    Employees and staff are very nice and helpful. Per diem hours are amazing for any full time college student. They are very flexible and understanding.

    Cons

    Some challenges are having to report to work during snow storm warnings but this is expected when working for any hospital.

    I have been working at Saint Peter's University Hospital full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Saint Peters University Hospital continues to be a vibrant part of the central New Jersey health care options. Like a David in a land of giants, St Peters, a relatively small health care system, competes with Robert Wood Johnson, Meridian, Barnabas in the central Jersey market as a vibrant option in the area. St Peters UH is a Magnet Hospital for five consecutive times and hold many other significant awards and accolades.

    Cons

    There has been a rotation of top level management in the past few years which always brings a sense of instability to the culture with every change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistent and meaningful dialogue with employees

    I worked at Saint Peter's University Hospital as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Close to mass transit. Coworkers are good.

    Cons

    Management had no clue nor backbone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the impact of your decisions. Should be common sense to upper management, but they need to be told. IT Management bought a $XXmil software package that did not work. They also made IT the # to call when there was no toilet paper, when patients wanted to be discharged, or needed food. Not exactly what one desires in IT. All because the IT director had no backbone. All I can say is "maybe it's better now". I think those responsible for the decision that wasted millions of dollars are now gone. Maybe they learned from their mistakes?

    I have been working at Saint Peter's University Hospital part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Meaningful Holiday Parties where free food is given out to all staff.Generous Pay, You get a raise every year, Employee Health Office, Onsite Pharmacy , Starbucks located inside main hospital, Restaurant with decent prices located inside the hospital, affordable employee cafeteria food. Kind Managers who care about you.

    Cons

    If you work on How lane you are treated like a step child.There is no food in the cafeteria,no restaurant, no starbucks, no gift shop,no employee health, no pharmacy, no nothing. When it comes to food you will have to either bring your own lunch, eat out, or survive off the food in the vending machine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please equip S.P.U.H. satellite locations with the same amenities as the main hospital.Doing so would be much appreciated.
