As a manager and future director or Vice President I believe that everyone is still just as important as the next. To be a great leader, you must posses certain skills such as good listening skills, compassion and enthusiastic. As a future leader I will become the best possible role model for current and future employees.

Psychiatric Social Work Intern (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – August 12, 2017
A typical day is different each time which is exciting and challenging. I learned a lot thru my work there I had little experience with management as an intern but have heard concerns from others. The hardest part of the job is trying to help folks that can be in emotional crisis when they meet you. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to help people get well and being a resource for good to them in any way possible!
Used to be an enjoyable atmosphere until money became more important than patient care.
Administrative control (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – May 24, 2017
ECMC is a wonderful choice for trauma/ burn care. Not so much for everyday problems. Inadequate for psychiatry and elder care. The last 6 years I worked with the elderly and they are very poorly cared for, verging on neglect and abuse.
Senior Clerk Typist (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – April 3, 2017
Working at this facility was very challenging in a positive way, some days were more stressful than others but, I could utilize my education and skills proficiently; while learning the operations of an emergency’s room level 1 trauma center. My co-workers and management made the stressful times manageable with their empathy, understanding, and teamwork, this made the sometime chaotic environment manageable. With all the stress and chaos, I looked forward to going to work, I never knew what I was going to encounter when I got there, which made it not only challenging but, exciting.
Community Mental Health Technician (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – March 10, 2017
During my time there i learned various ways as well as new opportunities working with developmentally disabled children and adults. I managed a house with 6 children suffering from symptoms of Autism which was the hardest part of the job. However, it was the most interesting part of the job due to ability to make change in the kids lives. That to me was the best part of the job.

Love my current job but research funding for it has been depleting
Medical Assistant./Office Manager (Current Employee) – Department of Medicine – December 1, 2015
Enjoy working with doctors and patients every day and doing patient teaching. I do all travel arrangements and reimbursement acquisition for a very busy physician who is the Chief of Medicine and a hypertension specialist who travels the globe lecturing. I manage the office and am also responsible for hiring new research fellows locally and globally. This is a very interesting part of my job as it allows me to meet new people from around the world and help them to achieve medical residencies in the United States. I am also involved in clinical research studies in hypertension, heart failure & diabetes. I have had the opportunity to do a bit of traveling when new studies are initiated (for training) and this has been a great learning experience. My salary is paid by research funds and this funding has been decreasing over the last few years and will likely continue to move in this direction.
Housekeeping attendant (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – September 23, 2015
Easy place to work as long as you are focused on getting the job done. Alot of friendly communication an order to ensure the best experience possible for patients. Co workers understand that there must be a certain amount of team work presented at the work place an order to meet and be on par with the high standards of working at a hospital regardless of department.
I enjoy working with my co-workers and the management team.
Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – August 11, 2015
ECMC is a great place to work. I am currently working in CPEP, psychiatric emergency program as a register nurse. It is a rewarding job. I am involved in the decision making process of the care of our patients. Sometimes it can be challenging. However it is worth when you have helped someone who is in a crisis.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – July 13, 2015
Started at ECMC since I graduated from nursing school and have learned so much. Unfortunately, working short staffed is always a problem. I enjoy my job, however, it would be more pleasant if the staff was not burned out due to working short.
Food Service Worker (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – June 16, 2015

Caterer (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – May 18, 2015
A typical day at ECMC usually starts around 345 pm during the week , and 645 am on the weekend. When I get there each day I have to go through the patients menus to make sure their diets are correct , and i also have to make sure everyone has a menu. What I have learned working at ECMC is, you have to have expert level of patience when dealing with patients and their families. We are there to please them and make sure they're happy. My managers are all very professional, understanding people. I do not believe there is anything hard about my job. As long as you pay attention and read your diet sheet correctly everything runs very smooth. The most enjoyable part of my job i would have to say is just seeing the patients happy, you never know being nice to them could make their whole entire stay at the hospital enjoyable. It also could help make them feel better letting them know that someone genuinely cares about them can change their entire outlook on the hospital as a whole.
