    Pros

    Good life work balance and company values.

    Cons

    No real job training. Management has no real leadership training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to train entry level employees rather than just determining their success rate during the interview process.

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

    Pros

    Great health benefits, a very generous PTO amount which can be used in a flexible manner. On the social media side, NSLIJ really tries to showcase their employees.

    Cons

    Because it is such a large health system, a lot of money can be wasted with the supplies. There is also a lot of red tape to go through.

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

    Pros

    the hours were good. The benefits were amazing -medical, dental, 403b matching.

    Cons

    Micromanaged. If you were 1 min late then you had to make it up during lunch. No personal calls. At all. Couldn't use your cell at all. Had to push a button when you went to the bathroom that you were "on break" that timed you. Terribly micromanaged Led to very unhappy people there and high turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging every aspect of the job. People are miserable.
