[QUOTE]left dana farber after a manager told me during a meeting in a not so nice way "I'm sending you a message"....(she was a poor manager with bad management skills, etc.) I decided it was enough and left that night and didn't return. Guess she got my message. Boy she was red faced when the annoucement was made that I had quit...she knew why...

Ah, good 'ol DFCI for top-notch workplace character!
I had two situations at DFCI in my 5yrs there with people that were 'in charge of me' and used all kinds of quality management skills such as guilt, manipulation, lies and power-plays. It was very sad, very disappointing, esp given I was a healthcare provider there (though not a doctor).
And HR? Useless--essentially sat there and made it clear there was nothing they could or would do--the docs there call the shots, despite bad behavior.
In my years as a professional, I have never been so disheartened or felt so insulted as an employee.
I, too, had a final meeting where I was being treated so manipulatively and I stood up and said 'I think I'm all set here'--resigned that day.
It is very sad that healthcare is like this, that people who use low-level management 'skills' (mind you, no MBA among any of them) to manage providers is scary.
I wouldn't recommend DFCI to anyone for a healthy workplace environment.
Unless your the lead dog there, you are totally disposable and have no voice whatsoever.
If you're ok w/ that, not a bad place to work, but any self-respecting person would never allow themselves to be subject to this type of treatment.
