    Pros

    Lifespan has great health benefits. They provide lots of vacation time, starts at 5 weeks. They offer employee discounts from local business.

    Cons

    That are a lot if long time employees who make trying anything new or outside the box difficult. Long hours, with not enough recognition for the extra effort you may put in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge and compensate the people who sacrifice for the benefit of the company.

    I have been working at Lifespan Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some of the colleagues are nice.

    Cons

    Poor salaries...flexible scheduling is a fallacy...poor management, clueless about leadership, budgeting, or what truly goes into its hospitals..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate everyone, hire true talent and not just train what you have..why? Currently, they are all poor performers that are getting salaries for somewhat showing up..and I'm referring to your management..the staff actually has to at least show up..

    Former Employee - Medical Technologist in Providence, RI

    I worked at Lifespan Corporation part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked at The Miriam Hospital as a per diem medical technologist from 2007-2010. My supervisor and the management above were very pleasant and professional, so very UNLIKE the supervisors in my full-time job at that time....
    The department I worked in (blood bank) was well managed. They were flexible with my schedule and in return I felt I was useful and helpful to them. When there was a budget shorfallin the late 2000's, Lifespan's
    senior management took pay cuts so no one would be laid off.

    Cons

    I had a rather long commute and the pay was rather on the low side, but pay for medical technologists was low throughout that region. New England is an expensive place to live and it would have helped if med tech salaries had been higher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing great in 2010 anyway!

    I worked at Lifespan Corporation full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you can get a position at Lifespan with the unions, you have a good job. If you are a non-union member of a small department that gets no respect, you will be abused and thrown out the door.

    Cons

    Seemed like there was some awareness of work/life balance, but this was just a facade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The hypocrisy of providing "health with care" is laughable. The last thing people working at Lifespan seem to be concerned about are the patients. I was treated with no respect, move around between 14 different units, given almost no training and feedback, then told I was being let go. My guess is that it was a top-down decision to take out someone who was higher on the salary scale. Maybe they should have thought of that before offering the job. Ridiculous lack of professionalism and care for patient confidentiality or patient care.

    Pros

    Some good people, lots of entry level opportunities in research.

    Cons

    Terrible management, poor pay. My manager was extremely oblivious to what any of our jobs were, and was constantly calling out for ridiculous reasons. Her boss didn't realize that it was others in our office who did her job, because he only came by about once a year to speak with us and "see how things are going".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what those below you are doing, and understand what their jobs are. Also, be more intelligent about who you are hiring/promoting as managers
