General Surgery EMR Intern (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – November 28, 2016
even though this is a very intense job and not everyone is cut out for it, I would have to say it has been the best experience in terms of a job that I have ever received. I learned a lot in terms of what I want to do in the future and just being able to help all those kids was great.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – November 7, 2016
Being a security officer at Boston children's hospital is sort of a difficult job. We must always make sure that everyone and everything is safe around the hospital. I learned the ability to work well under pressure and in a fast pace. My co-workers are very helpful and respectful towards one another and we make sure to assist when someone is calling for back up on a situation. The hardest part of the job would be restraining children or dealing with a patient that is under control, there is possibility of getting hurt at this job and it is important to be able to handle anger/aggression. The reason I decided to become a security officer was because it was in a hospital and my real goal is to become a nurse in the future or start as nursing assistant.
Hospital setting, low/no cost in lunches, overtime
Not much benefits, mistreated sometimes from others(patients/families)
Neurobiology Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 16, 2016
Each lab has its own culture. My PI expected a high rate of work. The hardest part of the job was the lack of human interaction, and the odd work hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was lab meetings with great minds in healthcare.
Prestigious hospital, employee benefits
worked far longer than 8 hour days, work on weekends
Medical Technologist I (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 3, 2016
typical days start with maintenance before running patient samples. If there are any problems you are supposed to first see the tech in charge of your area, then if not resolved the technical supervisor, whom doesn't think it worth the time to step out of the office. Co workers are amazing and they are the reason people stay for any length of time.
amazing co workers, name recognition, good benefits
Program Coordinator I (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – July 20, 2016
-doctors are great and respectful of staff -room to grow -lean six sigma training provided by hospital -most enjoyable part of the job is knowing you are helping patients and optimizing their care, even as admin staff
great benefits/earned time
coworkers are stressed and tend to take it out on each other (typical hospital environment, but this type of attitude can reduce moral and productivity)
Support Staff (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – July 14, 2016
Certain people here are very good to work with and you can learn a lot from them but the truth is when it comes down to it if you are looking for a place that really cares about the employees especially those in Support Services that are non-clinical this is not the place for you upper management doesn't care about people as much as they should from what I've learned there is a very high turnover rate and it's understandably so.
The only way to make any real money there is to work nights weekends and holidays on top of regular shifts which will sacrifice your time to your family friends and outside obligations

Billing Coordinator/ Referral Specialist (Current Employee) – Waltham, MA – June 22, 2016
I really loved working for Children's hospital. I only left this position for growth. The management was fair and understanding. The treatment was across the board fair. They treated employees with respect and included everyone in their parties.
