    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Hackensack Meridian Health full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Working with great people. Team work. Good benefits.

    Cons

    No one in management cares about the health, safety, or well being of its employees. They will not look out for you and they don’t care about safe staffing ratios. They will look for any reason to deny raises or not let you use your PTO. Meridian was an amazing place to work years ago. Hackensack has completely ruined working at any of their campuses. It is a corporatized nightmare. Steer clear. When i became a nurse years ago all i wanted was to work for Meridian. Now it is the most unwelcoming horrible place to work.
