Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Rockville General Hospital – July 31, 2015
I learned how to work with many different personalities,characteristics,workflow processes. Also patients with different needs and concerns. I could balance most anything I encountered and kept the atmosphere positive.
Great co-workers, we all worked well together.
At times short staffed and stress was pretty high.
This network has become solely focused on money, and not the compassionate care & quality customer service it preaches. Reliable and hardworking employees often go unappreciated & unacknowledged. Recent layoffs without any notice. Management that barely gives the time of day. Often understaffed, lack of coverage, positions not filled when employees leave. No breaks, no 401K match, few raises, employee paid STD coverage, no incentives.
Clinical (Former Employee) – Several – January 29, 2019
This company rewards those that brown nose and have friends in high places, hence the majority of the reviews you'll see. Those that work hard are punished for their reliability and will have to pick up the slack for those that don't.
VERY POOR MANAGEMENT ESPECIALLY AT VERNON ENDOCRINOLOGY! No chance for a decent raise the company itself is all about money not about the patients this is from a former employee who knows what goes on behind the scenes. STAY FAR AWAY FROM ECHN as a patient and as a future employee. JUST DONT!!!
Working as an RN at ECHN has helped me to grow as a nurse. The unit has many experienced nurses that are willing to help new nurses in developing the management of difficult patients. This may not be true on all units but it is definitely true on the unit that I work on. ECHN has also allowed me to work with a degree of autonomy.
Staff Ultrasound Technologist (Former Employee) – South Windsor, CT – July 9, 2018
Long time employee with overall positive experience at ECHN. Typical struggles seen are common in many healthcare organizations. Good group of coworkers who care very much about the community they serve and for each other.
Staff member at school (Current Employee) – Manchester, CT – April 26, 2018
There is a particularly bad workplace environment at the Manchester Hospital Clinical Day School. The administration constantly undermines the teachers and provides no support in the face of unreasonable parents, and occasionally violent students. Consider this carefully and make your own decisions.
Not enough training what so ever-thrown into position-no support-very disorganized-poor management-unrealistic high expectations then being written up for not keeping up, high stressed, short staffed- very short of help then responsibilities increase, untruthful coworkers, losing patients-poor work flow, not employee friendly, for profit company, MD's can't even keep up seeing usually over 25 pts/day (20 minutes each), set up for failure- no raises, and ongoing history of being unprofessional, impossible work place.
no bathroom breaks, high expectations, impossible work load, lack of staff replacement, poor management
