    Many good worker-bees/some middle mgrs, but 1 of most greed-driven, dysfuctional, irrational upper management ever

    I worked at Maimonides Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many decent, kind, hard working worker-bees only attepting to get jobs done, w/very limited resources. My area had a few great middle mgrs.

    Cons

    Good workers continually undermined, sabotoged by the worst upper mgmt. Scheming, irrational CEO & many other of the same 'yes-men' dept heads despite reality that things sure to end badly. This organization has make very bad, questionable, unexplained (possibly illegal) finincial decisions resulting in financial disaster. This includes on-going firing/departure of tons of good workers past 3+ yrs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean House starting with CEO who should have been 'retired' many years ago. All remaining mgmt, should immediatly start being openly honest, regurarly informing thier respective staffs ot the state of the organization...good or bad They're currently a complete failure at such leaderships functions. A warning to anyone considering employment at many of the depts in MMC should be aware, no matter how great a job you're doing, be advised this greedy organization will fire any non-management worker without reason and it will happen with less then hour of warning late on a Fri. Same mgmt then pretends the firing never occured. Do they really believe this is a sound strategy? This behavior is nothing more then personal greed, petty politics & thier own useless CYA games, This 'strategy' is clearly going on to-date in order for a few overpaid upper mgmt hacks to cling on to thier high priced jobs long past thier past due date.. There've been credible reports MMC will be swallowed by some larger Health Care organization, as they continue to bleed red ink for the 4th yr..

    After these unexplained disapperanes, rest of affected staff only becomes aware when co-workers vanishes week after week.. Unless drastic changes are made at the top of this 'food chain' and those who remain in positions of real power over others are even capable of dramatic change, sadly this organization that sincerly has some great potential will not survive, at least in it's current form much longer.

    I have been working at Maimonides Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Have 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 ManagementAdvice

    Bascially, 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.

    I worked at Maimonides Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Upper 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 ManagementAdvice

    RETIRE. 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.

    I have been working at Maimonides Medical Center

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Maimonides Medical Center

    Pros

    Good community hospital in a great neighborhood in Brooklyn.

    Cons

    Weak 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 ManagementAdvice

    Doctors without budgetary and managerial experience should not be made department heads.
