Fire Guard (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 30, 2016
Working with Mount Sinai hospital as a fire guard will enlighten your day each and every time you walk in and ready to start your shift. Staffs inside the hospital are such great exciting people to work with. There's so much positive energy, motivation from everyone, clean and great environment to work around. The hardest part of the job would have to be when all the staffs leaves the clinic at night and I would have to patrol the building on my own or with my partner. The most enjoyable part would probably be meeting new people, different patients and workers coming in and out the clinic, having the kids know you and feel comfortable enough to run up to you and give you hugs and tell you stories about how their day went; everything is worth it in my opinion. Knowing that you made someone else's day, and even better knowing it was only because of your presence. Exactly why communication skills are a MUST in any company along with building peoples loyalty.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 2, 2016
The Mount Sinai Hospital is an incredible hospital system with magnet recognition that provides many opportunities to all of its employees. In the short time that I worked there I learned so much about cardiac, time management, organization, and nursing skills. Though this job was unfortunately not a fit for me, I learned many important skills that I will take with me throughout my career. The managerial staff was always there to help and give support while pushing their employees to be the best they can be. As a new graduate, the job did present some difficult situations such as taking care of 5 critically ill patients at a time, and learning time management skills. The most enjoyable part of the job was working in a team with the other healthcare professionals on the floor, while also making a difference in the patient's lives.
learning and volunteer experiences, great managerial staff
Registrar (Former Employee) – New York, NY – December 25, 2015
The majority of us worked in fear. The administrator was a tyrant. Any down time was ridiculed even when we were using the time to catch up on our notes, filing, etc. We were made to go to other departments and collect their documents to be shredded like dogs. It was very embarrassing and degrading the way the director treated us and we "all' saw the difference in treatment when it came to those more equal to her. My only regret is that we didn't all hire a lawyer to fight for our rights. I still have nightmares about the treatment I would get after calling out or being late to work. Human Resources knew all about her since there was such frequent hiring and firing but did nothing about it. Also, in one full year, I received a 25 cents raise.
Motivation to continue my education so that I may enter a facility that treats me like a human being
Treatment from director, lack of raises, pressure, horrible treatment, no union
Unit Secretary (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 2, 2015
I enjoy working at Mount Sinai hospital for 11 years. I have learned a lot and have different experiences for mount sinai hospital.

Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 9, 2016
I worked here for 3 years with no raise or opportunity to apply for a promotion. We didn't even get performance evaluations this year. Always short staffed, patients wait HOURS to be seen. Awful, disorganized, and despicable. I can't believe I lasted 3 years. I got chest pains everyday in anticipation of the torture I was about to endure. Magnet status us a fallacy...nurses are treated very poorly.

Billing Coordinator (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 6, 2016
I find that the powers that be are more concerned with a quota system than actually addressing the outstanding issues. I take offense to being judged by the quantity of my work instead of the quality of my work. If it were not for the support of my fellow co-workers I don't know how I would get through the day. The hardest part of the job is not allow the constant criticizing to bring me down.
Administrative Assistant II (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 29, 2016

Filthy environment. Lazy Staff throughout facility
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 8, 2016
FILTHY hospital where the goal of pretty much EVERYONE is to do the LEAST amount of work possible and still get paid!!! The "housekeepers" are a joke. The transporters are the absolute WORST. By far, the laziest group of human beings EVER!!! In general, the patients are cared for poorly and very very very slowly. "Team work" does NOT exist here whatsoever! The building is old and tattered and no improvements are being made. Ceilings leak, faucets deliver rusted water, Most of the buildings have old window air conditioner units, stairwells have urine odor, elevators are in Constant need of repair which prevents patients, families and staff from getting up and down, unless you travel via the malodorous stairwells! Take this advice... "You will do better anywhere else" .. That goes for staff and patients alike!
Free BBQ once a year
Roaches, Bed Bugs, Mice. Lazy Staff, Benefits are expensive for family plan
Licensed Social Worker (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 23, 2015
Mt. Sinai provides a good work life balance and good job security. The culture at the hospital can be a slower pace for those who are not looking for a fast pace environment. All the staff at the hospital are nice to work with. Pay is average in good competitive range compared to area hospitals and benefits are ok. Retirement 403b plan could be better only matching 2% after you put in 3%.
good job security

Patient Care Associate (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 30, 2016
Wonderful workplace environment - the people are kind, funny, intelligent, genuinely care about you and at such a prestigious hospital, it will open doors for you further down the line in your career. How ever it can be very stressful and with no overtime compensation - difficult especially if you have to work a lot of overtime with other commitments like school Helpful Flag as Inappropriate Flag as Inappropriate
LPN (Former Employee) – Huntington, NY – October 24, 2016
Very negative environment there now. We did not have a raise in almost 5 yrs, and was expected to take on more responsibilities, work longer hours with less breaks, less qualified staff, and less benefits. The healthcare industry has always been about $, but it has gotten to be the only thing that matters there. Management can be very disrespectful to employees at times.
They waive co-payments for employees for office visits; if you can even get an appointment.
A productive environment where healing people counts
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Manhattan, NY – June 22, 2016
We make everyday count as the objective of the organization is to heal and save life, therefore everyday is always busy making sure we get patients medication to the floors on time for nurses to administer. On daily basis we must be proactive and report every issues arising to the managers to be address in a timely manners. most coworkers are team players and fun to work with. i enjoyed every bit of the job because at first, it was a new experience for me and challenging and i love challenges. learning new medication everyday.
Credentialing Coordinator (Current Employee) – New York – July 19, 2016
The environment of the working place is very peaceful. I would come in the morning a little bit earlier to my starting shift to prepare what needs to be accomplish for the day. I have learned to maintain organized. The managements are excellent at listening and supporting new ideas as well as great teaching. I have a wonderful co-workers who are well to assist if needed. The hardest par of this job was the commuting. The people who I worked with were the best and enjoyable part of my job.
Unit Clerk (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – September 2, 2016
This job was good to get started in the health care system, however it was very stressful being in a major city with only 20 beds in the emergency room when the average patient count was over 50. Being a clerk entailed dealing with the information of every single patient that came into the emergency room. The managers were not nice and constantly micromanaged.
