Pros
Great Compensation
Cons
Greatly Understaffed

Patient Advocate (Current Employee) –  Westport, CTDecember 6, 2018
management was incompetent but doctors were amazing did my best to maintain patient care. my direct supervisor was promoted without any formal training in leadership or management and didn't have a degree which left her incompetent to handle her role thus I was left to pick up her slack in order to maintain patient care and keep the doctors happy.

Fun place to work
Exercise Physiologist (Current Employee) –  Danbury, CTNovember 27, 2018
I got to learn a lot here about the field of PT/PTA/Exercise physiology. The team of therapists are very knowledgeable. The staff of PT/OT/Speech/Exs Phys all collaborate together for the patients needs. They have an aquatic pool for therapy which is a nice bonus. Also have a pediatric dept.

Information Desk Receptionist (Current Employee) –  Danbury, CTNovember 8, 2018
Nothing but the most positive experience with my employment. Management and all employees like or love their status and make each day working within the hospital a time worth working. Created a family without the intention on doing so.
Pros

Stressful Enviroment
Patient Advocate (Former Employee) –  Wilton, CTNovember 2, 2018
Organization has been making major changes in terms of leadership. Providers and clinical staff are simply not happy. Physicians are dropping like flies and so are individuals in leadership. Organization has took a turn for the worse and their focused on doing anything to make the most profit possible. Staff often feel as though their morale is compromised. The Western Connecticut Medical Group aspect of the organization is okay, however they try to implement initiatives which are counter productive. Clerical staff is often given too many duties and responsibilities and are almost always short staffed. Clerical staff also have the responbility of answering an extremely high phone volume. Patients are often extremely unsatisfied and are leaving their practices. Management cultivate a blame culture and do not promote team work. This organization across the board is filled with drama and hostility amongst employees and management. Physicians are often upset with the organization and management as well. Most employees feel that their is a disconnect between management and the organizations leadership.
Pros
Benefits are great
Cons
PTO is used for Snow days

Good for some, not for others
Network Specialist (Current Employee) –  Danbury CTOctober 26, 2018
The working environment is good for some; not for others. There is a lot of self motivation required. The same rules do not apply for all, which is demotivating. Positives are we are working to help people in need, and that is always good. Good Team work; positive efforts always to improve. Neutral opinion on Management because it does not filter down enough to the level of certain jobs to ascertain the facts.

Must have a lot of self motivation. Technology moves slowly, Recent changes in IT management are encouraging.
Pros
Personal time off is more than most employers provide.
Cons
Not same rules for remote work for similar jobs. ; no retirement plan.

Very disappointed
Administrative Assist (Former Employee) –  Danbury, CTOctober 25, 2018
I thought in a million years I would ever be a person who wrote a poor review but if I thought it fair to let someone else go into a Patient Advocate spot or another clerical spot they may see my post and think twice. The worst 8 years I spent working was at the hospital. Managers were rude and didn't look out for the employee. You were just a number and no matter how hard you worked or helped out it went unnoticed and unappreciated. The managers play favorites and are crass and unfriendly. I do think however the doctors and hard working professionals committed to the patient. And the nurses are the same but the entire hospital is so cutback that everyone is so overworked.
Pros
The Doctor's and Nurses are awesome
Cons
Poor management and no respect for anyone

Pitiful
Patient Advocate (Current Employee) –  ConnecticutSeptember 22, 2018
This organization is pitiful on every level. The organization seems to be more concerned about how things look on the surface. As long as the buildings are beautiful and the staff all look like Stepford wives in their uniforms they are content. They demand a lot and give very little in return. The patients are treated like numbers and the staff is treated like slaves. WCHN forgets if your employees are happy your patients will be happy as well. Poor pay, poor insurance, and poor management. I would not recommend this organization to work at nor be a patient.
Cons
The entire organization

Staff Nurse (Former Employee) –  Norwalk, CTSeptember 20, 2018
There are individuals who need to justify their positions in the organization. Understandable. But there is more to patient care than the bottom line. Patients deserve the best possible care available, not the most economical. I was a victim of "fiscal reconstruction". I out priced myself with more than 4 decades of experience and was forced to retire. They never see the devastation their decisions create or the lives they ruin in pursuit of the almighty dollar. Although they were a nice place to work for a while, their administrative practices leave a lot to be desired.

Rewarding and challenging job.
Mental Health Associate (Former Employee) –  Danbury, CTSeptember 13, 2018
Loved being part of a team with an ongoing assessment of skills and certifications. Patient care was always a priority and the safety of the patients was paramount. Working with the mentally ill ,compassion and being non judgmental was a priority due to their fragile state while under our care. WE were in a position to make them feel their self worth and potential due to the bridges they burned in their personal life which made them feel worthless. Kind words and positive reinforcement goes a long way.
Cons
Weekends

Stressful position with incompetent management
Patient Service Representative (Former Employee) –  ConnecticutSeptember 10, 2018
They advertise paid holidays but if you don't have PTO accrued for the holidays, you don't get paid. The 'new' manager loves to instigate drama. If you enjoy middle school cattiness, apply within. Compensation is laughable, and the insurance is pitiful. The building probably has mold - everyone gets sick and it's filthy, bugs everywhere (dead and alive). Management also doesn't know how to do the job but micromanages everyone like nothing I've ever witnessed.

Transporter (Former Employee) –  Danbury, CTAugust 14, 2018
Gained more communication skills due to me picking up different patients every day and some times the same and building relationships with them during their stay at the hospital and help make them feel as comfortable as possible. Work place was busy and were under staffed.

Busy place but most try to do a good job to provide the best possible patient care. The staff is generally nice. Cafeteria food is ok, but can be improved.

It's been so long since I've worked there. Many changes have occurred such as mergers with larger hospital networks. I cannot place an accurate review.
