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

    Pros

    Good Union benefits that compensate for the low wages

    Cons

    Difficult to move up out of union jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does not know some jobs first hand, thus they do not understand what is done and what is needed in some areas. There is a problem with under staffing, this has an impact on patient satisfaction in the whole hospital. This is about the Columbia Campus

    Employees are soulless. Class-ism. Not easy to transfer departments.

    Don't block your employees from transferring departments and maybe they will stay with the company.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay, great co-workers to share concerns with after work hours. Good staff training and preparation for duties despite heavy patient loads.

    Cons

    Unhappy workers at times depending on the unit you're working. More physician friendly than nursing; does not yet recognize the value of advanced practiced nursing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current Employee - Physician Assistant Internal Medicine in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    The only positive attribute to working at New York Presbyterian hospital is the prestige associated with the name.

    Cons

    Extremely PA unfriendly work environment. Unacceptable working conditions due to quality issues focusing on house staff teaching service. They treat the PA's like we work in a sweat shop. They do no provide adequate training but expect you to perform at the level of an Ivy League institution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start a reasonable and acceptable training program.
    Try to advocate and protect your PAs as we are an invaluable to health care.
    Find a system that is effective regarding the infrastructure of the service and stick with it; instability and unpredictability are not desirable qualities.
