    I have been working at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center

    Pros

    Relatively easy work, lower patient load than most other attending jobs. Most personalities amongst consultants are pleasant and professional. Your laziness will not be noticed. There is the opportunity to see private patients in the clinic and admit them as privates when they are hospitalized, ie bill extra as the private attending.

    Cons

    Residents are not very highly motivated and require constant supervision. Management is comically inept. The medicine department has been continuously understaffed for at least a year, so it's very difficult to get time off. They also have a delightful little policy wherein vacation can only be taken in blocks of at least one week, starting on a Thursday and ending on a Wednesday. We also do not receive cost of living adjustments, and raises are few & far between.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit making excuses and hire enough attendings to get the job done.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
  2. It was a great co to work for
