    I worked at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only good thing is the view from the cafeteria.

    Cons

    Worst management I've ever seen. Maybe now that they are merging with Partners, things will improve. It is scary how they operate. Also as a patient, I've received inflated bills for tests that were never done.

    Advice to Management

    They need a new CEO.

    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.
