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

    Pros

    I have been at Partners for just under 6 months and have had nothing but a great experience so far. The new building at Assembly Row was built to promote collaboration and teamwork and as far as I can see it has served its purpose. I have felt welcomed since my very first day. I am on a great team that is there to support and help each other in any way they can. The benefits that are offered are very competitive. I highly recommend Partners Healthcare.

    Cons

    None that I can see.

    Pros

    Good benefits, kind colleagues, competent management, interesting work, flexible hours

    >20% lower salary than comparable private company; selects for people who are looking for this flexibility/income tradeoff, which creates an odd work environment

    Advice to Management

    Varies by group, but for me the door is always open

    Pros

    staff are knowledgeable and helpful to one another. Insurance benefits

    Cons

    long hours, no backing of staff, no transparency, a lot of management and not enough ground workers, lack of time off,

    Advice to Management

    more transparency and honesty. more help on the ground level and less hiring of upper management. cross training of management to help on ground level to stay relevant. need to expand specialty serviced provided to patients and actually have these specialties available to staff help the ground workers and patients and not just an email or a class. encourage conversations, discussions and foster idea's

    Pros

    Benefits, co workers, health insurance

    Cons

    Shrinking pay, 2% raises, no promotions, bad management

    Advice to Management

    You're losing and burning out high performance employees due to lazy managers who can no longer due the job or manage a team. Stop the politics and favortism and start promoting some of these high performers, instead of losing them, if you want to stay cutting edge.
