    I have been working at 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You are treated with the respect as a person. The workers are very knowledgeable on many levels of professionalism, you can laugh and joke with the workers as they are assisting you.

    Cons

    The con is relatively a pro in disguise, 1199 is so popular that many people on any given day are trying to join this union.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, the benefits are truly unsurpassed, I love the open culture and the diversity of the employees. Continue Onward.

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of diversity, & a less corporate setting are things you could look forward to. Oh and did I mention great benefits?

    Cons

    The emphasis on formal education needs to be greater. A lot of people could use the extra encouragement to at least be able to write a full sentence without malapropisms and misspellings. Everyone has their favorites, everyone. Almost feels like high school, with a paycheck.

    I have been working at 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very casual atmosphere. Old timers can get away with working 20-30% of the day and still keep their jobs. This is definitely a family based company with relatives everywhere in the organization. H

    Cons

    Old timers rule the coop. Pay is not in line with the general market. Managers are oblivious. New managers come in with ideas but quickly realize the old timers don't appreciate it. So you simply give up and go with the flow. Low morale, motivation and incentive to make a difference. Nothing is appreciated---my manager never tells me I am doing a good job. Lack of support from staff and managers. It works both ways. Almost feels like a corporate plantation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop wasting money on gifts and give gifts in the form of money

    I have been working at 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A very casual dress code, not that much pressure from management. As long as you do your job you are safe. They have pension and great health benefits. Also most holidays are given off on top of vacation, sick, and personal time.

    Cons

    Salary range is not the great since it is a non profit. Also no bonuses hinder employee satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give regular positive feedback to employees to keep morale high.

    Decent pay, nice perks and autonomy.

    This is a performance-based metrics position which thrives on a stressful environment. The facilities are horrible, the people are unfriendly and although the pay is decent you are evaluated constantly with the threat of being of being fired over your head.
