Negative Paranoid Environment with Decent Pay and Benefit Package
Medical (Former Employee), North Stonington – August 18, 2013
Pros: wages, benefits, patient care
Cons: micro-managing, tense employees, changes for change?
Sounded like an ideal position offering fair wages and decent benefits. Management micro-manages (I suspect this emanates at the CEO level). Many changes with an uncertain goal. It became clear why the majority of employees appeared tense and unhappy. On a positive note clients seem to receive good competent and compassionate care.

Pros: great experience
Cons: long hours
I was a Medical Assistant here and this was a drug and alcohol rehab hospital. I would answer calls and do insurance intake for patients. When patients would come in I would do their vitals and breath alcohol testing. I enjoyed this job for the most part, I was impressed with the management team, they were mostly all recovering themselves so they showed – more... their compassion and understanding. They treated their patients with the utmost respect and dignity. It was a great experience. – less
Medical Assistant (Current Employee), North Stonington, CT – April 11, 2012
I love the job that I perform and really enjoy the staff. A typical day at work includes Q15 checks on all clients, one-on-one, admissions, administrative work, vitals, and interacting with clients while keeping a professional stand point.
Cons: supervision lacking, no direction, not client centered.
It was very difficult to work for a profit organization where our client base was improvised, on assistant from the government and Stonington Institutes focus was on making money not care for the clients. There was a large turn over of employees with all leadership coming from the CEO. The individual programs have very little say so in the day to day – more... activities make employee moral very poor. – less
