    I worked at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A very reputable hospital with dedicated doctors and high-level care, so you receive gratification with the work you contribute. The hospital is also taking major strides with their appearance, constructing new areas and modernizing the facility and technology which gives you a sense of pride as an employee. The environment is very professional (but many of the things that occur behind closed doors contradict that statement). Yet, the majority of the people you work with are very educated, articulate, and formal. I have met so many amazing and dedicated people in this job. The hospital organizes many great community events and employee events. Its a moderately big hospital, but still small enough where you feel at home and know everyone's name. Good work-life balance, I never really ever worked over-time or ever worked a weekend (yet while you are in work, you work hard. Never took lunch, it was frowned upon by management. Always ate at my desk). Decent benefits and fairly decent paid time-off (yet difficult to get approval for personal days. tend to be scorned for it). Good leadership, new CEO Warren Geller is a strong, forward-thinking, respectable, and gracious person. I hope he is able trickle this down into the middle management where the biggest issues exists.

    Cons

    Its a very political environment thus its difficult to advance if you don't have the right connections. Nepotism is in every department and are awarded positions even if they aren't qualified for the role, and they are treated with favoritism above everyone else. Sexual harassment and sex scandals are out of control, even former CEO Doug Duchak was accused of sexual harassment making public headlines and going to trial. The individuals who are negatively effected are all afraid to speak up, because it is known that HR has slime authority to make changes and are also politically tied. You work very hard, and aren't properly compensated. This hospital is one of the lowest paying hospitals in NJ, with the exception of Nursing. Nursing has one of the highest wages in the state. The business departments are low staffed, so you are overwhelmed and play multiple roles. Middle management will always take credit for your work, and never let you appear before their peers (they assure to keep you from getting praise or stealing their thunder).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go of the political nature, let HR be neutral so that they can be effective, allow for better transparency so that managers can't be abusive or inappropriate to their staff. Change the culture so that employees feel they are entitled to breaks without being reviled for it, feel they can advance in their careers, and aren't afraid to speak up when something is evidently wrong.
