I work for a contract SNF company in seattle and we have SO many OT positions open - is everyone else having the same struggle? Where are all the OTs? How are other companies managing?

    Pros

    It's convenient to get to if you drive. It's a known hospital. Big hospital. Shuttle service is good. Close to Public transportation.

    Cons

    Unfair pay compared to other techs if ur a person of color or a woman. Definitely a lot of favoritism, and management needs a lot of training

    Pros

    MGH lookgs great on your resume. It is an easy commute and there is room for growth given the size of the hospital and its specialties. The hospital is very busy with a lot of international patients. It's a great hospital to gain overall healthcare experience and knowledge.

    Cons

    unfair and low pay. However, I am not sure if this benefit applies to ALL coordinators; but the hospital does offers tuition reimbursement!!!!

    Amazing Opportunity…Insulting Pay for those with a degree.

    Pros

    Science laboratory skills, connections, learning to manage a challenging workload, new skills, being around lots of young people who have a similar mind for career path. Lots of mentors. A great place to learn. 29 days off a year with great PTO accrue rate. Health insurance is ok but should be cheaper for a hospital system. Your experience is very dependent on the lab you join and your PIs personality.

    Cons

    All of these amazing skills you receive are at the penalty of being paid nearly a slave wage, truly. To put it in perspective there are fast food workers who now have a higher hourly rate post covid. Many brilliant technicians could stay longer if they were compensated better. Boston is a very expensive city to live in and with increasing cost of living in the last few years the pay needs to increase. Car parking at CNY is ~$120 month and although the T pass is reduced it’s about $90. If you’re on commuter rail it’s $260. Weekly take home pay? It’s barely $500/week on a technician salary if you have health insurance and pay to commute to work (you will). You will not be able to save much as a trade off for the experience you get.

    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.

    Pros

    I liked the patient interaction, I learned a lot by being there, I have great co-workers on my particular floor. also I love that they use EPIC here, its so efficient!

    Cons

    often understaffed, the pay isn't enough considering how understaffed it is at times. it can be very disorganized transportation like shuttles are unreliable and the amount you pay for parking is crazy considering how much you are paid

    Pros

    The dietitians are amazing to work with - excellent practice, very hard working and clinically focused.

    Cons

    The pay is very low compared to the area and the clinical dietitians are not well understood by their own director

    I think giving it 2 stars is generous

    Pros

    -Learning opportunities that come with working at an academic institute -Nice location and convenient to T -Food options pretty good -Some admin people can be very caring and responsive to staff needs

    Cons

    -The micromanagement was baffling. Some of the doctors who do research really can act like as you have to kiss the ground they walk on. They'll ghost meetings and lack communication but will look for a way to blame the research staff rather than introspect their own styles. Some of them do not answer to any mode of communication, but will still have high expectations for you to find a way to communicate. It's a waste of one's time and hours in the day. There were also high expectations to be readily available whether in late evening or on weekends and any time and when you don't meet an expectation, instead of understanding, you were reprimanded. Not a productive or conducive environment and not paid enough to make those kinds of adjustments -Siloed environment-every PI and research department will be different (hopefully better than the style I mentioned above). Hardly get to collaborate with others, but expected in a large academic institute -Terrible pay: be prepared for a $30K pay cut for data analysis skills that will be worth more elsewhere -Good publishing opportunities will vary by who you work with -Will not have access to most Harvard med classes or trainings unless your PI approves, despite a @harvard.edu e-mail
