    I worked at New York Presbyterian Hospital

    Pros

    With so many different nursing opportunities, one can always find the right fit. I would likely have continued working there had I not moved back to Florida.

    Cons

    Cons for me is having a bit of a southern accent. It's difficult enough with all the varied languages spoken, then add a southern drawl! Staffing shortages prevalent as is in most hospitals.

    Current Employee - Programmer Analyst II in New York, NY

    I have been working at New York Presbyterian Hospital full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great salary, benefits and work / life balance.
    The hospitals desire to put patients first also mirrors what they want for their employees.
    I love my team and the organizational structure.
    There is room for growth since the organization is large and NYP keeps on taking on other hospitals.
    2 day orientation at the Griffin Room at Cornell campus was beautiful.
    Everyone I've met so from any department / campus was very professional.

    Cons

    The hiring process is lengthy. This isn't necessarily a con. It's just a big organization and NYP has many hospital affiliates / departments. Mine took about 2-3 weeks where others mentioned to me at orientation, it took months.
    Since I came from a smaller company (70 employees), coming into a big organization (10,000+) made me feel a bit overwhelmed because there are so many managers for different departments / campuses and the culture was different. However, NYP has various resources and tools available for new hires to get all the info they need with Infonet and company wide emails.

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

    Pros

    Get to work on the cutting edge of medicine and help save lives

    Cons

    Bureaucracy and meetings slow everything down. Can't seem to get rid of the bad apples that are stuck in the 1980's

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on some specific issues and don't change the "project of the day" constantly

    Current Employee - Cardia Care in New York, NY

    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.

    Current Employee - Nurses Aide in New York, NY

    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.
