    I have been working at Children's Hospital Boston as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The leadership encourages individuality, independence and trust.

    Cons

    The building could use a major renovation. Computer hardware, cubicles, interior design feels like an elementary school from the 1980's, extremely outdated. Lacking sunlight from outside induces subtle feelings of claustrophobia.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In addition to the 'welcome new staff member' email, consider showing the new hire around the office space and formally introducing them to staff outside of the team that would serve as a valuable resource to them. Making this effort should demonstrate the importance of relationship building and help the new hire feel comfortable in the new environment.

    I worked at Children's Hospital Boston as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Incredible opportunity to work with physicians, researcher, and scholars at the tops of their fields on new ideas and innovative treatments. Some of the best care in the world.

    Cons

    Because it is such a leader in care and research, you must be on your toes. Be ready to accept demanding challenges, but they are so rewarding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The hospital does a good job of seeming like a family rather than a bureaucracy, but that feel of an institution still creeps in at points.
