    Pros

    Union workplace, healthcare for the less fortunate, and the largest hospital in the great state of New Jersey.

    Cons

    Shortstaffing leads to a stressful workplace, lack of staff and supplies negatively impact patient care and safety.

    Advice to Management

    Please review your practies and listen to your nurses, therapists, pharmacists, social workers, addiction counselors, housekeepers, and everyone who serve our special populations.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to mix in new blood

    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 Management

    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.

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

    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 Management

    Try treating people with respect and telling them the truth.
