At Maine Medical Partners, I very much enjoyed it in the beginning...
Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (Former Employee) – Portland, ME – May 9, 2014
When I first started the job, everything was great! I had the best supervisor (well organized with very good leadership skills), and a very good teaching instructor as a co-worker/supervisor. After about 1 year of being there, things changed when a co-worker, with only a year of experience, moved into the supervisory position (with no prior supervisory experience at all), and the office moral and financial needs changed drastically. The previous supervisor moved into a different position, so it was very difficult for everyone during this transition. Moral became very low, as well as support with any technical questions due to the fact that the new supervisor had not only less experience than most sonographers there, but also because he was just thrown into a position that he had no training or experience in, thus making it impossible for him to help other below him. The budget for the office was drastically mismanaged, resulting in people getting "let go" and or "terminated" for made up reasons, ultimately allowing them the opportunity to at least get unemployment, yet still without employment, benefits, etc. I hear that it has gotten a lot better, and with the awesome sonographers there, I am sure that even though it might take a while to improve, the sonographers really make it worth working there.
some great co-workers and a couple very supportive, seasoned sonographers that will help you grow
horrible management, the lead doctor has a habit or being very cynical, saying things like he wishes he was dead and inappropriate comments to patients, not organized (the supervisor would ask us what the schedule looked like), no breaks.
