The last CEO decided to move the company from Oakdale to downtown Minneapolis, no change to wages, just an hour commute, then he quit the company. Overall the job was good, though a lot of the company policies are somewhat questionable. Benefits were good, though the medical had really sucked in the past three years.

I've learned everybody's life and situations are different. the hardest part of the was making sure that the customers were satisfied. Overall I had a wonderful experience working at Ecmc I met a lot of interesting people.
Hospital Aide (current) (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – June 16, 2018
Fun friendly educated environmental I plan to stay there for a very long time my co workers are great staffing is unorganized managers and some RNs doesn’t speak to employees with diginity overall great place to retired I heard.
Not impressed with the company. It is not family oriented anymore, and you are stuck in Mpls unless you have other means of transportation. HR does not know what we do at all and they classify on a two word description.
long commute, no transparency, management tells you nothing
RN CHARGE NURSE (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – February 2, 2018
very stressful job, lots of work place violence , no team work like it should be, over all the nursing home part of the company is a terrible place to work for. Most nurses who work there transfer to the hospital within one year.
If I hadn't been laid off, I'd still be there - lots of amazing and wonderful people who work there. There is some flux in the culture currently due to many changes over the past two years, but the benefits are great and the executive team is working on the culture part. I'd go work there again. :)
Representative (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – December 9, 2017
Most managment seemed supportive when I mentioned that I wanted to advance in the company. I found many mentors and people willing to help. Due to the campuses closing, my position was eliminated. I will miss working there.
Fun place to work. Everyday was fun and competitive. ECMC always has great incentives and did a great job at motivating their employees. The base pay was not great but you had potential for huge bonuses. I would have stayed forever if they didn't relocate to Minneapolis.

I had fun and meet lots of new people, it was a great experience and I would and have recommended it to a friend. I loved seeing all those people, and it made my day to go to work and see everybody's faces.
Certified Medical Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – September 25, 2017
As a professional in both healthcare and staff management I find this hospital is very driven in "who you know gets you the higher paid jobs" while a more qualified person is overlooked. There are charge nurses and team leaders that have no to little management experience thrown into positions that are over their heads or understanding of how to lead a department. It is unfortunate because there are some very intelligent and competent employees who are driven and take pride in their work. This is a level 1 trauma hospital in WNY and as a community we take pride in that. The employees tends to be left to fend for themselves, the management rarely if ever stands behind their teams, and more often then not they will be so understaffed that the patients in clinics suffer for it along with the employees.
Rad Tech/CT Technologist (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – August 11, 2017
The typical work day is very busy and exciting, the skills I have learned from working there are great and have prepared me greatly for experiences ahead. The management were dedicated to their jobs and made sure you gained everything necessary to perform well on the job, for the most part the management were always easily approachable and would take time out with you when needed. Workplace culture was caring and excellence in your profession. Sometimes the hectic pace could be the hardest part of the job, but knowing you were part of the process to helping in giving the patient great care and helping to heal them was the most enjoyable part of the job.
Licensed Mental Health Counselor (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – July 10, 2017
Job is dangerous and more like babysitting than therapy job, or social work. High Risk situations daily and RNs have all power in the hospital. Some staff is very good, other too preoccupied with their own drama !
Medical Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – June 2, 2017
I loved the diversity of the people I worked with. I learned a lot of patience. management were great people, I learned a lot about Medical programs and insurance companies. I can't quite say what my favorite part was, maybe the people I worked with.
