Culture of intimidation
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  Crane ASCFebruary 5, 2018
BMC has changed over the years, and is not a nice place to be working anymore. The RNs are overloaded for patient care and the hospital is more interested in profits over care.
Pros
pharmacy discount
Cons
you are lucky if you get lunch, then are yelled at because you didn't take one.

Staff nurse
Staff Nurse, RN (Current Employee) –  Pittsfield, MA 01201August 3, 2017
The pay is great however there is an adversarial relationship between front line staff and management. They are also consistently extremely short staffed. It is hard to advance your career here as well.

Safe Staffing is an issue
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  Pittsfield, MAMay 12, 2017
BMC is not committed to supporting their nurses in order to provide safe care.
They have their favorite employees who they will do anything for and support them in their advancement. It isn't a fair playing field.
