    I have been working at Bassett Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the people are genuinely kind and caring.

    Cons

    Company is too top heavy with many layers of highly paid leaders while staff are grossly underpaid.
    Very little, if any advancement opportunity; and that's achieved by popularity not skill.

    I have been working at Bassett Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Some departments great and offer work life balance and even work from home options ( non patient centered departments )

    Cons

    Decent benefits but terrible providers to choose from . Benefits only good if you use Bassett.

    Add 30 min to your total commute time for Parking and riding the shuttle.

    The pay is terrible, if you must take a job here - negotiate!!! You will never see a raise, not even the 2-3% cost of living yearly raises most places have.

    Periodically they do a market adjustment and try to bring the median of your salary to the median of the market- except they never want to pay anyone at the median. Working here you are always under paid .

    There are cliques in upper management. Some people seriously don't like others and this is reflected by all lower level departments .

    They do not have a good company culture . It takes some time to see it clearly but average person stays 2.5 years , that is around the time the culture becomes clear.

    No new employee or talented person is going to build a career in this environment . It is not a good place to work and well I avoid getting care here and bringing my relatives here .

    Don't work there, the boss is an idiot.

    I worked at Bassett Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. Great people to work with throughout the hospital.

    Cons

    High turnover in many departments. Favoritism of certain employees. Mandated meetings on days off.

    Advice to Management

    Implement mandatory management training. Put managers with high turnover on the spot for an explanation as to why. Perhaps it's the way they treat their staff. When disciplining employees, check their annual evaluations. Perhaps there is something which appears to be unusual regarding the allegations regarding the employee. Managers are only human and also make mistakes. Take time with the accused employee and investigate the allegation and the manager's conduct. You may be surprised and it may cut down on turnover which is costly.

    I have been working at Bassett Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cooperstown is a charming town, there are many nice employees and if you like the rural life, it is a love community.

    Cons

    Management (if you can call it that) is horrible! In the OR, all management short of one are travelers and seeing no one knows how long they will stay, they get very little respect. Due to that, they implement by mandate which makes no one happy which snow balls to an even poorer climate in the OR. Compound that with very poor pay, poor benefits, and a poorly staffed OR leads to high stress and an unhappy OR community.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people.

    Pros

    They are willing to work with you to make sure that you are in the right department/job for you. There is endless potential here and if you are the type who likes a challenge this is the job for you.

    Cons

    The culture. Many great leaders here working to make changes however the culture continues to make that difficult. There are a good deal of people who really need to retire and some who are so progressive they are reckless. It is a terrible combination that stifles responsible innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the barriers of communication to front line staff. The nursing staff make up their own rules and often disregard the information being shared with them to default back to doing things their own way or "the way we've always done it"
