    Former Employee - Clinical Research Coordinator I in Boston, MA

    I worked at Tufts Medical Center part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Was able to work on great studies. Physicians I worked with were great people and amazing doctors. The other research staff were typically very good at their jobs and cared about their work. The experience working on good studies with skilled PIs at a well known institution is valuable for getting into the clinical research industry in general.

    Cons

    If you were not a doctor or a student, you were not valuable to the overall organization. You are low-balled and put into the lowest position possible with respect to job classification and managers don't go to bat for you to help improve your position or pay. You are disposable.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Tufts Medical Center full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    decent insurance, close to bus line (for now), basic hours with no take home work.

    Cons

    Management plays clear favorites, even speaking in second language to lower level employee when badmouthing employees on floor. Favorite employees get to be off of phone and hanging in managers office, rest of team pulls weight. Second in charge does not know what she is doing, often puts her work on others who then get in trouble or encouraged to quit. Incompetence from the highest level, but management are professionals at letting others take the fall.
