Horrible Workplace Environment & Management
Finance Dept (Former Employee) –  Visiting Nursing Association of WNYJanuary 22, 2017
Worst company I ever worked for. Everyone in the admin offices are nasty, negative, lazy, incompetent, and most of the employees are protected by the union (so they can get away with doing the bare minimum and then you will be subjected to doing their work for them even though it's not relevant to finance.) Management is absolutely horrendous in the finance dept. Extremely high turnover that's why you see them keep posting for positions in the finance department. The accounting manager lacks the ability to manage people, explain things well, presents themself as a slob, and is extremely unprofessional. Everyone you will have to encounter in other departments will walk all over you and treat you terribly and you are not allowed to stick up for yourself. Everyone is in edge because they fire people a lot. The secretary in the finance department is an absolutely rude, arrogant, judgmental, and an overall nasty woman. She will make your worklife extremely difficult to bear if she doesn't like your personal life choices. The workload is insane and extremely inefficient. Management won't change anything about it even though they encourage all new hires to suggest ideas about "streamlining" the process. You are expected to work a lot of overtime even though they swear to all new hires they are only expected 10 hours of overtime max per month. They will overwhelm you with the work of about 2-3 people. My advice is to avoid working there at all costs. The stress and amount of disrespect you will encounter is not worth the money or benefits. Avoid at all costs or learn the hard way.
Pros
No pro's at all
Cons
Horrible management, high turnover, people treat you terribly, avoid at all costs or you will learn the hard way!!!

Supervisor/Manager (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NYJanuary 20, 2017
Organization is in need of some new upcoming professionals. Operating systems are 10 years behind. Management is not future oriented and have been around in the same role over 30 years. Need of a new vision

overall great company to work for not such a great department to work for
Safety and Security Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NYJanuary 16, 2017
I start my day with administrative duties with in my department, log information into a dispatch log and dispatch security officers to calls, investigations, reports, patrol campus grounds inside and out. address any safety concerns, attend department and hospital operations meetings when needed.

Management in my department is micro managed, not such a good environment to work under, make themselves feel indispensable. will not allow others to learn and grow with in the department, even as a lower level supervisor.

Co-workers- could be a stronger working rapport with in the department among co workers, if management allowed.

The worst part of my job is working under a management, that are all out for themselves, not looking out for the best interest the department as a whole, working under micro management.always feeling your job is in constant jeopardy.

Helping a patient find their belongings, helping a visitor find their vehicle when they cant remember where they parked, escorting an employee to and from their vehicle when having personal problems being able to give the comfort and security and gratifying moment to that patient, visitor and employee at that particular moment.

The public safety department in the hospital is the go to non medical department we get a lot of calls, questions, and expectations of the department to resolve concerns and issues are high.
Pros
helping people, keeping them safe and secure
Cons
as supervisor i am at times interrupted when on, or unable to get a lunch break

Nurse Assistant - MFS too (Former Employee) –  North Tonawanda, NYDecember 11, 2016
Well managed organization with many opportunities to advance your career. tuition assistance is a bonus. Wish there was a northtowns location with more job opportunities. DeGraff used to be a pleasant and bright place to work in the 80's and 90's - it's so dark and depressing now. It definitely has potential. It would be nice to bring some life back into it, have it provide more services to its community like it did back in the day. The grounds could use a face lift, its more of an eyesore now unfortunately.
Pros
Excellent benefit package
Cons
Locations - most have lengthy commute

Pca
PCA, medical assistant and cna (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYApril 26, 2016
Not a good place to work always laying off or bumping no job security even for those with over ten years.
Okay pay. Great pto. Management is horrible, do not care about patient care. Some nurse are okay. Vitals every four hours draw blood do ekgs and EMR. Assist in personal care and what ever the nurses may ask I'm between your other duties.
Pros
Pto
Cons
No job security will lay you off or bump you around

Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NYApril 20, 2016
Kaleida has great benefits and fair pay. It is currently trying to change it's culture to a more effective and friendly workplace. Kaleida's demands of employees has grown but change, like in most atmospheres, is difficult to accept by some staff. There measures will most likely lead to success. This is a fast paced atmosphere, much is expected of you. Do not come here if you want to skate by.

Great food in the hospital cafeteria!
nurse (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYApril 19, 2016
Avoid this company. They consistently change out management, provide no leadership or training. It is a nightmare! They will routinely change out staff before they are vested.
Pros
Great food in hospital cafeteria.
Cons
paid parking, clueless management
