    Pros

    I've been working for Hartford Hospital for over 10 years and this company has undergone so many changes. We have literally grown overnight. It's amazing

    Cons

    Many benefits have been cut, especially to the pensions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff when we have issues


  2. A great place to learn and grow as a resident clinician, but clinical practice is doctor centric and a bit outdated.

    Pros

    There were plenty of opportunities to learn from the best and the brightest in academic medicine. HH truly is a teaching institution with residents integrated in nearly every aspect of the clinical process.

    Cons

    Like many larger healthcare systems, the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing. HH suffers from a large gap in understanding between operations and clinical processes.

    Advice to Management

    Management could attempt to adopt more progressive and inclusive approaches to interdisciplinary medicine.

    Pros

    This was a reasonably good place to work and some good people are still working here but many are leaving.

    Cons

    Poor management, no clear sense of direction, IT systems are in complete disarray and new hires in this area lack management and it skills

    Advice to Management

    Outsource Finance and IT departments, Complete the move to an EPIC integrated EHR and the system might have a chance to compete.

    Pros

    My direct supervisor was a true mentor--helped me immensely to grow in my field. The benefits were quite good. Most of all, the majority of the clinicians were skilled and dedicated

    Cons

    The worst aspect was the top-heavy, tone-deaf senior management (hospital administrators who had little or no clinical background). There were Office Space-like meetings to indoctrinate staff in the new corporate philosophies--"the Seven Pillars of Excellence" or some such nonsense. There was a constant mantra that feedback was welcome, yet departmental meetings were chaperoned by administrative lackeys. What staff needed was more time with patients and tools to make documentation and communication easier--instead, we got key chains with the logo "you are the key to Hartford Hospital's success!"

    Advice to Management

    Administrators should walk a couple miles in the shoes of clinicians (rather than spending lots of money on outside consultants and logos--neither of which seem to have been worth the investment). This is an institution rich in world-class health practitioners and mental health clinicians--LISTEN to them (and not via a minion/chaperone).

    Pros

    Great work ethics and hospital is located in downtown hartford

    Cons

    Located in a not-too-good part of town. Safety is an issue.

    Advice to Management

    hospital is going through a lot of remodelling - structurally and management wise. They recently merged with surrounding hospital. Management does a great job of carrying all the employees along with the renovation and various changes
