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

Pros

Good pay. New facility will be world class. Theoretically, this is a Planetree facility,which signifies patient centered care as well as care for the caregiver.

Cons

Planetree apparently no longer pertains to employees. Units, that were once "teams," are now groups of individuals beaten down by management and who are leaving the organization rapidly. Poor morale. Very poor middle management. Sadly, this will all negatively affect patient care.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not blame hard working employees for the culture you created and destroyed. Morale is low and declining even more. This was once a great organization, but not anymore. Working for a new organization that values employees only makes one realize how deflating it was to come to work everyday at Stamford Hospital.

    I worked at Stamford Hospital full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    In theory, the hospital subscribes to the Planetree philosophy, which represents a passionate culture towards patients and employees alike. The hospital is physically growing and will be a major regional facility.

    Cons

    Poor morale which is a direct result of extremely poor management. While this was once a great place to work, employees are now leaving at a frenetic pace. Limited career ladder. Chronically short staffed, which leads to chronically unhappy employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please look at the individuals who are placed in Director position. When employees are leaving at alarming rates, this is a symptom of things flowing from the top down. Upper administration is outstanding, though middle management is horrendous and needs to be closely scrutinized.
