    It was good...till it wasn't

    Pros

    There are so many good things about this company. Within the Alumni Association, you have access to many other departments that fall under the SUNY Downstate Medical Center/University umbrella. The best part of my former job was that I learned a lot, and got the chance to meet many people. I had a great boss in Kristian Balgobin. He was one of a kind.

    Cons

    The pay for the position that I held was on the low end. Once I resigned from this role, I noticed that they raised the salary by $10,000. Another con is the fact that since it is a small office, the Executive Director has full control over the office staff without an HR department acting as checks and balances. This is very dangerous in the workplace. There is a board that fills in the gaps, but this is not quite the same. I felt like I was not wanted in my position once the new Executive Director came into the role. My previous boss and I got along really well, and to this day has offered to write me a letter of recommendation. If there was a proper HR department, these matters could of been addressed with them if something was to pop up.

    Critically important healthcare workplace; hospital leadership is problematic.

    Pros

    Hospital provides essential care for underserved community; diverse, committed workforce. Tremendous financial resources are being made available from NYS to improve physical plant and other desperately needed services to community.

    Cons

    Morale is low. Dedicated staff are leaving to get away from toxic environment. Hospital leadership blames everyone else and lacks insight into the role they, themselves play in the negative, bullying culture.
