Need to reassess the Planetree concept
RD (Former Employee) –  1350 Washington BlvdJanuary 27, 2017
Worked at Stamford hospital for 4 yrs. My direct supervisor had obvious favorites among her staff. She was NOT Planetree at all. Would embarrass, humiliate, and literally scream at her employees. Her "boss" was never around to evaluate her performance. I have numerous inappropriate emails she sent.
Pros
Benefits were great
Cons
My immediate supervisor

Financial Data Co-ordinator/Office Assistant (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTDecember 29, 2016
Stamford Hospital was a great experience and I gained a lot of professional knowledge, electronic medical records systems.

Management was a great team of dedicated and supportive professionals, great team of co-workers kind and compassionate people.

The most rewarding part of my job were the patients to watch the healing process and to know that I was a part of each patients progress and healing.

The hardest part of my job was having to make the decision that growth and development was still needed in my career.
Pros
Great Employee Benefits
Cons
understaffing

Patient Access Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CTDecember 8, 2016
As a volunteer I was treated like gold. As a temporary hire to help while someone was on maternity leave I was treated like less than dirt. The human resource department does not have any clue how to treat their employees or potential employees and overall I regret having made the switch from volunteer to employee.
Pros
Great prices for meals at the Cafe`
Cons
Everything else

Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CTNovember 29, 2016
A typical day is fast-paced with an emphasis on learning and team-building. Management is easy to get into contact with, my co-workers are amazing. The most challenging aspect of my job is adapting to new protocols and needs of the patients. The best part of the job is connecting with and learning from my patients.

Histotechnologist (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CTNovember 22, 2016
Good job security but managements attitude is deplorable.
Lazy people are rewarded along with hard working people and when someone complains the refrain is "You don't have to work here if
you don't like it". Many have resigned and I feel its my time to go even though I've worked there for many years.
Pros
Great job security.
Cons
Too many lazy people who don't work.

Typical work day was 8-10 hours, 30% of the time was spent with patients. The rest was mostly problem solving.Working in a large environment with many patients is quite rewarding.

Run don't walk
Radiology tech (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTJuly 25, 2016
What was once a great place to work has been run to the ground due to poor leadership from direct management. Radiology is falling apart with employees resigning at a record pace or being fired without real reason. Senior admin either turns a blind eye or doesn't really care. There is no longer job security here. If your direct manager doesn't like, rest assured your days will be numbered. Gone are the days of verbal warnings and write-ups for simple human errors. Humans make mistakes right? Not here.

TSH is a well run organization. They have growth in the past years and have become a bigger part of the community. Employees enjoy great benefits and competitive pay. They also adapt to the community 's needs by embracing patient-centered care.

decent place to work
Staff Nurse, Patient Resources/Float Pool (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CTMarch 24, 2016
What once was a small community hospital, is now a regional center for health. Offers one-stop shopping for those in need of healthcare, offering a broad range of services. This is nice for patients, but I miss the former, where you are treated more as an individual. Overall, not a bad place to work, but too much emphasis is placed on catering to every superflous whim of the patient in order to have high patient satisfaction scores. This has an inverse relationship to nursing satisfaction.
Pros
great compensation benefits
Cons
too much emphasis on hospitality
