  1. Central Maine Medical Center Employee

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Central Maine Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Feeling like you're valued, transparency between staff and executive level.

    Cons

    Corporate environment, paid time off policy is not separate for non clinical employees and you have to use it for holidays even though you're not supposed to work holidays

    I have been working at Central Maine Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Staff are highly professional and collegial at Manager levels on down. Many are very long-tenured---20+ years. Most are passionate about their jobs and eagerly offer to assist others when needed.

    Cons

    Never seems to be enough money for personnel, day to day tools and good salaries for skilled people. Workloads are heavy and increasing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the professionals you have hired. Include them in strategic and annual planning. Pay more for the best staff and hire more staff to adequately and safely manage the increasing workloads.

    Pros

    They offer reasonable health insurance plan. The starting wage is acceptable. There are some good employee discounts offered.

    Cons

    Training is minimal. Policies as put forth by Human Resources are not consistently applied at satellite offices. There are office politics involved in most offices. If a person does not 'fit' the matrix it is a very uncomfortable environment to then work within. There is no room to improve the fit once it is decided by management. Rehiring is next to impossible if you did not 'fit' at one location.

    Advice to Management

    Practice consistency throughout an office. Do not blame the office staff for an Office manager's negative job performance. Listen to the patient's regarding phone service. Listen to patients also that they want warm, personable staff not robots.

    I worked at Central Maine Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have great benefits and discounts associated with your employment. They also have a good amount of personal time.

    Cons

    It's difficult to propose anything new. It's not well received and there are a lot of office politics. Training is minimal. The pay is as minimal as possible and they do not give annual raises. There is no such thing as merit raises either.

    Advice to Management

    Need better training and need to be opened to new ideas.

    Pros

    easy atmosphere, good people,great doctors, great cafeteria! I enjoy coming to work .the night shift compliments the day shift, system runs pretty smoothly.

    Cons

    Understaffed it seems at times not a lot of advancement opportunities for techs. require you to be certified but do not compensate you for the costs to remain so.

    Advice to Management

    seems some managers apply policies to their own benefit

    Pros

    Great team of nurses. Assignments are fair and balanced. Management listens to input. Great benefits. Overall positive atmosphere.

    Cons

    Policies regarding floating and low census call are a bit lacking in fairness across the entire hospital; some units are better than others about fairness. Salary is below average but management is working on improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Nursing staff, across the board, still need to be paid more.

    Pros

    Plenty of work to do. Interact with lots of good people.

    Cons

    Management, of course. Just as things start running smoothly, management changes direction. Then there's the occasional layoffs. Then just as things start running smoothly, management changes direction.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what your employees need to succeed at their job and help them attain it.
