    I worked at RWJBarnabas Health full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You get Union pay and benefits.

    We used to have better patient ratios. It’s all about the bottom dollar now. But that’s everywhere in healthcare, and they’re still better than most.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Coworkers, doctors and programs make it even better.

    Cons

    Cons

    Getting better compensation was always a battle. It was difficult to take time off. Little to no upward mobility.
