    Pros

    Great atmosphere and enriching work environment. Various fields of research can interact leading to multiple collaboration opportunities. Also, the location is great (city center).

    Cons

    There are not many cons to report. Being a postdoc imply working on your experiments as well as finding your own grants for your project and manage students. You need to be good at multitasking

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the great job you are doing. HR department is very helpful and answers any question you might have very quickly.

    I worked at Massachusetts General Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You are a part of a place that saves lives and thrives on excellence. Outstanding benefits, a million different career options, multiple locations, and excellent leadership.

    Cons

    Main campus is not a place you can easily drive to, and healthcare is typically not at the top end of the pay scale.

    Advice to Management

    Stop layering departments with middle management, and figure out how to leverage Partners-wide market share.

    Pros

    Take the time to help employees achieve the highest pay raise possible. It seems like HR has the final decision

    I have been working at Massachusetts General Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Competitive pay and great workplace culture. They really make you feel like you're part of their community and integral to the care of their patients, regardless of what your position is.

    Cons

    They don't match your 401k, and if you're in an entry level research position, there doesn't seem to be much upward mobility (a bunch of RAs usually go to grad school instead). It works really well if you're planning on going back to school, but it's something other employees that don't fall into that category should know.

    Love the hospital culture and benefits. The salaries for research staff are low but competitive to other neighboring hospitals. Love my office coworkers and I maintain a good work life balance
