    I worked at Hackensack University Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Challenging, fast-paced environment. Great learning experience and variety of patient cases. Great pay and raises.

    Cons

    Poor management-high nurse manager turnover rate, nurse managers get bonuses for staying underbudget not for quality care. poor nurse-patient staffing ratios considering high patient acuity.

    Advice to Management

    Support nurses so they do not fear management when errors are made, staff high acuity units appropriately ie stepdown units

    I worked at Hackensack University Medical Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    The Hospital has declined over the years. It's sad how money and prestige have gotten in the way of treating staff with respect and good health care practices for the patients. It is so understaffed that it is inevitable things will go wrong. Unfortunately, I think the moment in life when something so bad happens will be the only time the hospital will change, but by then it will be too late. They have the attitude that employees are replaceable and yes that is true and trust me leaving Hackensack was the best decision I made. SO if they replace you, they are doing you a favor.

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice because advice is wasted on them.

    I have been working at Hackensack University Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Fancy Purell dispensers and clean floors.

    Cons

    CNO hired brother in law after he was fired. He favors two nurses and that is discrimination. CNO doesn’t CARE about nurses. ER tells staff nurses to take 8-9 patients when floor ratio is much less. No one gives a hoot. Oh and NO BREAKS.

    Advice to Management

    Weed your garden. You are too top heavy and you don’t care about the worker bees. Implement a patient - staff ratio. Hire from within and not from Valley -it’s insulting to those who want to advance.
