    Unionized hospital with hostile work envirnment, very much management vs staff.

    Pep Time Off very beneficial

    Cons

    Cost of living still exceeds the pay

    Advice to Management

    I would try to prevent the vocal instigators of drama from controlling how proceedings are dictated while also being able to step outside that at will because they are your informant. (A small incident in an overall good corporation).

    Pros

    Good people to work with, very caring of each other

    Cons

    Management heavy. The degree paper means more than the actual experience in the roll. For instance an assistant manager with zero experience in the department was hired simply because of the degree.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so degree focused. I realize wanting to be a magnet hospital requires you to push for BSN for all, but experience should also be considered into the equation.

    I have been working at Eastern Maine Medical Center part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great nurses, good ICU/CCU set up and good Nurse:pt ratios there, majority of doctors are very friendly and willing to help pts, good service, excellent therapists, yearly bonuses and % increase for performance

    Cons

    Staffing ratios outside the ICU/CCU are horrendous, huge staffing deficit currently need many more nurses and CNA's alike, long emergency room waits, a lot of construction currently with many detours

    Advice to Management

    Fix the staffing problem and there would be many more happy employees and a safer environment to work in and be a patient in alike
