Financial Coordinator (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – October 28, 2018
I was very excited to begin working for Boston IVF. I spent 6 weeks away from my family only home on weekends so I could go to “training” the training was me sitting watching someone else work. After being on my own for roughly 8 weeks I was called into the regional managers office and let go with zero warning. I had never called in never been late , never received a work review or verbal/written warning of any kind for any reason. When i reached out to HR, my supervisor who was located in another state and the CFO who hired me I received no response from anyone. Very unprofessional. After I was gone i was told by others that they aren’t replacing my position. So it seems to me the company was trying to cut costs by cutting my position. I would have more respect for them if they were up front about it.

This is a great overall place to work. I think that management really cares about their employees and it shows. Who still has a holiday party anymore?!?!? We do! With amazing gifts given away and lunches throughout the year. Employee summer flings are fun. Bonuses at the end of the year are an awesome surprise. The only thing is that the departments are a little separate and don't spend too much time together. More focus on making the company one cohesive team - rather than every man or woman for themselves.

Probably one of the worst places to work. They favor their favorites, they treat their patients as numbers and dollar signs. The management has no respect or empathy for most of their employees or if you have a personal issue unless you are one of the "chosen ones"in their group then they will go out of their way to help you. They also only refer to their employee handbook and rules /regulations on a pick and choose basis. Some people get let go for some stuff and another one gets rewarded for doing the same thing. Most of the physicians are nice but there are ones who treat you as though you are nothing even though you are college educated and because they are a physician they are "gods".
Billing (Current Employee) – Waltham, MA – December 14, 2017
The billing department is full of great kind people. The billing manager is very kind and great to work with. The billing manager is also very fair and works very hard to make sure all work is spread as evenly between employees as possible. There are times when work can be a little overwhelming but if you speak up there is always someone who can help. Hearing all the patients stories of how this company helped them fulfill their dream of having a child is totally worth it!
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Waltham, MA – October 22, 2017
Most staff are jealous petty liars. Managers favor who lie and who are phony. Disrespectful billing dept that place is horrible. I hope they get shut down asap! Admins are phony petty. Managers are horrible, front desk liars sneaky petty.
good luck in this place. I see what this post means now, wish I had seen it sooner
Job Work/Life Balance
Poor management with little growth potential
Financial services (Former Employee) – Waltham, MA – June 19, 2016
I hope you enjoy the job you got hired for, because there is no chance for advancement. However, they are more than happy to shuffle upper management around to make sure they have a job still (for example, the former HR person has been at various times the nursing manager and embryology department manager). Most of the lower level employees are nice enough, but there is next to no accountability amongst them, as they are all too willing to pass off work. But, at least as one other commenter posted, you get either bagels or donuts every Friday. Unless you plan on using them as a stepping stone for 6-12 months, I don't recommend them.
Free bagels/donuts every Friday
Expensive benefits with little to no options, accrued PTO, little to no advancement opportunities
Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – Waltham, MA – April 25, 2016
Great company. Great people to work with. My job represented the next logical step in my currier. I always enjoyed taking on next challenges,taking my skills learned in small company and applied them to specific functions in larger firms. Identifying inter-company's transactions, creating and booking journal entries for it, was another challenge.
Accounts Payable Specialist (Current Employee) – Waltham, MA – March 25, 2016
I learned a lot working at Boston IVF. The people are always helpful and great to work with. Not only are they understanding, but they go the extra mile for each other. Working in A/P I would process high-volume invoices and prepare them for payment. The daily lockboxes and missing money were part of the job too. The most enjoyable part of the job is that fact I was always happy to be there. The hardest part of the job is when something does not match up, but in this company everyone is always happy to help.
Charge Entry/Payment poster/customer service (Former Employee) – Waltham MA – July 6, 2015
The software was very user friendly and easy to learn. Free coffee and breakfast every Friday. Colleagues in my department which consisted of 2 were not friendly which made the job hard. At times I felt I was bullied. The work itself was simple and non challenging. I enjoyed taking calls from patient's.
free breakfast every Friday
the commute entailed a lot of traffic, No flexibility in schedule, Had to work the hours they told you to
IVF Coordinator (Former Employee) – Waltham, MA – August 15, 2012
Exciting field to work, but stressful. Cutting edge in this field. Job is stressful due to turn around time in dealing with insurance and patients demands. The best time is when that pregnancy test is positive after all the hard work.
Staff Nurse & IVF COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Waltham, MA – June 3, 2012
Typically a very busy infertility practise on a daily basis. Constantly learning new information and procedures. The hardest part of the job was having to call a patient with negative pregnancy results.
you meet many nice people.
no overtime for salaried workers that frequently worked beyond 9 to 5.
Coordinator Assistant, Clerical (Former Employee) – Waltham, MA – April 2, 2012
Boston IVF was a very interesting job. I loved my job. It was always very busy and I learned a whole lot while I worked there. I also made a two person job into one. It was busy but that's what I like. As far as my co-workers there were a few good people but for the most part you had to be in a click. I was even warned. So it kind of made for a hard time working there. I believe the hardest part of the job was the co-workers and getting them to get the proper consents in on time so that the patients did not have to worry and there charts were all made up. I was use to working as a team player and that was not the case here. Most enjoyable part of the job was to know that the patients got the best care possible.
