Challenging and innovative place to workk
Clinical Social Worker (Former Employee) –  Somerville, MAOctober 9, 2018
I would recommend working at CHA. Even though it was busy, I enjoyed the challenge and the coworkers. The patients were great! Sometime management gets annoying, but that happens in many places. My direct manager was fine.

Great Place to work
Physical Therapist Assistant (Current Employee) –  Somerville, MAOctober 6, 2018
If I didn't have to relocate due to my spouse getting a new job I would never leave. Rehab is a quick paced environment however the benefits given are excellent as well as having a rehab manager who was willing to be flexible with schedules and days off

Hostile Work Environment
Mental Health Counselor (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MASeptember 20, 2018
I wouldn't recommend working here under the current "regime". In the past it was a wonderful place to work, but the current unit manager (pediatric and adolescent units) has unchecked power and she uses it vindictively. She has held multiple "interim" titles including ACNO. She has fired multiple nurses for mild (non harm to patient, staff or property), teachable moments. The MNA representation at CHA did nothing to assist them. If you want feel and be treated like you work at a for profit facility, and still pay union dues, this is your place.
Pros
Wonderful staff.
Cons
Hostile management.

Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Isanti, MNAugust 13, 2018
I was a Nursing Assistant/TMA. It was a new facility and the upper management was not certain how to take care of things. I did and overnight shift and we were responsible for more of the care of the facility rather than taking care of residents.
Pros
residents
Cons
upper management

Ob/gyn
Patient Access Representative (Current Employee) –  Somerville, MAJune 13, 2018
My typical day at work would be verifying health insurances, answering incoming calls, reaching out to patients to confirm appointments, getting referral appointments for patients, making ultrasound appointments. This clinic is a diverse clinic, what i have learned is that you don't know what is going to walk through the door. The hardest part of this job is seeing the patients deliver their babies and not seeing them anymore. the most enjoyable part is seeing the newborns walk in through the doors.

"Old boys" feel to employees that have worked there for years. Closed minded to growth. Depending on the department it can be a nice energy. Fast paced.

Manager (Current Employee) –  Malden, MAMay 24, 2018
Management Needs Work Life Balance Training

Compensation and Benefits are fine.

Too many duties for a 40 work week.

Managers are not service oriented, lack ability to train.

Staff Technologist (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAMay 21, 2018
This Hospital does a good job in caring for multicultural populations. It's not overwhelmingly busy. The protocols are easy to follow. Not a lot of different specialty procedures as at the Boston teaching hospitals.
Your work day is pretty much predictable.
Pros
Good benefits

Not enough opportunity for promotion
