    I have been working at North Shore LIJ Health System full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    They are a big supporter of continuing education.
    Benefits and sick time are a definite plus.
    Great place to work if you live on the Island.

    Cons

    Extremely difficult to move to another field within the system and there isn't anyone dedicated to helping those who wish to do so.
    Middle management tends to get looked over in terms of salary and other benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for the talent that is within your area, even if it means losing that valuable employee to another department.

    I worked at North Shore LIJ Health System full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits, for the most part. Pay is better than competing hospitals/institutions. We really believe in great health care for our patients, and that is a positive.

    Cons

    My pay was frozen for 3 years. No real opportunity for advancement. Management tries to make the health system a 'fun' and 'great' place to work for, when it really is just ... bleh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop it with the conventional tactics to make it a 'better' place to work in. Start with systemic and grassroots changes.
