    I have been working at Albany Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The availability for overtime is amazing. Administration will work with you on taking time off and is very sensitive to keeping you happy. Best job I have had in the 14 years I have been working. Certainly isn't perfect though.

    Cons

    Too much time is spent on reaction rather than being proactive. So much potential to be had but not being properly utilized. This place is truly a city within a city. Should be treated as such and it isn't.

    Advice to Management

    Proactive, not reactive.

    I have been working at Albany Medical Center part-time

    Pros

    Opportunity to move up. Flexible schedule. A lot of good people to work with. If looking for a long term career albeit medical center is the best.

    Cons

    Human Resources is not always there to back you up. But the employee assistance program is always there for you. Hourly rate and salaries are really low.

    Advice to Management

    No major advice to management. They do a pretty good job doing what they do. Being a manager is very stressful and making everyone happy is just impossible. Just try to have patience and work with your employees as much as you can
