Hostile...Tense working Environment
Medical Assistant/Patient Care Coordinator (Former Employee), New York, nyc – May 2, 2015
Pros: Paid vacation, sick time, 1 hr lunch, personal time
Cons: Supervisor was bias
I learnt that just because it may be a prestigious organization you are working for that the people in the high positions don;t know how to handle authority. That favoritism and bias still exist in the workforce. People are scared to voice concerns in fare of losing job.
Certain co-workers were a pleasure to work with, while others were bullies. The hardest part of the job was the hostile environment and division, management was poor.
Overall I gained knowledge of what an ENT department is because I was only familiar with pediatrics and general medicine before. The most enjoyable part was interacting with my patients and the few good people I was able to work with.
Administrative Aide (Former Employee), New York, NY – April 15, 2015
Coming into contact with such great minds and being so close to different medical professionals of such renown and being of [any] service to them and the institution served as a pathway to my administrative career.
Research Fellow (Current Employee), New York, NY – February 19, 2015
A typical day for me begins with checking work related emails and responding to questions about projects my boss may have had. It continues on with various projects throughout the day. I was able to learn a lot about working in the laboratory and how to actually do experiments there. My co-workers are very pleasant and easy to work with. The hardest part of my job is the commute everyday. It is quite long. The most enjoyable part is my work environment. My boss and manager are fair and genuinely want to help you succeed.

Observed staff eating and drinking where specimens are collected. Some staff seemed robotic in dealing with the patients. Training site different from work site, so "training contradictive".Staff Trainer passive aggressive.
Research Instructor (Current Employee), New York, NY – December 23, 2014
A pretty normal routine but at times can be challenging. I have learned to work as a team as well as independently. There is room for improvement for management. Co-workers are friendly. Sometimes you have to deal with consequences due to inept management. I love the kind of work I do and I enjoy it thoroughly because it gives me satisfaction that we lead the world in our areas of research.
Computer Support Technician (Temp) (Former Employee), New York, NY – December 22, 2014
A Typical day at work depends on the Techs and Calls Received. I learned alot in the 3 months employeed. Management is slow when a new employee joins the team. And I had no proper guidance and training provided from the management. Never an issue with the Co-Workers. The hardest thing of the job is to satisfy the users but importantly keeping quick assistance to the users. Enjoyable part did not get to be part of the ITS team.
