ECHN - Vernon
Office Assistant (Former Employee) –  Vernon, CTMarch 6, 2019
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.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to list

Clinical (Former Employee) –  SeveralJanuary 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.
Pros
Great benefits and time off

Office Assistant (Former Employee) –  Vernon, CTOctober 26, 2018
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!!!

Horrible management
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) –  East Hartford, CTSeptember 28, 2018
Fake and ignorant management. They promise you one thing then pretend they never said it. Also, certain doctors are impossible to work with and have malpractice suits awaiting to happen.

REGISTERED NURSE (Current Employee) –  Manchester, CTAugust 16, 2018
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.
Pros
flexible schedule, good work/home life balance
Cons
not many raises

Avoid the Clinical Day School at All Costs
Staff member at school (Current Employee) –  Manchester, CTApril 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.
Pros
Good dining room if you can afford it
Cons
Where do I begin?

Office Assistant (Current Employee) –  South Windsor, CTOctober 25, 2017

Good place to work
Assistant Director of Financial Services (Former Employee) –  Manchester, CT 06040September 24, 2017
ECHN is a decent place to work in the local area and was recently bought out by a large hospital network. This has allowed the company to provide better wages and modernize their facilities.
Pros
Small hospital network with family atmosphere
Cons
Stressful work environment at times
