    I worked at Barnabas Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice people, little stress or pressure (but see cons), good benefits

    Cons

    No decision making, lack of progressive thinking, too much authority given to Corp CFO who is only out to line his own pockets at other peoples expense. Company tolerates mediocrity and punishes innovation. Progressive thinking and creativity stifled at all costs. CEO personable but out of touch with real work conditions of staff on the front line. CEO hires his own family members while longer term staff get laid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at your senior team. Be honest with yourselves about your own compensation and bonuses at the expense of others pay raises. Stop accepting mediocrity. Stop the nepotism.

    Pros

    Stable Company, large network, many positions

    Cons

    Lower end of salary range compared to other healthcare companies.poor health/dental insurance coverage (although relatively cheap), HR very slow, limited advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you'd like Barnabas Health to soar, take part of the 500 million the CEO makes and motivate employees with cash, not flowery empty words. Take better care of our families with better health coverage

    Pros

    The coworkers are great - friendly, helpful and knowledgable. The salary and benefits are good.

    Cons

    The stress of the job is the hardest part but that is true of any hospital setting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While patient safety is paramount, always be aware that your metrics accurately measure that and that your policies are doable.

    Pros

    Large network of hospitals and facilities so there are opportunities to move around within the company

    Cons

    Benefits are not as great as other heath care businesses, seems that management looks out for management and no one is there to stand up for support staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more faith in employees and develop employees skills. Happy employees = better business and work environment.

    Pros

    Work week is 37.5 hrs. Benefits are decent but could be better. You are giving alot of responsibility and autonomy.

    Cons

    Salary could be better in industry. They hide behind their not for profit status as an excuse to not pay more.
    Even though you have autonomy, you will more than likely have the role of more than one job for one salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to be more in touch with their staff.
