It has been an incredible ride - the hardest I have ever worked and the best, most rewarding job I have ever had.

I have been working at Hospital for Special Surgery

Pros

Fabulous brand, available reosurces, opportunities to do what I do best everyday, collegial relationships, and environment of excellence and innovation.

Cons

Location and commute, limited promotional opportunities, unrelenting pace and volume of work and lack of work/life balance.

If you can handle the demands for total commitment - it is a fabulous place to work!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You hire talented people who are experts in their field - so please let them do their jobs and stop micromanaging...

Otherwise, you are an ethical and intelligent leadership team, deeply commited to the success of HSS and its mission.

To keep your managers engaged you must be willing to trust them and give them room to grow ...

    I worked at Hospital for Special Surgery

    Pros

    General pleasantness amongst the facility as a whole, great benefits, and great composition for nurses.

    Cons

    Horrible employee morale amongst nurses, lots of back stabbing, and incompetent management on all levels in nursing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop relying on current staff on the same level as the "new guy" to make your decision as to who to keep on staff. Try giving employees a chance before giving up on them.

    I have been working at Hospital for Special Surgery

    Pros

    good pay
    people are generally nice and approachable
    lots of informal parties

    Cons

    conservative
    10 years behind the digital/computer age
    department culture
    lack of diversity in senior management
    few (maybe none) professional networks
    CEO is innovative, but the doers are not. they are old and have been there a long time...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay more attention to staff development
    get feedback from employees, not just managers
    invest in process management, not just IT although both are needed
    increase diversity in senior management
    design better career tracks for non-clinicians
    expand huddles to the little man
