    Survives on perceived reputation and the fact the surrounding hospitals are even worse.

    Pros

    Perhaps the name on your resume will a second look from a potential employer who has no idea what a terrible place this is. There are some truly excellent clinicians (specifically nurses and doctors) who work extremely hard to overcome the institutional inertia and culture of mediocrity that has permeated this place.

    Cons

    There is a culture of laziness and apathy in almost all ancillary staff who at times seem to actively antagonize clinicians in the pursuit of patient care. Those who make and enforce policy and rules are generally insulated by several layers from actually delivering patient care. This makes it extremely difficult for any sort of even marginal policy to be designed and implemented. Top leadership either does not know, or does not care, that certain functions vital to providing patient care (including laboratory result reporting, pharmacy, archaic and cumbersome computer systems, etc.) barely function - it is only from the consistent and laborious work-arounds by clinicians that care is even provided to the patients. What is truly "Amazing" is that we don't hear about more sentinel events coming out of this hospital. All hospitals (and any large organization, for that matter) have a degree of "out of touch bureaucracy", but this is BY FAR the worst I have ever seen with BY FAR the worst actual consequences "in the trenches" affecting the care of patients. Many colleagues justify it by saying "there are much worse places in NYC", but that in know way excuses what is going on in this hospital.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need leaders who are clinicians and who actively practice - even to a very small degree. At the very least leadership needs to see firsthand and understand just how dysfunctional this hospital is. Frequent e-mails and messages on websites touting "how great of a place NYP is" are viewed as absolute jokes by employees.

    Pros

    Lot going on to challenge you. Very busy and successful hospitals. Values it's employees. Pay seems fair.

    Cons

    Due to the enormity of this company, they have issues getting a handle on details as they trickle down the chain of command. Getting something easy done can sometimes take months or if you bump into the right person, immediately...
