      Amazing research opportunities and tons of innovation

      Big egos at MGH

      Pros

      You get to do world-class research with some brilliant people.

      Cons

      There's little oversight on how PIs at MGH treat their employees. Some of the people who lead labs here foster a toxic working relationship. During my year working for a lab at MGH, my coworkers and I were yelled at countless times. Moreover, there is significant unpaid work for lab jobs. I worked multiple 80-hour weeks, for which I was paid only for my usual 20 hours. Also, the pay is awful across Mass General Brigham hospitals for those of us who just graduated from college.
