    Pros

    Compassionate workers who are overworked and underpaid

    Cons

    Pay rate not competitive, no cost of living increases, understaffed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More help, increase in pay, people are concerned about ny bills so much so retirement is not a real incentive to keep employees.

    Pros

    Just an Illusion of job security
    HR is not your friend

    Cons

    The company will get rid of you before they are required to invest in a 20 year commitment and retirement after 60.
    They fire the best employees in order to meet upper management goals
    Middle management and supervisors are over paid and under skilled very poor caliber of leadership very bad for quality patient care
    If I were a patient I would not go to health quest

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step down
    They shouldn't be allowed to compromise patient care

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are decent.

    Cons

    "Amateur Hour' with respect to management. "Who you know" better than "what you can do" in this over-centralized monolithic mess run by baby bean counters. Middle management appears to be a 3 year run that leave a "trail of bodies" in its wake before the inevitable axe falls. Bad morale would an improvement here!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lose the MBAs and start hiring MSHCAs (Master of Science in Health Care Administration), people who know how to deal properly with a true health care business model and not just "the bottom line."

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Great benefits. Excellent admin, mid - level IT and Analyst employees.

    Cons

    Management mostly greedy consultants without buy-in. Multiple bosses with conflicting ideas delegating an impossible workload. CIO is not afraid to use the F word to employees and upper management are "yes" men. Little consideration for personal responsibilities - will schedule 5:30 meetings at 4:30. Take an extremely long time to process and reimburse expense reports. This list could go on......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your people well and they will respect and work hard for you.

    Current Employee - IT Department  in  Poughkeepsie, NY
    Current Employee - IT Department in Poughkeepsie, NY

    Pros

    They pay you money, somewhat flexible hours.

    There's literally just not enough pros to write Glassdoor.com's 20 word minimum, sorry.

    Cons

    They don't pay you much money.
    They don't tell you information necessary to do your job.
    You will be reprimanded for not knowing information about your job they refuse to tell you.
    Hours are very long. (10 hours or longer should be expected. My shortest shift ever was 9.5 hours)
    If you work on the lower end of the spectrum you will be routinely disrespected by everyone. This is expected. They purposely make social classes within the company and you will be treated based on your class.
    Favoritism. So much favoritism.
    Upward mobility is non-existent.
    You will be given conflicting instructions from management making it impossible to do your job.

    I would go on but I think I've made my point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees and consider that maybe you are the problem. You don't tell your employees essential information and then reprimand them and take away privileges for them not knowing these things. (Privileges such as using your cell phone at work) You somehow think this will make them work better. All you do is destroy what little motivation the workforce has by punishing them for your mistakes.
