    I have been working at MelroseWakefield Healthcare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I've met some great people here.

    Cons

    Company was mismanaged for years, and they are now attempting to balance the budget by overloading employees at every level, sometimes at the expense of patient care. If you like doing 5 jobs at once, this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    When I started at Hallmark, it was named one of the Best Places to Work in Massachusetts. Turnover was very low, and the culture was fun and supportive. Now, people are just trying to survive every day, and are burned out beyond belief. I've never seen a place go downhill so fast, and have never worked in such a dour and negative environment. Balancing the budget at the cost of your employees' satisfaction is a... slippery slope, and I think the reputation of the hospital is at stake. The system is losing some very talented employees, and I am also on my way out the door at the first opportunity I get.

    Vested frontline leadership and executive team. CEO is a nurse. Family atmosphere. Emphasis on quality of care and growth.

    Can think of none. Same challenges as in healthcare everywhere today.

    Nurses won’t stay if they are not paid accordingly
