    Great people to work with but managers are deceptive and do not follow proper procedures.

    Volunteer 2007 neurology and 2012 ER/ED

    Former Employee - Volunteer
    Former Employee - Volunteer

    I worked at New York Hospital Queens as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I learned to interact and perform in high demanding, stressful and hectic environments.
    Personally grew more patient, understanding, and empathetic, through the patients and visitors and the few nurses , administrative staff, and other clinicians that I had the chance to interact and work with.

    Cons

    Most of the administrative staff were pleasant and courteous; however many of the nurses were rude. It really depends on which floor your on. I understand that the ER/ED can get hectic and crowded nurses being nasty and rude or unpleasant to patients is wrong, patients are coming because they are in need of assistance even if its the common cold or a small cut on their hand. I felt there were very few nurses (and i am across many of them) that followed ethical and moral codes.

    I worked at New York Hospital Queens full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good location, Lots of pathology - this is about it.

    Cons

    STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE like the plague. Unless you are desperate for a job, I would never want to work here EVER again. what may seem at first a charming to-be boss, seems very easy going and supportive. But once you are in, it all turns into something that is more than meets the eye. There is a mass exodus from this place for a reason. All the physicians are running away faster than can be hire. That is why positions keeps opening up.

    If you want a coffee, get ready to be yelled at. If you get caught surfing the web, get ready to be yelled at. If you need a personal day, get ready to get coverage by yourself or be yelled at. If you are pregnant and need an ultrasound, be prepared to be asked to submit your resignation/get yelled at/beg for a personal day. You want to plan a vacation? Well be prepared cuz it wont be approve unless its the day of as the schedule is never ready nor ahead of time. The schedule is out the day prior so nobody ever knows whats going on -- you will be place you on days, nights, swing hours - all over the place...cuz you know why? nobody will be able to do anything about it.

    The whole team is being worked like dogs to cover any and all services to the point of sweatshop work. Get ready to do 18-25 admissions in inpatient and observation unit ALL BY YOURSELF! You're tough and you can handle it right? - WRONG, cuz here, you have no supporting ancillary staff! Get ready to transport pts by urself! Get ready to put IVs in yourself! Get ready to be harassed by nursing staff as you ARE AN INTERN! you will not feel as if you are an attending! why you ask? because of the top down culture which makes the hospitalist a...sadly to say "everyone's intern"

    If you need a job & money to pay the bills...go for the job, but you will see within 1 month of working here that it will be the biggest mistake of your life. You can pretty much work anywhere for prob a bit tad lower salary and have a trillion times better work life balance.
    BE WARNED!

    Dont believe me? Go in for an interview and ask the above questions to any of the other hospitalist working there right now and the best question to ask anyone of them is..."when are you leaving"...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want the hospitalist to feel like they are working at a good place, at least support them. Show that you care and they will reciprocate in return.

    Pros

    It is located in a convenient location.

    Cons

    It depends on the people that you know to make it in the hospital.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management in some departments must learn to have more of a listening ear. These situations happen more in the Nursing management department that handle Unit Clerks.

    I have been working at New York Hospital Queens full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Hospital is always trying to be the best in the business. Very competitive. Provides excellent care to patients. Passes inspections with flying colors. Very good medical/surgical staff although has lost numerous brilliant surgeons to other institutions in exchange for diversity. Excellent customer service and pastoral care. Excellent security dept. Excellent Radiology dept. I would definitely recommend medical and surgical staff and admission to hospital except for Emergency Dept.

    Cons

    Redundant management
    Too top heavy with clueless inefficient supervisors
    Certain clinical director and her posse of managers bully, threaten and intimidate staff
    Inability to convince HR of pervasive bullying by management.
    Nursing is heart and soul of hospital yet management doesn't want to give the nurses who are ready to retire ANY medical benefits until Medicare becomes available, leaving many bedside nurses without health insurance. An atrocity.
    Parking is beyond difficult. Abundant free parking for MD's, administrators and management.
    Very little local parking for staff. Have to take shuttle bus form Van Wyck. Inconvenient and unreliable.
    Emergency Department is overcrowded, understaffed and filthy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No use. Employee surveys convey dissatisfaction among staff yet no changes are made to make a more cohesive relationship.
    Save money by cutting the amount of clinical directors, supervisors, asst. nurse managers.
    Allow staff to critique management and then take it seriously.

    Pros

    Compensation is the only reason to stay at this hospital.

    Cons

    Management is critical, outsourcing and cuts are being made left and right. What was once a solid career path is now risky business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the suggestions of your staff and stop trying to overrun everything.
