    Pros

    This is an amazing hospital with excellent clinical work and research productivity. You will be surrounded by driven physicians who also must deal with the same instiutional barriers to effective clinical care. Therefore there is a sense of solidarity.

    Cons

    This place is incredibly difficult to work due to the non-streamlined nature. There is incredible bureaucracy, laziness by all the ancillary staff (including nurses, schedulers, etc) and the onus therefore falls on the residents, fellows and medical students to pick up all the slack.

    Advice to Management

    Instill a culture where the ancillary staff are held accountable to physicians, not just the manager within their department

    I have been working at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary goes into the bank every 2 weeks. If you stick around long enough (a few years), chances are you'll get promoted (like many in upper management): not because you're good, but because you outlived all the good ones who were so frustrated and left.

    Cons

    The institution is SOLELY process driven -- it's about documenting, going to meetings, and writing "action items". A lot of talk, very little work gets done. Something didn't get done? No problem! Just make up an artificial sub-action-item and put a tick next to it. In reality, did anything improve? No, but the PERCEPTION of it did ("yay, we made some progress"). This is a very frustrating place to work for. People are there just to draw a salary. Do not expect to be challenged, heard, or respected. Everything is delegated to vendors, nothing gets done in house (therefore, everyone is some sort of a "manager" -- big titles, no experience or real input). Management is delusional because it actually thinks it's at the cutting edge. 2012: "lets use Twitter! Not sure how, but at least we can say that we are using it." I've spoken to nurses, doctors, and admin people who worked elsewhere: things are better at small, less prestigious institutions. NYP is riding Columbia's reputation of excellence. Unfortunately it seems like the only "AMAZING" thing that is happening at NYP is that somehow the doctors still function and maintain a good reputation for the organization.... Believe me, I am not the only one who shares this sentiment....

    Advice to Management

    Try to develop your young and bright. The people at the top are so remote from what's going on that decisions made in closed doors are completely disconnected from reality. That's why you need "processes" -- because then the implementation upper management decided on doesnt make sense, and then the little people need to clean up after you.
