    I worked at Eastern Maine Medical Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work experience in a fast-paced high-complexity environ. Many good techs.

    Cons

    Unless you're one of their grads and from that area, you're likely to get hired only to be "used up" and thrown away. Favoritism and position go only to those who are not "from away." This has created an "inbred" climate. Some policies are in place because of politics vs. science. As usual for corporate bodies esp. those carrying lots of debt, money takes priority over patient care.

    I have been working at Eastern Maine Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you are lucky enough to get into a small department you can sometimes get your own office, and time off does not need to be put in way ahead of time. Flexible hours

    Cons

    Some departments require prime time off to be submitted a year at a time & it is sometimes difficult to get a day off. No true paid holidays- if you want the day paid you have to use your normal vacation time. No true sick time, comes from your normal Vacation time. Pay grades for those that are lower on the ladder need an overhaul, there is such a shortage of CNA’s & MA’s because the poor is quite poor. Health insurance benefits are ok but certainly not great & there are lots of problems with claims & such. Changes occur that directly affect employees & said employees are not informed or asked about these changes until they have already been done.

    I worked at Eastern Maine Medical Center part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay is ok and job is good if you are very lazy. I am not lazy but if you are then this is the job for you!

    Cons

    Rude coworkers, drama lamas all over, no escape from the highschool behavoirs even in management. No respect for what you do. No breaks( but lunch...sometimes) can't even pee because you can't leave your pt. CNAs and Nurses get bored and start crap with other employees they deem lower than them. Talk about each other, complain about having to do their jobs, complain and complain for the entire 12 hour shift! How can they complain that much! The name calling, making fun of pts, pts families, mocking empoyees and pts just very low maturity. To be nice to them was to show weakness to the sharks. It wasn't worth anything they could offer to stay. High turn over rates because of this and mistreatment of staff. You can make just as much as a waitress or at dunkin and not have to deal with death, illnesses, suicides, mental illness, being attacked phsyically or verbally by pt and staff. Seriously they train you in selfdefense. Yes it is that bad. Bed Rails hurt!

    I worked at Eastern Maine Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    EMMC is the highest paying healthcare employer in the state.

    Cons

    The management is highly dysfunctional with high turn-over in management and staff positions. Despite the high pay and the presence of many highly-qualified RNs, management does not listen to the staff and problems compound instead of being constructively managed.
