Medication Courier (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – November 15, 2017
Childrens is a great place to work but you have to be dedicated. Great sense of community there and the pay is good. great benefits and perks. Its only stressful because you need to make sure the patients get what they need.
Fun and caring, your co-workers are like family, they care.

Nice team to work with, the management team will always be there to support you. Nothing negative really, except the long overnight hours. Taking care of children and provide them with the best care is the best part of working there
Research Coordinator (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – October 26, 2017
A typical day includes:record abstraction, case report development, consenting patients and data collection and entry. I learned how to respond to the IRB and develop standard of procedure documents. The workplace culture is quite young and has opportunities to meet others in the field.
Wonderful place for families and children; Great Management
Cardiology Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – October 26, 2017
Boston Children's is very busy and what you learn here, you typically do not learn anywhere else. The children here are sicker than sick and you form a bond with the children and families who have been there for months on end. The management was excellent and really cares about their employees.
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – October 22, 2017
Not an administratively effective place. Poor governance structure and too much matrixed leadership. It’s possible to grow, but not in every area. There is a lot of dual work happening and it starts at the top and trickles down until an exciting project looses steam or deflates. Too many committees and not enough change control and true governance. You can learn a lot if you push your job description, but hitting a wall will happen if you are ambitious and craving a productive environment For more than a few years.
Many good and well intentioned employees
Lack of governance makes work slow and often pointless
Finance Manager (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – October 19, 2017
Safety and Quality top notch. Secondary duties do not get as much care and feeding. Power is not very distributed and communication travels downward for the most part. The people are great though, giving their all so that children get well.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – October 17, 2017
I was able to dip my feet into the world of research in the hospital environment. The most enjoyable part is knowing that the research I had done for Boston Childrens aided in better overall healthcare.
IT Compliance Manager/Cyber Security Analyst (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – October 3, 2017
This place gave me a chance just out of the Air Force. They are all about trying to help transferring veterans and also helping career growth. It has good pace to understand roles and relationships throughout the organization.
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – September 27, 2017
In my particular research lab, there was terrible management, a cut-throat mentality, lack of gender equality, poor payment, unprofessional conduct, and a really unhealthy culture. This does not reflect the overall culture at Boston Children's Hospital, but I would not highly recommend it for researchers.
Caring and devoted to the medical care and development of children
OR Materials Technician (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 20, 2017
Children's Hospital Boston, was a great place to work, my only problem was the section that I worked for didn't have light duty, when I was pregnant they could not give me a desk job, so I had to resign my position. The work was fairly easy as long as you paid attention. The most enjoyable part of the job was, interacting with some of the staff that I worked with or came in contact with at the hospital. Some of the best people work at children's hospital. What can you say about management, my job was to work and that's what I focused on. I wish management would have fought to find a position that I could have filled until I went on maternity leave. I would still be employed at the hospital.
Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 14, 2017
I started my ultrasound career at Children's and have always enjoyed being a team member there. Excellent care is given to the greatest population there is. It is a rewarding place to be and work. The relationships I have made there have lasted a lifetime.
