    I worked at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Provides an invaluable service to a needy community.

    Cons

    Financially distressed organization in which current management does not consider the hard work employees put in on a day to day basis. Management, especially in the Nursing department have been replaced with new leaders and many of the leaders that helped to build a better reputation for the hospital throughout its struggling years were terminated or forced to leave. Top management are prejudice. No respect for union contracts.
    CEO on Glassdoor is listed as David Rosen, which is incorrect. Bruce Flanz was named CEO after he fed Rosen to the feds. It has all been down hill since then.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look on new management structure.
