    I worked at Middlesex Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Middlesex offers good insurance and benefits packages. Co workers knowledgable and work well together as team and independently. Flexibility with schedule at times. Offers membership to union in the homecare environment.

    Cons

    Management does not always support direct care staff. Supervisor of clinical services at the time was dictatorial and not supportive. Could not trust this individual to follow through on promises made. This individual has since left this position. Flexibility is not guaranteed based on needs of clients served.

    Advice to Management

    Participate in direct care enough so that you can appreciate the schedule that you are giving your staff and the challenges that they face in the field.

    Pros

    -good pay -yearly bonus -decent health insurance -good co-workers

    -poor work/life balance -can't get a vacation because 1. management doesn't know what they're doing, and 2. not enough contracted employees (they hire way too many per-diems) -turnover rate in the pharmacy department is highest in state for a reason -micro-management -favortism -HR department is a joke, has done nothing about our high turnover rate

    I have been working at Middlesex Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a small facility, and it's easy to get to know your co-workers. When you need something there's not a lot of red tape.

    Cons

    If you are a nonclinical employee working in the nursing department, you will receive no rewards, recognition, or opportunities for advancement. Compensation is poor. I am leaving soon, and have advocated for an upgrading of my position upon my departure, but have been told that's not possible. Thousands of dollars squandered on window-dressing programs such as Magnet.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your whole staff, not just nursing.

    Pros

    -Excellent healthcare benefits for FT employees including cell phone, theme park, etc discounts available for all employees -Pay is decent the higher your position is but for entry level positions, the pay is on the low end -Employment pretty stable in general -Lots of friendly staff -Some management very nice Overall I enjoy working for Middlesex Hospital- it's not perfect but not bad either.

    Cons

    - Some departments can be very stressful as with fast paced healthcare enviroments should be expected - Some management difficult to work for - Some physicians need to display a better attitude (rather than thinking they should be catered to so highly) or perhaps a vacation more frequently might help. - Some departments are too gossipy

    Advice to Management

    That management recognize and reward staff more often for a combo of providing excellent service and support, going above and beyond, including good work ethic. Rewards to staff should be more tangible.
