Not a pleasant work environment
Anonymous Employee Leaving Partners. (Current Employee) – Somerville, MA – September 12, 2016
The workplace culture is horrible. It is not what it used to be. Employee satisfaction results have shown that the employees are miserable here and it is only getting worse. Partners is in the bottom 25th percentile in employee satisfaction, nationally. If you are looking for a healthy workplace culture, this is not the place for you. Hospital politics make it difficult to enjoy being at work. Nothing gets done around here because there are too many decision makers that cannot agree with each other so a lot of your hard work gets thrown out the window. Also be prepared to get thrown under the bus. Employees live in fear that they will lose their jobs because management makes them feel this way. The biggest complaint from employees here is the pay. Salaries are below market. They have not been adjusted in nearly a decade. Also, promotions are not given based on hard work. Promotions are given only after someone leaves. In other cases, they'll "promote" you by changing your title but with no pay raise. This is a tactic they use to retain their employees but they are full of empty promises. Truth is, they don't have the budget for anything and won't for the next several years so don't expect much.
Politics, Poor management, No pay raises, Stressful
