    Resigned After All That Time

    RNI (Former Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsMostly great coworkers and good work environment. Most of us care about our patients.

    ConsExperienced verbal abuse. Employees were afraid to file a complaint. The stress caused me to have a slight stroke.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReally good employees are resigning. Abuse of authority creates a chaotic Work environment.

    Okay

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsFree staff parking and wonderful president who cares a lot about his staff.

    ConsManagement of the Rehab Hospital needs some MAJOR improvements. Sweet to your face and than talk behind your back.I see it all day long and it hurts the moral of the teams. We are wonderful staff but don't always get treated that way.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe nice to people because karma can come back to bite you!

    Great Place to Work, Especially When Consider Local Options

    RNI (Current Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsThe organization really cares about its employees, Offers the complexity - in a good way - to local teaching hospitals with the soul of a community hospital. The President has done a great job in building a team and infusing a sense of caring. His vision and connection are outstanding.

    ConsAlthough parking is free, some have to park in satellite location. Some of the facilities still need updating, but the hospital has been renovating and building for the past couple of decades and it's looking better and better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing, be more visible if you can - we know you get very busy; thank you for bringing back the 403b match.

    Nursing is given the due respect they deserve

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsNurses are given a high level of autonomy compared to other hospitals. Management expectations of staff tend to push the limits in terms of nurse patient ratio. The physicians are respectful and collaborative.

    Cons403b matching has been suspended due to budget restraints.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to be more integrated into the daily activities of the staff

    Hospital is GREAT for Treatment, But treatment of employees is terrible.

    (Former Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsAwesome health benefits. Doctors are on site. Appointments can be made during the work day. Kosher Deli and regular non-kosher cafeteria. The general peer relationship is good - and overall the administrative and medical staff are friendly and always ready to help the patient or patient's family. There is a Family feel to the hospital.

    ConsConstantly changing mid to higher level management. The Sr leadership tends towards favoritism. There is little communication about changes in structure to the employees until after the changes take place and employees feel as if the rug has been taken out from under them. Mid-high level managers often support backbiting and backstabbing - complaints were heard that other employees were afraid of this manager or that manager due to tenure and ability to get someone fired by whining to the correct VP or Pres. If you go to HR, there is a general understanding that nothing you say is confidential, so no one goes to HR until they can handle it no longer. Over all, the place breeds insecurity, backstabbing, secretive back room talks, and a disconnect with employees who help power the hospital.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to what employees tell HR. Keep who said what confidential. Reiterate that with HR Staff. It is difficult enough to go to an HR department and discuss your VP or Pres disrespecting and/or mistreating an individual without worrying that there will be a backlash.

    Beware of Sinai Hospital of Baltimore. Talk to other employees before signing on with Sinai.

    Average Human Being, Just Trying to Do A Good Job. (Former Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsSinai has a history of being a leader in Medicine in the community.

    ConsI have worked in four different hospitals. Sinai ranks as the worst (by far) in terms of how they treat their employees. Regardless if one is a tech, a nurse, a physician, support staff, secretary--you name in, the vice presidents categorically seem to actively pursue the philosophy of "the beatings will continue until morale improves." This is NOT a good place to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDear Senior Management: You are working with fellow human beings. Treat them with respect and kindness. Otherwise, you will continue to see a mass exodus of employees who flee from your draconian practices. It's not too late for you to regain some respect within the medical community. Right now, though, the word on the street is to avoid Sinai. It is you, the management, who have set the tone so that this opinion exists. It is the truth.
