    Very Good Potential Organization ruined by Horrible Upper Mgmt.

    Applications Systems Analyst (Current Employee)
    Brooklyn, NY

    ProsOrganization has many hard-working, competent, decent, dedicated workers. These employees are the only staff which allow the organization to function at all. make Most care deeply about getting the job done and are usually willing to work long hours and do
    whatever they're able to do a good job. Most are always willing to work with other
    employees, and sincerly want to see their fellow employees succeed. There are talented
    work

    ConsUpper Mgmts stunning failures in any useful communication, engaging in bullying and refusal to listen to any subordinates potential solutions that do not completely agree with it's own narrow 'ideas'. Mgmt's overly secrective to own employess, continually fails to disclose the most basic information to the staff. Much of this mgmt spends far to much time playing CYA games to protect their own employment and is dysfunctional and has no patience nor vision how to effectively manage a staff. Unfortunently, this culture of fear comes from the top down. Advice to anyone offered employment especially in MIS. Run, Do not accept a position in this dept, as you will regret it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement on almost every level needs to be held accountable for staggering revenue loses for reasons they've never bothered to explain. Mgmt badly needs new leadership to replace the negative, secret very questionable financial decisions and the puzzling hiring of outside consulting companies usually hired at great cost to do the same jobs the organization's employees are already performing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I stay because, of my responsibilities

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsUnion, Benefits, Amount of time one obtains as vacation when one has reached five years, & pay.

    ConsHave employees who can retire, and simply take up space, and time. Management sees their mistakes but, at this point doesn't reprimand them for it. Wants to make a newbie feel as if responsible for learning all the work meanwhile, the staff that has been there only does their job and doesn't cover if one is absent. Will leave work if that person is on vacation, sick or has taken a personal day for them to complete upon their return. Can only imagine if the person passed away unexpectedly for a few weeks or months, someone will have to do the work till someone is hired and trained.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBascially, have her employees who have been at the job learn all the jobs for their job position so, when you hire new people they also learn all jobs for their position. This will ensure none of the employees ever feel not in the loop.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Sr. Mgmt: Incompetent, Petty, Maybe Financially Corrupt. You Do NOT Want a Job Here!

    Senior Analyst (Former Employee)
    Brooklyn, NY

    ProsSome Middle Mgmt & co-workers decent, kind, people to work with. But many, back stabbers & worse Most Nursing/Medical staff are ok.

    ConsUpper Mgmt only interest is to keep cushy hi-paying jobs & treat workers like garbage. Make dumb deals with outside vendors for tons of money that lines their pockets.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRETIRE. Take small pay cuts, instead of firing hard working dedicated worker bees without ever making a single announcement. Mgmt should step down ASAP. Learn how to treat hard working staff.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Unprofessional

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood doctors and services. Some coworkers were nice.

    ConsHuman resources and management are very unprofessional and straight up mean.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat people with some respect. We're not dogs. Keep this up and you'll lose all your good staff.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Take my advise do not work in the MIS department

    Clinical Analyst (Current Employee)
    Brooklyn, NY

    ProsMaimonides has some of the most extensive computerization of the patient care record in the country. The MIS department is convenient to public transportation.

    ConsManagement operates from the view that bullying is good and does not know how to interact with a professional staff. It is difficult to create a team to work on improvements and go-lives because it is like a revolving doors. Some project managers are worse than others and therefore their team is constantly changing. It is not uncommon to have an 8 am meeting scheduled on the same day as a 5 pm meeting for a 9-5 position. Then management will call you in and ask why you left 5 minutes early. 'My or the highway' is a phrase often heard within the confines of the former auto garage, now the MIS department, across the street from live chicken industry..

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the entire upper level management's mindset. Physical and verbal abuse needs to stop.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    What I thought would be a dream job turned into a nightmare.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Brooklyn, NY

    ProsGood community hospital in a great neighborhood in Brooklyn.

    ConsWeak protections for employees. I went to Human Resources because I felt my boss was abusive and emotionally unstable. Colleagues had told me my boss had a history of picking on one person in the office. HR never helped me and my boss fired me within days of my "confidential" meeting with HR.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDoctors without budgetary and managerial experience should not be made department heads.
