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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, starting pay, and location 34th ST
    Great co-workers and team atmosphere
    You will definitely learn a lot and grow your knowledge
    Good work-life balance

    Cons

    High-volume of work sometimes it felt like we were just putting out fires.

    MMCC tends to be the catch call before the RNs.

    As enrollment grew so did the workload but not the staff luckily we had a great realistic and supportive manager who pulled help from other departments as needed.

    Office moved to Brooklyn. Which lead to my resignation. Would love to return to this company but there are few remote opportunities for non-clinical staff

    Advice to Management

    Continue to remain a strong patient-centered company and in-tune to the needs of the staff as well. Consider remote opportunities for the non-clinical staff.

    I worked at Visiting Nurse Service of New York full-time

    Pros

    -Majority of my colleagues were amazing to work with. They were the main reason I got up in the morning and went to work
    -Great medical/dental/vision package
    -wonderful learning and development training options

    Cons

    -Outdated management
    -lots of red-tape to get things done
    -very low pay compared to other companies
    -members of the protected class are ESPECIALLY underpaid
    -Leadership is not very diverse. It is still very white. Majority of people who got promoted or received substantial increases were white. Very disappointing. Trying to ask for a raise was like pulling teeth.
    -Culture is incredibly corporate and stuffy. VNSNY needs to do something to refresh their image.
