    I worked at Yale-New Haven Hospital full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Has a positive reputation which is unfortunate because its one of the worst places I have ever worked .

    Cons

    Hospital acquiesce to the minorities and does not discipline equitably across racial lines. This leads to sub standard care ultimately because no matter what dept your talking about that dept in some way effects patient care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turn in your keys and let more competent people give it a go.

    I worked at Yale-New Haven Hospital full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great except that you have to pay for parking

    Cons

    Management is very unorganized. They don't care about there employees. I was currently employed and got injured working with patients and was let go because I got injured working. I'm still not able to work and they continue to not pay for anything associated with worker's comp. Management makes every excuse to not help employees to improve within the corporation. There is no structured and it was one of the worst places I have ever worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better management that care about there employees that can take suggestions on how to improve how the department and patient care should be. They emergency department is run very poorly and the management is a joke. If your not in a relationship with a manager or know how to kiss butt to the management team, they will find every way to terminate your employment.

    I have been working at Yale-New Haven Hospital full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Close to highways. Nice cafe.
    Interesting cases

    Cons

    Management does not respond to sexual harrassment and bullying . They have policies against this behavior but do not address the behavior. Shift favoritism blatant.
    Allow harrassment and retaliation to continue. Do not honor verbal contracts made when you are being hired.
    Management verbally abusive and not supportive. Would not recommend.
    This hospital Lies to staff and public. Poor communication between staff and upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow your mission statement and policies you set for employees.
    Listen to your employees. You have a code of conduct in the employee handbook it should be enforced for all.

    I have been working at Yale-New Haven Hospital full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very diverse, friendly atmosphere, decent benefits, location

    Cons

    Poor Mgmt, unorganized. Employees are not compensated fairly or equally.Policies are inconsistent, they make up rules as they go. They adhere to certain standards and pay scales, however within those scales compensation varies widely for all the wrong reasons. The unfairness and inequities are astonishing.

     Rarely are there opportunities for advancement unless you are in an entry level position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of focusing all of your attention on clinical areas, pay more attention to the administrative side. There are issues there as well.

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to learn and practice.

    Cons

    Too big and beaurucratic if you are looking to work for a team or become part of a family while working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of all your employees and not just the few (e.g. doctors and nurses). Everyone makes a difference.

    Current Employee - Medical Interpreter in New Haven, CT
    Current Employee - Medical Interpreter in New Haven, CT

    I have been working at Yale-New Haven Hospital full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    As an interpreter, I love to facilitate the communication between patients and providers. The need for interpreting services exists in every department within the hospital. One has the chance to meet diverse people and help to explain medical conditions and available treatments, as well as learning new terminology very often. The schedule is not strenuous and the payment is good.

    Cons

    The department is very disorganized and does not promote the jobs around the hospital, letting these jobs be taken by phone-interpreters or freelance interpreters with more costly and less effective outcomes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring more qualified in-house interpreters; compare the costs with phone-interpreting services; allow interpreters to promote their services in the departments staying on floor and not in the office waiting for the dispatchers to give them a new assignment; open an internship for less experienced interpreters and allow them to be mentored by more experienced ones, with the possibility of being hired in the future.
