    I worked at Joslin Diabetes Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You are surrounded by educated personnel, and some
    Of the coworkers gave you reason to keep going ...

    Cons

    Lack of organization .
    They want to centralize the Clinical Research center by providing help to different investigators, yet they still ask the investigators to hire their own Research Assistants and ask them
    To be responsible for them .
    They are running a
    Whole clinical research center with one coordinator , and that being me, giving me 6 studies (in comparison to other coordinators who had 2) and made it seem
    Like It was normal workload .
    Instead of giving me promotion and asking me to supervise the research assistants they asked me
    To act in "advisory role" whatever that means .
    No sense of career growth of opportunity and I am not going to even go on detail about salary .

    Advice to Management

    In order to advance you need to invest . You can't expect to provide great care and services if you have no will to invest in workers who have experience and keep hiring new people with no experience

    Pros

    there are no pros !!

    Cons

    this is a horrible company with extremly bad animal care. to many animals not enough staff. no enrichment in the animal cages. there is tons of sick animals instead of putting them down they wait until the animal dies. they do not separate fighting animals. the mice will have dirty cages and fight wounds also missing body parts. There is a over crowded issue 19 27 and sometime 30 mice per cage.

    no growth.

    has roaches everywhere
    benefits package is horrible if you take it your just pay to work

    Pros

    Every employee takes Joslin's mission statement and uses it to influence their everyday work, friendly people

    Cons

    Very closed off, it was hard to get to know other departments since we are separated by floor. Cliqury, hard to get to know others.

    Advice to Management

    Create a modern, collaborative environment where people can meet and mingle from ALL departments/functions.
