Mass. General scores on two workplace lists

Massachusetts General Hospital has landed on two lists of best places to work.

One is the Working Mother magazine's 100 Best Companies, which considers compensation, child-care and flexibility programs, and leave policies. Harvard University also made the non-ranked list, along with Arnold Worldwide, The Boston Consulting Group and Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance.

The other list is AARP's ranking of Best Employers for Workers Over 50, where it came in 10th. No other Massachusetts-based company made the list of 50 workplaces. The AARP considered recruiting practices; opportunities for development; and work options, such as flexible scheduling, job sharing, and phased retirement, in addition to health and retiree benefits.
