    I have been working at Newton-Wellesley Hospital (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great front line employees who really care about their patients. Pay is within normal ranges. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of turnover in the executive suite the past few years and the instability is making everyone nervous. Tensions are high. Christmas bonuses are gone. The past few years there have been 2% across the board raises with nothing extra for exceeding job requirements. Partner's is pushing systems and policies that work for the big city hospitals and ignoring the needs of the smaller community hospitals.

    I have been working at Newton-Wellesley Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free on site parking or bus/train pass. Great customer service. Patient-Family centered care. NWH takes patient/family/visitor feedback very seriously and reviews all survey results submitted by patients.

    Cons

    Pay is low, no room for growth in many departments. Annual increase is only 2%. This is a community hospital in the middle of two of the wealthiest towns in MA thus you will encounter very "uppity" personalities. The hospital leadership and staff is not very diverse.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more perks to employees since you can not offer higher pay. Have more hospital sponsored events to show employees your appreciation. Provide mentor programs for young professionals.

    I have been working at Newton-Wellesley Hospital part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    NWH is a beautiful hospital in a great area with the most incredible nurses, doctors and support staff. If I had to choose a hospital to be a patient in, I would feel safe and comfortable at NWH.

    Cons

    Like any job there are always employees who know how to trick the system and do the smallest amount of work to float under the radar.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, especially your nurses when they are telling you that there's a real problem with a staff member.
