Ophthalmic Technician (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – December 6, 2018
This is a good place to learn but if you want to grow you have to leave. If you want to make more money, you also have to leave. Not much room for advancement. Work with a great group of people, but morale is low.
Administrative Assistant, Trauma Division (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – October 9, 2018
on a typical day we have cases to review, patient clinic scheduling, organizing calendars, setup meetings, keep logs on the discharged patients, attend phone calls to assist patients. I learned a lot of new keys to organizing, prioritizing, managing office, schedule surgeries, work ethics on advance level. The hardest part of the job is the nature of the department. With unpredictable day at work, sometimes can require multitasking and prioritizing the patients and their needs. The most rewarding part of the job is to be able to provide assistant to the physicians and the patients which made me feel I had some contribution to the patients well being.
Physician Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 19, 2018
Great staff. Extremely dedicated to the patients. As a patient I loved Tufts and would recommend the medical center for a multitude of diseases. As an employee there was plenty of collaboration. Senior leadership very approachable and always willing to listen.
Tufts leadership tend to raise people up through the system. Start with a floor nurse and keep piling on responsibilities until that person is doing twice the work, but with no or very little increase in pay-maybe a new title too.
Accountant (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – August 29, 2018
The Finance team at Tufts needs restructuring. There is no room for growth and upper management is not open to change. The processes are so old and really need to be updated. Upper management does not recognize you unless you're a manager or "senior" accountant. Everybody else is just a "body in a seat". Honestly if you're looking for career growth and opportunity DO NOT choose Tufts!
No room for advancement. No recognition unless you're a senior
Human Resources Coordinator (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 27, 2018
The workplace culture can sometimes be difficult to navigate. a typical day at work may be frustrating. However, I have learned a lot at my meany years working at Tufts. For instance, it is where I gained a lot of my professional skills. and more extroverted. The most enjoyable parts of the job was bonding with some of the colleagues and finding new ways to deal with difficult situations.
Very little communication. Office was in the basement located under the ER.
Administrative Assistant-ED (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 26, 2018
I didn't feel the job was what I expected. If I had seen the job description online while applying, I would not have taken it. When I was called in for an interview, the job I originally applied for had been filled and the position was offered to me at the time. I accepted it on the strength that it would be a good fit but it turned out to be something other than that.
Public Safety Officer (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – August 15, 2018
Tufts Medical Center Public Safety does a fine job upholding and maintaining hospital policy. We protect patients and staff every day and night, 24/7 and if asked, many staff members and patients would agree that we do our job very well.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 13, 2018
My condolences workers were my second family. We took very good care of our patients and they loved us for it.They always rewarded us with meals.I love working at tufts.I took care of the patients like if they were my mom or dad.I even would comfort them before and after their surgery.
Every day we had free food from Doctors or patients.
Staff Nurse I (Former Employee) – Boston, MA 02111 – July 30, 2018
It was a great starting job. I learned a great deal here and as a new nurse, I had great guidance on many things, including time management, organization, as well as to better my nursing assessments with various patient population. The people who took me under their wings made a great difference in my life in general which I will forever take with me.
