    I have been working at Hospital for Special Surgery full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good pay, most position have room for advancement. If you can get in on an entry level position it's fairly easy to transfer to preferred department once a position opens.

    Cons

    Advancement and promotions don't always seem to be based on merit. While the pay is good they're aren't any real perks for employees, i.e. Free parking, small cafeteria. Also this is not a unionized company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in parking options for employees, outside work hospital activities would also foster a stronger affinity for the company. This would make a very big difference in how employees view the company.

    The people and culture are amazing. The IT department is the best I've ever had a a chance to work with.

    Pros

    Fairly Good benefits work great credibility for resume. Good contributions. Connections.

    Cons

    You cannot express your political opinion if you support Trump. This hospital is full of bullies who are not open to opinions and will harass you if you have an opinion. If you work here you're expected to just shut your mouth do your job and not say as word. . I am scared to speak my mind for the fear losing my job.
