Suggestions for improvement

  • The hospital is currently working to improve employee engagement with the creation of a Young Professionals Group. I think this will help with employee retention and ensuring all staff is aware of what resources are available for career advancement within the hospital. I do not think the hospital currently does a good job of retaining non-clinical staff.

What I like about the company

In my role at the hospital, I have been given the opportunity to advance the state of healthcare nationwide through our research program. My position offers me the ability to work independently, and encourages personal growth. Though the salary is lower than that of other comparable hospitals in the area, the resources provided to employees helps cover the gap in compensation.

What I dislike about the company

The organizational structure of the hospital is very complicated, and not well understood to employees. There are so many levels of leadership, it hard to know who is really in positions to make decisions and who to go to if there is an issue with direct management.

  • The iSuggest initiative is great but can be very slow in turnaround. They could use some help in resolving issues more timely.

What I like about the company

The research team I work for is wonderful and very conscience of work life balance. We work together as a team and plan events to give back to the community as well. Due to the nature of the position, when the weather is really bad and school is cancelled, we are able to work remotely. This is not the case in all offices and positions but it has really be beneficial for me and shows they are very thoughtful when it comes to putting family and safety first.

What I dislike about the company

Working for such a large company means that there is some red tape involved but this is something you would experience at any organization. They are getting better at listening to the end line user so it is great to know that if you make a suggestion, they hear you and try to work to find a solution.

  • Maternity leave and retirement plans.

What I like about the company

It is a pleasure working for one of the best hospitals in the country. My offsite location is ideal in Foxborough, MA so I can avoid the commute / having to use public transportation in the city. I am happy making more money in my job title by the association with Mass General, even though I'm not at the main hospital campus. The health insurance, dental, and vision plans are fantastic. Many perks for discounts from various companies are available. Tuition assistance / reimbursement and vouchers are available for qualifying students. Vouchers are redeemable for online courses through Harvard Teaching Affiliate / Mass General Hospital. Numerous company events occur each year. Yearly bonuses at holidays and for positive reports from hospital wide surveys. The company treats their employees well. Raises are generous. Individual employees receive public recognition for positive feedback from patients.

What I dislike about the company

Short term disability is not offered. Only long term disability is available, and for a weekly cost. Maternity leave is taken out of your ET & ESL. Since we only get a couple of weeks of ESL per year and ET is used throughout the year to pay for our holiday closures/ days off, most people do not have enough time accumulated to pay for their time off. When you get back from maternity leave, you get double deductions in your paycheck each week to catch up for the insurance you couldn't pay for since you weren't making money once your pool/bank was up, in order to catch up. Very frustrating for new mom's. It's tough raising a newborn child and money doesn't come easy for most. I feel as if there should be a better system in place for this situation. Also, I think the retirement savings plan should match a higher percentage. It's hardly anything.
