    I have been working at Northwell Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, great benefits, good work culture. I have worked for Northwell for 3 years so far and have really enjoyed it.

    Cons

    My only complaint is that the company is expanding so quickly that sometimes it feels as though too much focus is being placed on expansion, and not enough on improving quality of work life.

    Advice to Management

    To the nurse managers: advocate for your nurses! Your nurses spend their work lives giving so much of themselves and advocating for their patients across every discipline. They, in turn, need your support and your advocacy. Also: it sounds very simple and basic, but you should say hello to your employees when you see them. Leadership is about influence, and you won't have influence if you don't make an effort to connect with your people.
