    Wonderful Patient Care

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at NYU Langone Medical Center

    Pros

    Excellent patient care and medical treatment. Great teaching hospital. Most modern technology.

    Cons

    Employee treatment is "Department dependent". Ie: radiation oncology

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Department needs complete review. Large turnover. Very cliquey.

    I have been working at NYU Langone Medical Center as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    It offers a best-practice approach to how academic healthcare operates. Funding for research is well beyond satisfactory, so if your interest is in research this is a great place to work. Friendly to workers of all ages and is a great learning environment no matter what stage of career you are at.

    Cons

    EHR/PHI transfer from department to department still needs a few kinks worked out.

    Population Health: Difficult personalities

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I have been working at NYU Langone Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Academic environment is good for work life balance, one administrator is really good and sees employees as people, pay is decent compared to other research departments at other universities, although huge discrepancy between MDs vs all others.

    Cons

    Difficult personalities leads to high turn over of good people. Division head has power issues and plays games. Terrible benefits, maternity leave is unpaid. Rumbling among female faculty that they are being paid less and no opportunity for leadership positions (overall Weird Mad Men vibe). First author a few papers, network, and move on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great researchers do not make good managers--hire professionals who can work along side division heads to manage people, projects, and information.

    I have been working at NYU Langone Medical Center full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It is a prestigious institution to work at, you feel as though you are really contributing to patient health.

    Excellent work-life balance. Great perks (discounts on NYC entertainment).

    Cons

    There isn't a formal training process, so it takes a while to get the hang of whatever job you are hired to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create or support employees who want to create more formal training.

    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Fellow in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Fellow in New York, NY

    I have been working at NYU Langone Medical Center full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They are very meticulous about recording everything. When you need anything, there is a paper trail to make sure you can follow up when something doesn't get done.

    Cons

    They are really bad about reimbusring you for things. You have to wait for months if you need to get reimbursed for a conference you attended.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please provide better benefits to postdoctoral fellows.

    I have been working at NYU Langone Medical Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is tuition remission for people working under the School of Medicine. If you are in the right department, you can make life long friends. The benefits are good (unless you are part of the union. It is a pain trying to get someone who takes it). If you are in the union you have job security (people management is too lazy to go through the steps to terminate employment)

    Cons

    The leadership team is capricious and lackadaisical. Promotions are bases on who know and A LOT of feeding management egos. Hardworking people just get more work. When there is more than one leadership personnel in the department, there is no uniformity when it comes to giving directions to staff members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistency is key and missing at NYU Langone Medical Center. While it is a good idea to open promotions to the whole center, if you have someone you want to hire, just hire that person. It is disheartening to interview for a job when it is essentially for someone else.

    It doesn't pay to be a consultant...

    Former Employee - Technical Consultant in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Technical Consultant in New York, NY

    I worked at NYU Langone Medical Center full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people, both colleagues and the employees that we support are friendly, helpful and quick to give appreciation and praise.

    Cons

    As a consultant, there was no specific place for us to work. We would meet in the basement of a building each morning, waiting to find out where we would be working that day. The management structure is convoluted and the communication between hospital management and IT Management was poor and lacked any sort of organization, which meant that we really didn't discover what we were supposed to do until we actually arrived at the employee location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The organization and communication between the upper management of all the facilities that encompass the medical center must find a better way to communicate with each other and with IT Management.
