Desktop Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – May 18, 2017
Your peers will light up your day, the people who work beside you will always be there for you. However management can easily turn your day into a nightmare, they do not know you nor try to put your skills to the test, they work based on assumption and will fire even the best of your team mates just cause.
Cardiology Technician / Exercise Physiologist (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – February 23, 2017
I love the people here. They are normal and always ready to help. Benefits are okay, but job security is good. Management could be better. Getting things done like maintenance can take forever. Still great place to be.
Technical Coordinator Supervisor (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – October 21, 2016
scared to go to work at times, I work with employees that have been working for the hospital for a very long time and have a lot of negative things to say about management, its so bad it seems that their unhappiness is affecting their work performance. Unhappy place

Protection Officer (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MA – May 11, 2016
Watch your back. The place is swarming with rats. The people in your own uniform, your brothers, your life line for safety. I handled ugly situations with everyone of those guys and they ratted me out on allegation. Worse of it all after my time, blood, plenty of sweat and occasional tears they betrayed me. Middle Management was looking for a reason and they got one.
Lead Qlikview Developer (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – May 8, 2016
Working here was great the first couple of years. They people are great to work with and really do want to make a difference. After a few years though, I realized that there were no opportunities for advancement and raises are given out annually to everyone based on how the hospital performs.
There is a lot of bureaucracy and trying to get anything done can be a real challenge. Everyone needs to have an opinion and even the smallest decisions have to come from the top.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MA – December 8, 2015
I really enjoyed working for MAH at their Waltham, MA location. The building was quiet and comfortable. The endocrinologist I worked for here was amazing. No drama, no extra work. It was a pleasure to work there.
Decent paying job, great for students, good place to get the basics of a hospital pharmacy
Inpatient Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – November 15, 2015
Typical work day focuses on refilling Pyxis machines on each floor, making IVs, and ensuring patient medications are on floors. Coworkers are mostly students, some of the full-time technicians are difficult to get along with and biased. Basic principle - keep to yourself, be pleasant, do your work, and nobody will have any reason to say anything bad about you.
demanding I.T. environment with patient care being paramount
Helpdesk Technician (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – November 4, 2015
A challenging place to work given the short staff and constrained budget yet its very rewarding as the small I.T. team is a very cooperative and communicative group with strong leadership. Very often doctors and nurses with varying levels of technical finesse call with urgent requests that are very effectively handled by our team with the end result being an thankful hospital staff and well cared for patients. Quite often we are presented with a teaching moment that few of us on the I.T. staff pass up, and the users are more often than not, willing to learn if there is time during their call (or later on if their day permits). Working in a fast paced non profit healthcare facility taught me how to do more with less and serve the customer humbly and quickly. Learning how to multitask and follow procedures is also one of the benefits of working at Mount Auburn Hospital. Seeing the impact your assistance ultimately has on patient care, especially in the emergency department, is a very rewarding experience. The benefits package is more than adequate and the cafeteria, while it is serving "hospital food", isn't that bad either, my only wish is that they had a gym on site.
