    I have been working at Rhode Island Hospital part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good flexibility in work schedule. Primary investigators are understanding of personal situations. Topics are engaging and fun.

    Cons

    Pay is not as high as it should be. Funding for lab research is not sufficient. Often times, most of the time is pent on grant proposals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Direct more money to research.

    I worked at Rhode Island Hospital full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, fair salaries, excellent wellness programs

    Cons

    The cultural environment has changed drastically. No loyalty and will dismiss you regardless of longevity for no specific reason if you are not a union employee. Has become very impersonal atmosphere (lack of respect and value for employees). HR does not work with employees experiencing difficulties to assist with resolving issues. Easier to let you go. Losing many valuable employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should practice same principles that are expected of employees. HR needs improvement in addressing employee problems as well in their recruitment. Seems to be lack of communication between hiring managers and recruiters. Too slow to send applicants to hiring managers

    I worked at Rhode Island Hospital full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary increases thanks to the union. But I was told that I didn't deserve them.

    Cons

    I don't know about the other departments, but my experience in The Division of General Internal Medicine was absolutely horrible. Not long after I started, I was treated terribly and I was there for over eight years. The office was very clicky. The main doctor for whom I worked acted as if she regretted hiring me. Every time she saw me, she treated me with complete disdain. I finally asked her about it one time to which she replied, "Let's not get personal."
