Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Albany Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The best thing is that I was hired without any prior research experience, just a BSc. So it is the perfect place to get your foot in the door.

Great learning environment, ability to make my own schedule and to gain independence and publications in research projects as a technician, great seminars and lectures by scientists from around the country.

Cons

Your job is at the mercy of grant funding.
No bonuses. Took a very long time to get a raise.

    I worked at Albany Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Albany Medical Center is a wonderful place to gain experience and learn. It is a large, academic hospital with a diverse environment. As a Respiratory Therapist, you can develop a strong foundation for your future.

    Cons

    While AMC is a great place to learn, it comes with its challenges. Working as a Respiratory Therapist can be difficult mainly due to poor management. The department itself has amazing potential, but it is inhibited by poor management that lacks the ability to embrace their employees. Pay is also very low. Begining RT salary is only around $21 per hour.

    Advice to Management

    You have a strong workforce. Learn to embrace your employees and hear their concerns. With this, you could develop a strong Respiratory Therapy department that can serve as a model department for the area.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Albany Medical Center part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There's always going to be a couple bad apples to ruin things for you employee wise but there's definitely more good people that are willing to help and teach. But I may just be in a good department.
    The Gym and Cafeteria is great as well

    Cons

    Extremely hard to get hired here unless you know someone. Even if you manage to get hired but wish to switch departments its still very hard to move around.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make the department feel more like a family it makes a difference whether you're a patient,visitor or employee.
