    Pros

    Clean environment, able to join the union if you're a staff nurse, employee bonuses when hospital meets their HCAPHS goal, valuable resources such as Resource nurse to be able to call upon.

    Cons

    Not knowing what to expect with the merge with Western Connecticut health network. There are rumors about changes coming to the Union and changes to the schedules nurses are allowed to work.

  2. Good place to work.

    Pros

    People friendly one on one.

    Cons

    Group dynamic less than optimal. NH is a great community hospital. Understand corporate affiliation the trend, but this comes at a cost where getting things done involves too many layers and players. Org chart is confounding.

    Advice to Management

    Too much duplicative effort working at cross purposes; would benefit from better coordination, definition & delegation of duties at all levels.

    Pros

    Great pay, great cafeteria, friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Company merged with Danbury hospital, laying all higher paying salaries off to hire new employees under Danbury with much lower pay, upper management doesn't care about its employees

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees more, and not the numbers and money, its the employees that keep the company running and bringing patients back.
