    I have been working at Northwell Health full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A large health system that values innovation, diversity and excellence. Excellent benefits - including tuition reimbursement - as well as many internal programs for growth and development.

    Cons

    We're big - can be overwhelming for some. But - departments and facilities do lots of local team-building activities. I feel like I have the best of both worlds, but if you like a small, family business atmosphere - this could be overwhelming.

    I have been working at Northwell Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I feel lucky to have landed this role out of college. It has been overall a very positive experience. Pay is above market average from what I gather, and the time off is extremely generous.

    Cons

    Some negatives with management in my department

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Northwell Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The faculty are amazing, Northwell has a progressive corporate culture (e.g., LGBTQ+ best-practice-standards didactic delivered by community advocate/stakeholder), and a broad spectrum of practicum opportunities for healthcare trainees.

    Cons

    Administrative/Managerial/Corporate has a LOT of room for improvement with regards to basic safety assurance and emergency-response protocols There are extremely high expectations for patient experience (which I support) but chronic under-staffing and high employee turnover make this impossible without completely sacrificing personal well-being. Moreover, as a teaching/research setting, under-staffing translates to under-supervised trainees having to make clinical decisions that are beyond the scope of their experience and credentials
