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

    Pros

    Good benefits. Exposure to cutting edge technology and procedures.

    Cons

    Always short-staffed. Nurse to patient ratio higher than what you're told when hired and unsafe for high acuity patients. Constantly changing policies & procedures which you are required to keep yourself abreast of. No nurse advocacy, contrary to what they say at Orientation. Inconsistent rule enforcement. Uninvolved management relies on hearsay to form opinions & base their action on, instead of knowing individuals. Throw employees under the bus, even if a difficult patient of family member complains. If you like the feeling of working with "a gun to your head" and inadvertently making a wrong move, then BJH is for you!

    Advice to Management

    Don't set unattainable standards just so you will have a way to discipline or terminate employees at will. Have more than Nurse Managers decide if a nurse can advance or transfer.
