    I worked at Metropolitan Hospital Center full-time

    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

    As an agency worker you get to make your own schedule if you can't make it in everyday.

    Cons

    The hospital is never hiring, they'll have you working as an Agency worker for years while receiving no benefits. The nurses are lazy, they want you to do their jobs in addition to the million tasks you have to do as a PCA. It's always under staffed on the units so the support staff are juggling a lot of responsibilities. No space to advance your career or work yourself up to another position.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring people.

    I worked at Metropolitan Hospital Center full-time

    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.
