    I have been working at Eastern Maine Medical Center full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very Competitive pay and benefits, good employees to work with for the most part. If you are a traditioinalist, this is a great place for you.

    Cons

    Does not tolerate alternative approaches to achieve same goal. Their way or the highway. Some bosses just looking to move up at others expense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider less than rosy forecasts so you do not over-expand, commit organization to large financial outlays then have to cut back (including staff) to pay those bills.

    Bennefits could have better coverage for employees, and pay could be better for the amount of experience someone has. and more employee appriecation would be better.( some dont get enough credit!)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn new things, and move to new positions. One of the larger, financially stable companies in the area, which makes it a secure place to work.

    Cons

    Annoying nurses union, which seems to be fleecing its members. Senior management unable to accomplish "big vision" goals in a timely manner.

    I have been working at Eastern Maine Medical Center

    Pros

    Vacation/holiday/sick pay, plenty of opportunity once you're in the door, decent hours, allowed to suggest and implement process improvements. There are many good managers and you're lucky if you work for one.

    Cons

    Many of Senior management is not in touch with employees. No pay raises due to decreasing reimbursement from payors. Vacation accrual was decreased for managers last year Continually being asked to do more with less......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach and be a role model - "Caring Behaviors" and "Patient First" are preached but not practiced. Listen to what your employees are really saying. Reward the high performers or they will be the first to leave when the economy turns around.
