    I worked at Montefiore Medical full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Staff and physicians are dedicated and caring. However, these values are not supported by management.

    Cons

    Lacks leadership in this particular clinic to improve morale and provide support to the doctors so doctors can provide quality care without having to be concerned about supply and sanitary condition and daily function of the clinic. Certain staff had found it useful to socialize with management in order to be on their good side. The staff member ,who remained hard-working and believed in providing quality care ,has felt threatened by management. Management more concerned about power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to listen to the physicians and staff and take suggestions seriously. Management needs to be actively involved in the clinic in order to run the clinic efficiently and safely. Need to encourage team-play and be a good role model.

    I worked at Montefiore Medical full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    At Montefiore I enjoyed working with all types of patients, and everyday was a learning experience. Case Management was my favorite opportunity with Montefiore, but there are many opportunities available within the organization.

    Cons

    Management takes a big look at numbers, more compassion and empathy should be a part of the work environment.

    Pros

    Flexibility (clearly this depends on your direct supervisor)
    Very interesting time in health care and Montefiore seems to be a player in the forefront
    Lots of tertiary benefits, including great 403b match

    Cons

    Locations (Bronx, Yonkers, Tarrytown)
    Vast size of the organization
    Reliance on consultants more for political reasons than actual expertise and aptitutde

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more paths to management and learn how to do your own Excel reports.
    Reports for the sake of reports doesn't serve anybody well
    Protect your team so you can focus on the tasks at hand

    I worked at Montefiore Medical full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good Training; you can learn case management well.

    Cons

    Need more cutting edge business approaches. Salaries for LPN so low that they get the dredges in personalities and professionalism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update team with additional business management training for today's staff. Narrow minded dated techniques being used to serve today's demographic. Too many grey areas in decision making. Implementation of teams and ideas excessively slow. You are losing good people to the timidness and lack of professional insight when it comes to appointment and decision making within the CMO.
