Overall Reviews at Mount Sinai Health System

Clinical Nurse | New York, NY | Jun 25, 2022
Productive and Strong-Minded Working Environment.
PROS: I started with MS as an NA, then PCA, and then RN. The good thing is employees are prioritized over non-Mount Sinai incoming. I was hired quickly after graduation. It's a teaching hospital, so you learn a lot. As a new grad, they'll support your transition with selected knowledgeable preceptors and Nurse Residency Program (NRP). They provide good pay (Starting with a 6-figure), benefits, & tuition assistance if you want to further your education. There is diversity, teamwork, and strong leadership to see everyone is at peace & comfortable. Trust me, they DO NOT tolerate haughtiness, laziness, or insolubleness. CONS: Work expectation is tedious, so you have to work hard to meet their demand. Experience is required before hiring. Frequent shortage of staff. Unavailable parking space & high payments. Hard to get in.

Great place to work and advance your career
The team I worked with was fantastic, I enjoyed my time at Mount Sinai and would advise any health care professional to join this great team!! I had the opportunity to work at a Family Practice located in the hospital, unfortunately, a full-time opportunity was not available to me based on seniority. I had to take another job a the fertility clinic, I enjoyed working at both locations.

Nice environment
I liked the environment I worked in at the main hospital. Its a small community so you get to know a lot of the people working in hospital. Its close knit and felt like a good environment to grow. I left because I moved but otherwise would still continue to work there. Pay could have been better though compared to other major hospitals.

Good coworkers
Some co workers are good but management not so great. Penalize you for using your sick days. When trying to use vacation days, they approve who they favor first even if you put in your time before anyone else.
Clerical Associate | Manhattan, NY | Jun 6, 2022
Decent work place
Not that much room to grow since many people held positions for many years. Convenient location near many trains and buses and stores to get food from
ProsConvenient location
ConsNot that much room to grow
Food Service Worker | New York, NY | Jun 9, 2022
The stress is not worth the money. No advancement opportunities, no encouragement from Management. Overall it is not the place you want to retire from but you can use it as a stepping stool. Pay is not bad!
Handler | New York, NY | Jun 22, 2022
Good at first
At first I was excited but then you wet the management staff and they have no respect for the people working for them. They forget that you’re human and are extremely rude and condescending.

No room for advancement in my position. Stressful at times but easygoing. Some friendly staff. All are hard working and trying to help the patients get their benefits.

The work at Mount Sinai is enjoyable, however the hours are long - often work 16 hours
The job required to be performed at the hospital proved to be very challenging at times, which made the work enjoyable. Often times, I performed patient watches in the Emergency Department and in the Psychiatric Ward, where I was required to monitor patients who were at risk of being aggressive and on a Form 1 or 3. The most enjoyable part of the job is having the ability to perform a variety of duties, as opposed to performing low-level, tedious tasks. The job has taught me the importance of report-writing and keeping up-to date, finely-detailed reports - an important part of the job especially if an incident leads to a lawsuit. The hardest part of the job is being required to stay longer than the standard 12-hour shift on days where a relieving officer is unable to attend work. This makes the job very tiring, especially where the shift begins early again the following day. My co-workers are very friendly and hard-working. They treat the staff and patients very well. Many of them, like myself, are interested in a future career in policing. This makes working with my colleagues easier, as we share common ground.
Prosperforming a variety of tasks (i.e patient watches, morgue releases, patrol duties, door access), rotating schedule
Consworking 16 hours shifts regularly
Technician | Toronto, ON | May 14, 2016
Challenging work environment with heavy and consistent workload.
A typical day at work followed a shifting work routine depending on which shift I held in a given week. I worked at a different station each week for a total of 4 weeks in a cycle. Mostly it involved organizing and wrapping test tubes and beakers, learning how to be as efficient and fast as possible. I would then move to sterilization of contaminated glassware and would deliver sterilized glassware from the autoclave machine that was switched out. My manager was very kind and helpful but not always present as she was a manager for a rather large area of the institute. She left a co-worker to help me get used to everything with a steep learning curve. The hardest part of the job was the language barrier and communication difficulties I had with my co-workers and the fact that we were on completely separate pages, me being new and interpreting things from the bottom up and them being older and used to how everything functioned exactly according to a set routine. It was hard to understand each other most of the time and became frustrating at times. The most enjoyable part of my job was being in a hospital environment and being able to work shifting schedules depending on the week.
ProsSalary and hours were amazing
ConsCo-workers were hard to work with

Excellent Workplace Culture Hospital Wide
Work is easy to manage, can get busy at times but not overly stressful. Learn a lot about the mental health act and required forms, and mental health in general. Management is great, very understanding, no helicopter/micro managing. Flexible scheduling as long as you can cover your own shifts. Unionized. Culture overall at Sinai is awesome. Lots of system wide things going on, presentations, speakers, town halls, mindfulness/wellness events, staff appreciation, etc. Lots of social awareness including LGBTQ2S+, systemic racism and bias, Indigenous representation etc. Hardest part of the job is getting up early in the morning. Most enjoyable part of the job is the fact that I can work stress free, and the overall environment/co-workers
ProsOccasional free coffee hospital wide, culture, stress free, good benefits for full time staff
ConsEarly mornings for the night owls, no benefits for part time staff
Referral Coordinator | Toronto, ON | Jan 16, 2017
This clinic very badly needs to shut down indefinetly
Poor communication between staff members, even worse between the employer. Employer is always 2 hours late for the clinic. Extremely rude as well as the medical administrator. Have never encountered such unprofessional-ism in 15 years in this business. The medical administrator is very rude, stuck up and slam talks the patients to co workers as soon as they are seated. Doctor has zero beside manner with his patients. The HR department is also very unorganized and not willing to help with anything. Very slow and the overall experience of working in this hospital was a nightmare. I do not recommend anyone working in this clinic and if you have to deal with anyone from the HR department, good luck! absolute horrible and dysfunctional working environment!
ProsMoney was good and the location was convenient
Conseverything else
Senior Laboratory Technician | Toronto, ON | Jun 14, 2018
A good company to work for!
There are 2 locations of the Ambulatory Lab. that we rotate to and 1 location where we only do Phlebotomy for 2.5 hrs in the morning and we go back to the hospital to complete the rest of our shift. All 3 locations are very productive, we cater to different range of patients since from 7 yrs old patient to Geriatric patients. On a busy day we see about 300-400 patients in all 3 laboratories combined, and this attributes to my strong skills in Phlebotomy. I learned to deal with irate patients due to sometimes long wait time, but we are trained to deal with upset patients by dealing with them professionally and compassionately. I face challenges on a daily basis but everything can be handled through communications among co-workers, good inter personal relationship and team work. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting people and interacting with them face to face.
Co-op Student | Toronto, ON | Jan 8, 2013
Serious and respectable workplace
I would do a lot of filing and answering the phone on some occasions at first to get a handle on how things were in the office. Then I was able to follow different nurses and do some ultra sounds and communicate with a lot of patients which was one of my favorite things to do during my co-op. I learned a lot, I learned what kinds of patients go to high-risk pregnancy, how to file, proper and respectable way to answer the phone and address patients and their family members, and how to communicate well with patients and how you relate to their situations. The management and co-workers were amazing, very nice people and as well very understanding. They taught me a lot. The hardest part of my job was having to see what the patients go through, especially when building a good bond with them. The most enjoyable part was how well I formed a bond with the patients.
Prosgreat work environment
Receptionist | Toronto, ON | Jun 20, 2016
Fast paced and productive, staff members are extremely helpful, very efficient and well organized clinical environment
The three doctors whose clinics I was a surgical oncology receptionist for, all had different expectations of how the clinic is run. They were patient and kind with me, allowing for a positive learning environment. The management is organized and well equipped to deal with staffing changes and impromptu clinic days and other emergency circumstances. Co-workers, especially nurses and the surgical secretaries to the doctors were extremely friendly, helpful and multifaceted when it came all the different responsibilities that needed to be fulfilled for a clinic to run smoothly. The responsibilities did not seem overwhelming and the patient interactions were always pleasant. All in all, a very enjoyable experience.
Medical Office Assistant | Toronto, ON | Aug 29, 2013
I loved working at a clinic and helping people and just being there for patients that just need to get stuff off of there shoulders
A day at work is always busy with clinic, booking patients for procedures and the tasks that I need to do to book clinic and procedures. As well as answering the phones with any questions that the patients might have. With my everyday tasks there is always something new to learn which is exciting, I always like to learn new skills to upgrade my expertise. I love working with patients and know I am there to help by talking with them and getting them the appointments they need as soon as I can. knowing that I can help people in any way makes me feel really good. The hardest part of the job is knowing I can do everything to help a patients that is really sick.
Prosdoing whatever i can do to help someone
ConsNot being able to help everyone
