    ProsSince there aren't an abundance of jobs in the rural area they have you!
    Liked the education department

    ConsUpper management bad mouthed the CEO and The COO! All the network executives were wanting her job or thought they could do it better. Not many women in upper exec. Positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRound more and hear what your employees are saying! Access! Can't wait 2 mo. For an Ortho appointment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A sinking ship

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTight knit groups of co-workers. The normal people working here (anyone except the management, executives, and doctors) are generally good people. Health insurance benefits are a little bit better than some other companies in the area. Streck, the CEO was a very kind man, but he's on his way out, and who knows how the new guy will do.

    ConsThe policy does not protect you, it protects the Hospital and it's Doctors. HR is not your friend here, ever. Countless people that I've spoken to have been screwed over by HR themselves or have co-workers that have been. HR sees you as expendable and easily replacable, you hold no value to them. Upper management is run by the most ignorant buffoons I've ever seen. Current CEO needs to be canned, she contributes nothing at this point. Middle management is mostly Yes men/women, they are not here to help you, they are too busy protecting their own jobs to care about you. Those in power are playing the numbers game in places where it cannot be competently implemented. Fragmented departments. A lot of in-fighting. They often will outright refuse to promote from within. Like all bad companies, they are pushing the whole "Do more with less" idea to the breaking point. The entire Hospital is a revolving door. No one worth a hoot is going to stay there for long unless they have no other choice.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is no advice to give them. Upper management is so corrupt that the only way to fix it at this point would be to purge them all from their seats of power and authority and start over.

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

    Director

    Senior Director (Former Employee) Cooperstown, NY

    ProsLow performance expectations leaves plenty of time to focus on your personal life.

    ConsSenior and executive leadership vacuum. Zero planning. Decisions made as a reactionary afterthought. Finances mismanaged with little revenue cycle oversight. VP's and middle managers whose first and only leadership experience is limited to Bassett makes for a plethora of operational issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice to new CEO- spring cleaning is in order.

    Awful

    Assistant (Former Employee) Cooperstown, NY

    ProsClose knit departments
    Easy to get along with co workers
    Outreach locations boost morale of workers

    Consterrible benefits
    Bad attitude from management
    huge negative morale problem on main campus
    very low rate of pay
    do not promote from within frequently
    favoritism
    no confidentiality whatsoever
    TOP HEAVY!
    "non retaliation policy" only exists in theory here

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on making your workers happy, rather than promoting managers to higher position that are useless.

    Not a bad company depending on where you work.

    Assistant (Current Employee) Cooperstown, NY

    ProsHealth insurance benefits are dirt cheap, atmosphere is somewhat relaxed, lots of perks of employment.

    ConsDepending on the department you work in not all people share the "Bassett" values, while the heath insurance is cheap, you can only use their providers and it takes forever to get appointments and the location is often inconvenient depending on where you live. Pay is not great.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay better and hire better doctors.

    Can be a good place for professional enhancement, which will benefit the patients. Watch out for managers with agendas.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Cooperstown, NY

    ProsBeautiful location. They'll support education sometimes.

    ConsLow pay compared to other similar professions. Favoritism. Top leadership tries to improve but middle managers go unchecked. Politics interfere with staying focused on the mission. Big decisions are made without input from key stakeholders. For example, significant positions or assistants to programs are selected without input from the people responsible for the success of the programs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRead the cons above and fix them.

    A great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Cooperstown, NY

    ProsThe Cooperstown hospital is located in a pretty location, with friendly co-workers and staff that share a family vibe. Highly recommended if you can get in!

    ConsBecause of the rural setting, you will probably get to know several ignorant co-workers who endlessly badmouth anyone who is of different color, nationality or sexual preference. Plus, a large majority of employees are overweight and (of course), it's not their fault. Thankfully, the more education the employee has, the less they tend to behave like this.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management ranges from excellent to extremely poor. Some higher-ups have earned their position by simply being longtime employees, instead of possessing the qualities that is essential to good management.
