    I have been working at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Doctors i work with are the BEST! The most renowned and well stablished yet down to earth professsionals.

    Cons

    Too many "kids" working there. A very "back stabbing", "pulling the rug under your feet" kind of environment. Politics rule. ALWAYS UNDER staffed so we are expected to be shuffed between departments and overperform/work. Don't expect to get UNPAID lunch covereage/break neither! Rarelly happens, unless you fight for it. I am getting it now, after 3 years on the job.

    Advice to Management

    Try to retain your staff (the good/hard work ones) by appreciating them more. Hire QUALIFIED personal and treat them well so that they dont leave after a few months leaving the already few of us on a crunch performing the job of two or three professionals. Try to work with staff to creat a healthier, professional and more pleasant work envirinment.

    Pros

    Current Director of Pharmacy is an amazing person who cares about his employees and their needs.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? We are over worked, understaffed, underpaid and under appreciated. Moral is at an all-time low and everyone is jumping ship--including me! Disgusted with uppermanagent all they care about is saving money for making their bonuses. Stay far away from this place.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about the average employee and care less about your fancy holiday parties. You are losing more and more great employees over this broken upper management.
