    I have been working at Barnes-Jewish Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working here as a new grad for 10 months and I love it. When we work 2 or 3 days in a row, we are almost always given our same patients back. This was a great place for me to start my first nursing job, I am learning something new every day at work!

    Cons

    Sometimes we can be short staffed and have 5 patients per nurse. This only happens on night shift though

    I worked at Barnes-Jewish Hospital (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to grow. Great staff. Fair compensation. Amazing place to learn and gain experience that you may not receive at other facilities.

    Cons

    Limited work and home life balance since most RN positions are 12 hours and rotate weekends and holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Consider 8 or 10 hour shifts for staff needing home life balance

    Pros

    The hospital does acknowledge their employees when they have worked for them over a year

    Cons

    Waiting a year to apply for a position, when your not happy where you are working. They should say 6 months after your hired, then apply for another position. Making people suffer or causing people to walk away from the job is not good on their part.

    Advice to Management

    Management should take classes on how to deal with different personality in the workplace. I also feel that every employee is good at certain things at their job responsibility and should be acknowledged as well. Some managers also are too friendly with certain employees. Meaning; they tell their favorite employees about things going on the office and with other people. That right there will made me not trust management. BJH has to do better when choosing mangers. A degree doesn't necessarily make you qualified to be a leader.

    I worked at Barnes-Jewish Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Top Notch cutting edge care from Doctors.
    Pay was ok

    Cons

    Couple of bullies. I was berated in front of staff/patients and doctors. Management fosters charge nurse bully demeanor because she runs the department well. They lost 6 nurses at one time wonder why.
    Most older nurses aren’t friendly don’t include you in conversation. Allow certain peoples to stay because they are good at their job however are allowed to speak to people however they want. Bullying and favoritism. Charge nurse repeatedly screams at staff. No support from management. Will never work for Bjc again.

    Advice to Management

    Stop fostering a bully atmosphere, get rid of the real problem nurse, listen to your staff and you will retain nurses.
