    Pros

    Good work/life balance, very supportive benefits package

    Cons

    Many projects grant-funded w/o institutional support and therefore subject to termination if grant funding ends. Can be very bureaucratic, which is typical for such a large institution

  2. Very clinical based research institution

    Large, interactive community with a wide breadth of world class research and knowledge.

    Establish junior investigator mentoring and immersion program

    Pros

    Great benefits, health, dental, and much more: tuition assistance after 1 year, and 6% retirement vested after 3 years

    Cons

    hard to move up and negotiate salary, organization is very big and often smaller dept's are not able to provide compensation or growth.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, communication gap.

    Pros

    I've been exposed to a wide variety of transactions/initiatives that have helped me grow my skills ranging from potential real estate deals, partnerships, and recruitment plans, to installing a new financial system, to engaging with outside credit agencies. From day to day, you never know what you might be working on

    Cons

    It is an incredibly poor environment in terms of formal professional development. The onboarding process is very poor particularly for individuals who don't have prior experience in healthcare, and there aren't enough opportunities to meet with and interact with other members of the organization which hinders one's ability to form relationships and discover other opportunities. Human resources does the bare minimum when issues are brought to their attention.

    Advice to Management

    Start with changing the annual review process, for the last several years I've constantly pointed out that the job descriptions and tasks on which I recieve an assement (and determines the merit increase) in no way coincides with the work I'm tasked with day to day.

    Pros

    I worked at NYU Medical Center for several years having various jobs in administrative roles. I started with a really low salary considering cost of living in New York City, my education and background, and experience, BUT I did stay for the great benefits until I got a better position elsewhere. I had three different positions, each one a sort of promotion from the last. I rose up pretty quickly. If you are intelligent and hard working, you can do it. It's not difficult. Salary rose with each position.

    Cons

    Where to start? I worked on the administrative side, so this has nothing to do with clinical or research. I also want to stress that I did not have have any issues with any doctors while working here, only the administrative side! 1) I hated the cliques; the gossip; the fact that it's all educated middle aged women with children who stayed there for the benefits (and I am aware of the hypocrisy of this statement, as a woman, but just thinking about hospital administration brings me back to the person that I was and don't want to be.). The workers could have done something else, could have followed their dreams, but chose not to. I didn't hate the people in general, I hated that they were all miserable there, and took it out on each other, which made everyone even more miserable. It seemed like they were all out to get each other for some reason. Shouldn't we all work together?! They were happy with salary and benefits, but it was just an unpleasant work culture. This isn't a dream job or a career, this is a paycheck until retirement. No administrative job is a career, unless you are really high up on the totem pole. Yet none of the people I worked with strived to get to the top, they strived to get to 5pm... 2) I did the job of my supervisor in all three jobs. As a supervisor now, I understand the difficulties in a supervisory role (too much work, ability to delegate, being approachable, etc..), but this was a bit ridiculous. I know exactly what each of my supervisors were supposed to do because I did all of their work on top of my own work. Instead, knowing that they have an assistant, they took 3 hour lunches, dumped work on me, and expected me to stay late while they left early. You can either manage or you can't, and these three could obviously not. It got to the point that when I left, the person who had taken my last position at NYU contacted me asking if it was just them, of if the supervisor actually didn't do their job. They stay in easy managerial roles for years, knowing that they probably won't get fired. NYU doesn't fire incompetent people (con #4), meanwhile losing competent assistants every 6-8 months, who have gotten much better and much more interesting jobs elsewhere (i.e. left to follow their dreams, like I did). Not all of the managers are this way, there are wonderful ones! Just the ones that I directly worked with were incapable of doing their jobs. But, the fact that I had all three of my mangers be this way, statistically says to me that there are more bad managers than good ones. One manager actually said to me that she is "not a micro-manager", but, then, was given a task by her manager, handed it to me, and just sat over my shoulder by my desk and commented while I completed the task. This was all day every day that I worked in that position. 3) Is this really anyone's dream job? No, this really is a paycheck with benefits. It's paperwork, answering phones, and making sure you smile 8 hours a day doing mindless tasks. It's important work. Seriously and sarcastically. Without hospital administration there would be no hospitals (i.e. credentialing and licensing is key to even having a doctor see patients; organizing lectures and other events helps educate doctors more and advance in their fields; and having an administrative buffer basically leaves doctors alone to do their jobs, which is patient care or research to advance patient care!) It's easy work if you are competent, as I feel most (NOT ALL) are. There are people that do this, and do this well and put in 1000%, realizing how important it is. Being surrounded by people like that is encouraging and makes work worthwhile. However, most people at NYU are not like that. This job was not for me. I left for graduate school several years ago and have never looked back!

    Advice to Management

    I think I said all that I need to say about management in the Cons section.
