    I have been working at Maimonides Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Super diverse patient population and co-workers. I was hired as a new grad, and I learned a TON in my first year here. Coworkers are amazing -- lots of nurses who have been nurses for longer than I've been alive, wiling to teach you and help you learn. Great benefits package as well. Orientation as a new nurse was very thorough and I felt supported. The pay is fantastic.

    Cons

    Always, always, ALWAYS short staffed, especially night shift. NYSNA ratios mean nothing when you just don't have the staff to supply the floors; results in sometimes dangerous staffing ratios.

    I worked at Maimonides Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -I worked in External Affairs so my position was completely unrelated to administering care, but it seemed like most of the hospital offered truly great medical care.

    -Health benefits were excellent.

    Cons

    Low pay. High turnover. Limited train service nearby. Few options for food in the area. Many New Yorkers are completely unfamiliar with Maimonides.

    Pros

    Great benefits/paid time off, great team work on the floors!

    Cons

    Management doesn't care if you are short staff - Will float RNs to other floors even though the floor is already short staff as it.

    I have been working at Maimonides Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many people have been there a long time >20 years. This leads to a family feeling. There are sufficient supplies. Good salary. Union benefits

    Cons

    Upper level management is a bit detached. Some poor attitude.

    Pros

    Great pay without a college degree, union benefits, 4 weeks vacation per year, lots of overtime if you want extra cash, and health benefits.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime, intense micromanagement, cold people that have been there for years and hate it but it's their job so they stay miserable. No room for growth unless you become a pharmacist

    Advice to Management

    We know it's a hospital and patients lives are at stake but it wouldn't hurt to create a warm and nurturing work place for employees to feel like they have a safe place. If your employees are dreading coming to work, there is a problem.

    Current Employee - OUTPATIENT ADMINISTRATION

    Pros

    Leading hospital in Brooklyn for DSRIP and innovative new medical technology. Multifaceted structure with labor unions in a strategic alliance approach which strengthened your skill administrative skill set in negotiations and team based approaches.

    Cons

    Salaries are NOT competitive. Does not consistently hold all staff to the same high standard of performance. Not effective in getting rid of poor performers, instead they just move the problem to another department.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries to be competitive. Offer existing employees meaningful salary increases. This is the only way you can hope to attract and retain the talent needed to achieve your lofty goals in an increasingly competitive market.

    I worked at Maimonides Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    You work with some bright, committed people. It is a fairly small, community hospital, so you get to know people, at least well enough to place faces and names

    Cons

    Poor pay. Caters to ultra-religious community to the point of doing/allowing things that no other hospital would get away with.
