Suggestions for improvement

  • I would like to see constructive feedback from the manager and not having the manager hide. I would like the see employees treated fairly.

What I like about the company

ive generally liked the company until I switched location and the manager thrives on conflict and focus is on the wrong things. I'm in my 40s, I just want to do a good job, help my coworkers and go home to my family at the end of the day and forget about work until the next day.

What I dislike about the company

i disapprove of upper managament and how they bully some of the employees. I have an HR background and have never seen anything like this.

Company Culture

A lot of the people are great, but there is a lack of respect and a thought that employees should be happy just working at the company

Teamwork

this is essential

Freedom to work independently

Lots of opportunity to work independently

Internal Communication

Can be good, but is a struggle

Work-Life Balance

this can get challenging.

Challenging Work

I am creating a new role and problem solving every day.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Everyone needs to make more money. There needs to be assistance when it comes to raises, transportation help and benefits.

What I like about the company

Working for a hospital can be greatly rewarding as you can have a huge impact on patients and families during some of their hardest times. There is a great team of people working there and they are all pulling for the same thing.

What I dislike about the company

There is a feeling that just working at the #1 children's hospital in the world should be a benefit itself. Because of this, many benefits have been rolled back. Everyone can also make more money.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The company should not be so nurse-centric and I would revisit pay of everyone performing life saving clinical tests and make sure they are paid fairly.

What I like about the company

My company performs a lot of medical miracles for children who are the sickest of the sick. They come first and foremost and no stone is ever left unturned in regards to their care.

What I dislike about the company

Our company needs to value its clinical staff who aren't doctors and nurses more. We are underpaid and over worked. Acknowledging the work that is done behind the scenes and paying fairly for the work that is done would be a good start toward a better tomorrow.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The culture is high-intensity and stress, and there could be more effort to incorporate better work-life balance and mental health wellness practices. Volunteer days and group outings would improve morale.

What I like about the company

Healthcare professionals at Boston Children's Hospital are highly skilled and pleasant to work with. Working with patients was highly rewarding and meaningful. I experienced significant personal growth while working there.

What I dislike about the company

There is a lack of appropriate management for research projects, and clinical research assistants require more oversight and guidance
