    Great learning opportunities. The benefits are pretty good.

    I worked at Yale-New Haven Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Health insurance, retirement plan, tuition reimbursement, competitive pay

    Cons

    Can't always use PTO, not all management listens to employee suggestions, communication is poor from mid-level management, inflexible work schedules (depending on department)

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of three-minute rule for tardiness and start focusing on quality of work produced. Leave punctuality issues up to individual managers. Communicate more with employees when their job locations are threatened; share overall organizational goals more frequently. Stop opening more sites before optimizing the ones you already have.

    Pros

    Many nursing leaders to provide support to bedside RNs

    Cons

    Very top heavy. Administration has no clue re: details on units and how to truly support and retain staff.

    Advice to Management

    Build trust and relationships. Be FAIR and CONSISTENT, and if you say you are going to be transparent, then create an environment where questions and feelings are encouraged.

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to learn and practice.

    Cons

    Too big and beaurucratic if you are looking to work for a team or become part of a family while working.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of all your employees and not just the few (e.g. doctors and nurses). Everyone makes a difference.

    I have been working at Yale-New Haven Hospital full-time (Less than a 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 Management

    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.
