    Pros

    Great team work With our direct management and teams.

    I worked at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Some amazing co-workers - If you have a good team for the day, everything runs smoothly if not better

    Cons

    - Sometimes you work with mediocre/lazy staff for the day, makes it harder to solve problems when they arise (and they will) - Communication between techs is almost non-existent, issues become lingering and anger the rest of the hospital staff - Sense of favoritism among upper-management and supervisors - No formal on-boarding training besides 2-3 days of light shadowing, learn on-the-go
