    Great coworkers. Dedicated employees. Great benefits.

    Small departments get lost among bigger counterparts. Squeaky wheel gets the oil. Management is more reactive than proactive. Poor work-life balance.

    Pros

    Great bunch of dedicated RN's at Merrimack Valley.

    Cons

    Unsafe staffing continues at Steward. As a nurse I am sad for the patients who enter these doors. We staff the hospital like a Monday through Friday business. I love my job but dislike administration running the hospital who looks at the all might dollar and not the patient.. Patients come first in my book I am a dedicated RN.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is about quality care not quanity. We can bring back a good reputation back to Haverhill but you are going to have to spend a little to get a little we can do this!

    I have been working at Steward Health Care System full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers are friendly and the cafeteria has good food. That's it.

    Cons

    Management is unpleasant.
    Payment is low
                      No raises
                      Or the raise doesn't compensate for the national inflation rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dear Management,
    Please learn the valuable skill of treating your employees like human beings. You suck at it.

    I worked at Steward Health Care System part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I can honestly say there are no pros.

    Cons

    Complete disregard for patients or employees. I worked in the laboratory for 15 years before the hospital was bought by Steward Healthcare. They put money into making the building look nicer but not into improving patient care. Things just got worse and worse. VERY understaffed. The only reason I stayed as long as I did was because I liked the people I worked with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO Ralph de la Torre is not respected among the employees and he does not understand that you need that to have a quality company. Steward will never become what they want it to be - they just don't get it.

    Pros

    PTO policy was great if you were allowed the chance to take the time off

    Your best asset is your staff. You should treat them better
