    there is some nice people who work there (lower level)

    Cons

    You are not looked at as a person merely a means to make higher up look good.

    Pros

    People treat you with respect and you learn a decent amount. The work is not stressful as they tend to go easy on interns at Touro since they are unpaid.

    Cons

    The lack of stress due to lack of payment leads to the major con. Working here is great, but they cannot afford to pay interns and there is little chance of being offered a job after graduating.

    Advice to Management

    I would set up a more formal internship program if there are resources available. You could get a lot more out of interns for a relatively cheap hourly wage of $8-12 an hour.

    I have been working at Touro Infirmary full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Touro respects work/life matters and most managers allow off time when sick or when family members are sick - Decent benefits - Great work environment - Acceptable job training, great place for new graduates to begin their careers

    Cons

    - Extremely low pay compared to other hospital jobs of the same position - Employees must dual-function in other job categories not outlined in job description - Little to no quarterly pay raises, even though the company stated that there may be performance-based raises after quarterly reviews. But no one ever gets a raise. - Revamped Time-Off policy has good and bad sides to it.

    Advice to Management

    - Talk more to employees and focus on employee satisfaction first and foremost. We understand that patients come first, but when you have disgruntled employees working for you, it reflects towards the patients. - Have departmental goals and quarterly employee outings to boost morale. Give us a reason to jump out of bed ready for the day - Leadership needs to take more accountability for actions and not just "Pass the Buck" on the employees below them.

    I worked at Touro Infirmary full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Touro has an abundance of dedicated employees. There is a potential for Touro to get back on track to being a great place to work.

    Cons

    No programs for personal enrichment or career growth. Unless you are an RN there is no where to go. Human resources seems out of touch with anything other than disciplinary action. A very "punitive" environment with no emphasis on improvement at a personal or system level. When things go wrong management looks at "who to blame" and it is never at the higher levels.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to recognize that it is the dedication of countless employees who have made Touro what it is today. Management does not back up their words with action when it comes to employee appreciation.

    I worked at Touro Infirmary full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work is not hard to do at all if you like fast pace, get good training and love people.

    Cons

    There was a slight chance you would be able to advance, the pay was low, you only get a $0.50 pay raise every 4 year if I remember correctly, you work harder for your pay which wasn't that good to begin with. There is also a horrible turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    I think the workers need to be compensated better than they have in the past.
