Suggestions for improvement

  • Empower managers to make decisions based on wider parameters. Increase transparency on wages across the board, and invest more in administrative staff.

What I like about the company

BCH is an inspiring place to work and the institution is filled with brilliant and caring people at all levels. There is an effort by leadership to create a positive and inclusive culture, although sometimes they fall short of these goals.

What I dislike about the company

Administrative staff is not valued enough and compensation is somewhat low, although it has approved. The focus on keeping clinicians happy often comes at the expense of non clinical staff, leading to high turnover rates in some areas. Managers are not able to promote adminstrative staff without lengthy approval process. Empowering managers to make decisions and invest in their high performing employees would decrease turnover and increase the number of long term employees, saving an incredible amount of time and money that is spent constantly hiring new staff.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Treat the administrative staff better. You can't run practices this large without them, and the turnover would not be so high if they were simply treated better.

What I like about the company

I worked my way up from a front desk person to a mid level manager in about 5 years. There is opportunity for growth for those who want to work hard. The health benefits were good as well.

What I dislike about the company

It is a very stressful work environment. The doctors and nurses often try and blame the administrative staff for all of their problems. Often when it is clear the doctors were at fault(for example, their schedule is extremely overbooked because they cancelled 5 out of 6 clinics but kept doing surgeries which caused the schedulers to have to overbook all of the post op patients), upper management has to look the other way as the doctors are untouchable there.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better pay. More support from management when there are complaints/confrontation between bedside staff.

What I like about the company

I meet new people and learn new things every single day. Families travel from all over the world to come to BCH because we do so many amazing things there that other hospitals simply can't do. Most patients/families are extremely grateful and appreciative of the care I provide. When difficult situations arise with some families, both the families and nursing staff are supported by a wonderful social work team. I am extremely proud of what I do every single day.

What I dislike about the company

The compensation could definitely be better. Nearby hospitals pay a decent amount more than BCH. As with most companies, many decisions in practice changes come from "the higher ups" who do not actually work at the bedside. Many times the bedside staff does not agree with these decisions and essentially just has to trial them to prove they are not the best decisions. The bedside staff have alot of influence over alot of things but we need more influence over some of this practice change decisions.
