    I have been working at Massachusetts General Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The name demands respect, the job provides independence and creativity, and the research facilities are state of the art. Mass. General takes care of their employees and does what it takes to make sure things are run properly.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to similar positions in industry or other neighboring institutions. Many people work here (in research coordinator roles specifically) because it is a great resume builder on the way to grad. school or med. school.

    Advice to Management

    It's great to get to play with $3 million machines, but perhaps try to spread some of that wealth to employees, too!
