        Disapproves of CEO

        I have been working at Hackensack University Medical Center full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        Doctors and most coworkers are pleasant to work with. Tuition assistance is available.

        Cons

        The management is grossly incompetent. Company culture is extremely toxic. Employees are treated as expendable. Many nurses are rude and do not center patient care. Salary and raises is extremely low.

        Advice to Management

        Retrain and/or replace management from the top down, including Directors. Human Resources should advocate for employees and not just managers. Salary for non-clinical staff should be market rate.

        I have been working at Hackensack University Medical Center full-time for more than 9 years

        Pros

        Location, employees get free parking

        Cons

        Management does not know what it’s doing. Everything is done last minute, policies change day to day. Treated like a number, benefits get worse every year, only get treated well if you’re caucasian

        Advice to Management

        Treat everyone equally. Stop playing favorites. Be better leaders, try to be better support in times of need/crisis

        No opinion of CEO

        I have been working at Hackensack University Medical Center full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        benefits if you can get them (and your any race but white)

        Cons

        Management: no direction, no training, bad management. Benefits: was lied to that my medical application was completed by HR. When it came time to see if it was approved, I found out the application was half way completed . Had to wait 3 more months to get it.

        Advice to Management

        All should be fired. This place is going down hill. No one knows what is going on, everything is last minute.
