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

    Pros

    Been assigned to the Evening Shift allowed me the opportunity to take full charge of all the department's responsibilities. I was able to put my experiences and abilities to full use.

    Cons

    The Cons are minimal if you can call them Cons. I saw them more like a test and a challenge of my ability to fulfill the department's roll in the Institution's customer satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    When selecting employees look beyond the paper qualification into a person's practical abilities and their work passion.

    Pros

    They believe that you should be grateful because you have a job.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment, culture is atrocious, feels more like a prison than a health system. PROFITS take precedence over patients!!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking solely at profits and see yourself as a healthcare provider serving a large population. IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT MONEY! Your lack of goodwill and 'bait and switch' acts will catch up to you. The leaders need a year long Dale Carnegie course!

    "Rn"

    Former Employee - Psych RN in Glen Oaks, NY
    Former Employee - Psych RN in Glen Oaks, NY

    I worked at North Shore-LIJ Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pros include salary, benefits, job schedule flexibility and amount of time off. They also give you cash bonus and school reimbursement for futhering education

    Cons

    Administration can be quite difficult to work with because their main concern seems to be about the money the hospital brings in and less about patient safety and quality of care. They can be reasoned with but usually only after several verbal battles

    Pros

    If 1199 union, then Ok. Unionized positions are ok, else, not sure. Overall, good company to work for.

    Cons

    Some supervisors are king in their kingdom, abusing their power. Some racial issues about high paid positions. Non unionized positions not easy

    Advice to Management

    Oversee managers, perform frequent anonymous surveys

    I worked at North Shore-LIJ Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Professional environment, generous benefit package, lots of vacation days. Great group of people.

    Cons

    The environment in Finance department was too uptight and corporate-like, 'by the book', and not entrepreneurial. Obligatory work on Saturdays during the year-end close, even for employees whose job functions were not directly linked to the year end close. Top-down management structure.

    Advice to Management

    Finance management should learn to evaluate employees by performance, productivity and the final result rather than the amount of hours worked.
