    I worked at Connecticut Children's Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work being done on behalf of the Children of Connecticut at this hospital is second to none. The staff is incredibly dedicated and is passionate about protecting the well-being and health of children. From clinical trials to facilities management, everyone I came into contact with was 100% invested in the mission of this hospital. For the time I was fortunate enough to work there, I felt a part of a select group of individuals that had a "higher calling" and it was a great feeling.

    Cons

    Some internal politics got in the way of some of the work being performed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to embrace the people that are doing the work of this fine hospital and keep fighting for every single dime that will fund the good work and allow the important services provided by this hospital to continue unimpeded.

    Pros

    CCMC is a great name for your resume.

    Cons

    PLEASE READ!!

    If you are thinking about billing, you can forget CCMC. The management in charge of billing are very incompetent. They do not know what they are doing, they are bias, and do not care for their employees, every one of them.

    It is always the "management clique" against employees, all the time. Every day is like a sweat shop working in the billing department at CCMC, especially for billing associates and no one gives any of us any recognition even though they are short staff and you have to kill yourself everyday because they have not been fully staffed for a very long time now.

    They will flaunt "one" employee that "they" think is doing good, forgetting that it takes a whole team to succeed and not just one person. It is such a turn off feeling like you and your coworkers are being put down all the time.

    Management do not know how to motivate staff, they do not show you any appreciation, you cannot learn anything from them. You can tell NONE of them have not got the proper training of how to be an effective manager nor have the right skills to be a manager. They ridicule and criticize folks all the time, no matter how hard you try.

    They drag people in the office for the pettiest things and the entire department is unhappy and that says something about management. Talking to HR makes no sense because they do not investigate anything, they are for management it seem.

    There have been 8 people that left the billing department in the last 3/4 months, total of over 10 people leaving in the last year. No wonder they stress employees so much and there is never a smooth day, you constantly are pulling your hair out because they cannot run a smooth department, management is too busy going out for 2 hour lunches and pointing fingers instead of coaching staff.

    They don't see their short comings because they are too proud and perfect. Senior manager is very insensitive/cold, controlling and just terrible, but you can't tell them that and there is no talking to them. All of us hate coming in to work every day, you have to work like a dog EVERY SINGLE DAY.

    Advice to Management

    Senior manager of all need to listen and treat ALL of your staff better, probably your asst. managers too, then maybe they will treat us better. Overall, you all could use some skills training, boot camp, workshop or something along those lines to gain better skill set in managing or how to treat your employees, from senior manager right down.

    Recognize all staff that comes in and does a hard and honest day's work and not just one person because it takes a team to do well and not just ONE employee, remember that.

    None of you are impressive and could mentor anyone because no one can learn anything much from any of you (I had to scratch my head recently, when in a meeting and the head of the billing department says that denials follow-up should do claims scrubbing, work variance, pricing, correct every other department and team's error and also do their work when do we get to actually work claim denials? and then you get on us about how high our AR is every day).

    You all need to rethink that because that is pure madness. It is not fair for people to have to up and leave a good company just because of you poor managers, you all need to do better at your jobs.

    Pros

    The work itself is rewarding. Kids are great! There is still great group of employees, though they are leaving in record numbers.

    Cons

    Management. Period. CCMC is so obsessed with obtaining magnet status and they are losing all of their most experienced and knowledgeable employees because of it. I’ve never seen such a hemorrhage of staff. If my children required emergency or critical care, I would not trust CCMC.

    Advice to Management

    Awards and certifications are meaningless if you’re doing things for the wrong reasons. They mean nothing if you step all over your staff in order to obtain them. This will compromise patient safety and someone will suffer for your mistakes.
