    I have been working at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Impeccable teamwork on mine and many other units. Cares about your career advancement. VERY generous tuition reimbursement program. Amazing employee feedback tools that they ACTUALLY look at. Great salary. Overall, the culture here is quite superb. Having come from another hospital in the Northwell Health System, I can say this health system offers its employees much more and cares much more about its RNs. 10/10 would recommend!

    Cons

    The particular building I work in (Weill Cornell Medical Center) is a bit outdated. The technology isn't as up-to-date as it was at my previous hospital. Considering this is New York's #1 Hospital, I expected it to be better. HOWEVER, they are building a new building for my unit across the street that will open in 2020. I am told it will be better than anything that's out there.

    Pros

    Dr. Corwin and management strive to make the hospital a top rated hospital and ensures the staff's needs are met. Happy staff translates to happy patients.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change a thing. When things work you don't change it.

    I have been working at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital full-time

    Pros

    consider this. Columbia is part of NYSNA, benefits are outstanding compared to most hospitals across the country, I know, I did the research and worked at many. Excellent pension (rare), free healthcare for your family (small copayments, also rare), excellent tuition reimbursement, fantastic paid time off/vaca and good break times...that alone is amazing. Yes Columbia has an older charting system and some older equipment in an older building however, those are easily conquered, the teams are supportive, friendly and smart, and the exposore to complex cases makes you feel like you are a part of greater things in a small club. Almost everyone Ive met has been friendly and easy to work with. research the nysna website rn benefits, fyi Cornell is NOT nysna. No pension there.

    Cons

    older charting system, older beds, difficult to obtain a job from the outside (everyone has been shocked I did)

    Advice to Management

    you have a difficult job but I have been impressed with my management so far. Unfortunately there are always a few that take advantage of being unionized and use it as a crutch for their own poor performance, making it hard to 'clean up' some members who aren't pulling their own weight.

    I worked at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    NYP Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital is one of the best children's hospitals in the country. I grew as a person and as a nurse and I owe it all to the bedside nurses I worked with. I owe none of my personal or professional growth to any of the 4 nurse managers I had in the 4 years I was an employee. I think CHONY utilizes the most modern approaches to Pediatric Intensive Care and many of our patients have good outcomes. The patient population is varied and it is rewarding to be able to care for critically ill children and make a true difference in their lives.

    Cons

    Oh boy...let's start with management. There is HIGH turnover for management in pediatric intensive care, which is bad. In the 4 years I was there I had 4 managers. During my tenure in the PICU, we were constantly short-staffed. NYSNA couldn't help us, and upper level management would placate us by giving us free breakfast and pretending like they understood our concerns. When various directors and VPs came to the PICU to answer our questions, they responded like politicians with no clear answers. While we were severely short-staffed, management turned some random corners of our unit into bed spaces. We added about 4 more bed-spaces without adding anymore nurses. The unit spent so much money paying overtime. It doesn't take a genius to figure out pediatric units across the county generally don't make money, and this is why unit budgets are so restrictive. Inter-unit relations were also strained because of a lack of middle management (because there quite literally was no manager) When I worked there, senior level nursing leaders began to take the first steps towards achieving Magnet status. I knew the hospital had no chance of achieving this prestigious status based on my personal observations, and the grievances of my colleagues who worked in other adult & pediatric units. Please don't let the guise of NYP being a hospital fool you. They are a big business in which their various chief executives receive annual bonuses of $1 million+. Everything comes down to money. If it doesn't make money, don't throw money at it.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN TO THE NURSES
