    I worked at NYC HHC as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Direct supervisor was professional and exposed me to a lot of projects. Clinicians and staff are close and friendly, allowing for a collaborative workplace.

    Cons

    Government bureaucracy made for a slower process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leadership should be more aggressive and not overwork/take advantage of middle management. Personal growth is somewhat limited.

    Pros

    So much mismanagement you can do what ever you want, for the greater good or for personal gain

    Cons

    incompetency at all levels of management, political appointments based on who you know. Managers are are moved around when they show that they can not do the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop losing 200 million dollars a year with stupid projects. Break up the networks and let the hospitals compete and grow their customer base. Decentralize, decentralize and decentralize some more. The central office management will never succeed they just want to keep their high paying job. They never leave because no one will hire them because no project is ever completed and everything is over budget.

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

    Pros

    Exposure to challenges, great place to gain experience and contribute new ideas. I akin it to a medical resident wanting to working at a trauma-one facility, you will be exposed to so much and actually have a chance to contribute directly. My experience base gained from 10+ years has been wonderful - I so am glad I worked for NYC-HHC. Would love to work there again.

    Cons

    Typical safety-net/municipal bureaucracy/red-tape issues when it comes to labor relations and operational changes. Its like turning a oil-tanker at full speed, it will eventually turn, just takes longer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help break down barriers, so that staff can get the job done. Create greater sense of responsibility/accountability with the medical affiliation(s).

    I have been working at NYC HHC full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Like any NYC job you will get a pension and health benefits on retirement if you hang around long enough. Most employees are friendly and accommodating. Plenty of room for career growth.

    Cons

    There is a tendency by management to hire subpar department directors. The directors should know more than the direct reports about the department's line of business.

    Corporate Culture is the Weakest Link

    I worked at NYC HHC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are handfuls of quality managers and individuals who are truly skilled and passionate about the public health mission of the organization. The pay scale is somehwat higher than it is for other city agencies, although below market rate for most porfessional titles. A lot of the benefits are on par with city employment, including vacation and sick pay, although the benefits related to pensions and health care have been curtailed due to the 'fiscal climate' of the past few years. Union jobs are stable, but non-union employment is not.

    Cons

    Not the best in terms of corporate culture. The organization is extremily bureaucratic and siloed, and fifedoms and thier associated pettiness proliferate, resulting in low employee morale, impeded productivity and high turnover in some areas. How you are treated and your advancement opportunities can be a total crapshoot based on your manager. Human Resources is not empowered and often performs little more than a clerical support role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The overall corporate culture is the biggest drawback.

    CORROSIVE Health Care System

    I worked at NYC HHC full-time

    Pros

    Passionate Providers, Nurses, and supportive professional staff

    Cons

    Corrosive leadership, disconnected board, and city politics tied into making money for the top, grandfathered, unskilled lifers. Administrators have great offices and catered food, when patients do not have enough clean seats in the waiting area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent! Proper training and a more resourceful environment for the entire treatment team is critical.

    Pros

    Most people who work here are very nice. Some of the best coworkers I've had - down to earth and real

    Cons

    Management is not the best, and not the nicest - neg=office politics, ignorant top-down management, and uptight managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    increase office morale - better pay, better options for work, more respect for teams. etc.

    Pros

    You have a job for life as long as you show up for work, sometimed you don;t even have to do that. Free healthcare.

    Cons

    GET AS MUCH MONEY WHEN YOU ARE HIRED!!! There is No compensation for performance. You just have a job to fill a slot. Upward movement to another group is not rewarded with compensation, only more work. I was told when I started by several co-workers not to work too hard (HHC Culture).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HHC should recognise and try to hold on to people whos performance evaluation ratings are 01 - Outstanding.
