    I have been working at UMass Memorial Medical Center (More than a year)

    Pros

    They pay very well compared to the other hospitals in the area

    Cons

    My department is terribly managed, the hospital is too big and things just don't get accomplished. My department is experiencing a lot of budget cuts so we often go without breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees!

    Pros

    Decent pay depending on the department, good location away from Boston so the commute may be more tolerable depending on where you live

    Cons

    This is such a toxic work environment. I have worked in two different departments and it's terrible.

    Advice to Management

    It's so bad I wouldn't know where to start. I guess the first thing would be to revire the people that have worked there for 30 - 40 years and see if they are still contributing at the level they should be.


  3. Mismanaged finanically therefore they treat their employees terribly, especially the RNs

    I worked at UMass Memorial Medical Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Level 1 trama center in central ma.

    Cons

    They have scaled there education back for RNs because of a lack of funds. They do not value their employees and are trying to pull back on benefits to save money. Severe micromanagement and zero autonomy. Ranked the worse Emergency Dept in the state of MA. Vascular surgery dept unsafe. If umass had their way they would hire uneducated individuals from 3rd world country's so they would not pay them. Equivalent to sweatshop mentality of patient care.

    Advice to Management

    Umass was once a fabulous hospital to work and to receive medical care. I would clean house at the very top of management before it files for chapter 11. The RNs are your #1 assets.

    Low pay, employees are micro-managed, it's a wonder that anything gets done with so many meetings.

    Pros

    Met some great people, decent vacation time.

    Cons

    Terrible pay. Work load doubled after a hiring freeze was put into place with no extra compensation. Different rules apply to different employees - double standard. Always have to watch your back. Plan on leaving for work at least 45 minutes earlier than expected due to the parking issues (and bring an extra coat for when you have to wait outside for a shuttle in the winter).

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect - all employees.
