    I worked at UMass Medical School full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Standard benefits and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Doctors in charge are snoots and creeps, cliquey with certain lab techs, some of who were trying to unionize. I was harassed on the job and put on paid suspension based on anonymous complaints. I was terminated after my lawyer contacted them for refusing my request for a copy of my employee file as required by law. Filed a complaint with MCAD and they didn't challenge my unemployment claim. The woman directly responsible for my suspension and termination is no longer employed with UMMS.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the religious bigotry out of the workplace.

    I worked at UMass Medical School full-time

    Pros

    Ability to work off site after 6 months; good work/life balance. Also good: number of days off per year; all state holidays off. Great co-workers

    Cons

    Upper management needs to listen to staff and realize that if many are exiting, there must be a reason and the reason is poor management ....this was not the case when I began here, but as soon as one bad person becomes a leader, it is all down hill if no one will look at the writing on the wall.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and realize you lost a lot of good, highly qualified and experienced nurses due to one person being in charge that had no clue how to properly manage, motivate and keep good staff.
