- Charged for parking but in the winter the lots were not plowed well at all
- Employees not allowed to walk through the front door - felt like second class citizen

Advice to Management

Listen to your people on the front lines -they see and know things that you don't.

    I have been working at Yale New Haven Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits and pay are ok for the New Haven area. But that is not saying much since the only two large employers are the hospital and Yale. Employees in general are nice. Hours are decent. Some good managers, some really bad managers.

    Cons

    Extremely hierarchical, at least in IT. Management wears ties, everyone else doesn't. I find this strange. Average age is probably close to 50. Doctors rule the roost. Everyone else that isn't a money generator is second class. Current IT management is overly metrics driven. The company is extremely anti-union, and although I am not in clinical or paid hourly I feel management hostility to workers. Not sure why. There is very low turnover since everyone in management has been there a long time so forget about moving up. IT management attitude is that employees should just be happy they have a job. This is the wrong type of thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Develop actual career planning into an employees review. Don't look at employees as expenses that need to be cut.
