    I have been working at Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Healthcare as an industry is going through growing pains and this place is one of the best places to work in Maine if you want to be a part of the transformation. Personally I work in a great department with a good boss. Overall I find most of the people here are happy and warm.

    Cons

    Change happens very slowly here. The biggest challenge to EMHS is that the organization can't get out of its own way. Overly complex bureaucracy and the left hand doesnt know what the right hand knows. A culture of insecurity and distrust is growing.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't treat your staff and employees like the fully-formed adults they are then the cultural trend of distrust will only escalate. You have some amazing leaders and employees there that see that things CAN be different. Listen to them and give them a chance.

    I have been working at Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They have the jobs. Largest employer in the area, if you don't like current position, there is some opportunity to move around. Provided ample education opportunities.

    Cons

    Questionable future viability of company as debt soars and revenues drop. Those who get ahead keep their mouths shut and just do what they are told to do, otherwise face retaliation.

    Advice to Management

    Realize where you are in and stop trying to set up systems that work in PA.

    Good benefits and flexible time off.

    Cons

    Not all hospitals work together since EMHS is always expanding and not the same systems are being used.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that you cant expect to get the same results for all hospitals since they are all very different.

    I have been working at Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is above-average. There are many positions that one could apply for, should they be inclined. The PEP system they have set up is great, because you can use a general bucket of accrued time for sick, personal, vacation, or holiday time.

    Cons

    The hours are long, there is very little communication within the organization. People lose jobs to create opportunities for extra VP roles. Money is spent frivolously, and there is a committee for everything.

    Advice to Management

    I have never seen such a blind group of people. You actually believe that you care about the employees you have, the community you serve? Wrong. You are snakes.

    Pros

    Dynamic industry with changes in healthcare reimbursement requiring changes in how healthcare is delivered. Many opportunities.

    Cons

    Challenges are endless and demands are high due to the changes in how healthcare is delivered. If we don't change it now, this country as well as all around the world will go bankrupt.

    Advice to Management

    Engage the staff in helping with the reinvention of healthcare as they are your greatest asset.
