    Pros

    Top 100 in Fortune 500 Best Companies to work for. Magnet Hospital of Nursing Excellence. This company encourages growth. Competitive salary and raises.

    Cons

    No mandated nurse to patient ratios, can be as much as 1:8 on Med Surg floors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Safer ratios, more support staff.

    Great Hospital System

    I worked at Atlantic Health System

    Pros

    Great hospital system that truly embraces patient experience and quality care. Offers work flexibility and has excellent benefits.

    Cons

    It is difficult to move up within the organization. Do not believe the review process differenciates performance amongst employees.

  3.  

    Pretty satisfied. Many very kind, helpful people--pleasant atmosphere. Some units are exceptional--some are disorganized

    I worked at Atlantic Health System part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Clinical managers in all units are fantastic--so supportive and proactive in managing their units. Continuing education allows for possible advancement.

    Cons

    One of the very few large employers in the area so much competition for jobs. Very hard to obtain a full-time position for any job (including nurses). Part time is now the norm here which makes all the benefits for (only) full-time employees meaningless to most because they do not apply to just part-timers even if you are trying to work as many hours as you can get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your lofty and idealistic, constantly changing requirements do not translate to practical, everyday management of the units.

    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

    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.

    Very overworked

    I have been working at Atlantic Health System

    Pros

    Learn a lot if you put the effort. Has five adult critical care units, picu and nicu. Also Morristown is a level two trauma center

    Cons

    Very political. Management does not care if you work hard and are a great worker. They prefer workers who are constantly complaining to them about other workers. The laziest will be promoted before the hard workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put education, and skills development first. Plus pay attention to who is actually working and give them the praise.
