    I worked at Hackensack University Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Most of my coworkers are hardworking and I enjoyed working with them. We do little things to try to make it feel like we are a family (not that the managers ever contribute or participate).

    Cons

    Management plays favorites; they are very cliquey and too bad if you are not on their good side. It's impossible to take off when you want or need to. Management talks down to the little people; they know the economy is bad and constantly remind us we are replaceable. They micromanage us; they sit in their office and watch us work, then they will come out to boss you around. We have half a dozen supervisors in our department, all running around saying different things, each one with different ideas about every minute detail of how we should work, how the workflow should be. They sit in their offices and spy on us all day, then they each come out and complain about how we are working and try to correct us, sometimes contradicting what another supervisor tells us to do. They tell us what time to go to lunch. If it is overly busy, they won't let you go to lunch, even if you came in at 6 am and it is already 1pm. We are constantly shortstaffed because everyone hates working here. We are forbidden from telling anyone else outside our department that we are shortstaffed when they ask us why the orders are taking so long to come out. I am sure they would whip and beat us if it weren't illegal to assault your employees- "why can't you work faster, you pharmacy monkey."

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect. Just treat people like people. We are not your slaves, not your servants, not your deviant children.

    "You work very hard for not much recognition. They will always find a way to ask you to do more without compensation."

    Pros

    I love the people I work with, everyone works hard and tries to make the best of things. Hackensack has a great name so it's well recognized.

    Cons

    Lack of recognition and more and more expectations of nursing staff. They may have the best rating but it still treats staff not so well.
