    Pros

    Good community hospital in a great neighborhood in Brooklyn.

    Cons

    Weak protections for employees. I went to Human Resources because I felt my boss was abusive and emotionally unstable. Colleagues had told me my boss had a history of picking on one person in the office. HR never helped me and my boss fired me within days of my "confidential" meeting with HR.

    Advice to Management

    Doctors without budgetary and managerial experience should not be made department heads.

    Pros

    Maimonides has some of the most extensive computerization of the patient care record in the country. The MIS department is convenient to public transportation.

    Cons

    Management operates from the view that bullying is good and does not know how to interact with a professional staff. It is difficult to create a team to work on improvements and go-lives because it is like a revolving doors. Some project managers are worse than others and therefore their team is constantly changing. It is not uncommon to have an 8 am meeting scheduled on the same day as a 5 pm meeting for a 9-5 position. Then management will call you in and ask why you left 5 minutes early. 'My or the highway' is a phrase often heard within the confines of the former auto garage, now the MIS department, across the street from live chicken industry..

    Advice to Management

    Change the entire upper level management's mindset. Physical and verbal abuse needs to stop.

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

    Pros

    Good doctors and services. Some coworkers were nice.

    Human resources and management are very unprofessional and straight up mean.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with some respect. We're not dogs. Keep this up and you'll lose all your good staff.

    I worked at Maimonides Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some Middle Mgmt & co-workers decent, kind, people to work with. But many, back stabbers & worse Most Nursing/Medical staff are ok.

    Cons

    Upper Mgmt only interest is to keep cushy hi-paying jobs & treat workers like garbage. Make dumb deals with outside vendors for tons of money that lines their pockets.

    Advice to Management

    RETIRE. Take small pay cuts, instead of firing hard working dedicated worker bees without ever making a single announcement. Mgmt should step down ASAP. Learn how to treat hard working staff.

    Pros

    Pays by the hour under the union. Good benefits from the union.

    Cons

    Literally I'm hitting my second year of working here at MMC and work just piles up. When I was hired as a temp for someone on maternity leave and when that person didn't come back I was hired at permanent part time 9-1pm M-F, as a physician's secretary. Now I have to cover each of my coworker's work whenever someone's on vaca and sick days on top of what I'm already doing. There are days where I really have to ask someone to cover my work for 2 mins to run to the bathroom. Can't take vacation because seniority has first dips, even holidays and whenever you want to transfer to another position within union, seniority gets first dips too. Dead end job...if you have a degree don't work here, I'm speaking for administrative work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more competent people and not the lazies and complainers who throws their work at someone else. Also someone computer savvy.

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

    Pros

    If in the 1199 union no co-pays for any Doctor.

    Cons

    When I was interviewed never asked if I spoke another language. I have voluntarily interpreted but, have refused b/c pay rate is the same as someone who speaks only English.

    Advice to Management

    Negotiate with the Union if hiring billingual staff will pay extra amount for that staff member.

    Pros

    The 1199 benefits, learning skills that will impress future employers, many loving co-workers.

    Cons

    Where do I start? They expect you to do more in a 7 hour day than is humanly possible. If you request overtime, they question your time management skills and refuse to give you any after a few times. Many people in my dept did unpaid overtime. Micro- managing and too demanding. Many colleagues faked seeing a patient and falsified documents to be in compliance and not face disciplinary action. Management is aware of the falsified documents but doesn't take action.

    Lots of bullying. Lots of arguing and shouting regardless of department. Management calls you at home to bully for taking your rightfully accrued sick time. Many staff come into work sick because they fear disciplinary action, putting colleagues and patients at risk of contracting what they had. 1199 is great for benefits but the delegates are burnt out and don't come to your defense. They are more interested in their outside advocacy work and the political action fund. Delegates sabotage because they know less than you do about the by-laws and they aren't trained enough.

    A staff member forcibly touched me and tried to give me a massage when I said I was tired. I reported it and my manager and I couldn't get a response of what happened for 2 months until the guy tried again. Then the HR lady wanted me to reenact how I said no in front of senior staff. "Was it a gentle no or a firm one?"

    Too much focus on patient flow. Literally during weekend meetings, if quota is not met for discharges they will review the census and pick who they can discharge even though the patient was not medically cleared.
    Too much gossip, enough extra marital affairs going on.

    Much more. I can't make this stuff up. I won't reveal other experiences in order to keep my identity hidden.

    Advice to Management

    Your terror tactics are killing the culture and hurting productivity. What else can I say? It's too big a mess for some advice to save the system.
