    I have been working at Staten Island University Hospital

    Pros

    Great vacation schedule and holiday time. Enjoyed the people that I worked with and room to change positions.

    Cons

    Not much room for upward mobility. Often transfers are kept lateral. Changes have gone on within the hospital and not always for the better.

    I have been working at Staten Island University Hospital

    Pros

    SIUH provided a remarkable clinical experience while i was in Nursing school. They allowed students to interact and care for patients. Nurses were well trained and receptive.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity to enter the hospitals job market. Also doing upgrades and renovations would benefit the community.

    I worked at Staten Island University Hospital full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement and moving around company. Professional and has high standards in policies and procedures. Has union benefits with education.

    Cons

    A lot of reorganizing. Recent layoffs and senior buyouts. There are positions that are covered by unions which may not always benefit the hard workers. Slackers don't have to worry about being let go because they are protected by union.

    Not bad, but no upward mobility

    I worked at Staten Island University Hospital

    Pros

    It is in a convenient location, I had good health benefits, a fair amount of vacation time with weekends generally off, and had fantastic supervisors directly above me.

    Cons

    The lack of upward mobility makes working in that type of job impossible for the long term. Overtime was cut dramatically which also makes staying in the position for a long period of time infeasible. The union strangles the chances of getting raises or bonuses as reward for consistently good work. There is no incentive to work hard, be competent in all aspects of the job, and care about the amount of work getting done. The salary remains the same whether you work your tail off or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The union unfortunately helps and hinders the employees. There is too much protection for those who do not want to work. The benefits are fantastic, but the compensation is not.

    Pros

    Make lasting relationships with co-workers.

    Cons

    Management does not know how to speak nor treat their employees. Good employees are not valued or recognized. Not all employees are treated equal. There is a lot of favoritism by Management shown to certain employees and not to others. Any complaints regarding Management seem to go no where and employees work out of fear not respect for their Manager's/Supervisor's. Salary increases are very low and are not merit based so there is no incentive to do your best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say that upper Administration needs to really look into how middle management manages their departments/employees. All Managers should take in-services/classes on how to speak to their employees and then be held responsible for their negative actions towards their employees. Also all employees should be treated the same, there should not be a difference because one employee is union and the other is a non union employee in any situation. This has been an ongoing issue for some time now that should no longer be ignored like it has been. These matters should all be looked into as it seems that these issues are increasing in many departments and employees would rather stay quiet in fear of retaliation from Management.

    Pros

    Most Co-workers are team players. Build strong lasting relationships with employees you work with.

    Cons

    Managerial staff does not how to treat or speak to employees and complaints do not seem to be taken seriously. Salary could be better and yearly raise increases are very low. The favoritism that manager's show to certain employees and not to others runs rampant at SIUH. Changes need to be made in a big way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Administration needs to take a look into how Managerial staff treats their employees and how most employees work out of fear not resect for the Manager. Also every employee should be held to the same standards whether you are a union or non-union employee.

    Pros

    Largest employer on Staten Island. Close proximity to home.

    Cons

    Management has the attitude if you don't like the way we treat you there is the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Security Dept at the south site is a joke. It's run by 2 single mothers & a guy that used to work at pathmark. No one has any law enforcement background. They look to the retired cops for help.

    Pros

    Excellent hospital to begin a career in, as there are many opportunities to learn new things, and see rare cases.

    Cons

    The hours were not flexible, it is difficult to get approval to use vacation time, and taking sick days is frowned upon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to be more flexible with your employees, and reward good work ethic more frequently.
