very nice group of people, but managed very poorly
Associate Professor, Dept of Pediatrics (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 7, 2017
The hospital has a very conservative, "we-have-done-it-this-way-for-40-years" attitude that resists any degree of change. The hardest part of the job is the expectation that you should complete a task without group support. The most enjoyable part of the job is the friendliness of the people.
Animal Caretaker (Former Employee) – Grafton, MA – August 9, 2017
So much more than a normal barn job. Much more rewarding being involved in assisting in the care of various patients and getting to see them go home. As far as the negative review.... Everyone always thinks they should be paid more etc (especially if the job doesnt end up being a good fit for them) the benefits are good and you can learn allot. Also the reviews aren't necessarily from the LAH as any reviews for tufts come up
Finance & Human Resource Specialist (Former Employee) – Medford, MA – August 7, 2017
I've hesitated to write this review. I left Tufts in March, and didn't want to this then. I found the students a joy to be around but this isn't a place for advancement. They seem to be going through and idenity crisis in figure what roles really are in the descriptions. I find that they hire you for one thing and the job ends up being so much more. This puts you in odds with management, because you'll want to be compensate for the extra to your role.
Every day friendly place to work
They want more work without more pay and no advancement
Director (Current Employee) – Medford, MA – June 23, 2017
Overall a good place to work. A little challenging to get to the Medford campus. Long days, work life balance isn't as advertised. Generally good people but lately there have been many people leaving. Compensation is not as competitive as other institutions/companies.
Veterinary Technician (Current Employee) – North Grafton, MA – March 15, 2017
A typical day is working on the clinic floor and assisting the veterinarian with daily appointments and procedures. I've learned all aspects of a hospital environment. The management is lacking proper training and applicable skills. The hardest part of the job is working with some people who are non compliant with their job description and lack of discipline. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with animals and the people who love them.
no weekend work required
lack of coverage for breaks and low employee retention
