      Pros

      Good place to work. It is fast paced but manageable. Managers are willing and able to work around your schedule and it’s a decent area to drive

      Cons

      There are very limited parking spots on campus available. If you’re a new hire you’ll have to park very far away.

      Very Disorganized

      Pros

      Great pay, lots of opportunities for incentive and making a ton of overtime, hospital reputation for being one of the best, great coworkers (depending of course)

      Cons

      Very poorly organized. My unit is extremely short-staffed with high turnover and management can't seem to do a thing to help it. I applied and interviewed for a full time position but was placed into a part time position (but working full time hours) so my benefits and bonuses were worse. This is the type of thing Hackensack does to save money. They don't even attempt to adequately staff units and stress their nurses out beyond belief. The entire covid situation is completely being manhandled. You'd think a hospital of this size with how many administrators would help out and try to fix things but nothing ever seems to get better. Nurses are expected to say 4-5 very sick step down patients regularly and then get sent countless emails about documentation, audits, paperwork not being done correctly. Coming from a hospital that was very supportive to coming here was a shell shock to say the least.
