Political and unionized

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
Presque Isle, ME

I have been working at Aroostook Medical Center part-time for more than 5 years

ProsIt is a business with jobs available that have benefits. Considering how the economy is today it is rare to have that option.

ConsThe pay is below average, the nurses have to join the union and pay union dues, therefore, nurses are paying money to the union to make less money. The staff is not very friendly.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay increase for nurses. Get rid of the union. Train staff to treat patients and other staff members the meaning of friendliness. Drug testing needs to be done on all staff prior to hiring.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Least physician and nurse friendly place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Aroostook Medical Center full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThere are exceptionally good nursing staff and physicians.

ConsIncompetent and top heavy administration; physician unfriendly atmosphere which has led to the exodus of good surgeons and physician. Nurses are unhappy as well; the work load on nurses are heavy.

Advice to Senior ManagementUse common sense policy. Find out from employee why they are unhappy. One does not need to hire million dollar consultant to figure out why good physicians are leaving. May be, change all upper level managers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
