    I have been working at St. Francis Hospital Roslyn full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for St Francis as a coder for 8 years. Great working environment. Supervisors care about us and very flexible.

    Cons

    Changes take a long time to be implemented. They pay much better than they used to. They still need to upgrade the salaries

    I worked at St. Francis Hospital Roslyn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Good Salary
    -Loan Reimbursment/ Tuition Assistance
    -Opportunities for growth
    -Good place to begin, but after a year, get out. It's not a great place to stay. The turnover is high for a reason!

    Cons

    -Micromanagement
    -Patient complaint or mistake = Write up before any discussion
    -New monthly on call policy
    -Very poor staffing- nurses do a ton of ancillary work and ancillary can be extremely rude and resentful.
    -I never felt like the hospital genuinely cared about the staff and nothing was ever good enough.

    Advice to Management

    -Care for your nursing staff more
    -Make your staff feel valued

    I have been working at St. Francis Hospital Roslyn part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -You will learn a lot about patient care, and a lot about yourself too.
    -Always have overtime available
    -Tuition reimbursement and health care available if you work 3 days a week or more
    -Some of the RNs, PAs, NPs, and MDs are extremely intelligent, hard working, and kind. Same goes for the majority of the support staff that keep the hospital humming. Smile at someone and they most likely will smile back!
    -Lots of diligent equipment to make patient transfers safe and easy.

    Cons

    -Unsafe patient ratios on telemetry floors.
    -Super high turn over leads to chronic short staffing on all floors. This makes the job very difficult. As a nurse extender my ratios have gone as high as 18:1. Impossible to get the work done, and every shift is short. Patients get frustrated and angry when they feel their needs are not being attended to in a timely fashion; staff gets frustrated and angry when expected to do the work of three people.
    -Super high turn over leads to constant influx of freshly graduated inexperienced nurses with 7-8 patients each. See above vicious cycle about patients and staff.
    -Management does not take an active role in correcting the behavior and performance of nursing staff-but always push Press Ganey numbers down our throats.
    -Antiquated payroll and HR systems do everything on paper, takes forever to get anything done. Almost everyone I've dealt with in payroll, HR, and employee health has acted like I'm inconveniencing them by asking them to do their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Try to focus on retaining quality employees. Remind your physicians and executives that their jobs would not be possible without the hard work of nursing, transport, and janitorial staff. Hold managers accountable not just for Press Ganey numbers, but for the actual satisfaction of their staff.

    Stop claiming to be a Christian institution and just act like one!

    Pros

    Good health benefits, stable environment. Company shows growth

    Cons

    some aspects are difficult - IT is terrible to work with, way behind in computer software/hardware - working in a new practice, very low budget, don't have a printer, can't even purchase pens without having to justify. Very low pay for Executive Assistants.

    Advice to Management

    Come into this century - with regard to purchasing, IT development, software, hardware, office equipment, supplies - going electronic in all offices.

    I worked at St. Francis Hospital Roslyn part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the staff are friendly and professionally helpful.

    Cons

    Favoritism in hiring and promotions. Falsyfying data to cover up certain bad acts of those in favor and assigning negative data to scapgoats.
    Part-time-float compliance department, instead, large amounts of money wasted to pay for counterfeit services of Nixon Peabody LLP.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Alan Guerci and Ruth Hennessy, then, hire professionals.

    I have been working at St. Francis Hospital Roslyn full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good relationship between co-workers. Very important for carrying the job throughout the day.
    Upper management tries to maintain the employees overall satisfaction. They try their best to manage the financial aspect so that the hospital stays in the black.
    Good medical insurance, although it became very expensive lately.
    Clean, safe, equalitarian environment.

    Cons

    Management doesn't ONCE asks the employees of ideas and suggestions about improving things in their department and/or around the hospital. Some of their ideas are anachronic. They haven't stepped into the 21st century yet - they don't use democratic management. They use the old religious style - pyramid management - with the top person holding all the power.
    Lower management is a little too controlling. They seem scared about how the departments' performance reflects on their own evaluation. So they worry more about their seat than anything else.
    The no retaliation policy - the official hospital policy - dilutes down the management tree.

    Advice to Management

    They need to take some lessons from Google style of management.
    Once in a while ask employees for suggestions and ideas about improving productivity, reducing waste, improving flexibility. The people that do the actual work will have the best ideas - not the pencil pushers behind the desk. Presently, employees ideas are sporadically used IF some manager accidentally overhears them AND IF that manager thinks it might be a good thing to implement it. Otherwise the idea dies with the conversation.

    Pros

    Great patients who appreciate staff

    Cons

    Being part of Catholic Health Services means profits from SFH are skimmed
    Benefits are below par - including health insurance and pension
    Offices are small and dirty
    Suspicious and retaliatory management
    Doctors with behavior that is aggressive are not dealt with
    No management development

    Advice to Management

    Devoted deserve the basics: clean and appropriate work space and decent compensation and benefits. Managers who bully nurses and employees are a threat from the exec team to mid-level supervisors. It's time to confront their behavior and show your employees you care.
