I have had mostly good experiences working at HHC.

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)

I have been working at NYC HHC full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe best reason to work here is the NYCERS pension. It makes up for the lower salary you make working for the city in a public hospital.

ConsSalary is lower than working in private hospitals. Also some of the patient population includes the homeless and indigent, who when ill can be surprisingly demanding and high handed with the staff, ordering us around like servants and offering numerous complaints about the quality of the food, low thread count linen, no free TV etc.. It would be funny if it were not so frequent.

Advice to Senior ManagementWe need better staffing, the nurse to patient ratio is too high. There are also not enough nurses aides. If we had more staff we could provide superior care, right now we only provide adequate to good care.

It has been a dynamic transformation working for HHC as suppose to the legal profession.

I have been working at NYC HHC full-time for more than a year

ProsMeeting challenges---as we know, there will always be---but meeting and working with people who are not afraid to set up to the challenge.

Stagnant place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at NYC HHC as a contractor

ProsYou given free reign once you get you job done. Very laid back atmosphere, no pressure to show initiative or drive. Conforms to the stereotype of a city job.

ConsIf you are looking for career advancement it is hard. You have to know someone higher up to get recognized or given a opportunity to advance.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have good workers--provide some motivation for greatness.

The care provided in the hospitals is first rate and Management is comprised of smart dedicated people.

Senior Associate Director (Former Employee)
Bronx, NY

I worked at NYC HHC full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe management salary structure as a public benefit corporation is higher than mayoral agencies. There are very smart people working there. If you like for your agency to be covered in the news you will like it there.

ConsSometimes underlings can make nearly as much as their supervisors. It can be a very political cutthroat environment. The hours can be very long for some and only the minimum 35 hours for others.

Advice to Senior ManagementTell the staff as often as you can how their work is valued and never never "throw them under the bus" for your errors.

Not a Great Place to Work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Brooklyn, NY

I worked at NYC HHC full-time for more than 5 years

ProsIt is steady work. There are a lot of unionized positions. Therefore, the workers fo have some assistance fighting the demon that is HHC management.

ConsEverything Else about this organization is a con.

Advice to Senior ManagementFirst of all HHC needs to hire real Mangers. The practice of nepotism and chronyism is too rampant. The organization will never prosper until this problem is resolved.

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

Mixed Bag

Staff Internal Auditor (Current Employee)

I have been working at NYC HHC full-time for more than a year

ProsThe pros, as everyone pointed out, is the excellent work-life balance, free health insurance option and pension.

ConsUpward mobility is limited; when a position becomes available, management would rather hire externally. A lot of internal promotions are based on connections - not skills.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange old accounting systems like OTPS - we're in the 21st Century! Get rid of old timers who are no longer contributing to the hospital.

Program Manager/Functional Analyst

Program Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at NYC HHC full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLight work load, 35hr work week, good benefits.

ConsNo opportunities for growth, working with incompetent people at high level position because they don't fire them but just move them to a different department when they want to get rid of them. No cost of living increases.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the dead weight or it will drag you down.
