Amazing TEAM work!
I have worked literally every shift possible over the span of 11 years in the ED as a Tech. I learned more about disease processes, medication, pediatric vitals, pediatric conditions vs. adult. I learned more about Nursing as a Medical Assistant then I have in actual Nursing school. Winthrop has come a LONG way, they will only become stronger after the complete merge with NYU.
Co-Workers: Every place has its issues. What's different here is most of the time, if something is skewed, it's because someone is having an "off day" as we all do, the culture (more than the ENVIRONMENT if that makes sense to you) is of teamwork, even when one link of the chain has a bad day, the Pt. comes first because of a co-worker's ability to compensate, show compassion, understanding, and further provide for that individual & their pts. Especially in the Peds ED. We ALWAYS LEAVE OUR BURDENS @ THE DOOR PARTICULARLY WHEN IT'S NEEDED MOST! PT. CARE IS NEVER COMPROMISED...by the NURSING STAFF.
I will say that the Peds ED has better communication between Tech and RN, the doctors explain what and why they are doing ABC...they care about you as an individual. Over time, you learn how they work, most of the time, you will know which doctor prefers what, when, why, and they always VALUE and TAKE YOUR ASSESSMENT into consideration. The nurses in the PEDS ED go OUT OF THEIR WAY to TEACH their TECHS why they ask them to do certain things. You are very appreciated, educated, humbled and ACKNOWL

Entry Level Position
I adore this job. I have a bachelors in psychology and was granted the opportunity to work in the inpatient psych unit. Everyone is very welcoming and professional in their work. People were receptive in teaching me, and helping me gain experience in the field, as well as conduct myself in a professional environment. I didn't like that I didn't have time for myself. I worked 9-5 and my weekends would fly by, and days would drag. I made a decent salary, but not a livable salary if I chose to enjoy the finer things in life. The food was decent, and employee areas decent. I truly fell in love with the team I was working with. I'm going to miss them a lot, but I know I must move on to bigger and better things. Going in I wanted to see if I'd still want to pursue psychiatry after being in the field. The answer is yes and no. I would love to be a psychiatrist, but it's huge expense, commitment, and stressful pursuit. Right now I realize I want to exercise my other responsibilities, a more challenging work flow, and a higher paying position, because I do believe in a comfortable quality of life, as well as a livable income. Being in the union really gave me a safe haven. I got paid fairly decent, and had great health insurance. A hospital isn't exactly an up and coming start up company with modern amenities, they maintained the old school tradition, a new school approach. I came into lutheran knowing my christian faith.

Lack of appreciation for the healthcare workers
Working for NYU langone in the main site of Brooklyn and affiliated Clinic Sites like Parkridge etc; have changed dramatically for the employees.
It has been a total nightmare and treatment towards us are borderline abusive.
Since the Pandemic we have been short staffed and working as a skeleton crew. Yet management have had little or no compassion for Us "the essential workers". We have to do our regular job tasks, plus the extra work from those absentee workers. Those job tasks are left to be fulfilled by us or else we suffer the consequences, to the extent of being written up.
Management & Supervisors have no compassion, integrity, or respect towards the employees, they literally close their doors and won't hear anything you have to say.
It's all about numbers and how great they look in the regional managements or higher executive eyes. They demand 100% from a less than half staff. The added st ress to the already stressful position, has many of the workers feeling sick and overwhelmed. The Registration Representatives receive worse treatment.
Their jobs are endless, with many details of which you cannot possibly accomplish within an 8 hour shift.
We are demanded to fulfill what we were hire d to do plus; call patients for no shows, recalls, appointments reminders, checkin, checkout and Virtual phone visits, on a short staff.
This makes it hard for the staff to administer quality care to all patients equally.

Enjoyable for many years until changes in the regime
A typical day at NYU involved being greeted by many coworkers who truly became like friends. Not every department had this facet but I was lucky for a while. Once i saw other departments, i quickly learned that you could feel unwelcome by often young employees who put in a few years and were unfriendly and quick to make you feel inadequate or try to do so. Physicians were mostly friendly and appreciative but learning was geared more towards residents/fellows and mid levels were treated like interns most times.
You can advance with time and effort given to a better position. Compensation was fair and adequate and the annual increases were better than most other institutions. Environment is clean, pleasant, and many upgrades have been made over time and NYU continues to grow and succeed as an institution. Often times co workers can become friends.
As a major con were some in management postions (one female Mgr in particular) being allowed to abuse her position by making so many staff miserable who would complain about this person. Despite complaints by multiple people within the department all the way up to Human Resources, many problems were swept under the rug. If you seek to be world class, you have to be willing to expose the problem people and remove their position if it's being abused.
I would work in this hospital again since it is a great institution, with many talented staff members, but management needs to take staff complaints seriously and make wa

A Great Job To Have However Alot Of The Workers Complain About Working there
A typical Day at work for me was me getting to work on time, My superior hands out the assignments. I look over my task organize my work gather all the tools I need to get the job done and im on my way to complete my work orders. when my work orders are finished I go to the office to see if there's any more work orders to complete. I learned about how to maintain the boilers High pressure and low pressure, I learned how Important it is to be on time and to work as a team.
management at the job in my department sucks they have there favorite employees who they let do what ever they want. they stereotype you and talk about you behind your back spread rummors, they are not to be trusted, its sad but true, I stay to myself alot, I do my 8 hours and go home.
the culture at the work place is getting better NYU is bringing there way of doing things and its hard for the old Lutheran employees to break out of there old lazy cut corner take your time way of doing things. The Hardest part of the job for me is dealing with the other guys in my department who dont like me and would talk about me and lie on me and just make it uncomfortable to work there. The other hardest part is trying to prove to my supervisors that Im not what the other workers and supervisors say about me.
The most enjoyable part is learning new things I can use outside of work, seeing the work that I do still there when I go back, and just being able to support my family.

The WORST company to work for
NYU is the worst company I’ve ever worked for. First of all, management is incredibly unprofessional. They do not care about your well-being, they do not care if you are being treated unfairly, they do not care as long as they still get a paycheck— YOU do not matter. NYU plays favorites. If you don’t kiss their butt then you will be treated terribly. This place is catty. This place is a joke. And not just one particular office, NYU as a whole is like this. The HR specialists that set up hiring are unprofessional. I don’t know how they have jobs. The office I worked at did not follow health protocols. It was a very dangerous place to work, especially during Covid. They had employees taking other employee’s shields because they were to lazy to grab their own. Management wouldn’t allow employees to answer the phone, because talking to a patient on the phone would waste our whole day when we had other things to do. Then patients would be upset they don’t get their refills on time or questions answered because NYU doesn’t CARE about their patients. If they don’t care about employees, why would they care about patients? So gross. I will NEVER apply to another location again. The whole company is terrible. Yeah.. the pay is great! But the mental anguish and BS you go through is NOT worth it. I rather work retail than work at this joke.
ConsManagement, work environment, HR representatives, catty employees, employees that don’t do anything and make one person do it all, overworked, understaffed, under appreciated, disgusting practices, dangerous environment

High pace workplace
A typical day at work consisted of me taking control of the post-op recovery room where patients would go to recover after surgery. I maintained a circulation for the nurses whlile directing patients to vacant beds and filtering thier progress through our system so that family members could keep track of progress. I learned about many different types of equipment as well as their functions. Management however, was very weak. Employees would do as they please and management did not have a sense of control in the workplace. There was a lot of slacking. My co-workers varied in personaity. The workplace was very diverse with many different nationaities and cultures. I found that I enjoyed working and keeping myself productive, whereas my co-workers preferred slacking and gossiping. Nevertheless, this did not affect my performance. I am a highly motivated individual. The hardest part of the job was trying to keep things organized. Organization in a workplace where there are a lot of employees can only work through team work. The most enjoyable part of my job was satisfying the patients. Upon their daparture, often times, patients and family members would come to me to thank me for my services throughout their stay. It is a wonderful feeling to be ensured of your imeccable customer service while expressing compassion and understanding towards others.

My Dream Job at NYU Medical Center
Working for NYU Langone Medical Center was the beginning to my exceptional potential in Finance. I started my career as an Financial Analyst Associate working with the analysis and invoicing of federal and non-federal grants.
I managed and submitted invoices to the project coordinator for six clinical research departments. I worked closely with the manager and analyst to assure accuracy and timely execution of documentation and expenditures for quarterly, monthly or annually invoicing of expenditures for payment. I submitted over thirty invoices monthly following all policies and procedures of the authorization submitted from the administrator for NIH funding.
I created journal entries in the general ledger for transferring of fund information. I reconciled expenses that hit after the project period and recorded transaction on the next invoice submission. I worked very closely to all teams assisting with information that they may not be able to acquire because of there obligations to finishing financial reports. I learned a lot from being pro active; now I am able to work autonomously which lessens micro management when completing tasks. I complied documentation for the A-133 and all three years we exceptional with the reports as a team and organization.

Secure work, good benefits, nice people but weak vision, not satisfying & a bit paternalistic
NYU Langone is a big enough organization that your enjoyment of your work will depend a lot on which office you are in. In my section of the organization, which was working with researchers, people were very nice, but I wasn't satisfied with the work I was doing, and I felt that management lacked vision as well as an organizing structure that kept projects moving and that encouraged quality and thoughtfulness. Faculty are trying to take on more and more and in the process can be very reactive. Colleagues also tended to get very bogged down in minutiae, which goes back to the lack of vision and reactive-ness. No one thinks about productive work environment solutions, like limiting what gets done over email, reducing meetings, etc. The team I worked on thought paternalistically and perhaps condescendingly about employee happiness (e.g. having a birthday cake for someone) rather than thinking in a way that respects us as humans and successful team members, such as more flexibility toward work from home situations and bonuses. And even though faculty take great pains to seem progressive and tolerant, one feels as a staff member that the faculty's point-of-view will always prevail, even if they are way outside of their depth in an area.
ConsBad/no management but also weirdly paternalistic, no vision

Good place to work except in the Fertility Center
It’s a great organization to work for overall, just not the Fertility Center. It’s a revolving door of employees. Much of the staff (not all) is cut throat. Unfortunately, management of the Fertility Center is burning it to the ground. The staff is overworked and treated unfairly, in some areas more than others. Management doesn’t care about the needs of the staff to be able to perform at peak performance levels. It’s a demoralizing and toxic environment. One of the managers is so inappropriate, and carries on about politics, religion and many other non business related sociopolitical issues that are not proper for any office environment. She’s disrespectful, disruptive and dismissive to her staff and sadly upper management is aware but does nothing. That’s how they’ve slowly turned into a revolving door office. The distribution of work is so uneven that while some drown in unrealistic expectations for any human being, others can shop online or stay on personal phonecalls on the company dime. Until management is held accountable for their actions or lack thereof, and actual start listening and working with their staff that do the day to day dirty work and are in the trenches, the ones that know what would make things better, that office is going to continue to go downhill.
