Former EmployeeWorked in Research/development at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA.

What I like

I was a very competitive environment but also had plenty of room and opportunities for advancement. I learned a lot during the time I worked at MGH (2004-2008). It offered a multicultural and warm working environment, where colleagues became good friends. Salaries were competitive but Boston is an expensive city, which makes our financial expectations lower. Managers were all successful scientists in their fields.

What I dislike

Upper management needs some degree of improvement and should focus on listening to their employees more.

Suggestions for improvement

I would spend more time and use all opportunities to listen the concerns of employees/staff.

What I like

The company has been amazing during the Covid response, it is a hard time for everyone, but the support is unwavering. We always have the supplies we need, and self care is emphasized.

What I dislike

There is not always enough top down communication. We are often left in the dark when it comes to sudden policy changes. Please communicate more!

Suggestions for improvement

Communicate more with the support staff, and pay more attention to non clinical personnel!
