Cons: late nights

Clinical Technician (Former Employee), New York, NY – March 13, 2014
Pros: well established organization
I worked as a clinical technician for 3 years and I must say this was one of my favorite places to work! Most of the staff was great to work with and many of us developed long lasting friendships. Upper management often played favorites and should've cared more about their employees. Clinical techs were always treated like second class and never appreciated. – more... Overall I enjoyed my job and the people I worked with made it worth while. I guess management doesn't like when coworkers become friends :) – less

Saftey Associate / Administrative Coordinator (Former Employee), New York, NY – January 6, 2014
My role here focused on general operations (logistics, problem solving, administrative functions, research). Personally the hardest part of the job was as a person without a medical background (ie- being a doctor or nurse) there were areas I felt I'd have liked a greater understanding of the specifics involved in the work we were doing - even though – more... I was qualified to do my aspect of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job however is that I certainly learned a great deal about complex subjects which I felt made working in my next few jobs easy since the components for those jobs certainly wasn't as technical as the requirements in hospital. I'd also add that there was a cerebral element to working here that I enjoyed. – less
Great work environment with fantastic patients and staff.
Patient Coordinator (Former Employee), New York, NY – January 2, 2014
Pros: awesome patients, great staff, family like atmosphere
Cons: lack of advancement opportunities and poor salary increases
As a patient coordinator and senior medical secretary I was in direct contact with many different people who were sick to differing degrees. I was able to use empathy and compassion to help them get through a difficult time in their ailing health. I provided them with a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, and support during their sickness. I always – more... pushed for insurance companies to cover whatever medical treatment was requested by the doctor and made sure that the patient themselves did not have to worry about anything that had to do with their insurance companies. The best part of the job was seeing my patients get better and come in happier and feeling well. – less
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), New York, NY – December 22, 2013
Pros: one on one patient/parent communication
Cons: small department
The Adolescent Psychiatry Department is a small department consisting of three Administrators. I am considered the "nucleus" of the department. I answer phones; respond to Drs. emails; submit travel reimbursements and all administrative duties. I enjoy being in the public and communicating with the children as well as their parents.
PRACTICE MANAGER (Current Employee), Hematology and Medical Oncology – September 19, 2013
Pros: great benefits
Cons: salary, backing from management
I have run a variety of practices and worked for and with a variety of executives but never felt so un-appreciated. The College and Hospital do not work hand in hand running such a large practice I get more backing from the hospital than for the group I run and work for.
