    I have been working at Upper Chesapeake Health part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy having a job where I can help people first hand and make a difference. For the most part all my interactions with fellow team members are always positive. We work together to make a positive impact in the lives of the patients and their families and it is very rewarding.

    Cons

    Very low pay and poor benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to spend less time in meeting and more time seeing how things are working in the day to day activities of the departments.

    I have been working at Upper Chesapeake Health full-time

    Pros

    It is a nice place to work - it has a family like atmosphere. Co workers care about one another.
    Flexibility of schedule .

    Cons

    You are unable to take off without pay if you need to be off for certain instances in order to maintain benefits if full time.

    Advice to Management

    For the most part, management listens to its employees for their needs. But like in any other place of employment, nothing is ever perfect.

    'Small town' woes. Mgmt decisions often unclear. The hospital caters to nursing and many RNs treat ancillary & subordinate staff poorly.

    I worked at Upper Chesapeake Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Convenient if you live in Harford County since there are two locations.

    Cons

    Few and far between opportunities for learning. This place will hire someone from outside 10 times before they look at their qualified people inside. The best way to advance is to leave and come back which is kind of sad.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time grooming from the inside and giving loyal team members opportunities instead of passing them over for people that don't care about this Hospital.

    I worked at Upper Chesapeake Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Best mentorship. Grow their employees within. Best leadership. CEO always keeps employees informed of all that is happening current and future so no surprises. very family oriented and like a second family. will always be indebted to and love my first real career family!! VP of HR is the best leader and stays involved right beside CEO. Patient and Family first!! Look thru patients eyes as if we or our family is laying there bc most likely it's bound to happen there! Will always go back if opportunity/need approaches! They take very good care of their employees!!! Top notch!

    Cons

    Could have more support for alternative and holistic modalities for team and patients as that seems to be first budget cut.

    Advice to Management

    C Suite Senior Leadership should have more trust in middle management and know they are in the position as experts and allow more autonomy and have their back more when it comes to teams and instead of throwing them under the bus due to not following up or having an answer on a long communicated issues be transparent and honest and say your manager has brought this up several several times however this isn't an easy fix... so that team doesn't feel like they are not being listened to... it then makes manager looks bad not trusted and as if they never communicated the issue! Ensure C suite Senior Leadership are required to have continuing training and are also held accountable to following policy and procedures and standards. Not to be mean but if someone has to have a mtg before their mtg then perhaps more prep shld happen like rounding to know tm names, real issues on units if that untrusting, and overall knowledge of the floors and processes and have a clear understanding of how things work so that finances are being put to good use and cuts are not made where the work is really being done at 200%. Again - no disrespect just constructive criticism as this is the best place and the best teams and managers and directors and VPs and CEO and support staff anyone cld ask for in a place to work!!! Could never have anything bad to say!!!! A++++++++++++++

    Pros

    Leadership is engaged and active; Managers/directors care about their employees and want them to succeed even if that means expanding their careers in a different department.

    Cons

    Pay is average due hospital revenue restrictions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with your current strategies.
