    Competitive salary, great benefits. Located with minutes of the red, blue and orange lines.

    Poor management! High employee turnover due to job related burnout. We wear 10 different hats and there are always a hundred things pending because there's never enough staff.

    I have been working at Massachusetts General Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Flexible, great insurance and benefits. Gift shop and café have everything you could think of too!

    Cons

    Low pay to start out. A company that really wanted you to stay long-term. Looking for other roles within the company can be hard as the job openings provide very little information about hours and pay.

    Advice to Management

    Push for more money for hardworking employees.

    I worked at Massachusetts General Hospital part-time

    Pros

    Beautiful building in a wonderful location.

    Cons

    Corporate runs the show, from a desk, far away. Pure insanity.

    Advice to Management

    None, your hands are tied by corporate. Expect nothing but frustration and getting blamed for a failed business.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers tend to be brilliant and great, investigators are very well-known. Lots of resources available. Fair amount of autonomy. If you're looking for it, you can and will get published.

    Cons

    Work creeps up. Low pay/benefits (even compared to similar positions at the local universities) and work holidays come out of earned time (aka forced). Very wide range of tasks and responsibilities so you don't feel you're developing much.

    Advice to Management

    We're on the lowest rung so treat us better and we'll show more spirit. It costs a lot to live around here!
