    Pros

    Great benefits and union allows your job security. After some time and time accumulated, job allows days off when have emergency. Great place to gain experience when starting a career in healthcare.

    Always short staff. When people get exposed to the flow of the hospital they leave. It is a fast moving place. Always on your feet and hours are needed for overtime always.

    Pros

    You learn so much as there's a lot of opportunities on the floor. RNs are mostly very helpful and willing to teach. Salary is only average. Health benefits average. Work environment average.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with the floor nurses. Little to none support from management. Always short staff. The staff bathrooms are gross.

    Advice to Management

    Increase RN to patient ratio. Replace better quality patient care staff who have the passion to work and help the patients timely. A lot of patients care have been working in this hospital for too long and they lack the motivation to work.

    I have been working at Bellevue Hospital Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job security. Pension. That's about it.

    Cons

    The system protects employees who are inappropriate, sometimes wildly so, and villainizes those who would call them out for the safety of all. I've known several staff members who have been hurt, harassed, and abused, and it has happened to me.

    Advice to Management

    Well, where to begin? At least fill all the lines with full-time, properly paid and qualified staff so there can be some semblance of safety.
