Great Hospital to work for, great enviroment, great team.
Medical Assistant II / Phlebotomist (Current Employee), Boston, MADecember 15, 2014
Pros: benefits are excellent - 1hr. lunch - weekly pay! :)
Cons: no cons - just getting tired of the cold boston weather!
My day starts with many details as to how many patients have arrived, which Doctors need assistance in any particular office surgery, how many rooms are filled, how many patients are new and need special tests to be done as new patients, do we have enough supplies? even though we stock the day before, have patients gone to x-ray? how long have they – more... been waiting in the waiting area or in rooms to plan accordingly, which medical documents do the Doctors need on each patient? are the x-rays up in every room? are all the sutures, staples, steri-strips removed on post-op's? are bloods drawn on re-seacrch or normal required labs done? ect...ect.. - I am greatful for my supervisors they appreciate the hard work and decication that I put in every day, the team I work with is a great team, we (4) help each other as needed to help the clinic run smoothly. The hardest part of my job is, when patients spiral, and become terminal, and we know that things are not going to improve...and knowing a few days later of their passing, in our Thoracic Surgery Cancer Clinic (Mesotheliom Program). The most enjoyable part of my day is when I see the smiles of our patients, when we see that they are happy, because of the great treatments and medicine, and support that we have provided, which have made them well, looking forward to their lives again... – less

Would be a nice relaxing employees loung
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Boston, MADecember 10, 2014
Pros: working for a great company
A typical day at work would start off with scanning patients information into the scanner, then I would float to the clinic and check in the patients. It was the customer service skill that I learned and worked very hard at it. The most enjoyable part of my day was helping a patient, and seeing the gratification on their faces

Busy productive workplace with great learning opportunities
Surgical Technologist (Former Employee), Boston, MANovember 1, 2014
Pros: great food, decent parking, wonderful work environment
Cons: unable to offer part-time employment when i began nursing school.
Working at Brigham and Women's hospital was a wonderful experience. The culture is excellent, and my co-workers really felt like family. The Brigham is great at supporting their employees and making everyone feel like they belong as part of the "Brigham Family". I really enjoyed the high level of difficulty and specialization involved in some of the – more... surgeries. I was given the opportunity to learn how to set up for and scrub DaVinci Robotic surgeries and took part in the development of custom packs for GU Robotic surgeries. I was also a float, so I was able to scrub in GU, GYN, and General surgery. The sheer volume of cases ensured that I was never bored and was always learning new things. – less

Great experience
Laboratory Director and Technical Director (Current Employee), Boston, MANovember 1, 2014
Pros: great science, high level expectation, heart of medical knowledge
Cons: boston is too expensive for raising kids
I worked 12 years at BWH and loved it. Greater Boston is the heart and soul of all great sciences discoveries and foster creation of new companies. However, Boston is a very expensive place to live and raise kids.

Typical Day at BPP
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee), Boston, MAOctober 10, 2014
Pros: good environment, co-workers
Cons: short breaks, poltics
A typical day here would start with opening all programs needed for the day. I then check my emails to see if anything is needed to be completed urgently. After emails I go to my patient message desk and complete those tasks. I prepare my paperwork so that I can call and complete my patient discharge calls. I call patients to see how they are feeling, – more... reconcile medications, update VNA, schedule appointments and any other tasks the patient needs for a follow-up appointment. I also manage the diabetic and hypertensive patients. – less
