Does Tufts Medical Center offer sponsored degrees?

Pros

Job stability, up to date training, good benefits, with the addition of Tufts to the former Hallmark health sites we now have access to Tufts specialists in the community not just in Boston. Tuition reimbursement.

Cons

Constant policy change, little room for advancement in the outer offices, some site leads allowed to "make up their own rules". Sometimes real problems are not dealt with in a professional manor.

Advice to Management

Take a look at your company from the bottom up instead of just from the top. The "little people" are the ones on the front line with patients care and contact. Make clear paths for advancement for those who wish to do so. Don't just give the job to that one person who you know because there is a lot of talent being lost. Visit your off sites and include them in your perks. It's always nice to see that the hospital staff can get a chair massage and go to the company BBQ. The staff in my office has a combined tenor of over 75 years and none of us have ever been to the employee BBQ. I know it seems small but as far as moral goes we always feel left out.

Tuition reimbursement.

How are senior leaders perceived at Tufts Medical Center?

Pros

- Diverse staff. - Decent location. - Beautiful campus. - Competitive Salary - Young staff and young residents. - Easy access via public transportation. I want to start by recognizing the efforts put into the recruitment process. I was humbled to be offered a position at an institution that has such a rich history and strives to empower and embrace employees for their diversity and professional experience. It was my hope to do great work at TMC. However, my experience was not in line with my expectations.

Cons

- Insecure and petty team leader that uses a passive aggressive management style and has created a toxic culture that has lead to extremely high turn over. - The misalignment between duties as per the job description, interview process, and actual work performed. Was constantly performing menial tasks to "assist" the department, such as moving furniture. However, these tasks were not in the job description or served any useful purpose when considering the overwhelming amount of system issues that were within the scope of the position. - Indecisive senior leadership. Organization doesn't know where it's going as it integrates into the Wellforce system. This leads to experienced people wasting their time day after day waiting for a decision to be made and a project to kick off. During the interview process I was told that a Cerner build was on the road map for early 2019, as the weeks carried on, it became clear that no decision between Cerner or Epic had be made and no indication on when it would be made was on the horizon. As this was a primary attractor to the position I felt like a bait and switch. - Needless clutter. Rather than being provided an office, I sat in a room surrounded by antiquated technology. A treasure trove of junk, some of which decades old. Unoccupied offices are used for storing more garbage. - Possible financial constraints. Senior Leadership refuses to make the necessary purchases to FIX issues. Instead chooses to cut corners and buy cheap. Usually leading to more problems and unproductivity. -- Never given an opportunity to exit interview.

Advice to Management

Evaluate the high turnover in specific areas. It is indicative of a serious culture problem and a repudiation of the values that TMC sets forth during it's onboarding process. When four people leave the same position in two year period, a red flag is waving. Investigate why this is occuring. Don't just hire another seat warmer for six to eight months.

- Indecisive senior leadership.
