    I have been working at Partners HealthCare full-time

    Pros

    benefits, interesting industry, good mission

    Cons

    No professional development. Partners pays lip service but very little training classes offered for frontline to management employees. If you go outside for a conference, you have to use tuition reimbursement to fund it and managers play favorites on if they approve your request.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your management team and offer a wide range of classes since there is little offered without having to pay out of your own pocket and getting reimbursed.
    Upper management get executive coaches while frontline employees and managers get next to nothing.

    I have been working at Partners HealthCare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Noble cause, welcoming culture, smart people, good location at assembly row, good pay, good health insurance

    Cons

    Poor 401k match and only starts after a year of employment, no performance based bonuses (haven't been through a year end review yet, so not sure what yearly pay increases look like), inability to negotiate more than 2 weeks vacation time - I went from 4 weeks in previous role to 2 weeks here, intranet site doesn't include all employee reference tools all in one place

    Advice to Management

    Accept new ideas as they come. "Let's just try it" is a mentality that's not at the core of the company yet. As they look to get it right the first time, the experimentation and learning mentality is not part of the culture yet.

    Tighten up the employee services and make sure everything is linked and easy to find on the intranet site. It's time consuming to have to go to a different website completely to view my paycheck or take online training.
