Busy and fast-paced. Always room to grow and learn.
Ancillary Registration Services Representative (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – October 10, 2017
BMC has a very large campus with several buildings for clerical, clinical out-patient, and in-patient facilities. A typical day in radiology is extremely busy and fast paced. There is always room for growth and job postings are constant. The benefits are definitely one of the more positive aspects of the job. There is always something new to learn.

Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Massachusetts – October 4, 2017
It was a research assistant position. I recruited patients for a study. I learnt how to relate with a people with different cultures and perspective to life, The hardest part of the job is when patients refuse to participate in my research and the best part is when patients agree to be a part of the study.

Poor clinic management outpatient clinic is scheduled poorly management is not willing to stand up for employees stressful most enjoyable part of the day is meeting new patients and seeing returning patients improvement

Working in supply chain at Boston Medical Center is rewarding, and you learn an incredible amount about the medical industry. The rewarding aspect is that you actually affect patients lives in a positive, albeit indirect way. The flip side to that coin however, is that patient care looms large over everything you do, and makes the job very stressful. Add in the fact that management in the supply chain department is very poor, and it becomes very easy to get burnt out or disenchanted with your job/career. The benefits and special perks however are amazing. Easily the best I've ever had with any position.
Unit Coordinator (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 30, 2017
At typical day at work I answer the phones and direct calls to the appropriate place, I assist the doctors , nurses, and patients with their needs. I assist the visitors with their needs, I enter all new patients into the computer and discharge them as well. I order supplies that are needed. I maintain all patient charts. As a member of Boston Medical Center I learned how to be a productive member of the team in a fast passed environment.
Ambulatory Service Representative II (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – August 29, 2017
Boston Medical Center is a wonderful place to work. However, there is a lack of management and favoritism in most departments. The pay is reasonable. The benefits are great and tuition reimbursements are great. Working with patients has never been an issue working at BMC, only management. No matter how much work you put in your never recognized for it. If you would like to learn anything it is best to ask your coworkers instead of your supervisor.
Ambulatory Service Representative I (Current Employee) – Boston, MA 02109 – August 21, 2017
A very diverse company to help every individual with direct patient care with no exceptions. I meet a lot of people on a daily basis and I love helping people from checking them in to there appointment and checking them out so they can get back home safely.
Social Services (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 14, 2017
Great colleagues across departments with opportunities for teamwork that can really make a positive impact on patients' lives. However, the stressful nature of the job is made unbearable by TERRIBLE management structures. Across the board, department heads, supervisors, etc. are promoted or hired in to positions they have NO training for based on seniority or prestige - and that means their ability to manage personnel or collaborate across departments is not only limited, but sometimes detrimental. There is too much work to get done in too little time, and if you fail to meet out-of-touch expectations you WILL be reprimanded and threatened.
The benefits are great, the pay is solid, but it's not worth feeling like your neck is always on the chopping block for minimal, human mistakes and knowing that your management chain feels you are expendable.
