Senior Research Technician/Assistant Lab Manager (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – March 4, 2016
BIDMC is Harvard Medical associated and a very competitive atmosphere. However, the group I worked in was highly collaborative, friendly and supportive. I left only because the institute where I was working was disbanded.
Coworkers are great and and are team players. It is satisfying to help people who are uncomfortable being in the Emergency Room.
Patient Access Representative (Current Employee) – Needham, MA – November 19, 2015
Nice place to work. You learn that treating a patient and their family the way you would want to be treated is essential for good relations and customer satisfaction. There is a lot of paper work that goes into the job, but this is a hospital and everything has to be accurate and procedures followed. The people I work with are great. Management needs to be more helpful when needed. There is really no hard part to the job. I have been doing it for so long it comes naturally. The part of the job I find most enjoyable is when patients tell you that their medical care was good and they feel much better.
coworkers, location, feeling respected
Short lunch, no real breaks, can't leave the desk for any reason. If the facilities need to be used, I need to find staff to sit at my desk. It has to be manned 24/7.
Unit Coordinator (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – April 27, 2016
Working in the Emergency Room was exciting, everyday you come to work was a different atmosphere, you never know what kind of day it was going to be and everyday is not the same, You stay busy and the time goes by fast.
great place to work if you are looking for a large environment hospital

Surgical technician (Current Employee) – Boston, ma – November 4, 2012
Staff are being over worked. No family values Management are a bunch of bullying, useless people who actually makes you choose between your job or family. As soon as I get a chance at a better opportunity I am out the door. Management has absolutely no respect for the employees and knows nothing. Sickens me every time I think that I have to go into Bidmc. The hospital would of actually been a good place to be If it wasn't for the horrible management operating rooms have. Most of the co-worker are good people.
Excellent institution with job security- diminished morale with limited staffing
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – March 19, 2015
BIDMC strives for quality patient care- and is an established institution that enables employees to maintain a work-life balance. Unfortunately due to limited staffing and increasing acuity; it is easy to develop a negative morale among the work culture. Opportunities for advancement, networking and education are present- but management is slow to acknowledge the diminished morale among staff members that contributes to the negative work culture.
Academic institution; opportunities for advancement
Unit Coordinator OB (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – November 17, 2013
Usually when I come in to work, I put the non-select meals on the computer system for the patients that is unable to talk or order for themselves Make sure all the meals are put in for clear liquids or full liquids diets Take calls and assist patients when they are ready to order either their breakfast, lunch and dinner I've learned a lot in this job and still learning new things, I was not very familiar with different kinds of diets until I began working here and became familiar with what kinds of foods are on those specific dietary restrictions The hardest part of the job is sometimes deal with patients that is having a hard time dealing with the fact they have a restricted dietary order from their doctors and they tend to blame it on the food service since we have very limited options on what they can have or not have on that specific diet order One thing that I enjoy about this job is the fact since I've been here for the longest of all of the jobs I had it's because they work very well with my school schedule and pay reasonable

Manage Care Coordinator-Promotion (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – January 7, 2016
BIDMC is more then a just your basic employer, here at BIDMC they provide you with opportunity to advance in your field, as well as advance within your education. I love the flexibility within my department and the family atmosphere that we have all created. We are a real team here. Our patient population can be challenging at times, but again we believe in team work here and if we can help defuse a situation anyone of us will help out.
Motility Technician (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – March 20, 2013
Great place to work. Wonderful team of nurses and doctors. Many shops and transportaion available to and from the hospital. Cultural atmosphere. I learn how to do specific test and customer skills. Most enjoyable part of my job is meeting new people and learning new techniques and the busy work load. Hardest part of my job: doesnt matter how bad the weather is--hospital staff are required to be here. Co-workers are helpful and always willing to answer questions and train.
