    I have been working at Mid Coast Hospital part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    calm atmosphere, everybody knows your name, beautiful accommodations, great and helpful staff, time to give great one to one care

    Cons

    Change happens very slowly, some staff have been there a long time and like the way they do things making it difficult for good change, , the best, newest, brightest, evidence based ways of doing things haven't made their way up 295. all communication is given out on days, . We don't use self scheduling on our unit and I was not told that until after I was hired so that totally did away with any of my work/life balance. I never get a holiday w/e with my family. I can't use the benefits because I live in Portland and all of the discounts are in Portland.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage nursing staff to go to professional development and be revitalized.. Spend on staff that will stay and less on locums, have per diem work their regular shifts, less money

    Any way to save money is great with me. MidCoast is only 1/2 an hour from Portland but the pay is $ 10.00 less. Its also 1 hour south of Augusta and its pay is 10.00 less. It really needs to compete with the other other hospitals. What will happen is that the older RN's when they retire will not be replaced by younger RN's because the pay is so different compared to other hospitals. I think that having per diems on the books but never making them work their required shifts doesn't make any sense to me. It seems like it has used up all of our wages for filling our holes . I know I haven't had a raise since I started in 2012. In fact I went backward when I went from per diem to hourly. That has always seemed wrong considering that I was taking a $10 pay cut. I believe other people have received raises???

    I have been working at Mid Coast Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My boss is great. The pay isn't too bad and vacation time is good. Flexibility is pretty good too. Not a whole lot of advancement but it's a health organization.

    Cons

    Senior leadership doesn't listen to associates and have their head in the clouds. Benefits suck for a health organization. Directors run programs into the ground. When outsiders are telling patients not to choose a service because the managements are trouble, there's issues!

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your associates when they tell you there is an issue! Don't assume because we aren't VPs or directors that we don't know what is going on. Some of your so called VP or "executive" directors aren't doing you any justice.

    Pros

    Team Oriented, Progressive, fast paced, learning environment, encourages diversity and discourages group think. Very professional, aims for the highest of licensures and the best talent.

    Cons

    Short Staffed, runs lean, inconsistent messages at times, lacks infrastructure in certain programs. It is a hospital, so there is elitism among Dr's and they are not help to the same standards in regards to respect.

    Advice to Management

    Groom young talent. Look within the organization for people to promote outside of their known offices

    I worked at Mid Coast Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues were great and family like atmosphere

    Cons

    When taking over Parkview, they lost sight of the employees and specific care of the patients- it became all about the money. Certain employees that had been there for a long time were awful and drove out staff especially in the emergency department
