    I have been working at Catholic Health System

    Pros

    Good pay and that is literally the ONLY pro.

    Cons

    Co-workers are miserable and nasty, constant complaining for patients on how bad their experience was and their care was. Management is corrupt especially in maintenance director takes kick backs from contractors. No one has your back they make up lies and threaten to fire you every other day this is currently probably my 10th time being told im getting fired in 3 years all because i have FMLA for a medical condition and my co workers cant mind their own business and make up lies to supervisors who stupidly believe. i was never warned or told what was going on was called to hr and told i was getting fired. Save yourself the aggravation pay sounds great but absolutely 100% NOT worth it

    Current Employee - Registered Nurse, BSN in Buffalo, NY

    I have been working at Catholic Health System part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay is competitive to other hospitals in western NY

    Cons

    The staffing is terrible and we are often short. Management does not appreciate their employees, we never get a "good job" for anything that we do even if we go above and beyond for our patients. Whenever we are short staffed, they never say "thank you for working so hard", it's always "why isn't this done?". Catholic health treats you as just a body used to help them make money instead of treating you like actual human beings.
