    I have been working at North Shore LIJ Health System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Progressive leaders; wants to be innovative and lead the way in Healthcare; great benefits and team members who really care about doing a great job caring for our patients and one another. Great career development opportunities and lots of different ways to advance if you are a self-starter and willing to go the extra mile.

    Cons

    Healthcare is very challenging and changing all the time. Can be long hours. Can be variable deadlines and tight turnaround times. Not all healthcare workers want to change and so progress can be slow at times. Not all leaders great ones. But the changes are coming and those that embrace them will win.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more, tell the troops what is going on.

    I have been working at North Shore LIJ Health System

    Pros

    High performance, innovative health system
    Technology is advanced, ahead of the game
    Good pay, depending on position
    Great physicians

    Cons

    Management is authoritative
    Add on extra hours to shift with no notice and penalize you if you can't stay
    Unfriendly co-workers in other departments - seem to be in a bad mood all of the time and make it difficult to communicate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people so there is less mandatory overtime for the current staff
    Lead with encouragement and positive reinforcement, not by instilling fear in employees
    Possibly have attitude/communication workshops, or focus on the importance of friendliness and respect in department quality checks
