    I worked at Yale-New Haven Hospital full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Medical Interpreter in New Haven, CT

    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 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 worked at Yale-New Haven Hospital

    Pros

    Pay, benefits , vacation, feeling of purpose - overall, a good place to work and advance - if you play politics.

    Cons

    Arbitrary rules, epitome of corporate environment , lack of connection from employees in business departments and their role in patient care

    Pros

    Supportive management on my unit.

    Cliques and the "nurses eat their young" feeling towards new nurses.

    I worked at Yale-New Haven Hospital part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good health insurance, especially for part time employment.

    Cons

    Some PCAs did not do their job and management did not care. I felt the patients were often ignored and had to wait too long for help with essentials like using the toilet. Employees have to pay for parking. Twelve and one-half hour shifts on weekends and holidays are too much to ask of employees who are making low wages. Half-hour for lunch break is not paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Patients need to come FIRST. Parking for employees making under $30K should be free.
