    Pros

    Good experience in a clinical setting, get to work closely with nurses and physicians in research. Don't need much medical experience, though it is very helpful in interviewing and learning in the position.

    Cons

    Not great pay, but OK for first year out of college.

    Stepping Stone Position

    Apr 11, 2022 - Research Technician II in Charlestown, MA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Learn lots of techniques and procedures. Depending on the lab, incredible mentorship.

    Cons

    Low pay; industry position (after acquiring the necessary experience of 2ish years) pays approximately $35,000-$40,000 more per year for the exact same work. MGH as an institution (not the PIs or post docs, most are incredible!) also does not provide its employees with much. Parking is not free, the biggest treat you get is a free cookie every Thursday, and you are rarely rewarded by the hospital, even if you are working with dangerous chemicals or viruses, making ground breaking discoveries. Countless companies, industry or not, provide their employees with large yearly raises, free snacks, drinks and coffee machines, free logo wear, free parking, fair/high paying salaries, etc. while MGH simply does not. If you want to wear a quarterzip with the generic logo on it, $85 no discount. Same price as if a non-MGH employee wanted to buy one. Small things? Maybe. But in the end, there are greater rewards, benefits and salaries elsewhere that don't even require a huge jump in responsibility.

    Pros

    benefits, PTO, sick days, earned time are all great! Management is for the most part very professional and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    very hard for people with minimal positions to get in despite applying for entry level positions. I was lucky enough to be given a chance but have seen one too many times people being turned away when the potential is there.

    Pros

    As a nursing student, this job has provided more learning than any of my clinical experiences ever have. The nurses on the floor are generally pretty good, but just like anywhere there are always a few that treat us like second-class citizens.

    Cons

    -Extremely understaffed (but what hospital isn't) -The hospital at large treats you like you are replaceable -No parking unless you want to pay an absurd amount or work nights -JUST increased the pay for us, but prior to last week I was making $4-$6 less than my classmates who work the same job at other hospitals in the area (in general mass gen tends to do this, although they are getting better they are notorius for underpaying staff as it is a "privilege" to work there in their eyes)
