Pharmacy Associate II (Former Employee) – Shrewsbury, MA – October 31, 2017
Umass Med School was a good place to work and taught me so much about working with Prior Authorizations and different requirements for different Insurance companies. It was very high-paced but I gained a lot of knowledge there while employed. I learned all the requirements for medication prior authorization for all clients throughout Massachusetts
Video/Multimedia Production Intern (Former Employee) – Worcester, MA – October 17, 2017
I interned at UMass Medical in the Emerging Professionals Summer Internship Program. It was a great experience both for networking and gaining skills in a field you may consider entering. The area is extremely pleasant and you are working on a very major campus in New England.
Research Associate I (Current Employee) – Worcester, MA – July 12, 2017
Have to figure everything out on your own. HR is useless, but certain individuals are very helpful. Experiments are run last minute and expected to have no mistakes with the small amount of preparation.

Integrated Care Programs Project Manager (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – May 8, 2017
Some of the pros: Overall good place to work. Work culture: Open to different people; Immigrants are welcome. Good work and life balance. Cons: Most of the positions are located in Worcester. (But some positions are located downtown Boston.)
The talent group is not very fast and you jump through a lot of hoops. There are at least 5/6 separate interviews and when you have to leave your current job during lunch breaks to go for them it is a lot of personal time.You are told one thing during interview and it is a sugarcoated facade. I arrived and felt lost. No computer for days. No access. Had to push for access for many things. It was completely disorganized. There is a lot of favoritism. Lots of layoffs and shifting transfers, which again means a lot of lost job. In the end I left a job I had worked at for years to be laid off.
benefits are good (mostly), pay is on par, pension would be good if you stay, some of the people
medical benefits are costly and confusing, no training, terrible mgt response to questions, terrible technology and IT--tickets for tickets, favoritism

Engineer Building Systems Operator/ Control Tech (Current Employee) – Worcester, MA – December 24, 2016
Mid Management is a bit old school. My position is very demanding as I am understaffed. Equipment is antiquated and inefficient but aesthetics overrules efficiency I guess. There are many good workers there with great attitudes but are frustrated by the ones who can't do there jobs but are only there because they are friends with someone high up like the director or a Senator, typical in many institutions.
