    I have been working at Strong Memorial Hospital part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Management in this hospital dept is receptive to employees' needs. Highly flexible schedules. Solid benefit plan. Tuition benefits and access to university facilities.

    Cons

    Obvious challenges of work in medical setting, such as conflicts with patients and visitors, stress, etc. Bureaucratic inefficiency is a problem in some cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More opportunities for advancement needed. Pay raises that track inflation. Nicer break rooms. Better structure needed to encourage changes that would streamline the institution.

    Largest Employer in Rochester, management has many ego driven issues.

    I worked at Strong Memorial Hospital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Strong Memorial Hospital offers a benefits package that is pretty good. Healthcare, dental, 401K options, etc.

    Cons

    I would echo what I see many others writing here and say that management is the largest issue. There is such a lack of communication between all areas of management and staff. The majority of managers have no clue what staff is actually doing nor do many of them care. They just care about keeping their management positions.

    In addition to this, they are generally speaking incredibly ego driven and arrogant. It is not uncommon for management to believe the employee is lucky to be working for an institution like Strong. It is a culture problem.

    Beyond that, it's essentially a "boy's club" up at the highest levels. I don't mean this in the actual "Male/Female" way, but more so it's impossible to advance in this organization as the same basic 10 individuals control all aspects of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It might be time to seriously consider some fresh blood in the middle, senior, and executive ranks.
