Working in Central Sterile was very high paced and stressful. Work load was not manageable and Overtime is used tremendously in order to get all the work done on a daily basis.

think 2x about working here
Case Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 20, 2018
This is not the place to work. Fast employee turnover! People quit, and are replaced so often. No way you can advance. Only certain people can be directors, or supervisor's. They are extremely racist. They make the rules up as they go along. Most of the radiology department, left and went to Mount Sinai because they complained that they had no life working there. There was a situation where they fired all the social workers, and did not let them know to the day of dismissal. They have lawyers on standby, due to the ruthless manner for which they treat people. You cannot have a work life balance at this hospital. I don't know anything else to say other than run for the hills. don't let the high salary fool you. I have worked sixteen hour days and because it is an exempt position, you cannot get a penny overtime! So they demand that you stay. Oh my God.
Pros
They have a good name as far as doctors are concerned.
Cons
To many cons to say.

A great place to work and grow
Office Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 10, 2018
I have had the opportunity to be a part of and grow at HSS for the last 12 years. I had the pleasure of being around great leaders, great co-workers.

HSS is a company that believes in their staff and creates avenues for growth. Every year the company continues to grow and expand and this creates the opportunity for staff growth. This is demonstrated by the continues training and development that's provided for everyone.
Pros
Great benefits like; Health care, Dental, Tuition reimbursement, discounts

Toxic environment
Clinical Analyst/Pharmacist (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 19, 2018
Incompetent leadership making unwise decisions.
Anyone disagreeing with the management is branded troublemaker and forced out. Expert opinion and advise is ignored at best and met with hostility at worst. Most expert resources with years of experience had been purged from the IT dept. Unnecessary replacement of allscript EHR with epic caused unrecoverable monetary losses. Bringing in consultants, with less knowledge, to fill in for departing staff, continues to contribute to losses. Job satisfaction of those staying us at all time low.
Pros
pay
Cons
toxic work environment

second trip through high school
Housekeeping (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 20, 2018
Besides getting paid well for your work it is a difficult place to work where there is no job security and a culture similar to high school. Managers gossip about patients (HIPPA violation) in common areas and often make inappropriate jokes about patients and coworkers in common work areas making it very uncomfortable.

Playing favorites
Medical Secretary (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 19, 2018
My actual position here was not the issue. It was management. They played favorites. Many promotions & time off were not decided fairly. If you need time off attitudes & silent treatments were shown. Employee opinions or matters were not handled appropriately. Extreme hostile & unecessary stressful environment.
Pros
Decent wages
Cons
Favoritism/cuthroat environment

amazing staff and coworkers, ability to learn many new things, never a dull day, but little chance for growth within the department. Hard to move up in the company and pay not commensurate with experience
