    I have been working at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital

    Pros

    You have a bit of free range to do what want aslong as the job is done.
    Like any place of employment you can truly find friendly and respectful individuals.
    Work around flexible schedules.

    Cons

    -It is most definitely a males playing field. Females must truly exude confidence and be stern every second of the day. (Administrative wise)
    -Managers are not often the most professional. Their language during meetings can be condecending and not the least bit motivational.
    -Their facilities in general are not the cleanist and are worn down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about the supervisors you hire. Promote an equal opportunity.

    I have been working at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Prior to this I had no healthcare experience, but I found it easy to transition. I work in the Department of Medicine and my boss is extremely generous and patient. He really helped guide me and he is always looking to help me build upon my strengths. He does not micro manage, which I like, and he is very open to hearing ideas and suggestions. Also, there is a tradition that when a resident passes their board exams, they buy lunch for the department. This is always a good time, everyone gathers in the conference room and enjoys a meal together. while congratulating the new certified doctor. I always look forward to those days.

    Cons

    Sometimes I find it difficult to get answers from people about things. If we're all on the same team then why can't I just get the information I need so I can move on with my job. There seem to be unnecessary hoops to jump through. I get frustrated sometimes trying to get things done, it feels like policies get in the way rather than promote progress.

    The staff was extremely helpful and patient with the teaching of ultrasound techniques.

    I worked at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Job security, easy work and workplace flexibility. Friendly work environment.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? Company culture - "it's not my responsibility", this can be heard when you call the operator. From management on down. Poor salaries and no benefits - this is run like a 3rd world organization. Top-tier management gets incredible bonuses and good salaries, everyone else is sub-par. Walking around hallways you will hear employees speaking other languages, which seems quite unprofessional. Poor benefits, no tuition reimbursement. No employee parking!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create opportunities for ambitious employees to make changes and improve the organization. Open your ears.
