Stressful work environment
Respiratory Therapist/ECMO Specialist (Former Employee) –  Providence, RISeptember 1, 2017
Always understaffed, lack of support from leadership. The most enjoyable part of the job is fellow staff, but is stressed by poor management. Customer care suffers from lack of proper staff.

A Job As Important As Any
Central Transport - Dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Providence, RIOctober 13, 2015
In an environment such as the region's only level-one trauma center, it is paramount that each and every employee fully understands that their job--whether that be in the laundry room, transport department, surgical ICU, or Operating Room--is just as important to the smooth operation of the facility as the next. In using the cliché "clock" analogy, if but one of the gears inside falters, then the entire device is rendered useless.

In my department, Central Transport, we act as a single, cohesive unit to assure that patient-flow is regulated in a safe, efficient manner. The transporters work individually, under the general supervision of a well-respected and supportive management team, and are given an opportunity to come into contact a number of new faces on a daily basis, all coming from a vast multitude of backgrounds, each with respectively unique stories to share and conditions. It's this element of social-interaction which I personally believe presents the greatest 'pro' of all. In addition to this, the transporters will average a half-marathon's worth of walking per day! What an incredibly rewarding way to stay fit!
Pros
Social-interaction, benefits, on-site fitness center, great managers.
Cons
Variety of unavoidable "delays" during some, but certainly not all transports.

Spanish Staff Interpreter (Former Employee) –  All CampusesDecember 28, 2013
Moved to Rhode Island from another state to work for this organization. I was very disappointed with management. Don't expect any backing from HR or, if you're unionized, from the union, either. They're all in bed together. As for the rest of staff, they are wonderful and friendly. The work can be enjoyable and fulfilling as long as you don't make the mistake of expressing any opinions, feelings, or taking a stand for your basic dignity.
Pros
Broad experience in a major hospital, good working relationships with non-superior staff.
Cons
Management, politics
