    I have been working at Southern New Hampshire Health System full-time

    Pros

    The hospital itself is fantastic. We care about our patients. But upper management has recently shifted to a business atmosphere.

    Cons

    Benefits aren't what they used to be. Underpaid, overworked, not appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to taking care of your employees. You used to feel appreicated.

    I have been working at Southern New Hampshire Health System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people to work with. Cafeteria food prices are low, and food is not that bad, you can deduct the food out of your paycheck.

    Cons

    Low pay, not good health benefits, little time off. No work from home. Little organizational standards, they just "wing" things and it made me very nervous (administrative level). People are placed in positions that they should not be in, no experience. No performance raise; you do not have to do anything to get a raise. Personal growth opportunities do not exist. "Perception is everything". Departments have a hard time seeing the big picture.

    Advice to Management

    Higher the right people, get better benefits, offer performance raises, allow some people to work home (depending on position).

    I have been working at Southern New Hampshire Health System full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are okay. Time off is standard. Leadership is extremely poor.

    Cons

    Very little time to train, due to under staffing. Training never completed to best of ability.

    Advice to Management

    Promotions are for those who have not done the job, and "fit in"!! Not usually qualified.

    I have been working at Southern New Hampshire Health System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits acceptable, except horrible health insurance.

    Cons

    Many in management and administration are dishonest and unethical. If you try to communicate to them, they do not listen and do not want to hear what you have to say. If you try to speak out on concerning issues you will suffer consequences as their only aim is to sustain the status quo, even if there is dysfunction or hostile management tactics. Upper management keeps middle managers in place, even though they are inept to say the least.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the dead wood off the tree in management and administration. They are costing you good employees who leave due to the incompetence and hostile behavior.

    I worked at Southern New Hampshire Health System part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The staff was so nice, I can admit that. But that is the only nice thing I can say about this hospital.

    Cons

    The people just were not organized causing patients stress. They would lose things and leave out important information on discharge papers.

    Advice to Management

    Put ALL information on discharge papers. Keep all patient belongings together. Stay organized and keep up consistency with patients and patient care.

    Pros

    Not a good fit if you have a creative mind and need a little more freedom in your job. They tend to be really rigid with the rules.

    Cons

    really great pay and benefits and the job itself was not too hard.

    Pros

    Compensation was good and there was no problem getting time off.

    Cons

    Over privileged cardiologists who are legends in their own mind. Spoiled sonographers who put their own needs above patient care. Very cliquey lab to work in. Very little ideological diversity.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees and do not look at them as expenses. Treat employees consistently.

    Pros

    depending on the manager or supervisor it might be ok to take vacations or sick days. Or you might have to "schedule your sick days!!!!!"

    Cons

    lower pay than other area hospitals based on experience. They rather hire from outside than promote within!! even if the employee is dedicated and deserving!!

    Advice to Management

    it's time to evaluate the managers and directors that have been there for years and years. They do not lead by example, they get away with alot.

    Pros

    SNHMC has some wonderful employees that are very focused on quality patient care. Some of the physicians employed by the Center are among the best I have ever known. There is a company paid pension if you have enough longevity.

    Cons

    Upper management has supported incompetent middle managers for decades. Some managers are seriously disorganized, violate hospital policies, engaged in social relationships with supervisees and play favorites. Communication is poor. Training is minimal. There are significant inequities in salaries among people doing the same jobs, despite being more experienced and qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Favoritism erodes employee morale. Compensation for some positions needs to be brought up to par with the duties involved. Incompetent managers who have been at the center of numerous complaints by doctors, supervisees, and other managers over an extended period of time need to be terminated or demoted. In some cases, unit employees should be interviewed in a manner that makes them feel safe and protected to get all the facts out.
