I have heard the Health Department has a stronger IT department and other support departments (i.e. HR) than other City agencies. Intelligent managers and many people with MPH or MPA degrees here. Still, my office's database of record for our regulatory work is clunky and was built "cheaply." It's frustrating to use that system. That was a "managerial" choice and is not an overall reflection on the agency itself which does great work for the City. Overall the agency operates more efficiently than other City agencies.
The current Commissioner, Bassett, is a strong and intelligent, positive force in the agency and City. However, her political notifications by e-mail to all employees regarding #blacklivesmatter is too narrow and political. The public health matters for all of NEW YORK CITY's diverse residents including folks of all ethnic groups. Her messaging is too overtly PC since ALL LIVES IN NYC MATTER.
Advice to Management
Streamline and enhance individual bureau's use of technology so that it is more user-friendly and efficient for all employees. Improve hiring educational requirements for administrative staff - some admin staff I have worked with are lazy/ not educated enough.

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene.
received a call to schedule an in-person interview. Then was interviewed with 4 people and an HR personnel. Simple and straight forward question. One scenario question. The process took forever. They didn't call back until one month later to give an offer. Then it took like another 2 months to be called in. They said it could take up to 6 months.
