Pharmacy Technician/Patient Service Representative (Current Employee) – Portland, ME – October 2, 2018
Stressful place to work and it's growing faster than the management knows how to handle. Problems are dealt with after the fact with minimal thought or planning. Employees do not see returns on non-profit's growth.
Treatment by management is awful they play favorites and don’t care about your mental health it is a fast pace very stressful environment with zero appreciation from upper management. Your boss will throw you under the bus to save their own skin, they all do it.
clinical liaison (Current Employee) – Canton, MA – July 2, 2018
I have worked at NELC now for a year and don't intend to leave. The Pharmacists are great and professional, Intake is very talented. We have a great customer service and our patient's are treated as we would treat our own family. The job can be stressful but its manageable .
Homecare RN (Former Employee) – Portland, ME – April 11, 2018
Favoritism, gossip, drama, lack of integrity and dishonesty from management causing a very toxic environment. Negative atmosphere from most that worked there. Very little support from those in other departments. Everything was all about making money and putting the patients and employees last.
For a company that specializes in IV therapy, they can't even start an IV, use sterile technique when changing PICC dressings or draw labs.
Clinical Liaison (Current Employee) – Woburn, MA – February 6, 2018
Easy come easy go. You are well respected when you start and well liked. Training is poor. Cut throats from other nurse. Management is horrible. They never have plan B set in place. The stress, the pay is too low. Suppose to get quarterly bonus. Not true
Intake Coordinator (Current Employee) – Woburn, MA – May 27, 2017
When I came to work there six months ago, the first person to greet me in my orientation was the President of the company! How cool is that! No where else that I have ever worked has that happened. All the senior managers know my name and care about how I am doing. It is so successful and fast paced with opportunities everywhere to grow. Not for lazy folks for sure. I love it and see myself here for a while.
Exciting, changing healthcare, Ping pong tables, fun people, great benefits
Material Manager (Current Employee) – Woburn, MA – April 12, 2017
There is not a typical day , busy fast pace job and the need for multi-tasking. Learned a lot about home infusion and the importance of it, Company provided quality care for the patients. Loved what NELC's mission and goals are.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Woburn, MA – March 8, 2017
A typical day at work was helter skelter and unorganized. Expectations were very unreasonable. The turnover rate is extremely high. Saw so many great people come and go. It was the most toxic atmosphere out of all the places I ever worked at.
Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Concord, NH – August 10, 2016
Worked for New England Life Care for over 5 years and the management was terrible. Not supportive at all. Lots and lots of turnover. Miserable staff. Lots of unhappiness. I wouldn't recommend working there at all!
Executive Vice President - Chief Financial Officer (Former Employee) – South Portland, ME – February 2, 2016
One of the best places to work
Great example of an organization that came together to overcome external regulatory and competitive challenges. Multi year turn around plan moved the company from struggling for financial survival to predictable prosperity.
for 7.5 of the 8 years I worked there it was a great experience.The last 4 months I had transferred to the Concord branch and the culture was so diffe
Clinical Staff Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Woburn, MA – July 27, 2015
Would recommend for a pharmacist looking to get an experience in home infusion.The pay is good to start but the percentage for raises are usually only 1-1.5% per year. Pharamcists work at a fast pace and you really must know how to multi-task. I would day for the most part a good place to work.
Friendly stress free atmosphere, with flexibility and decent rate of pay
Clinical Secretary (Former Employee) – Portland, ME – July 7, 2015
New England Life Care was an exceptional company to work for. A typical day would involve being one of the first employees in the building, greeting my co-workers as they arrived. working with reports to meet deadlines for essential documentation for patient records. Supporting the Nursing Departments clerical needs, working on projects for Nursing, Pharmacy, Materials Management and Dietary dept. Trouble shooting office equipment, ensuring office as well as nursing supplies were kept at an expected level,as well as checking with our other branches to ensure they also had what was needed. I was fortunate enough to work with the IT dept to test new software before rolling it out to the rest of the company. I acted as the company preceptor traveling to our other branches as required for training. My co-workers were exceptional! I absolutely loved working for this company and honestly the hardest part was having to walk away when my position was eliminated. But the CFO made time to do it in person and explain the reason. That made me feel like I was a valued employee. The most enjoyable part of my position was the opportunity to mulit-task on a daily basis as well as the challenge to meet deadlines. I had the oportunity to learn new tasks on a regular basis due to the projects that were given to me.
Flexibility to prioritze my day, friendly atmosphere, latitude to make decisions, my work schedule
The 45 min travel each way, ( If you can consider that a con)
