Director of Nursing (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 24, 2015
It is very nice place to work. The company has help me grow professionally and personally.I have learned management skills, my co-worker were supportive and we work as a team. The hardest part of my job is to ask the nurses to keep resident and family happy. The most enjoyable part of the job is the overwhelm support I receive from co-worker.
Physical Therapy Aide (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 18, 2015
The work place at AEHCN is productive and everyone works together to get the job done always. A typical day consist of transporting patients, taking vital signs and also providing assistance to the physical therapist when needed. Managing PT's are always nice and communicative. There is nothing too demanding asked of me or any other employee during the job. I love the people I work with and get to work with day in and day out.
Training Specialist (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – January 26, 2015
It has been a rewading time to work for the Einstein Healthcare Network. My time in this field I have been afforeded the opportunity to learn a plethora of new skills, I've met some stand up people and have been able to put my skills from the military to work as well as my creativity.
Medical Admin / Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – December 30, 2014
The work day would start by getting all patient rooms ready by stocking up on medical supplies. Receiving mail, faxes, and forwarding them to our doctors. Filing patient charts. Greeting and arriving patients, checking insurances, and requesting co-pays. Taking patients to exam rooms and taking their vital signs. Giving necessary vaccines, and blood draws. Our day also involved discharging patients, answering multiple-line phone calls, scheduling appointments and taking messages. Sometimes the hardest part of my job was having to deal with uncooperative patients, however we had a very professional team and were always able to deal with tough situations and occurrences. Working as a Medical Assistant was overall a great opportunity and I really enjoyed the atmosphere my co-workers and I had in the office.
Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia – November 24, 2014
The more you do, the more is expected; you are not appreciated. You are always required to jump in and take the lead on a new initiative and still finish your regular assignments which means your days get longer and longer. I've only worked one other place as demanding as this and even that was better because at least you were appreciated. Would never go back.
uninspired, demanding management; the drudgery of it all.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 23, 2014
Einstein is a for-profit organization. They do not care about their employees, especially in the Protective Services department. The management discriminates on the basis of gender (they do not hire female officers). You are EXTREMELY over worked and under paid. They are unable to retain officers as evidenced through the unbelievably high turnover rate. You think you're signing up for security but you're actually signing up to be: a receptionist, a pathologist (removing bodies from the morgue), a mechanic, escort, RN, environmental services, etc...You are the "Jack of all trades," yet the lowest position on the totem pole. Despite all security does, you are treated as if you're a contractor rather than a hospital employee. You will never get time off or even breaks because they are extremely understaffed and unwilling to hire except for per diem positions. Also, there is no room for advancement (the politics are ridiculous). I fortunately resigned after two years, but others aren't so lucky these days; beware of the layoffs.This organization needs a complete makeover, I cannot begin to explain how negative my experience was. Particular management exhibited arrogant, prejudiced, immoral, impractical, patronizing, and most of all deceiving behavior. I strongly suggest that Einstein work of improving the quality of the hospital in general. Customer service is simply non existent at Einstein and they are very invasive as it pertains to employee privacy.
considering the once impressive benefits have been subject to cutbacks. einstein is going bankrupt.
when you resign, they will make you feel like you owe einstein. as if nothing is better or exist beyond einstein.
GREAT management team made working at Albert Einstein very enjoyable!!!
Emergency Department Coder (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 19, 2014
I enjoyed working at Albert Einstein Healthcare Network! The management team was EXCELLENT. My immediate supervisor was well versed in the coding world. Her door was always open and she was always willing to assist (with coding and any other issues). My co-workers were friendly and helpful. The hardest part of my job was travel--from my house to the hospital was a very long commute. This was the only drawback to working at this facility.
Healthcare provider (Former Employee) – Elkins park – February 17, 2014
Old, dark, dingy, cock roach invested operating room. Awful management! A place that allows verbal abuse to take place and does nothing about it. Quality of care is minimal! Wouldn't go there as a patient and wouldn't take my family there either!
This hospital is awful to work for! Like said in other reviews, they do not care about their employees. They want you to work like a slave and pay you nothing!! Terriable management! All they care about is turn over!!
Psychotherapist (Former Employee) – GeroPsych Outpatient Unit at Belmont – November 25, 2013
Typical day at the geropsych unit at Belmont was very easy. The most difficult part was the micromanagement from the supervisors (at times bizarre and demeaning) as well as a handful of very patronizing and icy coworkers. It was difficult to work with the supervisors as they were at retirement age (all above 60 years old, some were in their 80's) and needed constant redirection as they spoke in circles and demanded long winded repetitive and demoralizing meetings. If you spoke out against these demands you were targeted as a trouble maker. It was very annoying at times. This can be a good place to work, but just be prepared to be nagged, targeted, and overall exhausted by weird and inappropriate comments from people in charge.
Cerner Consultant Go-Live Support (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 27, 2013
We would arrive at the clinic at 8 a.m and answer any questions the staff may have or show them where they need to go in the system while waiting for the doors to open at 9 a.m. We would continue to navigate the staff throughout the day to what icon they need to click on to get to a particular screen in the EMRs. I learned that each facility have their own program to fit their needs of workflow. Management was always available whenever you needed to ask them a question concerning what the staff felt might help make their workflow easier. Some co-workers were team players and were willing to help you if you got stuck on what to click on. The hardest part of the job was when the assisgnment was up and you had to leave. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the staff.
the pay, travel, experience and meeting people
not enough free lunches, living out of your suitcases and traffic
Xray tech (Former Employee) – Elkins Park, PA – August 22, 2013
do not work here ! the management is terrible and this company does not care about the well being of its employees. Everything is about the money the company makes, not about caring for people. HORRIBLE!
nasty work environment, horrible management, dirty, lazy people who dont care about the patients
Patient Account Manager (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 8, 2013
Long busy stressful days. Understaffed. Co-worker are a great group of hard working down to earth people who all have the same thing in common, bring in the money. Hardest part of my job is a12 hour day at the office then going home to sign in and work a few more hours, while the most enjoyable is bring satisfaction to patients.
Patient Care Associate (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – March 14, 2013
My day consists of my gathering information form the caller in reference to demographics, test requirements, scheduling radiological examinations, and giving the patient the prep for the exam. I learned that it takes a stern individual to do this type of work because some patients are unrelenting in their bashing. Management was okay. Coworkers bickered too much, and did not realize that management was eaves dropping on them. The hardest part of the job was trying to befriend everyone, and accruing negative feedback about it. The most enjoyable part of the job was the individuals that were grateful to have my voice on the other end of the line.
Inexperienced and unqualified administrators making decisions
Healthcare worker (Former Employee) – Philadelphia – March 2, 2013
This could be a great place to work if they would vet the people they hire. They hire inexperienced and unqualified administrators to run offices and departments. Einstein is all about money and couldn't care less about their employees. They pay you the bare minimum and expect you to over perform. You co-workers may or may not be qualified or suited for the job, but somehow they get hired and sometimes tend to stay and flourish there. There was stealing going on and lots of other dicey things.
Data Coordinator (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – February 8, 2013
A typical day at work started 8 in the morning and ended 4:30 that afternoon. It was like a family in my department. Everyone was there to help with you if you needed it and some wanted to work on their own. Lots of personalities in which is a good thing because you got to work with a lot of different people with their values. I learned how to be an independent worker especially with different research in the projects that were presented such as researching Hepatitis C patients for liver transplant in which how different races and ethnicity were different from each other. I learned how to prepare the business metrics for my transplant administrator as well as put in our monthly statistics for our kidney, liver, and pancreas transplants. Statistics would be how many patients were seen for that money, new patients, surgeries, etc. The most enjoyable part of the job was to work with different varieties of people in our weekly meetings such as different doctors, nurses, and surgeons, You learned something every day when it comes to different procedures and which patients are on the top of the list to get ready to get called for a transplant if an organ is ready. Hearing that a patient might get a call soon for a transplant is the best feeling in the world. The hardest part of the job was that it can be overwhelming at times, but I did have an administrator that helped when needed. If you do not tell your administrator that you needed helped, the job will not get done accordingly. Majority of the time I did not need help, but if so many projects were coming to you all at once, sometimesmore... you needed to tell your administrator that you needed some guidance.less
