What I like about the company

The company likes to hire from within, so it's hard to get on the inside. However, I know people who've been at DFCI for over 20 years. It's an amazing place to work- it relies on its employees and all of their unique abilities. once you start working to ave someone's life, it's hard to think about doing anything else.

What I dislike about the company

People tend to have their way and their way only. It's amazing that people stay with with hospital for so long, but it's important to be flexible as new generations start to join the daily pool of people you see and interact with.
