Current Employee - Network Administrator in Portland, ME

I have been working at Maine Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Portland area is a fun place to live and work under the right conditions , great local beaches

Cons

Old world IS management take nepotism to the max, real workers continue to resign, incredible stress, burnout ongoing, contributing to a steady flow of quality worker resignations. New senior management brought in does little more than intimidate, legacy management excels at maintaining
Status quo. Inexperiencedbig talking contractors are praised, taking advantage of minimal oversight adding little.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Anyone can be a stern dictator, it's not helping us , try treating us as valued employees
"real workers" are leaving and the small local talent
Pool won't provide experience required for future success, you need to stop this
Outsource IS management replacing it with "Experienced IS Management Professionals"
Review your highly valued contractors poor track records at other hospitals
Investigate historical managers hiring their friends
Stop the clicks
Review Stewart Healthcares IS Exec resumes
And most importantly, nurses who fail at nursing are not automatically

    Current Employee - Mid Level Manager in Portland, ME

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

    Pros

    Front line staff are world class and truly care about the patients.

    Cons

    Disconnected leadership with a lack of strategic vision. And if they have vision they have little experience in developing and managing an operational plan. This is evident in their heavy use of consultants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out from you close door offices and get out onto the units and see the problems and act on what you see. Stop with the talking and lets see some action and not more consultants.
