    Pros

    I am a nurse here. Some people who wants to be a nurse thinks that it's easy money! Especially our newbies everywhere wants to be on the top already. Y'all need to earn it, you need sacrifice and passion and mostly you need to love what you are doing.

    Cons

    Not really understaffed but people keep calling out because they have no love for their work.

    Advice to Management

    Gratification on everyone.

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice Property bank....but that's all

    Cons

    Pay is low in comparison to other hospitals, there's a lot of red tape, no consistency in their practices, lot of favoritism. It's not what you know but who you know....and this applies for everything. ..promotions, salary increases and covering up for people. They always say working here is like being with family but it's not true at all!

    Advice to Management

    Work on communication, changes need to come from the top

    Pros

    A teaching hospital that encourages all employees to use information technology to improve healthcare delivery. People are very friendly and nice there, easy to work with.

    Cons

    when you see how people are working here, you will find that all people here are energetic. The senior manager who I work with is a physician who want to using information technology to improve their scheduling work. Which means if you have to have the spirit of innovation if you want to work here.

    Pros

    It prepares you for a career in law enforcement because you are constantly dealing with many different types of people. You see much more in security here on 2nd and 3rd shift.

    Cons

    Supervisors and management don't support the employee. You can do everything right and still you get stabbed in the back.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to work with your employees, Not against them.

    Pros

    The mission and value based standards set forth. The appreciation received based on their program and services they provide to their patients within the community.

    Cons

    When you observe a lose of a patient on a unit, however being able to assist the family during this time by collaborating with other peers makes a big difference to your patient. Employees to work together as a team as outlined in the Mission set forth.

    Advice to Management

    To be a great leader (Director, Manager or Supervisor) is to lead by example and empower your employees to do the same.

    Pros

    The nursing staff's skills are frequently tested. You will learn to think on your feet or run off screaming into the night. After working at St. Joe's Paterson ED you will be able to work anywhere. Management is fair. Supportive co-workers. Job security. Competitive pay.

    Cons

    Hectic and sometimes dangerously short staffed. But I think this is typical in any hospital setting but more serious in this case since a lot of the patient are critically ill.

    Advice to Management

    Let your staff know when they are doing a good job. Allow them to feel supported and safe at work.
