    Pros

    None at all. You can come with a big heart, but hard work is not enough.

    Cons

    Too much politics and the upper management has no respect for employees. Politics even affect the normal course of routine decisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put people in path to grow. Listen to the technical people you hire. You hire them for a purpose, not just say Yes to everything to say. There is no need to ask for advice if at the end, you never listen anyway

    I worked at Maimonides Medical Center part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pros: Some perks (discounts, movie tickets) on the MMC intranet.

    Cons

    It's mainly about who you know and not your skill set. Extremely poor management - doing things on the clock which do not pertain to the job. They push tasks off to others instead of handling themselves. Most employees working at MMC are only there for a paycheck. MMC is almost like a high school.

    Disgusting colleagues, lying, and rude patients

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

    Pros

    Great health benefits for 1199 members, when you make 5 years you get 4 weeks vacation, flexible and understanding Manager when it comes to work schedule and family issues. Manager/Supervisor will work with staff.

    Cons

    You have staff that have been at the company who refuse to learn other colleagues work, they pick
    and choose what they want to learn.
    If you are computer savvy they try to get you
    to teach them how to use the program(s) in the department when they have an MIS department who
    has staff who is specialized in assisting.
    If you are quiet or do not like confrontation they allow other staff members to harass, talk to you how they may normally speak to a family member at home.
    In addition, if you are a new person and you are capable of learning different area's of jobs in the department it now is expected of you to perform that job when the usual person who does the job may have called out sick or is on vacation or has a personal day off. The job function isn't rotated between staff who has been their for a long time and someone who is new.
    The patients lie and cheat the system and if you realize it the patients attempt to make you feel like you are crazy for even bringing it to their attention. When systems are running slow or you are taking care of a cuurent patient, the new patient isn't understanding of the issue with the system, or they become very inpatient and rude with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure all staff members are at the same level when it comes to using computer applications or office technology. Make sure all staff members are knowledgable in doing each others job regardless if they have been there for a long time or are new. Have Supervisors/Managers available to monitor how staff members treat each other in their presence, and out of their presence.

    I worked at Maimonides Medical Center

    Pros

    The benefits and vacation were the best part of working at Maimondies hospital. Okay pentition plan and health benefits were very cheap. It is very interesting to work in a hospital and learn about medicine. The Human Resource department offered a lot of discounts at Amusement parks and cell phone companies. Every year we got a 3 percent raise. Every employess was give a pager. It was very easy to make plans for vacation. We were give generous amount of sick days and personal days. There a garage for the employess to use and the price was cheap. There was also a cafeteria that was cheap

    Cons

    The pay was horrible and unfair compared to other hospitals in NYC. The doctors were very rude when you had to service their computer. No overtime and no communication within the MIS department. When I left they didnt try to make me stay or make me an offer. Made a lot of promises and didnt come through with any. The MIS department had two separate locations one in the hospital and the other in a different building 10 blocks away. So we were split up. Didnt know what different teams were working on. The staff was kept in the dark about a lot of things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have to restructure upper management.
