    I have been working at Erie County Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Patient care and the benefits package are pretty good.

    Cons

    Staff are treated very poorly by mid-upper management. Generally, management tactics that are heavily utilized include thinly veiled threats, intimidation, and bullying.

    CSEA union does not truly stand with it's members and leaving most of us voiceless and defenseless against unfair practices by "the corporation" as they willfully violate union contracts and then again engages in the above mentioned management tactics.

    Promotional opportunity through the traditions of being productive, creative, and hard working are squandered by mid-upper management creating new positions specific to the qualifications a specific person has (non-competitive), while the rest of the staff who are productive, creative, and hard working are left stuck. This repeats itself over and over again and has now has left the hospital absurdly top heavy and soulless...save for the many good caregivers, who the hospital can not hold onto as they are constantly looking for other opportunities elsewhere then leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the fat out of the mid-upper management. Stop descending upon us from your golden towers only when some lodges a complaint and make the time to actually see what it is we do in this hospital and how we are rewarded. You can pat yourselves on your backs right now for the incredible year-end revenue mark the hospital had just achieved, but don't lose yourselves in your grandiose delusions that this is a sign of an improving hospital. Good staff are still leaving, and the need for care in our community continues to grow. How will you answer your communities needs once the sheer weight of the numerous, ineffective management "team" forces out your last good doctor, nurse, therapist, receptionist?

    Pros

    None. Nothing good I can say about this institute.

    Cons

    Don't encourage Employees to grow. Managers do not possess a degree.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new Human Resource and Department Managers (with degrees not hand give a position). Encourage employee growth. Offer pay on par to other hospitals.

    Pros

    Benefits
    Amazing coworkers
    Cleaner facility than alot of long term care facilities.
    Overtime available
    Easy to move around to different positions.

    Cons

    Shift differential
    Getting time off that you have earned.
    Employees not appreciated.

    Provide more incentive to staff for doing consistent overtime.
    Appreciate employees more instead of making it hard for them to take PL or vacation.
    Make probation shorter. 6 months is a long time.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Only a few staff are trusting, the benfits, educational, the patient's make it worth the obstacles that the staff and administers pretend don't exist.

    Cons

    Coworkers are mostly mean,lie,thieving childern. It's worse then middle school. I have never seen such out right sickening behavior from staff.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes,stop the horrible events, stop listening to rumors, reward hard work, notice the staff good choice and not just give attention to the staff that are the problem.

    I worked at Erie County Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good money, retirement plan, insurance, unions

    Cons

    Less time off then some other agencies, absolutely no tolerance for you being late (even if its one minute) or calling in sick during your 6 month initial probation, other staff will throw you under the bus and go out of their way to get you in trouble if they don't like you, everything is very by the book, but many things are left unclear and up to interpretation, very easy to get into trouble. you have a rotating schedule that only comes out 3 weeks in advance and work weekends/evenings.

    hire people for civil service positions before the exam, then have to let you go if you don't get a top 3 score

    they fire/let go a ton of people every friday

    huge lack of respect if you if you're not a DR or RN

    Advice to Management

    realize that being one minute late or calling in sick doesn't make you unemployable

    Cons

    short staffing at times, must be able to work on the fly and multitask
