    Pros

    Good benefits. Good pay but could be a lot better

    Cons

    Too much work with not enough employees. They fired 6 accessioners before xmas 2015. Been working less then a year and I already seem a lot people come and go. Management team needs to be considered. Crazy shifts and Overtime is mandatory. Productivity Goals are so unrealistic. They want you work you like robots and work you down to your bones.

    Advice to Management

    New management team, realistic goals. We need two consecutive days off for the overnight team. Feel like Ihave no life.

    I have been working at North Shore-LIJ Health System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    the good benefits package hold you hostage.

    Cons

    nepotism, favoritism, unprofessionalism due to the hiring of family members rather than capable staff. The laboratory keeps growing in terms of work being done but staffing is not increased thereby causing more stress to the staff already had. There is absolutely no growth unless, once again, you know someone who will promote you. Quality work is ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and make changes necessary.

    Pros

    NSLIJ is a rapidly growing, innovative workplace. Opportunities to learn and to grow professionally seem unlimited. I'm getting support to pursue an advanced degree and I work with a group of people who are intelligent, curious, and excited about NSLIJ's future. It's also a very diverse workplace - every race and religion included and respected.

    Cons

    If you are uncomfortable with change then this might not be the best setting for you. The health system is large and growing - and constantly innovating. Things change quickly here. I find it exciting, but, others might not.

    Advice to Management

    Just hoping that Michael Dowling is not planning to retire any time soon!

    Pros

    North Shore Long Island Jewish Health system offers very good benefits. It is one of the largest company on Long Island.

    Cons

    The connections are more important than anything to be able to move up within North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System.

    Advice to Management

    The connections are more important than anything to be able to move up within North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System; not the knowledge or experience.

    Pros

    One of the best PROS working for North Shore LIJ Health System is that no matter what you do, it influences how patient care is delivered.

    Cons

    This Hospital system has become Corporate America. I understand there is a need in order to sustain operations but the least they can do is take care of their employees. We are the ones who have taken NSLIJ to where it is today and it's sad to hear employees re being let go before of budget reasons. How about let's stop making acquisitions that don't really make sense?

    Advice to Management

    One hand washes the other. Pay attention to your employees. Turn Glen Cove hospital into "mama-urgent center" and deploy patients do our other hospitals as needed.
