      Montefiore School Health

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You work 8-4 so you're off a little earlier than most people. Work is slow during summertime. Friendly mid-level staff

      Cons

      Not super accessible via public transit if you lack a car. Montefiore School Health does not have a healthy atmosphere. There's a lot of big egos that don't take any kind of criticism well, and staff are dropping like flies. Grateful that this position gave me a foot in the door, but also grateful to be moving on.

      A solid institution.

      Mar 7, 2015 - Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Bronx, NY

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      AECOM is a solid institution, with known excellence in the field of research. The benefits offered resume pretty much to dental and medical, both have co-pay and are not that bad. It is a respected research facility, some great principal investigators and chances for collaboration. It has served me well in the beginning of my career.

      Cons

      The ownership by Yeshiva University has hurt AECOM. Future is a little unclear, and it seems like Montefiore Group might by it off of Yeshiva. This might bring a fresh look that might better the school. Some administrative personnel don't fully value the PostDoc career, and there is room for improvement.

      Good place to do medically-related research, but sluggish bureacracy

      Oct 13, 2015 - Associate in Bronx, NY

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Top researchers in a variety of biological research areas. A highly collaborative, productive, and friendly work environment. Some very modern facilities. Many of the principal investigators are very approachable and easy to work with.

      Cons

      Not enough basic sciences biological seminars. In the older buildings, lab benches are small, offering limited laboratory workspace. Currently, the whole institution is in a period of flux as Montefiore Hospital takes over control of Albert Einstein from Yeshiva University. The HR and benefits administration is very bureaucratic and sluggish at keeping employees well-informed, and the hiring process is very slow and drawn out. Labor unions are very demanding, such as expecting several months sick leave.

      Good company in the past

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I enjoyed my time at Einstein until recently. It was a very laid back and flexible work environment. Most people on campus are very nice and helpful. Able to make friends easily and work well with most. Tuition reimbursement of 100% of tuition costs after 4 years of employment. Convenient enough location. 20 vacation days and Jewish holidays. Usually able to get requested time off.

      Cons

      The threat of bankruptcy and being bought out by Montefiore Medical Center left a bad taste in our mouths. Many of our colleagues were laid off or fired this year and last year. Moral is low. Many PIs and staff members are leaving. It has become more of a corporate environment. Some directors do not get along with each other and has a trickle down effect. Did not get a raise last year or this year. No room for upward mobility in smaller departments.

      Difficult time to be in scientific research, esp at Einstein

      Aug 26, 2015 - Graduate Student in Bronx, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great people/professors willing to take the time to mentor because of Einstein's close-knit Bronx community.

      Cons

      Far from the city, pretty difficult to interact and collaborate (socially) with grad students downtown at Weill Cornell, MSKCC, and Rockefeller. Tough times during Montefiore takeover, lots of good professors were let go. Hopefully, time will allow Einstein to rehabilitate.

      Pros

      Excellent medical school and research center located in NYC - the professional culture is supportive and collaborative.

      Cons

      Still settling in after its rather recent transition from being part of Yeshiva University to the Montefiore Health System just 2 years ago.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      1199 union. Health benefits (for union employees). Generous time off

      Cons

      Since the Montefiore buy out, the already weak administration has gotten even weaker. There is also way too much nepotism going on. It is very clear that your only chance of advancement is through being in with someone high up enough to advocate for you. This fact lowers moral and frustrates hard workers. There are also numerous issues with shared facilities. Bathrooms are unhygienic, there are many issues with broken pipes, people are constantly getting stuck in elevators and crumbling walls and tiles contain asbestos. The salaries are also very low for the work they expect one person to complete. Management also leaves a lot to be desired. Supervisors are often under qualified and over paid. Often times staff are better equipped to make executive decisions than they are. That being said a large amount of staff members either leave (mostly due to lack of proper compensation) or have been let go. Many faculty members are also leaving or being let go since the arrival of Montefiore Management. For a center of higher learning and research, now owned and operated by one of the biggest medical conglomerates in the state, they should really think about having facilities and salaries that reflect it.

      Pros

      Decent pay especially for the immediate area (Bronx), Generally supportive and congenial atmosphere from others. The immediate area provides most conveniences needed.

      Cons

      The current acquisition by Montefiore medical group is causing significant changes and challenges that affecting everything from IT, payroll, and purchasing.
