    Pros

    The bare minimum - a paycheck

    Cons

    (CHSLI) Company Has Serious Leadership Issues. Raises are NOT given each year. We got a bonus this year but only if you've been with the company for more than 3 years. Less than 3 years received NOTHING. Basically a sham hiding behind the catholic shield. Don't work here. You've been warned.

    Advice to Management

    They won't listen to anything you have to say when it comes to giving them some constructive criticism.

    Pros

    Small and everyone is like family. Good stepping stone to get your experience here and transfer somewhere else.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to other hospitals in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Everything comes down to money! Management needs to staff more people on certain floors. Most of the PCA's have 11-12 patients on the 1st and 2nd floor.

    Pros

    Learn a lot in regards to telemetry/cardiac

    Cons

    Treat you like a slave, mean and condescending to new nurses. No new nurse support, patient ratios too high for acute patients (7:1). No lunch breaks ever offered on my floor. 1.5yrs working here and never got a lunch break. No nurse autonomy, no trust in nurses. Bullying among nurses and management. Negative environment. Culture of blame. Very high turnover, stress level and responsibility of nurses are too high. Not enough help and when you voice your concerns they are not taken seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Lower your ratios and make your nurses happy if you want your nurses to last

    Pros

    Small, family like environment. Everyone knows everyone's name. Noticably excellent team work on most all units.

    Cons

    Short staffed everywhere (nurses, physicians, PCAs, secretaries, housekeeping, pharmacists- you name it and they short staff it), on the lower spectrum of Long island hospital salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Give your workers the means to do the great work they were meant to do.

    Pros

    CHS offers many opportunities for growth, improvements, staff training, etc. Overall, the office I worked in was surrounded by great people, a fun staff.

    Cons

    CHS is a great company to work for, do not get me wrong. However, CHS would benefit from broadening services offered for mental health/referral, especially with regard to the care management team; there were some great people I worked with that should have been given more opportunity. One worker who relocated, who was an amazing therapist and supervisor, was initially told she could but then wasn't allowed to be given the opportunity to work as a tele-worker form her new state, simply b/c CHS did not yet have a policy/procedure around this. However, CHS fails to realize the world is moving in that direction, insurance companies have tele-health workers all over the world. A telephonic position like care management lost an absolutely amazing role model, supervisor and therapist when they chose to not let her remain on the team from her new state. There was nothing the CM cannot do from home, being everything is online and over the phone. Not to mention, the CM team was merged to CHS from a previous company and there is a previous worker who DOES work from home, from another state.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is strictly for care management; take care of your workers that are making a difference with the patients and staff. You're losing very good staff due to not broadening services, poor supervision, favoritism, etc. Offer previous staff their job back, even if it means a NEW policy/procedure, because the loss of some staff in recent months, has completely diminished staff morale.

    Pros

    The benefits are average - good. There is opportunity for advancement. Most of the administrative are very understanding of flex time and will work with you. The people you work with on a daily basis are invaluable. These are the people who make each day tolerable.

    Cons

    Lots of nepotism. Substandard raises not guaranteed each year.

    Advice to Management

    Practice open door policy.
