Nashoba
Staff Nurse (Current Employee) –  Ayer, MAMarch 9, 2017
This job was very stressful in that we went through 3 bosses and I don't know how many nurses in 2 years. No-one seemed to be on the same page as far as procedures and how to handle certain situations. A policy would be put into place, then it would be changed in an instant. The environment was not very stable and the job itself was stressful enough without all that added chaos. I really loved my patients but found that most of my time was spent documenting because I had 10 of them with multiple medical issues as well as psychiatric. Pay was not comencerative to job.
Pros
Great coworkers
Cons

Terrible place to be employed
medical assistant (Former Employee) –  Ayer, MANovember 20, 2015
If you don't fit in with certain groups, you will be made to feel like an outcast. People will talk about you behind your back and spread rumors. Adults behave like adolescents and management lacks any type of sense whatsoever and will side with employees that have been there longer than you no matter what even if you are being harassed. People will set you up to make it look like you are making mistakes when you really didn't do anything wrong. No understanding from management if you have sick children or have issues outside of work life. In addition, compensation is pathetic regardless of how many years experience or the type of educational background you have. You will hear about new hires fresh out of school getting paid more than you when you have years experience including a degree.
Pros
Patients
Cons
Poor management, poor compensation, no room for advancement

Management not open to new ideas
RN, NP (Former Employee) –  Diabetes CenterAugust 1, 2015
If you want to work in a environment that is open to incorporating new ideas and ways of doing things this is not the place to work for.
Many employees especially managers have been in positions for many years, have other staff members do their work for them and have very poor work ethics. I have been told by other employees that these people are "lifers".
They do not do evidence based nursing.
The environment can be quite hostile for RN and NP's especially when the MD's like to yell at you for things unrelated to the care that is being given.
Coverage for professional conferences is 1 day a year
Vacation is 5-7 days and many staff are sent home when volume is low even and have to use their vacation in these circumstances.
No professional atmosphere.
Pay is basic, coverage for professional expenses, RN, NP, professional memberships must be argued for.
Stay clear if you want to grow your career
This especially includes the Clinics that manage Diabetes
Pros
you get paid your full salary most weeks
Cons
poor professional growth

Least professional organization that I have worked for
Medical Professional (Current Employee) –  Nashoba Valley HospitalNovember 30, 2014
This is a struggling hospital with several long time employees who have not kept up with advances in medical/pharmaceutical therapy who really affect the performance of this hospital. There are many caring and hardworking doctors, nurses, support personnel and technicians, most relatively new hires. Unfortunately there are some bad apples, most in supportive care roles, that have no business working at a hospital..... without exception these are long term employees who feel they are untouchable. Unfortunately, the bad apples decrease morale and make everyone else's day harder and negatively impact patient care. The hospital is struggling financially and relies on part-time people to cut costs. Continuity of care suffers greatly. . Since the employees who have been there a long time have full time schedules they can dictate what happens as there are too many part-time employees who can't really can't keep track of the "bad apples."
I would suggest everyone's job description and duties be reevaluated. Many long time employees need more work or their schedules cut as they don't have enough to do and spend their time foisting off their work on someone else, while everyone else works and works and works.

Salary is way below market. Unless, of course, if you are a long time employee.
Pros
Small hospital you get to know the staff, good lunch in cafeteria
Cons
Too many part-time people wearing too many hats. Long-time employees putting in their time.

Friendly environment that brings everyone together to work as a team
Radiologic Technologist (Current Employee) –  Ayer, MAJune 11, 2014
Nashoba Valley Medical Center really encourages everyone to be friendly to staff members and patients. The hospital trains every employee to say hi to everyone you pass in the hall to create a friendly and family style environment. This is a small hospital where everyone knows everyone and creating a friendly environment makes it easier for people to get to know each other and work more efficiently together.

EVS Tech (Former Employee) –  Ayer MaMarch 8, 2011
The co-workers are nice people. Worked the night shift which was quiet and you could get work done. The problem with working nights is that supervisors are not there to see work being done, they hear stuff third hand.
Pros
nice people
Cons
for profit company
