      I have been working at Pen Bay Medical Center full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Some amazing and caring people work here, small enough that you know a lot of the patients.

      Cons

      -HR will not listen to you unless you are a supervisor or manager. -requesting PTO time is a joke because you will never get the time you want off unless you are a supervisor, even if you request it month in advance. -doctors notes don't matter if you are sick, a day out is a day out no excuse. Even if you're in the ER. -more than seven minutes late is marked as a missed day and you're still expected to work. -favoritism...

      Advice to Management

      If your sick with a doctor's note it shouldn't count against you. The EVS department is so broken.

      I have been working at Pen Bay Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Have met some wonderful and caring people here, and have learned a lot

      Cons

      Favoritism, inexperienced and overextended mid-level management making staffing/workload decisions that don't make practical sense

      Advice to Management

      Avoid favoritism and age discrimination at all costs...to do otherwise will result in massive turnover within your departments, unless that's what you want. Veteran staff is invaluable to this organization, and is the real driving force behind getting things accomplished.

      I worked at Pen Bay Medical Center

      Pros

      The employees care deeply about their patients, which makes working here feel like you are directly impacting the health of the community. I worked with some really incredible professionals, a true community hospital in the best sense.

      Cons

      I worked here for three years and there were three different CEO's in that time. I think it could be said that the quality of the leadership went from good to horrible. The current CEO lacks transparency and to be honest, a personality, which made the employees very uneasy about the direction of the organization and the security of their jobs.

      Advice to Management

      Pen Bay could benefit from a strong leader with a clear vision and voice who can instill confidence and enthusiasm among the employees.

      I have been working at Pen Bay Medical Center

      Pros

      It is less demanding than most other hospitals. Flexibility of work hours awarded in most cases. Working with staff is pleasant most of the time.

      Cons

      Lack of staff at times. Patients can be difficult at times and takes a toll on your work load. Medical supplies not well organized in Supply room.

      Advice to Management

      Hire more staff. Order more medical supplies and organize the stock room. Do not listen to gossip and rumors and then reprimand employees. Always hear from both sides!
