    I have been working at Cambridge Health Alliance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay for social work. They try to help patients and are normally fair to employees. Have worked here many years. The union is a big help and totally needed to protect your job.

    Cons

    Need more social worker like any other hospital. Need more vacation days as they don't have enough time off for employees. More personal time makes happier people.

    Pros

    Schedule flexible, another world of pharmacy that is beneficial - always new things to learn about within pharmacy. EPIC use so we don't have to wait for a doctors call regarding patients.

    Cons

    Favoritism.. no parking on site. Earn time (PTO) you receive a good amount but it's used towards holidays when close.

    I have been working at Cambridge Health Alliance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, union positions, excellent pay in the market overall, a teaching hospital that works to focus on education which facilitates the continued education of excusing staff also. Diverse population with many challenges; not easy to work with but very rewarding. Most staff are clearly there because they love the population.

    Cons

    Management heavy with lots of disconnection between staff and managers. High management turnover. Sometimes vision of work is unclear due to managers who don't agree with each other. Different departments feel very fragmented and don't collaborate easily.

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate management; illicit more feedback from staff, ensure all departments are working towards the same goal.
