iI found the job interesting and very enjoyable. I left because of a long term sickness in a family member. I chose to care for my family member. I loved my work at the hospital. It was very physical in the type of work. I could work now in a less physically demanding environment. I repaired and did maintained the medical equipment. I interfaced the equipment with the staff.

Working for YNHH is great! There is room for advancement, training. The co-workers are willing to assist you in learning your part of the team. The more you put into your position, the more you show your team and management what you are capable of.
Clinical Data Specialist (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – January 22, 2019
Getting ahead in therir own career.. Overall my dept was great when the management was great. Managers from hospital that was taken over eventually took over department. These people had no clue what they were doing. This pattern continued. And the dumber they got, the more cut-throat it became. Quality and performance ...eventually there won’t be any.
Community Educator (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – December 26, 2018
Very competitive as it is a very large organization. Salary does not relate to cost of living. Management is knowledgeable but very uniform. Your paid time off is first come first serve depending on the department. Some departments have to plan their time off 6 months in advance. Cannot be late 3 minutes or call out sick 2 times in a month before a written warning is issued.
Assistant Director of Pt Services (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – December 15, 2018
Cut-throat, very racist co-workers, hostile to new employees, gossiping a lot. Management does not want to hear any complaints. If you report problem, you get in trouble. It's better to stay quiet Never want to go back there again.
CareCard Program Coordinator (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – December 11, 2018
During my five year career, I've been able to serve in several capacities. I'm thankful for my experiences that have taught me so much about the health system and about serving the community with compassion and integrity.
Nurse (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – December 3, 2018
Staff is overworked, scheduling has limited flexibility. Drama galore. High turnover rate (40 people in 2 years aprx on 1 floor). Seniority does not necessarily know best. If you succeed its a you vs them. People are risking patient care and health but still manage to have a job.
pto cash out
no breaks limited scheduling flexibility drama uncomfortable

So enjoyed my time working at Yale New Haven Hospital. The staff is among the finest in the industry. The ongoing professional development helps us to stay on top of the latest developments in the field.
High paced place to work depending on the pavilion.
Lead Enviromental Service Aide (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – November 24, 2018
Yale New Haven Hospital is a very diverse place. You see all different types of people from all different walks of life. Working at Yale has definitely made my interpersonal skills much stronger. One of the things I do not like about Yale is, for service departments, it is hard to move out. I have coworker with their bachelors degree and cannot seem to find their way out. I also don't like that most higher ups are not friendly(doctors). They seem to think they are better than everyone. They will not even say hello half of the time.
i love my co workers and the people i worked WITH not the people i worked FOR. management sucked, they overused their power.
Dental Assistant (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – November 18, 2018
overall, job and duties were not bad. it is just the management in my department that was horrible. very authoritative and over using their power. you cannot voice out your opinions and suggestions. they are not leading the group but micromanaging the employees.
