Authorization Specialist- Radiology Department (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CTMarch 29, 2016
Great place to work. Management is present, works with team on a hands on basis. Benefits are great. Plan Tree philosophy works well within the walls of Stamford Hospital which is a great help towards the patients recovery.

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

A Fall from Grace
Social Worker (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTApril 6, 2014
Senior Management needs to take a very long, hard look at Directors in the hospital. In one department in particular, employees are resigning at a frenetic pace...largely due to the immediate leadership of the department. While hospital espouses the Planetree philosophy and has programs encouraging Trust, administration's passionate culture towards employees and the trust employees have towards superiors is non existent. Human Resources seemingly turns a blind eye to the fact that employee retention is poor. Make no mistake, this was once a great place to work.....not this way anymore.
Pros
good pay and benefits. hospital is growing physically.
Cons
poor morale. chronically short staffed. poor career ladder. poor middle management.

Lab Tech/Phlebotomist (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CTMay 20, 2014
Stamford Hospital is a wonderful place to work. Job security is stable. Co-workers are easy to get along with and demonstrate team work often. The co-workers are as if its your family at work. Stamford hospital has very good benefits as well. The most enjoyable part is the co-workers are great. The downside of Stamford hospital is the management, they show favoritism towards employees. There is no growth was so ever in the laboratory. They had a med technician program open for people to grow and they would secretly tell certain workers when to apply or just give them opportunities without posting the position.
Pros
great benefits, friendly environment
Cons
management has favorites, and absolutley no growth

Back Office Infrastructure Engineer (Current Employee) –  StamfordJune 23, 2015
work is typical 8 to 5 with maintenance nights every other months.
Management may be a slight micro but it can be avoided. Co workers are great and bringing in younger group and getting rid of the old, hardest part of the job is deal with folks that have been here for a long time

Tech (Current Employee) –  HospitalJune 5, 2012
The overall atmosphere at Stamford Hospital is wonderful, great people who really care for their patients. And it's a clean hospital.

However favoritism by direct managers runs rampant and it's just sickening and makes it a miserable place to work. There's no appreciation given for going above and beyond while the unethical, nasty employees who love to complain about others are rewarded. Planetree? Not so much. No opportunity for advancement. Barely ever get my 30 minute lunch (that's docked from pay, by the way)

GREAT benefits and hospital administration goes above and beyond for their employess with perks like ice cream and annual hospital BBQs/holiday dinners, wish it happened by the lower level too. Sigh

Micro-management to a detriment
Desktop Engineer/Support (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTJanuary 8, 2015
The IS managers do Not have a clear plan to stay up to date with software/hardware. Using outdated Software and hardware.
It is a constant micro-management nightmare, with managers enabling end-users to bypass the use of the Helpdesk Queue by constantly re-prioritizing tasks with no regard to previous requests or time tables. More than one major project has been postponed (more than once.)
My co workers and I would work to resolve end user issues. In the face of other departments causing system wide issues.
Pros
discounts around stamford at local businesses
Cons
management.

Great benefits and a great place to work IF you have a great manager
Employee (Current Employee) –  Satellite locationJuly 31, 2012
As an employee, the best part of working at Stamford Hospital are the great benefits. Managers seem to be exempt from the "Planetree" philosophy which the hospital seems to embrace. Management is allowed to have obvious favorites within their department and no one seems to care. Management seems to have free reign within their department. Whatever happened to employee rights?
Pros
benefits are terrific
Cons
favoritism among managers, favorite employees get great reviews and bonuses
