    Highly educated and progressive staff with open minded ideologies.

    Hard to think of one. Bureaucracy in the higher-up administrative positions which occassionally impact the quality of clinical care provided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider more consistent collaboration between administrative staff and clinical staff.

    I have been working at Mount Sinai Hospital (New York) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You learn a lot.
    You can build your resume.
    Stability

    Cons

    No room for growth.
    Employees are expected to come in early and stay late (Some come in at 5:30AM and leave at 7:30PM).
    No promotions, raises or bonuses for Research Assistants and Research Coordinators.
    After 3 years (with no raise) we were given a 3% "cost of living increase".
    Doctors and management are rude, childish and ungrateful for the work and effort their employees put in.
    Very high turnaround. Research Assistants don't usually stay for more than a year.
    Management will place vacation request freezes from time to time if they are short on staff.
    Low office morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People would stay longer if they knew there was a chance of growth.
    Offer raises for deserving employees.
    Say "Thank you", "Great job" or "We are so happy to have you here". This costs nothing, but it means so much.

    Sinai is Great, but Avoid Joining the IT Department

    Current Employee - IT Department  in  New York, NY
    Current Employee - IT Department in New York, NY

    I have been working at Mount Sinai Hospital (New York) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    School and doctors are leaders in Medicine. CEO is a fighter for Mount SInai. Hospital closings are common in NY. SInai will not be one of them due to hardworking leadership. Merged with Continuum to grab more market share. Huge medical center, opportunity to learn operations of a complex vast medical center. Leadership likes to try new ideas and technology, such as 100% conversion to EPIC and Minerva, their home grown data research system.

    Cons

    Some IT departments are unprofessional and abusive. There is a noticeable pattern of hiring and advancing only non-technical women for IT leadership roles, and a high turnover with the technical staff that report to them, who often happen to be men and have Computer Science / Engineering degrees. Stressful when the boss does not understand the technology yet makes the technical decisions, then screams and points fingers at her staff when it doesn't work. Disappointing Mount Sinai does not lead their IT Department like their Medical School, based on teamwork, academic qualifications, and results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Analyze IT churn rates. Identify locations and root causes.
    2. More personal interest and investment in staff growth.
    3. Career paths!
    4. Stop cut-throat layoffs where staff watch long-time coworkers suddenly walked out.

    Pros

    Strong ability to grow and maximize possibilities across the hospital and medical school, great people to work with, Sinai Central is incredibly useful and helpful

    Cons

    Largely procedural and bureaucratic, unfair in some aspects, food is avoidable. Area is not the best and commute can be a challenge every day.

    Current Employee - Radiology
    Current Employee - Radiology

    I have been working at Mount Sinai Hospital (New York) full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The pay great for radiology techs starting out
    1199 Union, benefits are pretty good

    Cons

    1199 Union means it's very difficult to get fired which means lazy techs stay lazy
    Managers are not qualified for the departments they are managing. People get positions based on seniority not qualifications/hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow promotions through merit not through seniority, even though the Union would probably have a field day with that one.
