    Former Employee - IS Project Manager in Portland, ME
    Former Employee - IS Project Manager in Portland, ME

    I worked at Maine Medical Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Small Minority younger clinical staff management

    Cons

    IS is a time capsule of soviet management style. Extreme unqualified managers maintain "power" through their old boy, their focus is big talk,not hospital success.
    Honest empolyees are punished and driven away, nepotism, deficient management practices are the norm, google Forbes and IT Healthcare magizines for the Maine Med Epic
    cost overruns. IS management hired unqualified consultants also contributing to the projects costs and failures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    study real hospital management, then actually "work" at a real hospital IS department educating yourselves about how succesful IT should function and treat employees, intimidation is not a core value of any great organization.

    Talk more and do less and strive for mediocre executive and senior leadership.

    Former Employee - Quality Project Manager in Portland, ME
    Former Employee - Quality Project Manager in Portland, ME

    I worked at Maine Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The staff that has direct patient care is top notch and truly advocates for the patients. I've worked for a highly regarded Boston area hospital and would choose MMC's staff in a heart beat.

    Cons

    Executive and senior leadership have a vision but no real understanding how to operationalize a plan. Major disconnect with the front line staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop blaming the current state of healthcare with reduced patient volumes and decreased revenues from the state and insurance companies. Reducing head count will never get you there financially, or spending valuable capital on consultants. Put a strategy together, operationalize it, have true alignment throughout the organization and hold people accountable.
