      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Massachusetts General Hospital full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Very rich research environment, lots of access to human clinical trails and human data, great learning environment

      Cons

      Hospital seems to have plenty of money for fancy new buildings, yet pays its PhD employees a wage well below the 70% AMI and as Boston rent soars, the commute time to affordable housing increases, and this downside cannot be ignored. It is worth knowing MGH pays NIH MINIMUM and uses the scale from the previous FY not the current.

      Advice to Management

      PAY YOUR PEOPLE A LIVING WAGE. I complain about a postdoc salary, but the technicians have it even worse. It appears you do not value highly trained research staff whatsoever. The NIH guidelines are a minimum not a maximum! BE considerate that living in this area is extremely expensive, and nearly impossible for those with dependents.

          Former Employee - RN Staff Nurse in Boston, MA

          I worked at Massachusetts General Hospital full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          - camaraderie - good place to get experience

          Cons

          - lack of nursing leadership. - not able to take vacation. you just call out and people expect that since you can't get off the time you requested - high percentage of RNs in ED are travelers

          Advice to Management

          stop telling staff "it is a privilege to work there" and the reason for the low pay
