    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.

    Pros

    Excellent company with great benefits, large enough to grow. No one gets fired, even if you don't know what you are doing.

    Cons

    Unable to be creative, system too lock down. Micromanagement. Too departmentalize, can't get things done

    Advice to Management

    Reward talent and trim off the dead weight.

    Pros

    The only pro is that you have a job during an economy where jobs are limited.

    Cons

    I worked in the IMCU for three years and the hospital truly doesn't care about the safety and wellbeing of their patients. The employees are so overworked because they don't have enough nurses or PCA's on the floor. Most of the PCAS are not surtified with the SNY and treat patients like garbage. Their is also a lot of reverse descrimination so aside from being overworked you have to deal with being treated like crap from fellow coworkers. The salary for PCA's is $14 an hour which is a joke because no one can live on such a low income unless you live in the ghetto which most of the trashy ghetto PCA's do live. Worst job ever! If you want to make a difference and make good money just go for your nursing and forget being a PCA.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salary for PCA's, hire state certified PCA's who have the training to properly take care of patients, and fire people who promote work bullying. The reason you have such a hostile work environment is because you are scared that if you fire these people you won't be able to hire anyone on that crappy hourly salary or who don't quit after realizing they need to care for 6 critically ill patients all by themselves.

    Pros

    A great place to work if you like to be over worked and UNDER appreciated.

    Cons

    They FORCE the older works out. Kept one who came to work high on drugs and attacked another employee.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the roses! The place has been going downhill since Catholic Health took it over. It was much better when it was New Island Hospital and a much nicer place to work.

    Pros

    Most of the employees are friendly and professionally supportive.

    Cons

    Favoritism in hiring and promotions instead of professional criteria.
    Part-time- float compliance department, but huge money wasted for counterfeit services of Nixon Peabody LLP.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Alan Guerci and Ruth Hennessy. Don't you have professionals within your organization?
