    I have been working at Yale New Haven Health System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fair pay. I make nearly $20 an hour for a position that does not require a college degree. Because I do have a degree, I believe YNHH added to my hourly wage. Annual raises can be up to 5% for my position (maybe even more?), and if certain performance goals are met, a yearly bonus up to 3% paid in cash in December! Great management and organization. They want you to succeed.

    Cons

    No cons, as I believe YNHH is excellent!

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Yale New Haven Health System full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Mission of the organization, most of the caregivers are extraordinary. Retirement plan is very good

    Cons

    Organization is too large and executive leadership is over their heads. Healthcare benefits had been getting worse over the last 5-6 years. HR department is inept.! The review process is s waste of time. Most of the pressure is on the middle level people while the Directors and VPs earn $300k plus. Finance division has deteriorated over the last three years under new CFO. Everyone that has been there a while hates it but they know they can t earn the $ anywhere else.
