    I have been working at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    WDH staff absolutely provide the best patient care in the Seacoast of NH! They are committed to excellence and high quality provision of care. Benefits are aligned with other organizations locally and compensation is very comparable.

    Cons

    Leadership is certainly trying to communicate more clearly but they have a ways to go, please keep trying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your employees all the way across the organization.

    I have been working at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The staff at the hospital care for patients like family. This group of nurses is really working to be competitive and provide quality care.

    Cons

    Although there is a lot of change currently in healthcare, there is a resistance to change in the facility. The hospital has many long time employees who view the work as what has always been done, instead of making changes for the better.

    I have been working at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital

    Pros

    Good pay, and good benefits..

    Cons

    Petty managers that are spiteful and vindictive but don't get reprimanded when you say something to higher-ups, working with people who don't treat you like a human being just because you don't make as much as they do. Very bad discrimination in my department, and you don't get any recognition for anything you do by management. They reward the favorites and the lazy but squish the hard workers under their boot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try paying attention to all the complaints about the management in this department- do an internal investigation, check it out instead of just sweeping it under the rug. Instead of wording about all the extra projects and unneeded gadgets, listen to what the employees that actually do the work and see what they need. Engage the employees in the decisions, not just the managers who don't know what's going on..
