    staff who actually care about productive and professional work relationships that serve the members and community

    Cons

    no policy system in place; choice compliance, choice operations, choice products/plans; management, hr

    Advice to Management

    2017: Run far and as fast as your time to submit a job application will allow you to. The salary is not worth the condescending and unprofessional interactions between management and staff.

    VNSNY CHOICE Compliance, Operations, Administration:
    1) lacks structure, organization, and consistency PERIOD.
    2) there is a false sense of hope. There are ongoing budget concerns i.e. teams dismantled, departments laid off, or positions discarded.
    3) there is constant worry of whistleblowers divulging VNSNY CHOICE's worst practices. Furthermore, there is reorganization of something every month based on how a manager/VP/Chief felt the morning she/he woke up.
    4) continues to struggle and fail. In light of these large scale struggles and failures there is tiny progress not success.
    5) their goal to improve operations is attempted with displays of disrespectful and condescending interactions in meetings. It is unfortunate that their work culture is tolerant of workplace bullying. Staff are immune to the bullying to even know the difference.
    6) offers dysfunctional money-hungry Medicaid/Medicare plans to a community of members who should take their business elsewhere. Ms. Wald and Ms. Brewster would likely shutdown VNSNY CHOICE operations today.
    7) more importantly, there is no effective policy standards or systems in place to reinforce anything. NO budget in the past several years (or to date) to commit to any sort of policy efforts = refer to bullets 1-6 above. Imagine money-making bobble heads in their offices (or cubicles) at VNSNY CHOICE.

    For your own well-being please DO NOT consider joining VNSNY CHOICE else you will be disposed of for:
    a) not being submissive to managements shenanigans,
    b) for doing your job the right way, and
    c) for asking questions about (or challenging) the nonsense management and staff dish out.

    This is your detailed warning.

    Lastly, if you are a current member (or a potential member) please consider the above from an employee's experience in your decisions regarding membership under a plan at VNSNY CHOICE.

    "At will employment" is a saving grace. DO NOT go to HR…remember they will protect themselves first and side with management.

    Be well.

    I have been working at Visiting Nurse Service of New York full-time

    Pros

    You learn a lot about health care.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth. A lot of personal feelings get in the way of business. If you're not a nurse they think you can't move up the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone isn't a nurse doesn't mean they don't know how to manage and direct. Being a Clinician doesn't give someone grounds to be a manager or director.

    I have been working at Visiting Nurse Service of New York full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most co-workers are a pleasure to work with. The pay is competitive for the work being handled.

    Cons

    Most management personnel act like a collection of senior girls during high school lunch, very gossipy and controlling (power hungry). Micro management is a company motto. Management also does not like to receive any criticism and one can expect a personal vendetta brewing even when provided in the most professional of manners. Anyone at this company can be terminated at any moment and everyone is consistently worried over job security. Also, many times you are indirectly hinted at staying after hours to finish work but given huge backlash or hoops to go through to be compensated (which I am pretty sure is illegal).

    Advice to Management

    Macro-management is best. Nourish and appreciate your employees or they will seek reassurance elsewhere. Make it more comfortable for employees to come to management with inquiries (considered the unthinkable by some employees) by providing a more safe, non-judgmental, private conversation and most importantly professional space.
