Pros: unity
During my career at Boston Medical I meet people from different back grounds and living environments, As time went by you get to build a relationship with patients, visitors, overtime one get the opportunity to learn individuals history and challenges through conversation. I must say that this experience has taught me how to understand and reach out – more... to various individuals and read body language.

Office Assistant (Former Employee), Boston, MAFebruary 3, 2014
A typical day consisted of attended to students, answering the phone and filing applications. My co-workers were students, higher management and professors. The office had a very friendly atmosphere and little hierarchy. This job was always enjoyable to come too and everyone was very pleasant to be around.

Definitely, not a good place!
Analyst (Former Employee), BostonNovember 12, 2013
Pros: retirement plans
Cons: everything else sucks. cant trust anyone in it.
I used to work there and loved it until the Centralization project. The IT Director is clueless on how to run an IT department. They only hire friends regardless of experience. The IT management and VP are clueless and they don't care about their employees. They lie, are very immoral and are not ethical people..
