    Negative Outlook

    I worked at SUNY Downstate Medical Center

    Pros

    The benefits are great, if you have a passion for helping people and want to make a difference in the community.

    Cons

    Management can be unprofessional, undermining & demeaning at times. A lot of culture clashes as well and a tremendous amount of patience is needed to deal with management!

    Advice to Management

    Learn to respect your workers & remember that the institution doesn't employ children so management shouldn't treat employees as such!

    I worked at SUNY Downstate Medical Center for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As a state employee there are great benefits (healthcare, leave time, union). Many nice and interesting people.

    Cons

    Very hard to get things done with the bureaucratic culture. Many grumpy, rude people, as well. The Sodexo run cafeteria served straight up gruel. It was not good food.

    "A fun experiment not to be repeated..."

    Professional in Brooklyn, NY

    I worked at SUNY Downstate Medical Center for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary, benefits are great. Doing something as basic as answering an email promptly will garner you extraordinary praise.

    Cons

    The senior management is a nightmare on wheels. Anyone with talent or drive is leaving this place like it's on fire. If you're innovative or ambitious, stay away. This place is stuck in 1985. Projects started years ago have still not finished. There is zero digital presence. There is no interest in updating skills.

    Advice to Management

    Please rehire the Facilities &
