    I worked at Emerson Hospital part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Emerson Hospital has a positive environment, incentives, moral boosts, friendly co-workers and management, awesome community outreach, good food

    Cons

    Not too much room for growth in my dept (nutrition), parking off site, never got promotion, pay rate, people (patients) from Concord can be difficult (snobby). Training was somewhat of a disaster. People would do their jobs consistently wrong and there were no repercussions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay rates need to be fair. Experience should play into pay, and I was in my early twenties when I started here and received WAY LESS pay - even though I had more education/experience that older employees. I felt like I was discriminated because of my age. I felt it was not fair and aggravating. Also, if an employee is doing their job wrong (70% of the time is wrong) THE OTHER EMPLOYEES PICK UP THE MESS. It is just not fair. I never called out sick, always corrected my mistakes and I made significantly less that many other employees.

    I have been working at Emerson Hospital full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The work environment is so positive! Whether you're passing a nurse in the hall, a Sr. Leader, physician, volunteer or cafe worker, everyone gets a friendly acknowledgement. I've always felt so welcomed at Emerson in the four years that I have been employed. The CEO hosts many employee appreciation events, town hall meetings and luncheons so that all of the staff can be informed on the latest hospital news which is very important to the success of the hospital. We are never left in the dark here and that is what I enjoy most about this hospital. If the CEO has news, she will be honest and upfront right away. Her open door policy is appreciated, as I am a nurse here at the hospital and cannot always make luncheons or town hall meetings, so I feel welcome to stop by her office anytime and ask her what I missed or send her an email.

    Cons

    I haven't been faced with any cons during the four years that I have been employed here. Emerson is all about being a team!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work! We have many strong Sr. Leaders and Management at this hopsital that the staff look up to.

    I have been working at Emerson Hospital full-time

    Pros

    I am so fortunate to work for such a great organization. It is rare to have an organization on all levels, from the CEO to the employees, truly committed in creating a friendly, engaging, and collaborative culture while providing high quality health care.

    This positive culture is evident in the efforts the CEO and leadership team make... They strive to make Emerson a wonderful place by being great communicators to all, actively soliciting feedback from employees, and through employee recognition events.

    Cons

    Continue to make renovations to the remaining parts of the hospital.... The renovations that have already been made look great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.... Continue to make Emerson a great place to work.

    I have been working at Emerson Hospital as a contractor for more than 10 years

    Pros

    This is a top notch Boston quality healthcare environment, but a much easier location to access outside of the city and a very enjoyable place to work. They are continually canvasing patient needs and on many levels cater to what the marketplace is doing to change how healthcare is delivered.

    Cons

    I've not experienced any negatives in my 12 plus years of working for several departments. The compensation/benefits area is not applicable in my role as an independent contracted employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire the best, it shows - I've found respect on all levels of hospital administration, medical staff, current and courtesy. People enjoy being a part of this hospital based on all my experience over the years.

    I have been working at Emerson Hospital as a contractor for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Respectful, friendly, compassionate co-workers and a team atmosphere make it feel like family. Management works hard and people care about doing their very best.

    Cons

    Staffing is thin where employees who have left haven't been replaced.

    As a contractor, "Compensation & Benefits" and "Work/Life Balance" don't really apply, so the neutral rating is really a "does not apply"--not a rating one way or the other.

    I have been working at Emerson Hospital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Emerson is a very positive place to work. Everyone works together as a team--management and staff alike. The facilities are newly renovated so the work environment is top notch. Not only is it nice-- you have all the supplies you need to do the job.

    Cons

    Newer employees have to park at an off-site location which can be a pain--especially in the colder temperatures. The shuttle drivers are all very nice...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep giving us what we need to do our job!!

    I have been working at Emerson Hospital

    Pros

    Best place I've ever worked. Excellent communication from supervisor and senior management. CEO even knows all the employees by first name! Recently went on a leave and HR was excellent from the beginning to end. Lots of fun employee activities and even a summer BBQ at Kimball Farm.

    I hope to work here for many years.

    Cons

    Continued uncertainty in healthcare and hospitals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and thank you for the Christmas gift.
