Pros: pay for school, you can move around inside the hospital to improve work experience in other departments.
Cons: pricey food, expensive health care, unorganized management, unprofessional managers
Sinai is a great hospital to work and grow at. The environment is warm and welcoming. Everyone from all race and cultures come together to create a peaceful work place. The hardest part of my job is, knowing whats your task for the day. My department "Environmental Service" is very un-organized. You might start your day housekeeping; switch units hours – more... into your day to cover another unit; switched again to do floors. The instability is draining and nerve racking. management has also had many occasions where workers hours were missing from their check causing employees to lose money. – less

Pharmacy Resident (Former Employee), 2401 west belvedere avenue, baltimore maryland – October 11, 2013
Pros: learned alot and connected with patient from different demographic.

Medical Practice Associate II (Current Employee), Baltimore, MD – July 23, 2013
Pros: payroll deduction
Cons: very short break
My typical day includes checking in patients, verifying insurance, obtaining referrals and answering calls. I have learned alot in gastroenterology, like how to verify insurance and obtain referrals. My coworkers are a great set of women to work with, great teamplayers and willing to always help when needed. The hardest part of my job is multitasking, – more... when the phones are ringing and I have a patient I am checking in at the same time and obtaining there referrals and copayment. The most enjoyable part is being able to work with my physicians and being able to travel to the different locations. – less
steep learning curve required with little supervision
Nurse Study Coordinator (Former Employee), Baltimore, MD – June 6, 2013
Pros: kind co-workers
Cons: no on-job training, disorganized department, weak team
atmosphere of blaming and inconsistencies; needed to learn paper requirements of medical research projects, but manage very negligent about providing same. hardest part of job was not being offered any guidance in a field - known to department at initial interview; most enjoyable part of job was interacting with co-workers
Sinai Hospital of Baltimore - Maternal Fetal Medicine is a pleasant atmosphere, but inconsistencies and only a 1% yearly increase are upsetting.
High Risk Sonographer (Current Employee), Baltimore, MD – February 18, 2013
Pros: high tech equipment, excellent perinatologists, beautiful work environment
Cons: inconsistency with standards/rules of the department
Fast-paced, high risk OB patient load in the Dept. of Maternal Fetal Medicine. The Perinatologists are very informative and enjoy teaching. The newest techniques and information is introduced to the staff regularly. Our staff has strong personalities, some of which you may have to adapt. I enjoy coming to work and we all work as a team to get our patients – more... seen and satisfied once they have completed their exam. The hardest part of the job is keeping on a perfect schedule because of patients routinely coming in late for their appointments. Also a huge disappointment of the department is how much inconsistency is within the department whether it's a rule each day or that it may vary with different employees. After much time and dedication to the department, a 1% yearly raise is insulting. – less
Each day at work is pretty decent, however there are times when unexpected emergencies or understaffing can cause dilemmas in the schedule. I have learned great multi-tasking skills due to incosistencies from certain physicians or superiors from time to time, or busy pace at other times. I currently work evening shift and my co-workers are more like – more... family than associates. My manager is very approachable, so I can confide in her without fear or intimidation. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I am making a difference in someone's life in many possible ways. – less
I have alot of responsibility in my current position which not only requires extreme organization but coordination of patient testing. There are some days I am in the clinical area either helping schedule upcoming surgical procedures or performing pre-op or post-op teaching. My job is very rewarding. The hardest part of my job is that when the coordinator – more... of my current program left I was given most of her job duties on top of my own. There are days that are extremely rewarding and others that can be discouraging at times. I find I work feverishly on a daily basis and still feel that I need more time to complete my daily tasks. Working with patients is my passion, my true calling. It is the reason I went to nursing school. – less
Professional level employee (Current Employee), Baltimore, MD – January 16, 2013
Horrible culture, values and management. Hostile work environment. As with the review from the EVS employee, even professinal level employees are treated like children, bullied and disrespected. I have never been in such a horrible work environment. The benefits are expensive and you are limited to seeing Lifebridge doctors (not the best), they have – more... a real racket going with that. – less
