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

    Pros

    The doctors are amazing, the facilities are great, you get a lot of freedom to make the job as good as you want it to be. Clinical research is a double edged sword and I have spent many nights here but have learned so much in the process. I really believe this is a fantastic place to work. The hospital medical insurance policy is great albeit expensive.

    Cons

    You will however have to be comfortable accepting a salary that is below market value for just about any major straight out of college with a B.S. if you are working in clinical research. This also depends on the department quite a bit.

    Advice to Management

    The earned time system could use some work. For holidays that you are forced to observe, the employee shouldn't be penalized on earned time.
