    I worked at Maine Medical Center

    Pros

    Great co workers and benefits. Hours were good. Rehab staff was like family lots of group activities outside of work

    Cons

    Requesting time off was a challenge. Not that they would not give time off if asked but needed to make sure no less than 5 people in the department were not off

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate the yearly evaluation forms

    Pros

    The institute has a supportive graduate and post-doc program. There is a Research Fellows Association that brings in a lot of research and business management related seminars. The institute frequently has guest seminar speakers where the students have the opportunity to have lunch with those speakers to discuss career avenues and science as a whole.

    Cons

    The institute runs off grants so the success of your specific lab in terms of getting funding determines what you can do experimentally and how long your position may last though the institute tries extremely hard to support people when a lab has used all of its funding by either giving them support funds or placing people in other labs throughout the institute.

    Pros

    people are kind and hard working.

    Cons

    your left on your own to figure things out, poor support system.

    Advice to Management

    support your staff when they want to take time off. Don't let staff that have been in the company a long time have first pick at all the holidays and summer time off. Rotate holidays to new staff too.
