RSA II (Former Employee) – Springfield, MA – April 11, 2019
no benefits, low pay, # of hours per week unpredictable I worked in food services - the patients were wonderful, I learned a lot from them, always short staffed, supervisors had favorites who were given get hours and were no asked to do much
Manager (Current Employee) – Springfield, MA – April 9, 2019
As a teaching facility, there are so many different experiences to have as a staff person that it would take years to become bored. There are many opportunities to expand your knowledge base as a staff person and work in whatever area interests you most. Middle management is a different story. The hospital does promote from within which is a bonus in that you know your crew. The hardest part is learning the technical "management" aspects. There is no real education for new managers on how to navigate such things as HR or budgets. If you are able to connect with a strong mentor, you'll have no worries, but if you don't, the day to day tasks can be frustrating. I've learned from my experiences here is that you are never to old to learn and it is in everyone's best interest to keep up on changes and progress in your discipline. Know your business!
positive patient experiences, many learning opportunities
trying to have too many different disciplines under one director
Interventional Radiology is the WORST department EVER
Interventional Radiology Technologist (Former Employee) – Springfield, MA – March 7, 2019
The IR team at Baystate has the worst team player mentality than any place I have EVER been employed at. The managers are well aware and don’t change a thing! If I were you I would stay as far away from that department as you possibly can!!
Patient Service Representative (Former Employee) – Springfield, MA – February 23, 2019
Baystate allowed me the opportunity to grow and gain experience , through interacting with coworkers and patients. It allowed me character build, problem solving and time management among building great relationships.
Learned many good quality skills and built good relationships wtih patients, coworkers and providers
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Springfield, MA – February 22, 2019
It was great to work there. Great people, friendly co- workers and they have special events for the hard working employees. Managers are alright at sometimes understanding your situation but this place is a fast paced and doesn't hesitate to fire people.
Operation Associate in the emergency room (Current Employee) – Springfield, MA – February 19, 2019
Is mostly intense work but manageable, but if you like a fast pace setting this is the place to be. Management is great! The hardest part of the job is the loss of a patient, no matter what the age is.
Not enough breaks, cafeteria food and healthcare prices are not great
I had a great experience working at BayState, and worked with a class group of co-workers, we were more like a family. I worked along side of a very good management team and enjoyed the CEO and how he operated the business.
Poorly managed hospital system with incompetent managers
Physician (Current Employee) – Springfield, MA – November 25, 2018
Highly malignant organization. Management is inefficient with lots of people in high level positions who probably should t be there. Patient care is secondary to profit with little clinical time to properly address patient concerns. Mediocre benefits
