    Pros

    This medical facility is a great organization to work for, good benefit plus union protection, friendly co-workers create a well-balanced working environment.

    Cons

    "big company frustration", different departments work individually, sometimes it is hard to get help from, needs to go through many people and different levels. Location is not so convenient, little too far away from train station, long work every day. Needs to follow union rules, not too much freedom.

    Dietetic Internship

    Former Employee - Dietetic Intern  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Dietetic Intern in New York, NY

    Pros

    The pros to doing dietetic internship at NYU Langone medical center is that it is one of the top learning hospitals in the country. NYU also focuses on patient care and you really get a diverse group of patients to work with during rotations. It is a clean, safe environment and located in a good neighborhood.

    Cons

    As with any internship, all preceptors are not created equal and you have to take the good with the bad. Most preceptors were full of knowledge, very helpful, and professional. However, the one or two that were not helpful were so bad that they overshadowed a lot of the good. This experience proved that interpersonal relationships in a work environment are very important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is always working hard to improve and to strive for the best care. I thought upper management did a great job. They were always professional in any interaction that I had with them.

    The compensation is pretty typical for the position. It is a great position if you are looking to apply to grad school and need a gap year position.

    Former Employee - Postdoctoral Fellow in New York, NY

    Pros

    Great place to establish professional/scientific collaborations, either within NYUMC or around NYC.

    Cons

    All about business... which might be a good thing for some people. Like anything else within NYC, it is a very expensive place to live/rent. If you are offered NYU housing, TAKE IT!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your researchers. Facilitate housing options for employees (not everybody can live close to work).

    Former Employee - Office Support in New York, NY

    Pros

    Aside from the close-knit unit in the department I worked at, working here showed me that I needed to pursue a career in a new field.

    Cons

    Management could use a re-vamp. Employees could like they are more valued - at least from my department. Also, the brown-noses seem to get brownie-points such as a pat on the head from the higher-ups. But that's about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Again, Management could use a re-vamp. They should value the employees that do all the leg-work in order to make the Department run smoothly, rather than making it a punitive environment.
