    I worked at Albert Einstein Healthcare Network (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very flexible hours and understanding of school commitments. Allows for student nursing experience all over the hospital. Great pay for a extern position. They allow you to extend your contract if you do not find a nursing job right after graduation.

    Cons

    Some people did not like always being moved from unit to unit around the hospital.

    I worked at Albert Einstein Healthcare Network full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits were impressive at one point in time, but Einstein is slowly but surely going bankrupt these days. Those once impressive benefits have been subject to cutbacks.

    Cons

    Einstein is a union-less for-profit organization. They do not care about their employees, especially in the Protective Services department. The management discriminates on the basis of gender (They do not hire female officers). You are EXTREMELY over worked and under paid. You think you're signing up for security but you're actually signing up to be: a receptionist, a pathologist (removing bodies from the morgue), a mechanic, escort, RN, environmental services, etc...You are the "Jack of all trades," yet the lowest position on the totem pole. Despite all security does, you are treated as if you're a contractor rather than a hospital employee. You will never get time off or even breaks because they are extremely understaffed and unwilling to hire except for per diem positions. Also, there is no room for advancement (the politics are ridiculous). I fortunately resigned after two years, but others aren't so luck these days; beware of the layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This organization needs a complete makeover, I cannot begin to explain how negative my experience has been. Particular management exhibits arrogant, prejudiced, immoral, impractical, patronizing, and most of all deceiving behavior. Next, work of improving the quality of the hospital in general. The non existent customer service at Einstein needs improvement and please cutback on the invasion of employee privacy.

    I have been working at Albert Einstein Healthcare Network as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    You're always out in the field experiencing new things. You meet plenty of people and learn about new things at a rapid pace. The people are friendly and the ones who aren't always make for a great story. In addition, your 8 hour day goes by fast about 80 percent of the time. If you want to get your foot in the door it is the perfect place for it. Little to no micro managing(gift and a curse).

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems like you are never going to get a permanent job. Management is very down to earth and friendly/approachable, but i would like for them to be more serious when its time to be. Full- Time pay is a huge gap from intern pay, and you are doing the same work if not more work, leaning towards the latter. Co workers are great, but sometimes they can never answer questions they should know, everybody isn't a genius, but when you are at a job for 10+ years you should know better. It also seems like a lot of people are scared to lose their job, so they withhold information from you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more serious with your employees when the time calls
    Make full-time employees do more work to join the select few that work very hard everyday.
    Talk to your superiors about hiring more inside and more frequently, there is more than enough work to go around.
    Start assigning projects to keep the lazy workers busy so they wont be bored.

    I have been working at Albert Einstein Healthcare Network full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    My co-workers are great, they are the main reason why I've been there for so long. Management is a whole other story, however they are flexible with your schedule if it deals with school, benefits ok and transportation is close by.

    Cons

    very administrative driven, salary not very competitive compared to others around the area. Little consideration on loyalty and quality on nursing, more on the "rules".
