    My experience at Bergen Regional was a learning experience from start to finish

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSome of the best things at BRMC was the kindhearted co-workers that I had the pleasure of working with in the dietary department.

    ConsSome of the cons were the management and their lack of professionalism towards employees. Use the golden rule and treat others how you want to be treated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease take advice and suggestions of your staff in the department. The solutions that you come up with are not always the best. The suggestions from your staff should be taken with consideration because they do the job in the frontlines on a daily basis.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good place to get basic experience, but if you stay too long it will be a disadvantage to be associated with this place.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits are decent, regular raises due to the union. Good place to get some basic experience.

    ConsNon clinicians running clinical programs, emphasis on filling beds so that patients are not always placed appropriately. Management unscrupulous. Most of the people working here are mediocre at best. Very frustrating to work in that kind of environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry treating people with respect and telling them the truth.
