    Depending on which unit you worked in, great chance of racial discrimination/ prejudice.

    I worked at Atlantic Health System

    Pros

    I have no comment at this time.

    Cons

    Could possibly write a book or two, but will keep it short, simple and professional. Constant complaining from co-workers; lack of initiative; seniority means undue privilege, especially if you have comradery with management. On the other hand, if you were the type to mind your own business, get the work done and even go beyond to so call make it " YOUR OWN" as one manager had said; you were likely to be despised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend management to be able to see through their employees and give credit is due. Management means to me, being able to manage your employees, even authoritative staff under your post. Unfortunately, some units work the other way around. Supervisors and clinical coordinators manage "Managers".

    Pros

    Benefits are affordable. Co-workers are friendly they are like a second family. They show employees appriciation

    Cons

    Bias management. They ask you for your feedback and ask what would you like management to work on, but they never really change anything. Theres no overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there should be over time as long as employees are actually working and giving a helping hand to managment or other co workers

    I have been working at Atlantic Health System full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    High performing health care system, financially sound, high quality practices.
    Benefits and compensation are competitive.

    Cons

    The mission and vision of AHS are aspirational and excellent. As another reviewer noted, however, the execution of that vision varies radically from department to department, depending on the leadership. Management is frequently unsupportive, highly critical, micromanaging or else providing no oversight at all. Employees in these poorly led departments are disillusioned, disempowered, and no longer believe in the mission and vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    AHS has become so large that it is challenging to disseminate the mission and vision throughout the system. Perhaps with the arrival of a new CEO the entire C-suite can evaluate how better to accomplish this goal.

    Pros

    AHS is an employee friendly company that is committed to providing high quality healthcare to its patients and their family members.

    Cons

    Staffing is sometimes spotty, causing employees to be overworked and contributing to burnout in major clinical areas like ER.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Culture needs to be transformed into an environment of caring healthcare providers. Very politically driven and its affects are felt in the workplace.

    I worked at Atlantic Health System as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    There is room to grow in AHS if you display dedication and are willing to be creative i.e. find a niche for yourself. There are many devoted and caring people working for AHS. If you are a full-time or part-time employee the health insurance is great.

    Cons

    As others have noted politics at AHS are pervasive. Sometimes the most dedicated and deserving employees are overlooked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care hiring effective managers.

    Pros

    Nurses an doctors are great

    Cons

    You litterally carry a two person assignment. Medications are constantly given late because of understaffing. Management is only concerned about cutting cost even though they make a profit of over 100 million dollars a year. Management has forgotten it is a healthcare not for profit except for the CEO who make over 5 million dollars a year. This while workers run around for twelve hours. It is disgusting. I can't wait to leave and work for an organization who shows some caring for its employees. At this point I only need a little compassion to make me happy. The upper management should really get investigated by the state.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff the hospital properly and stop abusing people who will give their all because they care about the patients. Remember Carma is a witch.
