● Overall
Good place if you want to work in the medical field. Need to have a lot of patience with patients and coworkers. I’ve seen interns get offered a full time position after they ended.

I always held BWH to such a high ideal and they have disappointed me. The pay was sub-par. $24 and hours for a nursing position in a crazy busy surgical department. The micromanagement is unacceptable and the lack of respect for people’s personal lives is unheard of. They promote people by WHO they know instead of WHAT they know which leads to ineffective leadership.
Pros
Doctors are fantastic and treat you like a person with respect and appreciation
Cons
Ineffective management, low pay, low morale

The employees are treacherous, you have to watch your back. They want you to work for low wages and don’t think you have a life outside of Brigham. They give a false sense of their intentions
Cons
Low moral, no pay increase

For clinical work the Brigham is an excellent learning experience. But the overall work experience is subpar at best. There is favoritism amongst departments, and tenure impacts judgement.
Pros
Learning, networking
Cons
Hours, pay, work-life balance

When I started working there management made you feel included and cared for patients and staff. Once retirement packages were offered newer management only cares about their own advancement and seem to be getting rid of staff with longevity.

There is very little managerial support. Managers do not care about their teams. Only if you are popular do they cut you some slack. If there is a conflict at work, even if you are bullied, it's your faulf, and you will be written up.
Wouldn't recommend it.

Leader ship is a joke. First priority of all management is to watch out for them selves. No future here or career advancement if that is what you are seeking. People are more driven to hold you back then then help you succeed.

Both staff and patients were friendly. Everyone was family oriented. I worked on the oncology unit so it was a tough floor. The staff did their best to make the patients and families comfortable. The best thing was to see the patients leave the hospital back to their lives
