Suggestions for improvement

  • I would like a change in the time off request policy. If someone does not work on the same shift as you their time off request should not affect your time off request.

What I like about the company

Every morning I receive a compliment and a sincere appreciation for me coming into work.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove the process of requesting time off

Suggestions for improvement

  • There is really not much I would say needs to be changed. I truly enjoy working here.

What I like about the company

MGH is a great place to work - It is easy to get to in Boston, is like its own city - once you are there they have everything you will need, and is an upbeat environment to be in.

What I dislike about the company

Although MGH is the size It is, It could be bigger actually to better accommodate patients and families.
