    Current Employee - Medical Interpreter in New Haven, CT

    I have been working at Yale-New Haven Hospital full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    As an interpreter, I love to facilitate the communication between patients and providers. The need for interpreting services exists in every department within the hospital. One has the chance to meet diverse people and help to explain medical conditions and available treatments, as well as learning new terminology very often. The schedule is not strenuous and the payment is good.

    Cons

    The department is very disorganized and does not promote the jobs around the hospital, letting these jobs be taken by phone-interpreters or freelance interpreters with more costly and less effective outcomes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring more qualified in-house interpreters; compare the costs with phone-interpreting services; allow interpreters to promote their services in the departments staying on floor and not in the office waiting for the dispatchers to give them a new assignment; open an internship for less experienced interpreters and allow them to be mentored by more experienced ones, with the possibility of being hired in the future.

    I have been working at Yale-New Haven Hospital full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very diverse, friendly atmosphere, decent benefits, location

    Cons

    Poor Mgmt, unorganized. Employees are not compensated fairly or equally.Policies are inconsistent, they make up rules as they go. They adhere to certain standards and pay scales, however within those scales compensation varies widely for all the wrong reasons. The unfairness and inequities are astonishing.

     Rarely are there opportunities for advancement unless you are in an entry level position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of focusing all of your attention on clinical areas, pay more attention to the administrative side. There are issues there as well.

    I have been working at Yale-New Haven Hospital full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Close to highways. Nice cafe.
    Interesting cases

    Cons

    Management does not respond to sexual harrassment and bullying . They have policies against this behavior but do not address the behavior. Shift favoritism blatant.
    Allow harrassment and retaliation to continue. Do not honor verbal contracts made when you are being hired.
    Management verbally abusive and not supportive. Would not recommend.
    This hospital Lies to staff and public. Poor communication between staff and upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow your mission statement and policies you set for employees.
    Listen to your employees. You have a code of conduct in the employee handbook it should be enforced for all.
