    Pros

    Its an HHC hospital in the city. Good benefits and close to public transit and restaurants. Accessible to FDR. Overlooking east river.

    Cons

    Low salary and people stay here too long until retirement. People have big heads and dont get reprimanded if they made a mistake.

    Advice to Management

    Organize yourself and get rid of people that are not contributing for the hospital. Increase salary and bring back the good old benefits.

    Pros

    People are great, enriching experience, going to the upper east side everyday, there are a lot of materials to work with...

    Cons

    I left due to low pay and benefits, and seemed impossible to move up from within.

    Advice to Management

    As a clinician, I had a hard time seeing eye to eye with your practice philosophy. Plus your sick time policy is unreal.

    Pros

    Direct service/line staff are fantastic. I know of very few people who aren't very close to and fond of their immediate co-workers (outside of a few bad apples, as with anywhere). Good benefits from the city. Excellent setting to accrue credentials, clinical/licensure hours, etc. Tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional administration. Leadership prioritizes their own images over employee satisfaction/ performance and even safety. Other hospitals back their employees in terms of setting limits and preventing abuses to the system. MHC's leadership's priority is preventing themselves from getting dirty, even if that means throwing an employee under the bus. Rarely do they promote from within so get your credentials and bolt.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with the same values that you expect the patients to be treated with. Provide incentives for us to want to do our best for the hospital, not just our patients.
