    I have been working at Holyoke Medical Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Mostly wonderful clinical staff, opportunity to provide community-based care.

    Cons

    The CEO has an explosive temper, and he runs the hospital the way Trump runs the government. You are either with him or against him, and those who offer alternative views or feedback are not long for the organization. He allows physicians to bully the staff without consequences. Reported incidents of bullying by physicians have been ignored by HR and administration resulting in loss of many excellent staff members at all levels. Members of the administration who might not agree with this culture or these decisions are afraid to speak up for fear of losing their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the CEO with someone who will promote a positive work culture and value the employees.

    I worked at Holyoke Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The floor staff is excellent, caring, and concerned.

    Cons

    The management and upper administration is uncaring about the patients and their staff. Money is their only concern.
    If any issues arise--someone is usually made to be a scapegoat.
    They failed to protect a staff member when the staff member was threatened by an unhappy patient

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees and your patients.

    Pros

    Benefits, Pay and Great Employees who deserve recognition

    Cons

    Upper Management needs to be changed
    have a get it done attitude, no matter who it hurts or at what cost, when it doesnt pan out
    they use lower level employees as a scapegoat, thus the Mass exodus that has and continues to take place at this Medical Center

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees, these people have families to take care of, they are human beings
    Stop treating them like disposable diapers that you can discard like trash, these employees made HMC what it is today and deserve more than what you give them
