    Good but could have been better

    Clerical Assistant (Former Employee)
    Richmond Hill, NY

    ProsThere are a lot of opportunities available but you must know someone within the department or have a direct connection. Once you are within the inner circles everything seems "Golden". With so many department and various job titles the opportunities are truly limitless

    ConsFar to much nepotism favoritism and fake positions assigned to friends of friends doing "Make up work"

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat all employees fairly

    "Worst mistake I made was staying there for so long"

    Radiology (Former Employee)

    ProsCo-workers. Working around these people for so long was like family. The paid-vacation time was great.

    ConsInefficient, incompetent management. Highly understaffed and overworked. Many flaws in their system.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet you act together and stop blaming employees for your utter lack of efficient leadership.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    was very interesting work at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center

    Laboratory Technician (Current Employee)

    Prosone of the best reason to work in Jamaica Hospital was the interaction that exist within doctors , nurses and the lab. we all work as a team.

    ConsI think what challenging me the most is when we have to provide rapid results to doctors specially from the ER area.

    Most days I enjoyed working there, other days not so much.

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat trauma team most employees are very friendly and professional.

    ConsClueless to some of the hospitals and employees needs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake better care of the employees.

    Cut-throat backstabbers

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIndividual who brought me in was kind, gracious, and helpful. Showed me the ropes and was patient with me as I learned the system

    ConsOther individuals were less than kind (ie: talking about me negatively behind my back) and ultimately firing me with no warning.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone, since they were management. Hopefully, Karma will come back to bite them. Despicable and disgusting people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Richmond Hill, NY

    ProsSome of the best reasons to work for Jamaical Hospital is helping patients, job security, job growth, and education.

    Its what you make of it

    Breastfeeding Peer Counselor (Current Employee)
    Jamaica, NY

    ProsI love what I do and my co-workers are great.

    ConsWe get paid as contractors which means its sporadic and unpredictable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut the Peer Counselors on the hospital payroll. So we can actually support our families consistently.

    Underwhelming from all angles

    Attending Hospitalist (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsRelatively 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.

    ConsResidents 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 Senior ManagementQuit making excuses and hire enough attendings to get the job done.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
