Intern (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – May 25, 2018
At ECMC I learned a lot about not only what it took to be an OT but also what it means to be great at anything in life. Nothing at ECMC was handed to me I had to work hard to be recognized at the internship.
Registered Nurse -ICU Step (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – April 3, 2018
Fast paced understaffed hospital with a large population of poor uneducated and or homeless patients. Poor staffing led to un safe work environment. Hard to get time off approved due to lack of staff. Poor management.
Hospital Information & Transportation Manager (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – April 2, 2018
I managed two separate departments at ECMC, overall it was a fast pace moving environment, due to being the only adult trauma center in WNY, there is always something going on. Overall the people can be very friendly, If your team orient you will go far, but sometimes due to the fast pace, you can get overwhelmed, and feel overlooked.
Get Benefits, career based with 401k, great healthcare
still healthcare, hours, competive, stressful environment at times
Student Nurse (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – March 21, 2018
I really liked to provide care to elderly patients (on geriatric psychiatric unit). I also utilized therapeutic communication with elderly patients with different mental illnesses and assisted them during occupational therapy sessions.
Employee (Current Employee) – Buffalo ny – March 10, 2018
No room for advancement unless you want to do anything “status quo”. The place just seeps nepotism and poor managerial decisions. They don’t care about patient care and best outcomes. They care about their profit margin. One of the worst places I’ve ever worked. Very unprofessional management. Favoritism runs rampant where management picks and chooses what to follow up on based on “who you know” or who you’re related to. Punitive environment. Does not value work/life balance for its staff or management team.
Too many to list! Definitely don’t outweigh the pros
Productive and a place to gain knowledge and compassion for others.
Front Desk Receptionist /CNA (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – February 8, 2018
Why is my opinion required. I was gainfully employed for over 25 years. My first 4 years were not counted because I was on a grant. I loved the work that I did. Meeting and helping people from all walks of life. Having the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge during my tenure. Working alongside of people who were passionate and grateful as I were to be in a position to make a difference in someone else life and any way you could.
RN Med/Surg/Behavior Health (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – February 3, 2018
learning environment, union, holiday, sick, personal leave days, management was excellent when you took the time to ask and are always willing to teach, "culture of care" for our patients, very fast paced, requires teamwork, most enjoyable part of the job was the complex diagnosis i became accustomed to level 1 trauma center, cannot beat the experience. Behavior Health care of excellence was able to work Medical/Surgical/Tele and Behavior Health d/t the the supervisors in the units willing to accommodate my need to continue learning and keeping my skills top notch.
always able to upgrade my skill set, NYS pension, unions
short staffed at times, but my unit always pulled together
Senior Patient Financial ServiceRepresentative (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – January 27, 2018
Any position at the hospital takes a special kind of person and a level of commitment that shows individuals who are willing to work hard, care for patients and represent Erie County Medical Center in a professional and compassionate manner.
Dietary Staff (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – January 10, 2018
I worked there for a couple months. I thought I would work there longer but the management was terrible. They were extremely short staff. They didn't care about my health issues. I was in the hospital the night/day before my shift. I was supposed to work a 11am-7pm. I had a doctors note explaining that I was supposed to be resting for 2 days but the supervisors told me my doctors note didn't mean anything to them, the only way my doctors note would mean something is if I was to call off a few days in a row it would stop from being fired. I was basically told to choose between my health or my job and I stayed at work in pain. It got to point where even the nurses told me to quit I could find a better job. The supervisors did not know how to talk to their employees or treat them. If the management got their things together, hired more people it would be a great job.
Employee Health Nurse (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – January 1, 2018
The department I work in is a fast paced environment servicing the employees of ECMC. My team and I complete the employees annual health assessments, administer vaccines, assist them when they are injured, and review modified duty assignments.
