    I have been working at New York Presbyterian Hospital full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Working for NYPH Is great. I have been working their for 9 years now. I have a month off every year with roll over in case I don't want to go vacation. 12 sick days a year that also rolls over if i don't get sick and 4 personal days every year. Not to mention if I work a holiday I get time and a half and a day off with pay. The benefits are great. Most of that is thanks to my union Local 1199

    Cons

    The work load can be high some days. I thinks its due to being in new york city. Some days we don't have enough coverage for the demand.

    I have been working at New York Presbyterian Hospital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great location, facility, and environment. Nice, friendly, professional, team-oriented coworkers. Management and supervisors are respectful, especially if you are a good worker. Perks, training, benefits, security are excellent. Everyday you meet different people/patients/personalities which can be a positive experience based on how you look at it. 12 hour shifts are a plus : )

    Cons

    Everyday is different and unpredictable which may bring more challenges in trying to put patients first. No paid maternity leave. Hard work, yet rewarding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Caring for NYP employees should be important as well as just the patients. Women employees should have paid maternity leave so they are not forced to return to work because of natural financial obligations, especially when their body is telling them they are not ready. Management should be more considerate and add a paid maternity leave policy.

    I have been working at New York Presbyterian Hospital full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The hospital has the best intentions to better itself and the care our patients receive. Compensation is adequate. I am frequently proud of the care my patients receive. The unit that I am currently on is very encouraging of multidisciplinary decision making in our patient care.

    Cons

    Frequent understaffing issues. Professionalism varies greatly in all levels of staff. Reasons behind decisions made by management are not always transparent. A good percentage of folks that work for the hospital and have direct patient care have no interest in doing their jobs. There is no weekend pay differential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously screen new applicant for motivation and ambition. Clean house and kick to the curb all the folks that roll their eyes at doing the basic requirements their job.

    Pros

    The people you work with are phenomenal!

    Cons

    Pay is terrible and administrative employees are under-appreciated. Stepping into our offices was like stepping right into the 70's. We had to bring in our own supplies as my department very rarely provided the bare neccessities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management- please talk to your direct reports. We may not make lots of money and have big offices but we do know our jobs and we do them well.

    I worked at New York Presbyterian Hospital full-time

    Pros

    they pay good wages for many of their positions

    Cons

    You really have no say in anything that happens in that company. They try and bs you with small huddles and weekly meetings but the fact is that they only do that to try and look good among the staff. They turn everything down whenever you present them with an idea. And if they like your idea they will tell you how it wont work and then implement it 6 months later taking full credit for it.
