    I worked at Newton-Wellesley Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    very supportive of new staff, flexible self scheduling, overall a great team with many RN's who have been there for more years than I've been alive. Good benefits, although I never took part in any since I was covered else where. Overall an excellent experience that I feel very fortunate to have.

    Cons

    The team at times can be incredibly gossipy, as long as you don't participate I didn't see it as a true problem, just a bit of a block for overall morale. Many surgeons were difficult to work with and often slammed leadership while in the OR. Another chip for overall morale. We were often told the importance of 'speaking up' yet it didn't seem like administration set realistic expectations of the Dr.'s. In turn the team sort of got the hit of it.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more support for team to speak up toward overly aggressive surgeons. Communicate and set better expectations for turn around time, especially over summer or other heavy vacation times.

    I have been working at Newton-Wellesley Hospital part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Being part of an institution that is truly focused on quality of care. Investing in employee learning and growth.

    Cons

    Union environment. Seems to cause stagnation in terms of growth for some of the nurses.

    Advice to Management

    We all know that the union is a factor with expenditures r/t nursing and ultimately impacts bottom line. Make sure that non-union folks are well compensated in equal ways. Increasing salaries may of non-union personnel would be great, but valuable other perks could also go a long way (educational opportunities, free gym, extra week of vaca, etc.)
