea* of working there.

    Cons

    Interview process did not involve peers, so poor vetting of candidates. Little in the way of guidance. Assumption that employees will be willing to work lots of hours after the end of the workday much of the time. On-call was mind-bogglingly bad. Very poor organizational structure -- poor staffing levels, poor training; no individual empowerment to allow improvement of organization. Lots of finger-pointing and under-the-bus throwing. Lots of 'institutionalized' workers -- 'lifers', you might say. Too many projects that are deemed 'top priority,' so everyone bends over backward and works too hard too quickly to satisfy too many people in positions of power. Over-reliance on the mantra "it is what it is," suggesting that change does not happen easily or willingly. And remarkably mediocre benefits for a healthcare non-profit (including having to buy additional time off). PHS has lots of money, but also a great deal of institutional arrogance, and isn't afraid to throw its weight around.

    Advice to Management

    Dramatically increase staffing levels, especially within Information Systems. Change the IS structure so that support and workload are more equitably distributed. Spend more on staffing and benefits (PHS can afford it, and can't afford not to). Make employees want to stay, not leave.
