    Pros

    The best place to work with recovering people, they have it all under one roof, detox, inpatient, outpatient and psychiatry.

    Cons

    Some of the employees have been around too long and bare resistant to change; think they own the place.

    Be sure to mix in new blood

    I worked at Bergen Regional Medical Center

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Some 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 ManagementAdvice

    Please 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.

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

    I have been working at Bergen Regional Medical Center full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Non 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 ManagementAdvice

    Try treating people with respect and telling them the truth.

    Pros

    Some of my co-workers. Great learning experience that I was able to bring to my new position.

    Cons

    Underpays, cuts corners at employees and patients expense. Needing a VP to sign off when we were ordering pens. Being spoken to by my manager because I took a lunch break off the hospital grounds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a job description states something like "must have college degree" either change the job description or hire someone with the background you are requesting.
