    Pros

    Great benefits, great doctors and nurses, flexible

    Cons

    Grotesquely understaffed, many middle managers with no degree or high school diploma, high instance of nepotism (majority of staff are related), Promotions based primarily on longevity not education or qualification. Stressful environment to work in across the board. Poor organizational culture.

    Advice to Management

    Place greater value in education than longevity when promoting. Stop hiring relatives and under qualified people. Do not promote people solely based on longevity. Find out what employees are doing to increase their knowledge, identify skill sets, mentor and train. Promote people who obtain graduate and post graduate degrees. They will be better qualified with a stronger skill set.

    I have been working at Metropolitan Hospital Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work is repetitive and easy. The work environment is very laid back and some of the younger staff can be very cool, friendly and welcoming. It is very easy for a hard and dedicated worker to shine. I hear that if your are already an HHC employee it is easier to get a transfer to another HHC position. Free health care and union benefits. Guaranteed health benefits and pension for life after 10 years of employment.

    Cons

    Depending on where you live the commute can be a nightmare. There is very little room for advancement because here it is based on who you know and if your willing to suck up to someone for professional and/or financial advancement. Many people in upper management seem to have been put in a position without the education, experience or qualifications. Many people are just waiting to retire and do very little work if any at all. Your often hired for one position and you end up fulfilling the responsibilities for about 3 positions because there is a supposed "hiring freeze" and management is doing everything they can to control the budget. Many people feel threatened by younger educated employees which provides little opportunity to grow and learn. The pay is a slap in the face if you have a degree.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more room for advancement and growth based on work ethic, education, qualifications and experience. Make sure you hire the proper staff to run a department so that the current employees wont get burned out so fast. Train staff to work together instead of against each other for the sake of the patients. Make sure that the culture and values are not just a statement and that they are actually put into action.
