    Former Employee - Clerical Associate Lll in New York, NY

    I worked at Bellevue Hospital Center as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed that the social workers and doctors I worked with were very helpful and friendly. I worked in the Children's CPEP and at times it was intense but a great learning experience for a person interested in the field of Psychology.

    Cons

    I had to be hired as a temp which I was not happy with. I also didn't like how they handed the hurricane sandy situation due to everyone's job being n limbo.

  3.  

    They're a good public hospital but I wish they'd stop relying on faxes

    Over all it was just a pay check, not really a place to grow.

    I worked at Bellevue Hospital Center

    Pros

    One of the better reasons to work at Bellevue, is the vacation you receive. Also the benefits are very good as well. However I was a lucky employee and got on real well with my coworkers and learned a great deal about construction.

    Cons

    There is no real room to grow. The ability to get promotions is limited in the trades field. Upper management needs to be restructured.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring so many people to do the same thing. Also learn to do your job and don't be asking your subordinates how to do your job for you the right way. Not all management is like this, however restructuring is needed.

    I have been working at Bellevue Hospital Center full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    City Job with good benefits
    Union Representation
    Pension Plan

    Cons

    Managment micromanages, they're non-supportive, non-receptive to ideas, and some are unqualified.
    Management does not educate staff of their employee rights
    Management loves to overuse the terms, "I'm giving you directives"
    Managment plays psychological games by saying, "That was your perception"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up, stop scrutinizing staff's every move. If you hired them, then you should trust them to carry out the job.
    Support your staff as much as you would to keep your own job safe.
    Educate employees about their rights, for example use of FMLA if they are out sick to much instead of writing them up.
    Stop acting like the employee's pay is coming out of your money. We all get paid by taxpayers, not you.
