LIfe appears great outside of IS
Manager (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – January 4, 2019
Most reviews I read about Partners HealthCare suggest a great work place, but it is anything but if you work within Information Services. It would be great if ratings on these sites could accommodate for department based ratings so users could better understand the potential challenges they are stepping into.
As for IS, there is a striking lack of direction, unified goals or consistency across IS leadership. Most employees primary goal is avoiding management to avoid assuming ownership where the appropriate parties are not being held responsible, or just to avoid being spoken down to in general.
This is now a section of the organization that lacks any accountability for decisions, consistently appears to be in a budget freeze to fund questionable vendor engagements and provides very little growth or investment in its own staff. Steer clear.
Work from home opportunities, job security, health benefits, opportunity to help clinical environments
Lack of clear strategy, Minimal Growth Opportunity, Salaries are not market competitive, zero accountability
