DIETARY AIDE (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 2, 2018
Brigham and Women's is a good place to work. It is important to stay in contact with your supervisor. That makes it easier for them. Sometimes people do not show up. That cases stress on everyone. The patients are depending on the staff and employees to do their jobs. When people are sick they depend on receiving the best care possible.
My role as a supervisor delt (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 6, 2018
The job duties where the same every night but the out comes where always different. The personalities you met on a daily basis is what made the job enjoyable. The hardest part of the job is when higher level individuals didn't respect the job duties.
Overall the staff was pleasant to work with

Laboratory Technician II (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 5, 2018
Most of my personal discrepancies with BWH arose from the large size of the company/hospital. It is impossible to pay adequate attention to each individual with such a large number of employees. HR department is poorly constructed and does not offer much support to employees in terms of satisfaction and career advancement.
MR Technologist (Current Employee) – Boston, MA 02201 – August 4, 2018
BWH is a good hospital with great physicians, researchers and staff. The commute is difficult and expensive but BWH provides comprehensive compensation packages and is an excellent place to grow your skills.
WIC Program Assistant (Current Employee) – Jamaica Plain, MA – August 2, 2018
A typical day at work would begin most days by coming into the office early to make sure everything is ready for our first patients, this includes walking the Nutritionist through their schedule and looking through our office scheduling system to check for any changes. I do a similar task at the end of the day, I respond to any messages in our scheduling system and walk the Nutrutionist through the plan for next day. The majority of my duties include assisting patients, both in person and on the phone I schedule their appointments and help address any issues. For example, when a patient calls with a last-minute concern, I work with the patient to find a time for them to come to the office as soon as possible. This pattern is similar most days of the week
Admissions Counselor (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – August 1, 2018
The management lacks in supporting the team that reports to them. Organization is almost non-existent in this department, there are no SOP's in place for how the positions should be performed. Training is different depending on who is doing the training. Not professional or productive.
Senior Audiovisual Technician (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – July 23, 2018
Brigham AV has taken many rolls from video creations to moving furniture. We set up for big events and run webcast. Everything I know from the job I learned on site. Working at BWH has but great but you do notice a few social classes and get treated a bit different. There are many great people who work here.
Patient Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – July 22, 2018
As a child I always dreamed of working for Brigham and Women's Hospital. I never knew what I wanted to do but it was a life long goal to get into the revolving door. Working as a nursing assistant in the float pool department was an experience within itself. I did have the opportunity to work with various patients in different departments. When it came to the management team I had I could have used improvement with the way they related to me.
Successful company that places endless effort into their employees
The way I was let go from the company wasn't the best experience.
Intake Coordinator OB/GYN (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – July 15, 2018
Hired to start working for Patient Relations; one of the most challenging positions I've worked in. I had to delegate different issues and cases to representatives of the different areas of the hospital. Some cases were very difficult and complexed and patience was essential to diffuse anger. Fortunately, we also handled compliments which balanced our work. BWH has one of the largest Patient Relations Dept of any USA hospital and I'm proud to have worked for them. I also worked for other Dept which but Patient Relations was one of my favorites. Intake at OBGYN was very intense due to the different situations and complexed medical histories of some patients. The contact with patients was the most rewarding experience of this position.
Image Service Representative (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – July 15, 2018

Practice Assistant to multiple depts. (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – July 10, 2018
Always hated being Micro Managed. They use certain employees to do their dirty work. Also in the time of desperate need for employers; they're not very supportive. I've noticed a BIG increase in a lot more YOUNGER employees which "of course" they'll pay Less to, than to an older individual WITH EXPERiENCE.
