The majority of Children's Hospital employee's are employed with Children's Hospital for at least one, two or more decades. People enjoy working at Children's Hospital because of our brand and it is taken very seriously "Until Every Child Is Well".

A great, friendly, easy-going place to work
Analytical Chemist (Former Employee), Boston, MAJuly 7, 2015
Pros: Flexible schedule, enjoyable work, few meetings
Cons: Lots of troubleshooting
Boston Children's Hospital is a great place to work. Everyone there is extremely nice and a pleasure to work with. The work is challenging and rewarding. I strengthened my problem solving skills by working independently, and made a lot of connections with fellow lab workers. The management is also extremely friendly and easy-going, especially for an organization as large as Children's. My work consisted of developing analytical methods and testing samples. I was given the freedom to make my own schedule most of the time, with the responsibility of completing work in a timely manner and attending occasional meetings. The importance of the work was the most rewarding part, knowing that we were helping children.

Pros: Working for Children's Hospital in Boston
Boston Children's Hospital is number 1 in the country.
The hardest part of the job seeing very sick kids from all around the world. They come to Children's because we are the best in all areas
of the hospital. Seeing the doctors working with these kids and caring for them like there own. Everyone is friendly and positive attitude. It makes me feel good and who i am and appreciate things in life.

Sr. Administrative Associate (Former Employee), Boston, MAMay 20, 2015
Pros: Good Benefits
Cons: Treats employees like they are not people
Unfair and unprofessional, they go by what others say and not by the preformance of the new employee. A very he or she say situation. Leaves people looking bad in the eyes of others.

Great co-workers, but high-stress environment
Ambulatory Services Representative II (Current Employee), Boston, MAApril 29, 2015
Pros: Many office parties and free food & coffee, great co-workers
Cons: poor management, high turnover rate
Many of the coworkers are great to work with. The team has a great unified culture and most make an effort to smile and maintain a high level of positive energy. Parties are frequently hosted for other staff members and physicians at the hospitals expense. Great autonomous team spirit.

However, this is a fast-paced, high-stress environment with poor management that cycled between hands-off and micromanaging. Supervisors never have your back when stressful situations arise. Physicians never accept responsibility for errors and the heat falls squarely on the employees. Work is given with little – more... practical training on how to implement it. More work keeps piling on endlessly and employees are expected to stay late to finish a never ending list of duties without overtime pay. Workers are treated as robots rather than human beings. Focus claims to be on teamwork, but workers are frequently undervalued and little respect and consideration is given to individual needs causing workers to be pitted against each other when called to account. Small breaks throughout the day are frowned upon as one is expected to work until burning out. Little to no opportunity for advancement.

Definitely not a place for long-term employment – less

Great hospital with below average pay for non-clinical employees
Credentialing Specialist (Former Employee), Boston, MAApril 29, 2015
Pros: environment, co-workers, best practices
Cons: pay
Boston Children's Hospital offered a great working enviroment at a state of the art pediatric hospital. There is much to learn and plenty of intelligent people to learn from.

There are a reasonable amount of opportunities for professional growth but you will most likely have to change departments.

Salary is definitely on the lower (maybe lowest) when compared to other hospitals in the longwood medical area. With that said, matching 403b (up to 5%) is a positive but is not vested until a tenure of 3 years.

Overall great hospital to work for, but needs to pay non-clinical employees more to increase retention

Milieu Counselor II (Current Employee), Boston, MAApril 14, 2015
There's a reason why I have stayed at Children's Hospital for as long as I have. I enjoy working in an environment that allows both personal and professional growth. I am hoping to continue to work within the hospital as a social worker upon my graduation in May 2015.

The team might not know what they want out of you.
Needs might change too quickly, work - life balance gets difficult
Higher positions should have a clearer picture
