Terrible place to work unless you are related to management
Fiscal (Former Employee) – Finance – November 8, 2015
The company has great benefits and pay. I was laid off due to reorganization after many years of service. They don't care about their employees, only the bottom line numbers. People who work there are cruel and will do or say anything in order to keep themselves above anyone. If you work there, do not trust anybody.
Behavioral unit (Current Employee) – New York – March 22, 2016
Stimulating environment but extremely political. It is all about who you know and who has been working there the longest and not your qualifications and your hard work. So some get away with everything and others get stuck with the worst shifts, patients, units etc... And watch who you talk to ... Very much like high school ... Disappointing place overall. High turnover.

I am one of two billers who review and correct outpatient Medicare claims to be billed on a daily basis. I have learned a lot about billing many kinds of insurances. No comment on management. Some co-workers have become good friends while others act like children. The hardest part of my job is to get my own work done in a timely manner on a daily basis while also helping fellow co-workers with their billing issues. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting a claim paid after several denials.
Patient Access Services Supervisor (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – August 27, 2012
My typical day at work was preparing new policies and procedures for my department, along with may other supervisory duities. I have learned keep an open mind to the different ways I and the corporation could improve productivity and reach company goals. I always think it is very important that management work together in making final decisions and always get others input. My employees were very hard working and respectful. The hardest part of the job was making sure all my employees were satisfied with the departments rules and regulations. My job was very rewarding. I enjoy working with people and enjoy helping them in anyway I can.

Patient Access Service Representative (Former Employee) – Buffalo NY – October 19, 2014
I worked for ECMC for three years. ECMC has no room for advancement. Instead of advancing internal employees like they say in employee orientation the supervisor hires external friends and family. I have not seen one employee advance that was not a friends and family of the supervisor. This place is run by family and friends if you question any promotions then you will be gone and another friend will take your position.
ECMC is county which means a civil service exam. Every exam is suppose to be available once a year. I worked two years before the exam was available. When your first hired your provisional and placed on six months of probation. After the exam scores are release you are placed back on six months probation before you are permanent. If you are not permanent ECMC can release or terminate you for any reason they choice and the union can not do nothing to help you in your fight for your position because you are not a permanent employee.

I worked in housekeeping although the pay was good their was no room to get out of that position or growth . I have degrees and over qualified and applied for other positions and kept getting denied. I've been there for almost two years and I'm a very good worker come on time and rarely ever call off. Managment in housekeeping sucks too you legit have to kiss their butts not to be overworked , they show so much favoritism and not to mention the rest of the hospital looks at us like we're scum compared to other departments. The coworkers are ok but some act childish like we are in high school
They don't care about their employees or their families.

If you work for this corporation don't get hurt while working for them. They tell you in orientation that all will be taken care of and you have job security if you get hurt. However as soon as you go out on compensation it's another story. They send you a letter in the mail telling you you're a valued employee to reapply after you are finished with tour workers compensation and are released. Then they don't even look at your application after you reapply telling you they need someone with more qualifications. Also trying to find work anywhere else is impossible as well. I was very good at my position I gave it mg whole heart and went above and beyond to do my work and anything else that was asked of me! I provided more than excellent service to residents, patients and their families. I worked very well with my coworkers and worked many overtime hours to cover for people who were unable to come to work. Residents and families loved me! So this corporation does not care and will not take you back if you get hurt. They hold it against you even though legally they are not supposed to. There's always a way around it red tape is pretty sticky and hard to see through.
