    Pros

    Encountered many professional, decent, talented, hard working, very over worked, kind,
    helpful co-workers/associates while at MMC. Virtually all these individuals were regular 'worker bees. Also know one or two very of the very finest middle managers ever had the pleasure to work with. All these individuals were always working very long hours, focused on doing the bast possible jobs they could and getting projects successfully completed despite insane target dates dictated by non-technical mgmt. .

    Cons

    Cons? MMC is over. It is done. Just read local NYC papers. MMC was effectively taken over by NS-LIJ, as the hospital has been losing massive amounts of money for years. A simple case of little fish eaten by a much bigger fish. MMC tried to cover this up by laying off workers for years. Some happen to know this massive financial failure is clearly due to totally incompetent, back-stabbing, overpaid, under performing, dysfunctional, greed driven management 'running' MMC as is it's own personal ATM. All of MMC Upper Mgmt should have been removed Long Ago. Now it's just a matter of time. NS-LIJ is far too smart to allow these potential incompetents and potential criminals to remain.

    My Advice: DO NOT ACCEPT ANY FULL TIME PAYING EMPLOYMENT OFFER FROM THIS VILE HOUSE OF LIARS & THIEVES. In almost every case, Your job will quickly be eliminated by NS-LIJ. When Upper MMC mgmt is fired, they'll receive Golden Parachutes, The rest of MMC worker bees get the boot, fired without a single days notice. Maimonides Medical Center as we've known it is long gone. To potential applicants; Just Say No Thanks & RUN!

    Advice to Management

    Get Out Now. Resign, Retire en mass. It would not at all surprise anyone paying close attn, there has been potentially criminal activity occurring within MMC upper Mgmt for years. Pam Brier should have been put out to pasture long ago. She promotes this and is ether delusional or suffering from Alzheimer's. Upper I.T. Mgmt should be under investigation as many know the despicable CIO and selected cronies engaged in criminal activities for many years. These 'individuals' should be under investigation and indicted for fraud along with other criminal offenses. Many workers have been aware of this, but too scared to say a word. I'm not.

    Pros

    If in the 1199 union no co-pays for any Doctor.

    Cons

    When I was interviewed never asked if I spoke another language. I have voluntarily interpreted but, have refused b/c pay rate is the same as someone who speaks only English.

    Advice to Management

    Negotiate with the Union if hiring billingual staff will pay extra amount for that staff member.

    Pros

    Pays by the hour under the union. Good benefits from the union.

    Cons

    Literally I'm hitting my second year of working here at MMC and work just piles up. When I was hired as a temp for someone on maternity leave and when that person didn't come back I was hired at permanent part time 9-1pm M-F, as a physician's secretary. Now I have to cover each of my coworker's work whenever someone's on vaca and sick days on top of what I'm already doing. There are days where I really have to ask someone to cover my work for 2 mins to run to the bathroom. Can't take vacation because seniority has first dips, even holidays and whenever you want to transfer to another position within union, seniority gets first dips too. Dead end job...if you have a degree don't work here, I'm speaking for administrative work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more competent people and not the lazies and complainers who throws their work at someone else. Also someone computer savvy.

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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