    I worked at Emerging Health Information Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, lots of IT professionals to work with, lots of room for growth, well processed, lots of money in the budget

    Cons

    The org is somewhat hap-hazard, lots of politics, difficult to accomplish projects, you really need to control your meetings (even if they're not yours) or you will have the same meeting over and over

    Advice to Management

    Focus a little less on bean counting and more on getting the work. Keep in mind, employees with better work-life balance are more productive.

    Pros

    Co workers are great. They are willing to help. Maybe because there is a sense of "us versus them". Benefits are good if you live near the medical center.

    Cons

    Management is a bunch of prima donnas. Certain managers are well known for their poor suitability to the position but remain for various HR reasons. Managers do nothing but produce spreadsheets. They do not plan, they talk in circles, they do not inspire or lead. They essentially threaten and belittle employees.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the managers who are well know to all both inside and outside the company for being incompetent and unsuited for a position in leadership.

    I worked at Emerging Health Information Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The HR team is fantastic. I had to manage a very difficult personal matter, and they were amazing. They were with me every step of the way and accommodated me as much as possible.
    Benefits used to be amazing - free prescription fills, exceedingly cheap doctor visits (with Montefiore doctors), free surgery as needed. It's still much better than most health plans and pharmacies, but every year they seem to further restrict the benefits or add on higher copays.
    The upside of bad management is that periodically, you can end up working under something of a 'rogue' manager who fights to get the right things done.
    GREAT Paid Time Off policies

    Cons

    Benefits that used to be excellent are rapidly being stripped away, but pay has not increased to compensate for loss of benefits
    Extremely difficult to get a raise (either parity raise when you move positions, or even annual raises/bonuses). The company frequently declares moratoriums on raises, despite the fact that their parent company, Montefiore, is regularly acquiring more hospitals
    Management can be exceedingly frustrating/difficult, and even childish/pedantic. There are people who are managers/directors who appear to have no actual qualifications for the positions they are in, as they don't actually know the field/department they manage.
    There's absolutely no room for advancement unless you have a manager that actively fights for you. Even then, your raises and promotions are subject to the whims of a board of people who may never have even met you, let alone really worked with you and understand your contributions and what assets you have.
    Subject employees to illegal unpaid overtime
    They deem all employees as "critical," so in the event of foul weather, everyone is REQUIRED to make it into work. If you don't, you lose a day of PTO, and management may decide to hold it against you/call it an unexcused absence.

    Advice to Management

    Management does not listen, and they never will until their salaries are as restricted as the general population's was. If they were paid by actual performance, skills, comprehension of the company's work, and ability to lead, they'd be making minimum wage.

  8. "It was good but the opportunity for growth is slow."

    I have been working at Emerging Health Information Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Projects are challenging and can be exciting. The people that I work with especially the customers are great.

    Cons

    Obtaining approval for funding for projects takes a long time and timeframes to complete projects can be unreasonable.
    The process to promote someone is very slow. The recognition of the individuals who truly work hard and who have complex skills is lacking.
    Compensation isn't competitive with the market.

    Advice to Management

    Assess the groups and the infrastructure. There are a lot of issues that are just patched and temporary workarounds become permanent. Sometimes there is a flood of new hires but the compensation for the existing associates who are hardworking and dedicated is very low.

    Pros

    If you like immature and unprofessional people some of which have no more than a HS diploma then work there.

    Cons

    Lets see.
    On call 24/7 with no compensation.
    Managers who treat you terribly not just in the professional sense but in the personal sense.
    Example: My manager at the time thought it was funny to make jokes not just in front of me but to me about cancer knowing full well my father was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
    Yeah people. This is the kind of people they hire and that stay below the radar.
    And yes I quit as I cannot see anyone who can do something like this to be fixable.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who not only act like adults but actually are.
