    I have been working at Maine Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I work with a great team of nurses!
    Doctors work amazing side by side with nursing staff, which is very rare!
    Medical benefits are overall good.

    Cons

    Overall benefits are not great. I am not talking about medical benefits I am talking about the little things to retain staff. Like holiday/weekend/night shift requirements. Nurses on my unit that have worked for the company for 20+ years are still required to work nights, not by choice. They also do not off enough incentive to come in on super short staffed day. Like who wants to come in and work their BUTT off for only a few extra dollars???? At other facilities I've worked at in different cities they would at a minimum offer double time. Also if you are staffed those days you most likely will never get a break and management should bring lunch in. How are you supposed to work a 12 hour+ day with no one to cover you to grab a snack or go pee?

    Advice to Management

    Offer more incentive to make nurses happier!

    Pros

    Coworkers are typically very willing to share their knowledge.
    Cafeteria on site.

    Cons

    Few good supervisors in the entire lot, many managers and project supervisors have no abilities to lead and have no education in IT. Old, Outdated technology and processes at least 20 years behind in some respects. Communication and cooperation between departments is non existent. XP systems still operational in many locations!! Contractors and newer staff will take the fall for incompetent and cowardly leadership always who are just trying to stay quiet until they retire. Contractors are treated like 3rd class citizens and can be fired for anything by anyone at any time regardless of the good work they have done.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for project failures and take initiative with leading your staff, not just replacing them when they question your outdated processes. Ultimately you are causing valuable workers to leave and or be fired for providing their valuable input and feedback.

    Pros

    The benefits package, opportunities for growth, location, and modern technology.

    Cons

    The entry level jobs are under paid and the demand is very high. Completely different set of rules for middle managers/leaders. Many managers are not college educated, and nepotism is normal.

    Advice to Management

    Seek educated leaders that lead by example.

    Pros

    Great healthcare package. Employee engagement participation is encouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Develop your employees from within for supervisor/management positions. Create a trainee program for internal opportunities.

    Pros

    Generous time off, hourly pay differentials

    Cons

    Poor management, prevalent bullying and harassment that go unchecked, constantly treat employees like they are readily replaceable if they question work environment or conditions. "Good old boys" club environment.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like human beings, not robots. Hold people accountable. Stop using intimidation as a tactic to keep people from reporting legitimate concerns/issues. Treat all employees fairly without blatant favoritism.
