ED Assistant (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – July 23, 2016
A typical day at work would be stocking medical equipments, supplies, transporting patients to and from the department, observing more than one psychiatric patient at a time. I learn a lot at work, the staff is always willing to help you and also it's a teaching Hospital. I enjoy most part of my job however when it comes to sit to watch patient it's really tiring. Overall I love my job.
Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – May 20, 2015
A typical day at work for me was challenging because no employee resources exists to allow employees to engage a healthy work/life balance, e.g. No EAP. You are constantly monitored by "cold callers" who are hired to deliberately interrupt work flow to evaluate employee performance. The most enjoyable part to the job, however, was providing care and assistance to the departments patients and the overall organization.

Postdoctoral Fellow (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – July 2, 2015
I have been in BIDMC for three years. For my personal experience, it's not a friendly working environment and the culture is not great. But the location is good and associated with other Harvard-affiliated hospitals.

Medical and Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – March 27, 2015
A productive day at work is seeing about 50-55 patients in eight hours. All type of patients, whether it's a two weeks follow-up, six weeks, wound care dressings, minor wound care procedures, such as applegraft, sclerotherapy, veinwaves, and etc.. I love to say I's a master when it comes to a wound care dressings. I work with some great co-workers. We all get along and work as team to make sure there is a good patients flow within the vascular department.. My most enjoyable moment in my department is seeing how happy the patients leaves our department satisfying with some great Surgeon, Nurse Practitioner, Administrators, Medical Assistants that really cares about their health and safety.
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
