    Pros

    Great hours and benefits from the union

    Cons

    There is a lot of favoritism in upper management. Hard work goes unnoticed and it makes employees less motivated to work hard. Too much gossip in the office hinders productivity of work. Not willing to make changes.

    Advice to Management

    Please be fair to all your employees and try to at least show that each person is an integral part and that we need to work as a team.

    I worked at Maimonides Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are good, but that's the most that I could say about working at Maimonides.

    Cons

    Non-clinical jobs are terrible at the hospital beginning with the HR orientation that is clinical focused to the office space (a house).

    Advice to Management

    There's not much you can do to fix the hospital at this point. it's too set in its ways.


  7. "Understaffed and overworked"

    I worked at Maimonides Medical Center part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Staff members are friendly with one another for the most part. However it is clear which staff members are not as productive as the others and thus these members are not liked by the others.

    Cons

    Specific departments are extremely understaffed and overworked. The hospital expects a handful of staff members to deal with an unreasonable amount of patients and paperwork.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the departments that are

    Pros

    Uses a mixture of new and old technologies. Good learning opportunity. You can gain good solid experience here to put on your resume. You will gain an insight into how IT department operates in a large hospital will a many remote sites.

    Cons

    Management is aggressive and hostile. You get yelled at in front of your co-workers for making mistakes or doing something that management doesn't like. The stress level at this job is very high so you need to have a very thick skin to work at this job. The management talks down to employees, makes nasty comments and discourages any suggestions, changes or innovations. You will be harshly judged for even minor mistakes and not appreciated for any of your hard work at all. It appears that it all rolls downhill from the upper management and it's a pattern in this company's culture.

    Advice to Management

    The aggressive management style and workplace bullying will only drive performance and productivity down. This is not good for the IT department as a whole that deals with complex IT environments.

    I worked at Maimonides Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Having been here as an RN for a few years, I can say without a doubt that most of my coworkers here are some of the most driven people you can find taking care of your friends and family members. Sure, the workload and patient population can be overwhelming at times, but for the most part, people will band together to make things work for the patients. Health benefits were generous, parking is cheap, and nearby the subway.

    Cons

    Recently, there has been a lot of pressure from the top to have the nursing staff do more with less. You can't expect the nurse to take care of several patients, call former patients at home to ask how they're doing, get missing food/snacks, chart all the things we need to document while lumbering around giant computer carts with scanners to scan meds, and "hourly round" on all of your patients. Don't even get me started on "VIP" patients. There is way too much middle and upper management interference for the most part. While some managers lead by example and aren't afraid of pitching in to help their staff, most don't.

    Advice to Management

    Quit spending money on fancy titles and employing various BS programs to "enhance" patient care/experience. If you want high press/ganey scores, talk to your employees and help support them to provide the excellent care that the patients deserve instead of shoving programs down that only wastes time and money.

    I have been working at Maimonides Medical Center (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I learned the ability to make sound decisions based on valid information the capacity to learn and apply new information quickly and accurately.

    Cons

    No growth, under staff, under pay, and no challenge

    Advice to Management

    Listen when your employees ask for help? Give people a chance to shine? Give them time to train so that they can do their job effectively?
