    I worked at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great department - wonderful co-workers and manager, good clinical experience with a community hospital feel, yet high acuity patients.

    Cons

    Nutrition department is severely undervalued and underpaid. Management above the nutrition / food service management does not care about the department in any way. Very money focused, at the expense of the well-being of their employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Many of the colleagues are friendly.

    Cons

    Misleading about payrate. You will not see the money you were quoted when you agreed to take the position. Management are bullies Big turnover with employees Lack of professional courtesy Difficulty completing tasks because of poor technology

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to new employees about payrates. Get better computer technology Learn how to treat professionals with the respect that they deserve. Lahey asks for degreed people but treats them like highschool drop outs. Management are not easy to talk to Stop being dismissive to employees

    I have been working at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    easy commute, my coworkers are great

    Cons

    don't want to pay nurses; 2 percent raise last spring (but hadn't had one in several years; those of us who have been nurses over 20 years - no longer get raises - as we are considered to be at market rate - yet those that leave seem to end up making several dollars more an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Nurse managers should do more than listen to their staff....and take issues up the chain of command.

    I worked at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Some great coworkers, but mostly unmotivated people

    Cons

    My experience with this organization was that it was very poorly run. I had over four managers in the less than three years that I worked there. Extremely unsafe patient to nurse ratios made it impossible to give good nursing care, at the expense of the patient. I was very glad to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Work as a staff RN for one shift a month, night and day, to see exactly what your staff have to do.
