    Pros

    My coworkers are wonderful as well as the kids throughout the hospital.

    Cons

    If you're working at the Fran in a human services position (TA/res counselor/mental health associate/PCA) and living in Boston, it's likely you'll have to work a second/third job to make ends meet.

    Pros

    My hours were pretty good, I appreciated having four 10 hour shifts as opposed to five eight hour shifts each week.

    Cons

    Some patients told me that it seemed too institutionalized and impersonal the way the front desk was managed, which I agree.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps more patient interaction? 5$36 always tell me they feel valued by the back office staff, which I was apart of but the front office not so much. (Patient reported)
