Occupational Therapist (Former Employee) – Concord, MA – December 1, 2017
I loved my time at Emerson! My coworkers were great, and my manager was super flexible when it came to time off and scheduling - I was able to adjust my hours from 8:00-4:30 to 9:00-5:30 to 8:00-6:30 (four 10s), and my direct supervisor was extremely accommodating of last-minute time-off requests. One of the benefits was a free massage every year, which was great. The cafeteria served great food and was reasonably priced for employees. Emerson is still an independent community hospital, not under anyone else's umbrella. It has an excellent reputation in the community and is well-supported by the community. The hospital could not function without its volunteer program, and I've heard that kids have to get onto the wait list to volunteer in the summers a couple in advance.
Tight-knit community, small hospital, flexible hours, friendly cohesive staff
